This thread was created as a place for fans to discuss, help identify, and catalog all the various sounds utilized by Akira Yamaoka during his time as composer/sound designer for the Silent Hill series.
The majority of sounds used for the creation of the Silent Hill soundtracks and in-game sound effects/ambience are samples/loops that originate from commercially available sample libraries produced by companies such as Big Fish Audio, Zero-G, Spectrasonics, etc. If you have uncovered any of these sounds and wish to contribute to this thread, please feel free to do so. However, you should first make an effort to make sure that what you're posting hasn't already been posted. Utilize the search function, or skim through the thread first.
Also, uploading and linking to individual samples is fine, but do not
attempt to share or ask for complete libraries. And, per forum rules, do not
share links to warez/torrent/whatever sites or music/sounds from the Silent Hill soundtracks/games. That's a no no.
General discussion regarding production techniques and equipment used by Akira Yamaoka is also welcome here.
This is a compilation of sounds listed throughout this thread. It will be periodically updated:Sample folder previewSample folder download
