Evoke chills with the enigmatic sounds of Waterphone, a captivating sound effects library that brings the haunting allure of this unique instrument to your fingertips. Created by sound artist Robert Kellough (Dune, Ant Man), this compact collection delivers a series of harmonic tonal washes conjured to transport your audience into realms of mystery and suspense.

A Waterphone is an uncommon musical instrument consisting of a resonating stainless steel bowl with metal rods of various lengths and thicknesses attached to it. The rods can be skillfully bowed or struck to create a wide range of ethereal and eerie tones. Its distinct sound is often associated with horror and thriller genres, and now you can harness its otherworldly sonic qualities to inject a sense of tension into your projects and leave your listeners spellbound.

Delivered in high resolution, the Waterphone library allows for transparent processing and manipulation, enabling you to mold its atmospheric sounds to fit your creative vision. Dive into a curated selection of dissonant swells, note clusters, high-pitched rings, glassy textures, and resonant reverberations.

Each sound file is embedded with rich, UCS-standardized 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.
