There is probably a way to blend the two sounds together like morph a goo sound into a crawling sound so it sounds like crawling underwater in goo.

It would help if you said what you have tried already? –  user49 Jun 17 '10 at 6:17

Hey

Wet one of those extra thick/absorbent cleaning cloths or a towel. Squish away. Itmight sound a bit wet though...

Make a mush with toilet paper and water. You can easily vary the wetness.


For underwater sounds, cover a make with a condom and record yourself squeezing water from a sports bottle/water pistol/super soaker...or like Dom Lawrence mentioned, playing with a sponge also gives great results...

A bit vague on what exactly you want - is it big/small/human/animal etc etc but try cold pasta and sauce, squeezed and mushed up by hand for the goo. SLowing it down, some short delay/rvb all help to thicken the sound. As for underwater, try mic in a condom and squeeze out spunges underwater and then edit in the results to the picture movements. Then blend with some eq/reverb/spatial plugs to help the underwater feel.

Have you tried vocoding one sound with the other??

Those are great ideas, I especially love the pasta sauce. No experimenting has been done except this question.

maybe you should read Randy Thoms article on the yahoo sound design group about experimenting before asking others advice? Seems sad when people don't even bother to experiment first & learn to develop their own instincts –  user49 Jun 18 '10 at 3:39
    
I agree with Tim. There's nothing like going out and trying it before asking advice. Then you have something to relate the advice to. –  Utopia Jun 21 '10 at 0:18
    
Fair point Tim, asking about how to create creature/monster voices is a good example of this. I kinda feel guilty for making suggestions now...! –  Dom Lawrence Jun 21 '10 at 10:03
    
Oh yes I completely agree with you but consider the sounds of everyone typing, thinking, and experimenting with those. My question was poorly worded and was halfway asking about software reccomendations. –  Chris Jun 21 '10 at 16:57
