Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
Recording the sounds of Seoul can be a truly immersive and exciting experience. And one of the most iconic locations in the city is the Cheonggyecheon stream. Running through the heart of Seoul, this stream is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, and has been featured in countless Korean dramas such as Vincenzo and Lovestruck in the City.
But it wasn’t always this way. The Cheonggyecheon stream was once buried and hidden away by an elevated superhighway. But thanks to an ambitious and successful redevelopment project, it is now a vibrant and thriving part of the city.
During our stay in Seoul, we had the opportunity to explore and record the sounds along the Cheonggyecheon stream. We used the Rode NT-SF1 and Zoom F6 to capture VR sound recordings, which can be used in a variety of ways. By downloading the free ‘SoundField by RØDE’ plugin, you can use the original VR files to create your own unique stereo mix or use it for atmos mixing in surround or Dolby, ranging from 5.1 to 7.1.4.
We also created a stereo mix from the Rode NT-SF1 and included high-quality binaural recordings recorded with the DPA 4560 for an even more immersive experience. This collection contains everything you need to build or add to an exciting soundscape set in Seoul, Korea. And as many Korean sound engineers use our sounds, we are confident that we will hear the sounds in future K-dramas.
But the possibilities don’t stop there. These sound effects can be used for any project, whether it’s for films, audio dramas, video games, or podcasts. We hope that these Seoul sound effects and our other Korean sound libraries will help you to achieve your goal and bring your next project to life.
