The Foundation Sound Effects Library is the result of game sound design expert Stephan Schütze’s recording odyssey across Australia, Asia and North America starting in 2005 and continuing to this day. Schütze created this general sound effects library with the age-old maxim in mind that “all things that last must have a strong foundation”. As a leading consultant for FMOD, Schütze naturally optimized the Foundation Libraries with a game developer's needs in mind, but Foundation is also an excellent sound design tool for film and television production and is used extensively by educational institutions in media production curriculums.

The Foundation Library comprises a mind-boggling collection of contemporary recordings including vehicles, industrial machinery, domestic sounds and over one thousand animal sounds. It also includes natural elements such as wind and water, as well as musical instruments and a range of ambiences. And, of course, your expected Sopwith Pup cockpit ambience and underwater engine of a Sydney ferry.

In addition, The Foundation Library includes thousands of audio “elements” or sound bytes from which an almost infinite number of sound events can be crafted. These elements are cataloged into material types such as wood, metal, glass and stone, and subtitled by actions: impacts, scrapes, shatters and breaks. The Foundation Library also includes more abstract elements such as sweeps, drones, pulses and surges.

The Foundation Library also features free sound effects updates digitally delivered every 3 months (at least 250 sound effects).  Foundation’s free sound effects updates are designed to deliver lifetime value and keep the library updated with complimentary and contemporary new sound effects

The Foundation Library also features regular sound effects updates that make it a continually refreshed, lasting sound effects resource.
