Sound library company Pro Sound Effects has released its latest library, Submerged. Submerged is a boutique collection of underwater sounds, featuring 230 sound effects recorded using a hydrophone (underwater microphone), which enables sound professionals to harness “the unique sonic properties of water” in any audio project.
Submerged includes sound effects like underwater fireworks explosions, cyclones, air releases, and cracking ice, as well as fundamental water sounds including bubbling, bubble streams, splashing, rushing/dripping water and an assortment of underwater vocalizations which producers might need for creating an underwater scene. The Submerged library is designed to provide “possibilities for otherworldly sound design” with distinct underwater actions and immersive perspectives.
As an additional resource to supplement Submerged, Colin Hart, the recordist of Submerged, has also published an informative guide to hydrophone recording strategies on the PSE Blog.
