ASMR Ocean & Underwater Sounds - Hydrophone Sound Effects

by freetousesounds



Hi Guys,

These recordings are from Penang, Malaysia. I drove from Georgetown to the west side of Penang to an area called Batu Ferringhi. If you up for water sports that is the place to go. You can do waterski, banana boats, jet skies or even parasailing.

I was only there to record ocean sounds. In the off-season, there is not so much going but in some recording, you can listen to a jet ski in the distance or people in the water.
The recordings above the water are only around two minutes each because the wind was too strong for the small windjammers. I focused more on the hydrophone sounds this time.

NOTE 01.11.2018:
I am going to publish a library with only hydrophone recordings. After I made several new one here in Bali I will do this.

On my website, the most reviewed category is the "ASMR" section and if you haven't heard about it yet just "google" it and you will be surprised how many million people love "ASMR". If you do sound design maybe it pushes you in a new direction creating sounds.

I used two hydrophones and pushed them into the sand and let the waves brushing over. The waves in Penang are not high and not strong. Everything is very calm and relaxing.
You will hear some crackling sounds and the waves. I did the recording in the daytime until the rain started.

I hope you can use these sounds!

If you have already access to my “Complete Library” you can find these sound recordings in the “Malaysia Category-Malaysia Penang 6.October 2018 Edited Tracks”
