Foley Plus is a massive collection of sounds taken from sound designer David Fienup’s personal sound library and Pro Tools sessions. The sounds were precisely edited, mastered, and arranged. Finally, each file was infused with rich metadata descriptions and tags, so they can be easily found using any kind of search engine.
The sounds: Foley sounds, of course, are sounds performed in sync to picture, as many of these sounds originally were.
This collection covers a wide array of sounds from shaking a spray paint can to the rattling of a zipper. In between, there are tons of clothing sounds like leather jackets, purses, armor, and fireman gear. There are also a bunch of new footsteps like creaky stairs, inside a metal air duct, soft creaking carpet, wet concrete, and very creaky wood. There are scraping sounds, screeching sounds, objects being dragged, catching fruit, cigarette embers, tons of paper sounds, animal nails running, chairs, chains, bottle and can sounds, plastics, a variety of lighters, people drinking beer, wine and liquor, nail clippers, mouth pops, mouth sucking in olives, telephone sounds, toilets plunging, … gasp… yeah, there’s a ton in here… Hell, there’s even umbrella movement and rattling sounds to add in to a rain scene!
Sound from the Field: Many practical sounds cannot be recorded in the average home studio or Foley studio. Many of the sounds in this library are just those – sounds that had to be recorded in the field. Some of these sounds include car seatbelts, glove box, windows, keys in ignition, sunroof, doors, and simply getting in and out of a car. Others include various doors such as garage and household doors, hospital curtains, hitting a tennis ball, frying pan sizzles, distant vacuum, etc.
All of these sounds were recorded for a few reasons.
1. While I have many similar sounds in some stock and general libraries, I find many of the recordings old and outdated. So I make great new recordings.
2. When a library contains a sound I need, there are often only 1 or 2 iterations. But, most of my projects need more than one candy wrapper crinkling sound, or more than one metal squeaking sound. So, I record a whole bunch of each thing I need so that I have plenty of variety to get me through several projects.
3. There are gaping holes in large, general libraries. This collection will fill in a lot of those holes. That’s why they were recorded, and that’s why I’m sharing them with the world. Will it fill in all the holes? No. There are an infinite number of ways and reasons any one single object could or would create sound. But the key to building a good sound library is covering as much as possible.
4. I just love recording sound. Period.
Check out the track list for more details. This collection provides some new and interesting sounds, as well as a ton of variations so your soundtrack never gets old! Collections come in easily downloadable zip files.
This library was updated in February 2022 to conform to UCS standards, with CatID and UCS filenames.
UCS Update: New purchases of Foley Plus come fully equipped with UCS metadata and filenames. Previously purchased copies can also be updated.
Soundminer Users: To update your old version to the new UCS metadata, create a new database, scan in your copy of the collection, change the "Manufacturer" metadata column to say 'Soundopolis' (without the quotes, and capitalize the first 'S'), select the "Database" dropdown menu, and select "Lookup Metadata from Cloud". Once the metadata is done updating, you can select all of the files, right click on them, and select "Embed Selected". NOTE: THIS WILL CHANGE THE FILE NAMES!!! If this action will impact older projects that use these sounds, it is your responsibility to save a copy with the original filenames somewhere so as not to impact those projects.
Other Update Options: Below are two zip files. One is a text file with all of the metadata generated by Soundminer. The second is that same information in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. These should help if you use a program other than Soundminer. For directions on how to update your particular program, please consult with the manufacturer's website. Soundopolis only uses Soundminer, and is not familiar with the metadata updating procedures of all of the other programs available.
