About the library
Glacier Ice is a library containing over 300 high quality sounds of ice cracking, breaking, shattering in various sizes of blocks. The library contains sounds of all dimensions, from ice cubes being dropped in a drink to a designed iceberg collapsing.
The majority of the material was recorded at 192 KHz with a Sanken CO100K and a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040, making this library greatly flexible for pitch shifting and all sorts of heavy processing.
A small section recorded at 96KHz features sounds recorded exclusively with contact microphones placed directly on the surface of a frozen water stream.
The collection was recorded over the course of two winters entirely in the Italian Alps.
