The sound effects, also called noises, are used in parallel to the images or as a counterpoint and they become elements of expressive importance, creating atmospheres and emotions, and giving fluidity to the narration.
In general, sound effects are considered all those sounds that stand out from the ambient sound to receive a special treatment: shots, disturbing steps, echoes and reverberations, etc. To recreate them, in general, you have to design them especially in recording studios since the authentic ones do not always look good in the cinema.
What are sound effects?
You have come to the right place to find an answer to this question. At Freeaudiolibrary, we record, design and publish thousands of different isolated sounds, special sound effects, Foley sounds and background environments. Together, these different types of sound effects create the Free Sound Effects Library of Freeaudiolibrary.
Isolated sounds include the sounds of everyday items such as doorbells, car horns, and telephone rings. These are the real and specific sounds you hear, such as barking dogs, gunshots, slamming doors and squeaking cars during a chase.
Special effects include sounds that are designed to be used for objects and places that exist only in our imagination. You could use special effects in cartoons, fantasy and science fiction productions. They would improve production by creating a special sound for a space shuttle, the magic of a genius bronze lamp, or for giant cartoon animals that eat purple people.
The foley sounds are synchronized with the images in a movie or television program. This synchronization process is also called audio sound replacement. Foley's magic places footsteps on a film soundtrack, recreates the rattle of a coffee cup that is placed on a table, provides the realistic whisper of clothes and the ever-popular hit on the face. These and many other sounds must be doubled during post-production on the soundtrack of the film for the audience to listen to. They are named after Jack Foley, a pioneer in the field of sound replacement.
Ambient background tracks provide the basic environment for a production. They provide all the subtle atmosphere that makes the viewer or listener of the radio really feel like it is in a courtroom, a church, a train station, a thunderstorm or a jungle.
