Make waves in your projects with King Collection: Watercraft – featuring world-class ship and boat sound effects from the private library of Academy Award®-winning sound artist Richard King (Dunkirk, Master and Commander) – available exclusively from Pro Sound Effects. Developed in collaboration with King, this impressive collection delivers invaluable water vessel sounds expertly captured by industry-leading recordists with the resources of a Hollywood budget.
Be prepared for any scene with detailed sounds from 24 types of watercraft both modern and historical – including late-1700s tall sailing ships, high-speed motorboats, sailboats, ocean liners, ferries, tugboats, and more. Build your sonic world with impeccable recordings of engines and maneuvers plus tons of related material including mechanical and cabin sounds, huge waves crashing on deck, dripping water, creaking wood, flapping sails, whining hydraulics, horn honks, and harbor ambience.
Thorough multi-mic recordings synced from unique interior and exterior perspectives allow you to blend your own designs to fit the needs of your project. Recorded with skilled attention to the way each boat interacts with the water and its machinery, as well as the perceived onboard experience of passengers, these multi-channel sounds are perfect for creating drama and realism when cutting between shots and scenes.
Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
