Sound Devices 788T Uncovers the Sounds of the Sea for First Commercial Underwater Surround Sound Film Posted: 23/02/2012
Sound Devices 788T Uncovers the Sounds of the Sea for First Commercial Underwater Surround Sound Film

When German company Ambient Recording developed a special recording system for the first ever commercial documentary to feature underwater surround sound, it cast Sound Devices 788T multi-track digital audio recorder in the starring role. Creating a specific underwater housing (SD-UW) for the recorder, Ambient Recording used it to capture the oceans unique noises.  Recorded offshore from the Caribbean island of Bonaire in November 2011, the documentary is titled The Cannon Crackers of the Pistol Shrimp. As one of the loudest animals on the planet, pistol shrimp live in colonies of up to 16,000 and snap their claws so fast together the water around them vaporizes. They also create bubbles, which implode with a loud cracking sound. The cracking noises, along with vibrant imagery of the shrimp, form the basis of this groundbreaking film.
