- 122 Foley Samples
The term “Foley” is derived from a sound-effects artist for filmmaking named Jack Foley. He has developed many ground-breaking techniques and was part of the Universal Studios crew that turned the “silent” Show Boat into a musical. While projecting the film on a screen the sound artists had to record a single audio track capturing sounds, that can be anything from closing doors to footsteps. The difficulty was the perfect timing, because there were no editing softwares available back then. Some of the techniques, which had been developed during this time are still being used today.
Where as foley sounds were mainly used in film making they’re also being used more and more in music productions these days. One possible application can be to include foley sound effects in the background of a break to add ambient and atmospheric textures. This will make a track sound less empty and more natural. Another way is to layer them with drums for adding more texture and character or even replacing drums with foley sounds in the arrangement or using them for fills or pre-drop phrases.
