Foundation Sound Effects Library
16,006 Sounds & Quarterly Updates (22.4 GB)The Foundation Library is the work of passionate sound designer and well-known, games industry veteran, Stephan Schutze. Recorded in 5 continents over the course of 3 years, this high-quality library includes a wealth of essential sound recordings including cars, planes, trains, natural elements, such as wind and water, firearms, and footsteps, and over one thousand animal sounds. In addition, the Foundation Library includes thousands of audio “elements” from which an almost infinite number of unique sound events can be crafted. Cataloged into material types such as wood, metal, glass and stone, and subtitled by actions: impacts, scrapes, shatters and breaks, these materials may be shaped into highly complex, bespoke audio elements. Foundation also includes abstract elements such as sweeps, drones, pulses, and surges. The flexibility and possibilities offered by this enormous catalog make the Foundation Library an extremely powerful sound design tool. The Foundation Library is regularly used in academic environments as a basic sound effects resource. The Foundation Library is also used by video game sound designers and designed specifically for deployment in FMOD. View video demo.
