About Cinema Sound Foley Library by Impact Soundworks

How do you deliver realistic, effective, Hollywood-level foley with a limited budget and limited time? With more independent movies, games, and video productions being produced than ever, there’s more demand and higher standards for high-quality audio. How do you meet these expectations as an individual or small team?

You could perform and record everything yourself, but this painstaking process takes equipment, time, and practice. You could purchase a generic foley library, but you’ll need to spend a lot of time chopping up and re-aligning sprawling audio files… then doing it again if the video changes. Sometimes, this takes more time than just recording yourself. Back to square one.


A Foley Library That Actually Saves Time

The Cinema Sound Foley Library offers the best of both worlds. With our custom Kontakt instrument, you can quickly audition thousands of sounds in seconds, and implement them on the fly by ‘performing’ them on a MIDI keyboard.

With easy layering, keyswitching, per-sample editing, and FX – all within a single UI – editing these performances couldn’t be any easier! This has extensive advantages over other methods of foley creation and design:

1. Massive time savings in implementing and auditioning foley sounds, because they’re already collated, edited, organized, mastered, and processed for maximum punch in the mix.

2. User-friendly, versatile options for performance, with easy switching and crossfading between layers all within a single MIDI channel.

3. A huge selection of categorized sounds includes the bulk of what every production encounters: footsteps, clothing, and skin.

4. Footsteps with multiple tempi and intensities, so you can perfectly match the action on screen, as well as program each heel-toe-slide-pickup separately.

5. Easy layering of sounds to create super juicy and punchy effects, or super-ethereal ambiences, within seconds.

6. Full ADSR envelope controls to create “Distance to Camera” mixing, and all controls are automatable from your DAW.

With CSFL, you can add Hollywood-level, immersive foley to any production with a fraction of the time and budget previously required. We hope you’re able to take advantage of this in a huge way, and enhance your productions to the maximum!



Console: Modular FX Rack and Mixer

The sounds themselves are only one part of our foley library. You’ll also gain a powerful mixer and modular effects rack so you can customize these foley sounds with a variety of subtle to dramatic effects. With Console, you can make subtle adjustments to tone and space, or go hyper-realistic with sounds that really punch through the mix.

You’ll find multiple EQs (digital and analog-style), compressors, spatial FX, modulation FX, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs, and a selection of over 30 custom cabinet IRs! Using Console, you can easily save and load FX chains or presets between projects or even different Console-enabled ISW instruments.

    BEWARE! This “user-friendly” SFX Library comes only in packed nkx-files and has no WAV-file alternative. This meaning, that even for short oneshots you have to load up a kontakt instrument, wait for a moment, load up the bank, search for your sound and bounce it to a new track instead of simply drag and dropping the file into your DAW. A support inquiry at Impact Soundworks has not been answered to this date.
    Besides this the library has some other flaws. The slider which mixes the A and B library for example does not work properly. Even if dragged all to the left, does not mute the B library, it still comes through. To have a clean sound from the A Library, you have to unload all the libraries in B. Not userfriendly at all.
    Then some of the sounds have a weird hum to them. The organisation of the files is somewhat erratic, because you can find Footsteps outside of the Footstep libraries, Clothes outside from the Clothes Category etc.
    The sounds themselves sound good most of the time, but – at least for me as an experienced sound designer – a library that is only accessible through a kontakt instrument is useless half of the time. An instrument is a nice gimmick, but any serious sound designer uses his/her SFX manager to find a wav file and drags it into the DAW for like 80% of the time. Well, not with this library.
