About the Sound Effects Library


This high-quality library of ‘Ice – Tension, Creaking & Breaking’ contains 194 royalty-free tracks of premium easy-to-edit source material. From high-impact ice breaking, smashing and squeaking, to high-definition tensions creaks, both on ice and in water.


‘Ice – Tension, Creaking & Breaking’ was recorded using a Sennheiser Mkh416, an Aquarian Audio H2a XLR, a Røde NT4r and a Sounddevices 702 Recorder. – Contains 206 mono and stereo files at 96K, alongside a selection of 192K recordings, 680 MB wav. files. Delivered as a single Zip file download.

This library includes many ice impact sounds, tension cracks and breaks. While most of these sounds were recorded inside a dense pine forest (in a remote part of Sweden), a session was also made back in Denmark too. A great lake, which was completely frozen earlier in the year was beginning to break up into smaller pieces.

Library includes:

  • Very long tension creaking sounds
  • Multiple breaking sounds
  • Ice impacts on ice
  • Ice impacts into ice water

These impacts of ice on ice, and ice into ice water, were recorded with a Sennheiser Mkh 416 standing in land, capturing the splashes and more bright sounds, and more interestingly, an Aquarian Audio H2A XLR hydrophone, capturing the underwater sounds. The downloadable tracks are a mix of both.
