Dark Seals is a unique collection of close up, expressive seal vocalisations. It includes everything from aggressive growls, funny gargles, snapping snarls, howling wails and disgusting snorts and slobbers.

Recorded on location in Namibia and the United Kingdom, the library consists of many incredibly up-n-close recordings of individual seals, both adults and pups. The close proximity and large variety in vocal ranges between adults and pups makes this material highly malleable and perfect source for creature sound design.

Files are organised per individual seal and often carry on for minutes with continuous vocalisations, resulting in many variations of a similar type of call. This makes the content highly suitable for game audio design. 

Besides individual seals, there are also various recordings of a huge colony of Cape Fur Seals. These will come in useful when designing sounds of creature hordes.

Includes 28 files (all individual seals) at 192kHz/24Bit and 12 files (seal colony recordings) at 96kHz/24Bit.

Recorded with: Sennheiser MKH 8040, MKH 70, MKH 8040-ST (ORTF) / Zoom F8, Sound Devices USBPre2, Tascam DR680
