Sound Ideas Foley Sound Effects collection provides an extensive collection of clothing and cloth movement sounds, footsteps using a variety of footware and surfaces, object handling, levers & switches and many more movement effects. Jack Foley pioneered the sound replacement art that bears his name. Foley sound effects are designed to simulate everyday sounds like picking up a glass to take a drink, as well as extreme sounds like bursting through a locked door, for synchronization and audio sound replacement in motion pictures and television productions. Without the magic of Foley, you would never hear someone's footsteps in a film because these, and many other sounds, must be dubbed in during the post production process on the film's soundtrack in order to be heard by the audience.
