Tips for using royalty-free scary music
Below, find some of our best tips for making the most out of our scary music library.
- Use restraint. If you’re creating a project intended to scare audiences, it can be attempting to go all out with loud music, sound effects, and jump scares. But sometimes, the scariest effect comes from low, creeping, quiet horror.
- Find your arc. Of course, to really terrify your audience, you can always use an unexpected burst of energy. Either way, understanding the arc of your project can help you know when to hold back and when to explode with fear.
- Layer effects. For the best result, we recommend adding some sound effects to your project. Noises like doors creaking, wind blowing, and whispers can all make a huge impact to take your project to the next level.
