We’ve just added another 1360 common Foley sounds to the Audio Design Desk library in Foley Vol 3. The entire collection was recorded by our friends at VadiSound. It features toys, balloons, luggage, books, coins, cards, board games, food preparation, kitchen sounds and more.
A small sampling of these common Foley sounds
The role that Foley plays in a scene is adding tangible sounds to actions and objects seen on screen. So the more sounds you can add to the soundscape, the more representative it becomes of a real experience. If you want to make your projects more immersive, using common Foley sounds will probably be part of the process.
Simply hearing a page being turned, for instance, is a visceral trigger for most of us. We’ve all turned enough pages in our lives to relate to this action, but syncing sound and image makes it believable. So adding the sounds of paper rustling, a page turning, perhaps some breathing and a little movement will bring ‘real’ life to the moment. For the viewer, this is the difference between interesting and immersive.
