Pro Sound Effects, provider of next level sound effects libraries and licensing services, released the Foundation Sound Effects Library produced by game sound design expert Stephan Schütze. Currently comprised of 16,006 sound effects, The Foundation library is the result of Schütze’s virtually non-stop sound effects recording odyssey through Australia, Asia and North America starting in 2005 and continuing to this day. At 22 GB, The Foundation Sound Effects Library is delivered on a USB 2.0 external hard drive, includes sound effects search software, and free sound effects updates digitally delivered every 3 months.
Schütze created this general multi-purpose library guided by the age-old maxim that “all things that last must have a strong foundation.” The Foundation Sound Effects Library contains a wealth of contemporary sound effects recordings organized in categories such as animals, ambiences, vehicles, industrial machinery, domestic sounds, weather and other audio elements from which a limitless number of sound events can be crafted. As a leading consultant for interactive audio engine FMOD, Schütze consulted with professional game designers while cultivating Foundation to fit their needs, and has used the library extensively in his lectures and in various audio productions.
