    Hi friend!
    Roland has a card named SRJV XP Soul Jazz that has dozens of sampled vinyl scrateches, very well recorded and processed. I myself use a few in my future release in 2 songs.
    Howevr, you will need some JV XP compatible module so as to play them. Maybe a friend of yours might have one to borrow/rent?
    Also, try a search at google.com.
    I can look here also
    Nice week

    sorry, are you asking me or the original author?
    The SR JV card you can buy used in the USa for less than $150 I guess, which is the Brazilian street price nowadays.

    There are a number of pay per sample web sites out there. I have tried out some of the freebee examples and they are fair to passable. However, I didn't try any of the "expensive" sites.

    I prefer making my own sounds. If I can't make the sounds I need I usually buy CD or CD-ROM sets.

    If you are in a hurry, you can use the wind, thunder and storm presets of GM

    You know, I never realized how effective drastic varispeeding (as in, stretching without preserving tempo OR pitch) can be used to make some really eerie sounds.

    Typewriter, minus two octaves - hair-standing-on-end

    Sample of WW2 aircraft, plus two octaves - creepy wail

    A little off topic, but you might find this useful. Be inventive.

    Get a receptionist desk bell, record that, then make the pitch start at -2 octaves and dip even more very slowly after the attack, and dip the volume at random intervals. You have your own creepy gothic bell.

    Oh the love of sound design... A decent mic, a little processing power and you've got years of fun. The bell idea sounds cool but why stop there??! I recorded my fridge running a while back for some room tone in a short film that I was working on. Shift that down a few octives, add some fat reverb and gate it. Great solid kick.

    Michael, similar thing here.
    We were producing the soundtrack for a short lenght movie.
    Ithought we were going to record drums.
    So, before the musical director arrives, my tech jumped to the drums and I recorded a 2 minute groove.

    The big guy arrived and....
    He liked the demo groove so much and we ended up pitch shifting it 2 octaves down. It sounded like a King Diamond patch -lol

    All the soundtrack terror scenes were developed towards that terror groove
