Pirate ship ambient noise


Skull & Shackles


9 people marked this as a favorite.

I've been making a few custom audio environments with Softrope for my Skull&Shackles group and I thought I'd share some of what I've been working on:

5 minutes of pirate ship sounds

Naturally since the sounds in the video aren't randomly being selected like in softrope, it may get repetitive but I made it pretty long to compensate. If anyone wants a longer one or wants me to mix a different soundscape just let me know and I'll do it.
I like to play this one while I browse and pretend I'm at sea. Arrr!

I've been running this for anyone else on OSX: Go to Ambient Mixer and adding "Ship squeak" at random, 22 times every ten minutes.

You could also toss in crowd noises for busy activity on the ship, but I haven't previewed any of them yet, so I don't know how good they are for that purpose.

Hope this helps!


Great, thanks! My players have always been pretty adverse to music in our games, but I've been hoping to find something I can use.

Here's the link for a looped video!


Huh, it doesnt look like that works. Well, there you go. My youtube-fu is weaker than I thought.


You could also use this to download my vid as a sound file, then loop the sound file in your preferred media player. I used copyright-free sound effects so no worries there.

There are some other scenes in The Wormwood Mutiny that I want to make ambiences for:

Spoilers:
The creepy bilges, the storm on day 8, the beach on the island, and all those flooded grindylow tunnels come to mind.


That sounds great! Will you post them here?

Shadow Lodge

There's an app I used to great effect called White Noise for the ipod. You can mix ambient noises. Boat+beach waves+crowded room was perfect

Cheliax

I like this! I will probably use this in the very beginning. Please post more when you get something!


Let's go down below, but watch your back: 5 minutes in the bilges

Mean angry raging storm at sea: 5 minutes of thunder

Thanks! I love coming here because there are so many people contributing awesome homebrewed stuff. Thought I'd share something I can do.

I just finished a few more:

Spoilers:

The beach on Bonewrack Isle! (It just sounds like a beach)

The botfly-infested jungle!

The murky waters of Riptide Cove!

That about does it for The Wormwood Mutiny. This was fun!
If anyone wants me to mix up something different I probably can. Blaarg.


Thanks again for sharing these, this is great.

Just great!

I'm sure it will help me a lot for tomorrow! :D
