Servo noise can be dampened with foam and a hard plastic or metal cover.
Pneumatics noise can be dampened with silencers or mufflers or even a piece of tubing. It the hiss is coming from a cylinder you can route the exhausted air away from the location with a tube or a hose.

Yep, That's the best answer I think....I got a couple silencers in the last monsterguts kit I got but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.....I used loud audio last year as that seems to be what most haunted houses I've been in did....If the silencers make a big difference then I'll buy more for the rest of the system....ZR

I've heard of some where they route the exhaust air to another part of the haunt and use it as an ankle tickler or just a simple scare. The timing for that could be tricky though.

You could always run the exhaust lines to a pile of rubber snakes,........Give it that realism..... :D :eek: & hide the sound to an effect ! Maybe even a few ankle whippers with the snakes.

What I found worked best for me was to route the exhaust through a short piece of tubing into a foam box that was stuffed with a dishcloth and that had a few small holes in it to make sure it wasn't air tight. I also reduced the air pressure as far as I could. The result was silent. All if the different types of silencers I tried reduced the volume of sound but they still made a very noticeable high pitched hiss.

For servos, I turned up the sound. My skulls didn't have much space for insulation and what I put in didn't seem to help that well. I heard something on the radio yesterday while flipping channels about a foam glue that absorbs sound. I don't know anything else about it.

Edit: Found it. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound

I remember Dave the Dead over on HauntForum attaching a predator game call to the exhaust of a pneumatic prop. It created a scream that was creepy as hell.
Perfect!! :D
