To learn more about how these sounds were created, and how to record your own underwater sound effects, here is a short video on hydrophone techniques from the recordist of Submerged:
Harness the unique sonic properties of water in your next project! Create otherworldly sound design with bubble streams, air bursts, immersive perspectives and more.
Submerged is a boutique sound effects library of swirling, bubbling, whooshing sounds recorded using a hydrophone (underwater microphone).
The variety of sounds featured in Submerged include scuba inhale/exhale/hiss, ice impacts and cracking, air release whooshing and bubbling, dry ice, pool pump hum, underwater fireworks explosions, cannon bursts, underwater movement, rushing water, dripping water, and an assortment of underwater vocalizations both male and female.
