Ultimate Ice HD Pro Sound Effects Library contains a whopping 715 cracks, impacts, scrapes, rubs, tension and icicle debris sounds. Recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz and over 4 freaking cold North Idaho winters in the making this new professional sound library will give you the chills.
Ice has tons of character depending on how cold the environment is. It can sound brittle, crunchy, solid, wet and like glass. It has many uses in audio production for video games, film and television but is most useful for keeping your beer cold.
As a naturally occurring crystalline inorganic solid with an ordered structure, ice is considered a mineral. It possesses a regular crystalline structure based on the molecule of water, which consists of a single oxygen atom covalently bonded to two hydrogen atoms, or H-O-H. However, many of the physical properties of water and ice are controlled by the formation of hydrogen bonds between adjacent oxygen and hydrogen atoms. It is a weak bond, but is critical in controlling the structure of both water and ice.
Ice is one of the sound sources I’ve Used the most in the video games I’ve worked on. Whether it was for magic spells, fantasy weapons, impacts, or ice caves, I never had enough ice source material. After spending years trying to design fresh, new ice-based sound effects using the same old library sounds, I decided it was time to create my own personal collection.
I started recording ice soon after I moved to North Idaho in 1997. Living up here in the middle of nowhere gives me the ability to record lots of ice and snow. We have six very long months of winter so I am always at the ready to run outside very early in the morning to record the latest overnight ice formations.
The ice in this collection represents my latest recordings at 24-Bit 96kHz. I hope you find these sounds as useful in your audio design as I have.
