hey there, im looking for an effect that can simulate water really well, an underwater type sound, vibration, like a torpedo going through the water, waves cascading into each .... if anyone can recommend something similar would be appreciated....

Ever tried chorus?
Tremolo also reminds me of the ocean

I'm thinking a good spring reverb that has extreme settings available, and maybe a little delay as well as that chorus.
Somewhere in there, you'll find the truth.
Oh, and don't forget, if you get a real spring reverb, you can always kick it for the sproinggggg.

Maybe a phaser set to a quick rate would also help increase the effect?

Take the Way Huge Aqua Puss and dunk it in a glass of water.
J/K! I always thought a light phase effect had some underwater-y vibes to it. But what you're describing is probably some combination of modulation effects ... if I were you I might try something like the Line 6 MM4 and layer a couple of things together ...

flanger set fast, and some delay?

Univibe (+ mucho reverb + medium delay)?

Contact mikes and a big metal wash basin full of water, is how I do it.

a combination seems to be common thread....spring reverb my amp can give, hmm sounds like i will have to do a little experimenting at the store.... thanks for the tips- Im actually hoping to apply it to a vocal...

Phaser can do it on it's own....I'd check there first (but the other suggestions will probably work as well giving you multiple flavours of water from tap to bottled and beyond!)

All good suggestions but nothing does water like water.

I record water sound all the time its a question I really relate to.
January 19th, 2010, 02:52 PM
Okay.... maybe not strange.... just different.
Hannigan, do you have any examples?? I'm not sure what y'all are reffering to.

Yes I could I guess this is a good time to set up another water effects rig ,my bathtub is a big part of my set up so its a bit of a pain but fun.
I will need to take pictures to properly explain what Im doing,
So ill have to face my learning curve and learn my photo stuff then after that sound clips.
I used water sounds on my group Weapon Shops album Do Not Listen but they are mixed in an almost unrecognizable way.
so stay tuned Im working on it .

Sounds interesting....I can't wait to hear the clips!

I think this sound would just me want to go to the bathroom more than I already do. Damn prostate!
