Lace your shoes tightly and brace yourself for the newest BOOM Library product: VIRTUAL FOLEY ARTIST – FOOTSTEPS, the cleanest and most flexible footsteps collection. Now available for pre-release!
As it’s a sound artist’s job to create surroundings of optimum precision and reality, the exact intention is to reflect an audioscape that evokes true and explicit connotations without overstating. Our delicate hearing perception defines how precisely we sketch an image of the real world – or just the opposite.
With VIRTUAL FOLEY ARTIST – FOOTSTEPS, we took into consideration all of these aspects to equip you with the best possible SFX for your given footage. FOOTSTEPS is practically a whole rack of shoes compiled into one single outstanding playable KONTAKT 5 instrument*: it comprises boots, dress shoes, high heels, leather shoes and sneakers. We got accurate recordings of paces on all sorts of different grounds: wood, concrete, gravel, metal, sand and parquet. In addition, we added a lot of generic sound layers that can be easily added to the mix. Those layers include sounds of cloth, leather, metal, grass, water and snow. Oh, and of course it also covers the fact that our physical equipment supposes an amount of two feet, so the sounds come to you as distinguished by side and gesture: right or left foot taking steps, slides, stairs; tip, heel, full loading or relieving moves. All in all we recorded more than 22.000 different samples.
PLEASE NOTE: VIRTUAL FOLEY ARTIST – FOOTSTEPS‘ key feature is a playable KONTAKT 5 instrument* that enables you to easily synch the Foley steps to your project. Just “play” the steps on your keyboard in synch to the picture and that’s it – absolutely fast and efficient. Scroll down and watch a tutorial to see how easy it is. For those who don’t have a full version of KONTAKT 5 by Native Instruments, we included a set of WAV files of all kinds of shoe-surface combinations.
