Today we have some super exciting news to share… we’re launching Sound Effects! Our BETA version is now available, so if you want to be one of the first to explore our catalog, now is the time. Keep reading to hear what our SFX and Sound Design catalog contains, how you can access it and more!
What Are Sound Effects & How Are They Used?
Sound effects are short sound clips that can be inserted into media to enhance or create an effect. Examples include things like animal sounds, screams, nature sounds, crashes and so on. These are layered over audio to enhance or imply certain on-screen actions, or to add to whatever atmosphere or world you are trying to create. SFX help to boost realism and create a more immersive experience for the audience.
There are also Foley sounds, which are a type of sound effect. Foley is the art of recreating SFX based on what is happening on screen. This includes mundane sounds such as walking, cutlery clanging together, water running, breathing and so on, in order to reinforce what is happening on-screen.
Our Sound Effects
We’re so excited to finally be launching Sound Effects, and with a premium collection that mirrors the quality of our music, we think you’re going to love what we have to offer. Our SFX for our BETA launch are organized into the following categories:
- Handheld devices
- Hits & tones
- Sports & recreation
Our new library includes multiple sea lion sounds (because just one isn’t enough), every door slam, knock or creak you could imagine, thunder, vehicles, rollercoasters and kitchenware, as well as tons of Foley sounds and Sound Design… and that’s barely skimming the surface!
If you want to be among the first to try out Audiosocket’s SFX and Sound Design, it couldn’t be simpler. All you need to do is sign up to get early access to sound effects for free for 60-days! We’ll be launching the full version soon, but for now there are thousands of premium sounds for you to enjoy. We can’t wait to see how you use them in your work, so get to sharing your creations with us on Instagram. We will repost some of our favorites!
