Enhance actions and characters with lifelike Foley sound effects.

The Odyssey Collection: Foley Effects

Developed in exclusive collaboration with Academy Award®-winners Mark Mangini & Richard L. Anderson, The Odyssey Collection: Foley Effects provides clean, natural recordings of everyday actions for seamless integration into your projects.

With a huge variety of props, surfaces, and variations of each sound, this go-to Foley sound library has you covered. Craft your scenes with common Foley recordings like footsteps, cloth rustle, and body grabs – as well as practical and peculiar objects like chair slides, glasses, coins, plastic, aerosol spray, butterfly wing flaps, and much more.

What is Foley? Foley is technically the act of recording sound effects performed in-sync to picture, using various props and surfaces, often on a Foley stage. In this case, these Foley-like sounds were recorded by Mangini and Anderson to fill out temp mixes of feature film projects before the traditional Foley process – with a focus on discrete actions within natural sonic environments.

“Much of what constitutes this library are wild sounds that Richard and I recorded because we didn’t have Foley yet. We would usually perform our ‘pre-Foley’ sound effects in acoustic spaces like rooms, halls, or wherever would make them sound most natural and useful in perpetuity across different projects.” – Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road)

This library is included in The Odyssey Collection: Complete. This library is not included in Odyssey Starter, Essentials, or Expanded. Explore The Odyssey Collection here.

Every sound is very rich sounding, and at the same time detailed. Every time I’ve used it, I’m always able to find what I need very quickly with its well-organized metadata.
