Overview

The ultimate tool for custom foley performance and design, making it easy to match realistic sound effects to your visuals. Add Hollywood-level immersive audio to your film, TV & game productions with a fraction of the time & budget previously required. Created in collaboration with Cinema Sound, the world’s most comprehensive resource of audio-for-film education.

Recording your own foley takes gear, time, and practice, while buying existing foley libraries often means time wasted chopping up and editing long audio files. CSFL makes the process much easier by giving you tons of carefully-edited and categorized samples ready to perform via your MIDI controller.

"Impact Soundworks creates easy-to-use, great-sounding virtual instruments right out of the box. Highland Harps, Emotional Mallets, and Shreddage 3 are in my daily toolkit."

"A big thanks to the team at Impact Soundworks for putting inspiration at my fingertips! Your sample libraries are in heavy use in my Orchestral, Rock and Pop templates, and always visible in my top-tier Cue-specific Kontakt. Layering your Shreddage libraries on top of my live guitar tracks creates so much depth, and I get so much out of so many of your other libraries - too many to name. A+ programming and sonic goodness gang!"

"I've been using ISW since 2015, and their instruments have shown up in Into the Breach and Subnautica Below Zero, and in nearly all of my solo albums. Shreddage helped me fill in the gaps around my own guitar performances. Super Audio Cart provided some great raw synth sounds for parts of Below Zero. Impact Soundworks is often the first place I go to when I'm shopping for a new project. Everything they make works and sounds great."


About the Library

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!



The Recordings

Download the complete Content Layout PDF here to see all included categories

CSFL was primarily recorded with the Røde NTG-8 shotgun mic, which, thanks to its beautiful frequency response and powerful off-axis rejection, gives the recordings a very “on set” feeling.

You’ll find this library blends far more readily with dialog recorded on lavaliers and shotgun mics and brings a far more cohesive frequency response to production audio in the mix. Exterior recordings were recorded with the Røde NTG-3 and, similarly, its world-famous sound allows foley samples to blend wonderfully with on-set dialog.

All samples were captured at 192/96 kHz/24 bits and audio was processed at that sample rate. It was only downsampled to 96kHz for final export. We implemented state-of-the-art noise and artifact removal to further clean up the recordings and added a proprietary neuro-passive aural EQ curve on all samples to enhance their use in complex mixing.

Using these pristine high bit and sample rates means virtually no digital noise buildup or harsh artifacts, even with lots of processing and pitch shifting!



Console Modular FX Rack & 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.

Testimonial – Jimmy ‘Big Giant Circles’ Hinson (Black Ops 4, Borderlands 2, Threes)

“Between Shreddage, Super Audio Cart, Juggernaut, and Mega Brass I don’t remember the last time I haven’t used an Impact Soundworks instrument in a track. The attention to detail is astonishing and it’s all so easy to use out of the box, which is a big deal.”
