FULTON, MD — Impact Soundworks (https://impactsoundworks.com) has released the Cinema Sound Foley Library, a new library that helps audio pros match realistic sounds to their visuals. The release was created in collaboration with Cinema Sound, a comprehensive resource of audio-for-film education. The Cinema Sound Foley Library makes the sound editing and Foley process much easier by providing a ton of carefully-edited and categorized samples that are ready to be triggered via a MIDI controller.
The library contains over 54,000 Foley samples, recorded in 24-bit at 96KHz. There are a huge variety of male and female footsteps, along with clothing and skin touches. Also included are body percussions and grunts; impacts and weapons; crunches, swishes and rustles. Most recordings were captured with a Røde NTG-8 shotgun mic, which is known for its frequency response and powerful off-axis rejection, giving the recordings a very "on-set" feeling.
The sounds themselves are only one part of the Foley library. Users also get a powerful mixer and modular effects rack so they can customize these Foley sounds with a variety of subtle to dramatic effects. With Console, users can make subtle adjustments to tone and space, or go hyper-realistic with sounds that punch through a mix. There are multiple EQs (digital and analog-style), compressors, spatial FX, modulation FX, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs, and a selection of over 30 custom cabinets include. By using Console, pros can easily save and load FX chains or presets between projects.
The Cinema Sound Foley Library is delivered using the Pulse Downloader for a smooth experience. The download is individually watermarked, tying it to the purchase. Pricing is $179, and users must have Native Instruments’ Kontakt.
