Intros (which are also exits) are the bookends of a video or video game. They provide a sense of continuity, much like a fiction story in which the first line is the same as the last line. Bumps, on the other hand, serve the same purpose but are used between scenes - a hard edge that quickly reinforces that something new is about to happen. And of course, stingers are essentially 1-3 second sound clips used to emphasize what was just said in the video or game (“Doh!”)

It can be hard to find Suspenseful Intros, Bumps and Stingers, but with SmartSound’s royalty-free music search, much of that work can be done in seconds rather than hours. In seconds you can find great tracks that can be customized by length and mood to suit the needs of any suspenseful scene.
