My musical sound effect for fear is stored at Media:Sound Of Fear.ogg. If you have MPlayer, you can download and listen to it. see the volume envelope (in green) in the picture above.

Making musical sound effects is both simple and easy. Can you do better? Robert Elliott 04:22, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
