BPB’s sound design label 99Sounds has released Garage Foley, a free collection of organic percussion sounds and foley sound effects crafted by Tyler Bajsa.
Garage Foley contains 100 audio samples in total, provided as 32-bit WAV files along with a simple NKI instrument patch for NI Kontakt 5. The samples were recorded and edited by sound designer Tyler Bajsa who used his Zoom H1 ($69 at B&H) audio recorder to capture the sounds of different objects being hit. The sounds were captured in a garage space, adding some natural reverb to the recordings. Tyler applied only the necessary processing and edits to the recordings, in order to preserve their natural tone. The result is a collection of highly versatile and organic sounding percussion hits and foley sound effects for use in film, music production, video game development, and sound design.
This is the type of sound library that provides highly flexible samples for drum layering, rhythm programming, beat making, as well as use as background sound effects, or the source material for further sound design. The provided NKI patch for NI Kontakt (full version of Kontakt is required to get past the 15-minute time limit in Kontakt Player) provides an instantly playable set of percussion sounds that can be used in your projects right away. It also features a low-pass filter for tonal shaping and a simple ADSR envelope for the volume.
