This page is about five of MY WORST SOUND EFFECTS EVER!!!
All tend to be from The General Series 6000 Sound Effects Library, made by Canadian company, Sound Ideas Canada Ltd.. I will tell you guys why I hate them and why, and the sound effects are as follows:
If you disagree on any of these SFX I hate, please respect my opinion.
My Worst Sound Effects
5. Sound Ideas, HORSE - EXTERIOR: WHINNY, ANIMAL 06 - OMG. This is so harsh for what would otherwise have been an innocent horse whinny!!! It's invaded movies such as Elf, Narnia, and especially history movies like Braveheart, Julius Caesar (2002), and probably even The Crucible. Sounds so strong and irritating.
- Sounds like: MUAWAHWAHruh
- Nicole's opinion: It does not bother me, but I can see why it bothers you.
- Jacob’s opinion: I agree, this is the most annoying horse whinny I ever heard.
4. Sound Ideas, STEREO, TURNTABLE - NEEDLE SCRATCHING RECORD, RECORD PLAYER 02 - This is a very scary sound effect. It is very disturbing and irritating!.
Sounds like: a very electrocuting MZUuUuUuUuP
- Nicole's opinion: IF I HEAR THIS MOTHER F*CKING ABOMINATION ONE MORE MOTHER F*CKING TIME, I WILL LITERALLY HAVE THE URGE TO DRINK BLEACH!!
- Jacob’s opinion: This sound effect is such an annoyance. It sounds like a violent scratch!
3. Sound Ideas, COW - SINGLE MOO, ANIMAL 01 - It is a loud, obnoxious moaning. I just cannot stand it.
Sounds like: mmyyeerrOOAAUH
- Nicole's opinion: It is a bit bassy, so it can hurt my ears sometimes.
- Jacob’s opinion: See below.
2. Sound Ideas, COW - SINGLE MOO, ANIMAL 02 - The same as above, but longer.
Sounds like: stated above.
- Nicole's opinion: Same as above.
- Jacob’s opinion: Omg, who in their right mind would make this cow sound so freaking loud?!
MY #1 ARCH ENEMY OF ALL SOUND EFFECTS
1. Sound Ideas, BIRD, ROOSTER - MORNING CALL, ANIMAL 01 - This is my nemesis, from which I can tear up sometimes. It is an airy, grating effect that likely does not even come from an actual rooster, which explains why roosters never crow like this in real life. Who though that sound effect was a good idea, anyway?
Sounds like: ahh-AAHH GHGHGHGHGHGHGHAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!
- Nicole's opinion: The sound doesn't bother me. But I'm sorry you hate this sound so much, Alex.
- Jacob’s opinion: Who thought this crap of a sound effect was a good idea?! It’s fake and piercing!!!
Sound Ideas, HUMAN, BABY - CRYING - The Baby Kate cry, I find this sound effect to be a bit unnerving, but it does remind me of Arthur though.
Sound Ideas, CAT - DOMESTIC: SINGLE MEOW, ANIMAL 02 - It is a hit and miss, but I find it to be the most unnerving cat sound effect as it sounds like someone's crying a bit.
