New York, NY (January 26, 2011)--Pro Sound Effects has released the Foundation Sound Effects Library of 16,006 sound effects produced by game sound designer Stephan Schütze.
The Foundation library is the result of Schütze's sound effects recording travels through Australia, Asia and North America starting in 2005 and continuing to this day. At 22GB, 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 three months.
The Foundation Sound Effects Library contains contemporary sound effect recordings organized in categories such as animals, ambiences, vehicles, industrial machinery, domestic sounds, weather and other audio elements from which sound events can be crafted. As a consultant for interactive audio engine FMOD, Schütze consulted with professional game designers while cultivating Foundation to fit their needs, and has used the library in his lectures and in various audio productions.
"I have been passionate about pushing game sound design to the next level by creating sound environments that generate in real-time during game-play," said Schütze. "The Foundation Library has been tailored to provide the raw materials to create these environments. Sonic building blocks are also a core part of my teaching methods as they encourage the next generation to create their own worlds instead of borrowing existing ones.
"My entire journey into sound recoding has been driven by a desire to collect something a little bit different, and being based in Australia, I can guarantee that film, television and commercial productions will find The Foundation Library is a wealth of fresh, high quality sound resources you simply won't find elsewhere. Because I love what I do, I constantly seek to produce the highest quality material possible."
