Hey everyone! Don't know if this has been discovered before but I was recently on a search for some spooky sound effects when I came upon a CD called mystery and terror sounds. Upon listening to track previews on Amazon I was amazed to find that the track entitled "Mad ape" was in fact a fairly clear recording of the slimer sound effects from the first Ghostbusters movie. I was just curious if anyone knows of this and if there are any more recordings of this nature.
HERE is the link.

Considering how often SFX like these are remixed or blended for movies (see: anything Ben Burtt has ever done), it's pretty amazing how little this was modified for the movie. Nice catch!

Does anyone know the origin of proton pack startup sound? Just wondering because I've heard that sound used in an anime series and I think I've heard it elsewhere too.

Anyways, nice find. It's always strange to find out that a sound you've always distinguished from a certain movie of your childhood, is actually a stock sound.

I was under the impression that Ivan Reitman Performed all of the slimmer grunts and growls. I wonder if the sound clip was created for GB and later sold as a stock sound or if it was already a stock sound to begin with.

my guess is that reitman did the sounds for when slimer was in the hallway. it's a bit different than the grunts and growls.

After watching the movie again that does seem to be the case. I wonder if any of the Reitman sounds still exist, or even stay puft sounds. I always thought he had an interesting sound.

anyone ever heard the Baltimore song Tarzan boy, I always thought the "monkey sounds" I believe sounded similar to Slimer

take a listen at 1:23

Not saying it is, but the fact that it's a jungle themed song...curious!

AJ's reaction to the first post pretty well sums it up for me.

Nice find!

I know that this thread is kind of old but I also stumbled on to some sound effects from the film.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/essential-death-horror-sound/id480123172

Track 21 - The Mad Gorilla was used for Slimer.
Track 35 & 38 might be the book case that falls in the Library.
Track 45 sounds kinda familiar

There is a track 91, "Boiling Oil", on the original release that sounds like it was used for the terror dog in Dana's kidnapping.

These are from BBC's vault so there is a chance the original proton sounds and other sounds effects are also from the other various BBC releases.

910dohead-- COOL! I love this stuff.

According to GB Sound Designer Richard Beggs, the Ectomobile siren was a processed leopard snarl. Wild!

The three werewolves howling was used in No One Comes To Lupusville. The Mad Gorilla was not only used in the movie, but was also used in When Halloween Was Forever.

I went ahead and purchased the Mad Gorilla track, since it only cost 99 cents.

It's a tiny bit longer than the sample (duh) and toward the end there's a piece that I think might have been used when Slimer is softly growling, as Venkman radios to Ray the first time.

Or I could just be imagining it.
