Pro Sound Effects has released its latest library, Submerged.

Featuring 230 sound effects recorded using a hydrophone (underwater microphone), Submerged is a collection of underwater sounds that enables sound professionals to harness the unique sonic properties of water in any audio project.

Submerged includes uniquely captured sound effects such as 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 needed for any underwater scene.

Created in collaboration with Colin Hart and Joseph DiMarco of Big Tree Media, the library is designed to provide possibilities for otherworldly sound design with distinct underwater actions and immersive perspectives.

“Hydrophones opened up a whole new world of sonic experiences to us,” says Colin Hart, recordist of Submerged. “This library offers a deep dive into our discoveries packaged as instantly usable sound effects.” As an additional resource to supplement Submerged, Hart has also published an informative guide to hydrophone recording strategies on the PSE Blog entitled “Tips for Recording Underwater Sound Effects with a Hydrophone.
