Sound effects name

Hey guys, what do you call the class of sound effects in television or movie trailers, etc., when there is like a boom and a simultaneous jump cut to a dramatic scene or text? eg., (boom) COMING (boom) 06-15-08 (boom) TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU, etc., the sound I'm referring to is like a timpani drum, etc. I want to find some variations of these sound effects but don't know the term used to describe them. Thanks in advance. In addition if anyone knows where I might start looking for them that would be great as well...

Sounds to me like you are referring to the highly overused, tired and lame, "Whoosh". There are many different packages of them all over the web, you can try www.sounddogs.com or check out all of the usual suspects like Digital Juice, Sound Ideas, etc.

If it's not the "Whoosh", it might be the "Boom" or "Thump", just look for sound effects element packages.

Just don't over use them, they have been done into the ground already ;-)

I think collectively they are called "grams". I don't know the origin of the word but pretty sure it does back to radio.

Phono-gram

Still refereed to as grams in broadcast.
It used to mean anything played in off a vinyl record and 1/4 tape cartridges as well which the grams where often carted up onto for ease of use.

These days it is normally hard drive mini disc cd etc..
It does not refer to a specific effect such as a whoosh.

Standbye grams...
Go grams...
Grams op. etc..

Matt, that is exactly what I'm looking for! Thank you...it IS great stuff! Decent price too.

The names of the sounds I was referring too are "impacts", apparently.

The Video CoPilots guys are geniuses, I'm also ordering their other stuff. Amazing.
