Download hundreds of royalty-free ambient underwater sounds

Die-hard nature sounds lover Marcel Gnauk has returned with his second royalty-free collection of underwater sound recordings, collected from all over the world. Once again, he’s giving them away for free.

The library includes ambient and unique ocean, river, waterfall and harbour sounds from the waters of Cyprus, Vietnam, Bali, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Take a mental vacay to the waters of Cyprus, Vietnam, Bali, Singapore and Malaysia with a library of royalty-free underwater sounds. Or, add some ambient depth to your next project.

Founded in 2016 in Siem Reap, Cambodia with a recorder in hand, Marcel and Libby Gnauk aka FreeToUseSounds archived their very first sound recording, Cambodian Women Sifting Gravel at a Construction Site. Three years, over 20 countries, and thousands of recordings later, they’re still just as excited to capture soundscapes and share them for free.

Earlier this year, Marcel released a library of ocean sounds captured in California, Costa Rica, the Caribbean, Japan and more. He’s wasted no time in following it up with a second set of underwater recordings sure to add some ambient depth to whatever musical composition or sound design project you’re working on.

The collection includes 30 tracks and over 80 minutes of sounds such as underwater motion coming from boat propellers, a chain rattle, a breathing frog, cracklings from little crabs and other creatures, a stone rubbing on the sand, ocean waves, fast and slow creeks and streams, and waterfall bubbles.

“All sounds in this sound library have metadata and can be used royalty free and used for sound design, post production and in musical composition without limitation. What means you can use the original source file and recreate the sounds as you wish and sell them again or use them for your own productions.”

All of the tracks can be streamed or downloaded via Bandcamp, with a name-your-price download link that Marcel has encouraged to enter as $0.
