Anyone know of any sites whit downloadable "whooshing" and "thud" sounds used so often nowadays? I've had a look around but can't find anything, really. (By "thudding", I'm thinking of the kind of effect they often use in Doctor Who trailers

One handy hint for the whooshing effect is to take a cannon shot and reverse it, if you edit the reverse and forward one together with a slight overlap you get a good meteor going past effect.

We used this all the time on the sci-fi channel promos I used to do in london.

Thanks for the ideas, guys. I'm not a particular fan of "whooshing" (especially the Sky style of doing it every time a graphic appears onscreen) but there's something I'm about to work on where it might be useful.
