Sound Effect License
Sound effects can be artificially created, enhanced sounds, naturally recorded sounds or created by combining different sound effects. Sound Effects are used to enhance the viewing experience by making a creative point without the need to dialogue.
Here are a few of the different types of sound effects uses:
Hard Sound Effects - These are common sounds that appear on screen, such as glass breaking, a door slamming, a gun firing, etc. These types of sound effects are the focus of the scene.
Background Sound Effects - These are sounds that you may note pay much attention to, but would notice if they were missing. For example, with two people talking on a city street you naturally here the traffic in the background. Now imagine that scene if all you heard was the dialogue. This is where background sound effects come in. They fill in the background with ambient sounds. The SoundElements Sound Effects DVD has lots of ambient sounds and you can create your own ambient sound effects, by combining various sound effects and reducing the volume level so the combine sound effects don't over power the dialogue.
Foley Sound Effects - These are sounds effects that are synchronize to the action on screen. For example a person walking.
Artificially Created Sound Effects - These are sounds that do not normally occur in nature. For example, a blast from a ray gun or a comet passing by. These type of sound effects are generally created in the computer using a base sound effect and modifying the way is sounds. On the SoundElements Sound Effects DVD, we have included several categories of Artificial Sound Effects.
