I think I got something you can use. Mannheim Steamroller has a Halloween CD that is available through I-Tunes. Tracks 1, 3 and 7 sound exactly like what you`ve described, and track 3 includes human moaning that is extremely creepy...

Big Scream TV has the Howls & Growls CD (Big Scream CD 6) that may just fit the bill for you. Inexpensive too. $4.99 for the CD or $3.49 for download. I'll link to the product page. Most of the CDs have an audio cut to listen to. I've bought from them before--Thunderstorm CD--good people (also sponsors here) and the CD was shipped very quickly. I was happy with my purchase. Can't beat the price.

Welcome to the LightForm Productions Store

Poison Props also has some Halloween music and sound effects CD that might interest you. The sound effects CDs run a bit more (mostly $29.99), but I think from what you describe you'd want one of the ambient CDs ($15.95), graveyard wind maybe or crickets/swamp. I think I purchased their crickets/swamps and the haunted pirate ship last year. I guess it's that time of year to dig them out of wherever I stored them...

He frequents the "other" forum that you posted the same question to. Password is the name of that forum (all one word and lower case) "h---tf---m"

He's got some great stuff!

I also just listened to Poison's F/X cd samples... Wow! Excellent too!

There's a set of CD sound effects out - it may be the "Big Scream" CD set Ghost of Spookie mentioned - that has continuous sound FX of a specific element - thunderstorm, howling wind, chainsaw, etc. It works great when you need a specific type of sound for a certain part of your haunt.

I'm a firm believer in owls as ambience, be it the booming hoot of the Great Horned Owl, the eerie whinny of the Screech Owl, the human-like shriek of the Barn Owl or the hooting laughter of the Barred Owl.

And no, I did not get the Screech and the Barn mixed up. The Screech owl has a whistling whinny, common in horror films. It doesn't screech much at all. The Barn owl sounds like a startled old woman.
In fact, if you wanna hear a Barn Owl, watch "My Cousin Vinny". A Screech Owl was used for the close-up, but a Barn Owl's call was used for the audio because the filmakers quickly realized that the Screech Owl doesn't quite live up to it's name.

For our British and Irish friends, there's the mournful "Twee-whit Twee-whoo" of the Tawny Owl.

Get to know your owls. Use a local call in your graveyard as the predominant sound. Tricksters will stop and look for the bird - honest.

I have a family of Barn Owls who frequent my redwood trees every night - if I was smart, I would record their calls. The first time I heard the mom screeching I thought the devil had me. Would make for a great Halloween sound effect. LOL
