I am looking for a soundfile that contains indiscernible whispers, like from an other world. Do you know a sound library that contains something like that?

Bela D Paravox has horrory whispers, actual words but they can be combined forwards + backwards for indiscernibility. You could also synthesize whispers with some singing synths and do randomly generated syllables, for total unintelligibility, Alter/Ego's good at manipulating phoneme speed and dynamics live so it can get really creepy or straight-up unnatural.

A couple of the Incantations sample sets by WestgateSounds would have fitted, but these days all the Incantations sets are sold in a single bundle.

Anomaly V - Voices of the Dead had a set of whispers....

viewtopic.php?t=230279

That soundset is now part of Anomaly Vol. 1, but I can offer Anomaly V from the Backlist as a special order.....

Thank you all. Is there an audio demo of the whispers in anomaly somewhere?

You could use Sonic Charge: Bitspeek

You can get whispering sorts of noises out of it. Take a wav file or whatever of some talking or whatever and effect it. Chop up lots of different source files first and add Bitspeek to taste.
Never buy something you don't want just because it's a bargain.

Thank you, dnekm. It's close to what I look for, but not quite there. A little bit too "intimidating". I will try to produce something myself, and if (when ;-) ) I fail, I'll try to use yours. PM me how much the package you offered me will be, please.

I will add a payment link to the Backlist tomorrow.

I am assuming you would want the WAV version and not the sf2?

It will be $10.

I will add the link, but will add the download files only if you order it. Items from the Backlist do not live on the server, but get added and removed as someone orders them.

I will post here again once it is done.

You could also just get a recorder and a decent mic and do your own whispers. It's what I'd do :shrug:

Gotta say, that's impressive customer service, bringing old products back to life.

Sorry for misremembering which sample set it was.

I have added Anomaly V as a separate listing on the Backlist page:

http://westgatesounds.net/backlist.html

and also added a purchase link on the Backlist order page:

http://westgatesounds.net/backlist2.html

Any older packages are always available upon request as well....
