Recording Basketball Court Sound Effects In Singapore
Only a few blocks away from where we currently live is the Mountbatten community club that has four brand new basketball courts. I passed it a few times since we live in this neighborhood and I realized I don’t have any basketball sounds recorded.
Sound Compilation On SoundCloud
I came around 9 pm and all four courts are full of players and it’s not that they play over the full length of a court. Street Basketball style. One Court two teams.
How Did I Record These Basketball Sound Effects
For the second location, I recorded about 5m to the field and watch one the game from a bench.
For the recordings itself, I used the Zoom F8n & one pair of the Usi Pro microphones by LOM.
This new sound library contains several sound effects like
-a realistic outdoor basketball soundscape with real people at nighttime
-several interjections between the players in Mandarin/Cantonese and English
-lots of shoe squeaks/scrapes and dribbles on elastic EPDM surface
-players practicing dribbles on the other side of the court
-ball bounces on the backboard
-basketball bounces on the hoop and back on the floor
-swish & swooshes through the net
-ball passing with hitting the surface
-slow paced & fast-paced basketball dribbles
-players are laughing and screaming on the field
-(no dunkings, sorry)
