From the PC game doom, one of the characters make an insane screaming noise that is reused in some movie, i cant think of it now. I havent played doom in a while, but i really need to know where i can find this scream noise because it is the single most disgusting noise in the world. if anyone has a copy of doom, please play it and understand why this scream is so important to me. From searching I thought it might have been the wilheim scream, but after listening to it, this scream is not the one, and it is in no way sufficient.

I've researched this too! It's a very famous stock sound clip used by many sound designers for myriad purposes. I haven't been able to track down the original source for it, and from my searching, no one else has, either. I'm sure it's so old that its out of copyright, whatever source its from.

Another funny stock sound clip is a certain falcon cry. Whenever you are introduced to a desolate landscape on the screen, this clip usually accompanies it. Also, it comes with almost any shot of a falcon flying.

Doom scream


Chandler,
I am glad that someone else out there knows what I am talking about. I agree with you on the copyright, afterall, it has been over a decade since doom originally came out. I downloaded Doom last night but unfortunately my sound card doesn't work with it, so every noise made was echoing and was barely legible.

Is it this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdbYs...eature=related

You can probably still download the shareware version of the game.

the reason some Doom sound effects are in some commercials, movies, tv, etc is beause they all came from the same effects library:

Yeah, I've definitely heard the same scream in a lot of different movies and games, but I've never been able to find out what it is, and it's not Wilhelm Scream.

OT: speaking of sounds used in games, anybody recognized an old 20 MB HDD sound on the first level of Unreal?

"gut wrenching scream and fall into distance"

And a whole website dedicated to it:

I don't remember it from Doom at all (or Army of Darkness either). I think I remember it from Starcraft though. I think it's the sound that's made when one of the human buildings is selected. The Doom sound effect I want to find out more about is the one that the Romero's Head makes when it spits out the monsters.

It sounds easy - where is the problem with finding Doom and level editor on the web?

I think its in doom, not sure, but the only reason I am pretty sure that it is is because me and my brother both remember this scream as being from it. It has been over 10 years since either of us played the game, but it just seems like it'd be too much of a coincidence for us to remember the same sound if it didnt come from doom. I think it was also in jurassic park maybe, something like that.

Yup, that is one of the screams I was talking about. There is a similar one, kind of ends in an "arrk" sound. Maybe I made that one up, though? =S

AHA I found that monster-spitting sound. It's from the same effects library I mentioned & it's called "Fire ball, impact and large fire burst rumble" which is on disc 6015, track 28-1:
