Sonic Science Inc. has again raised the bar with the introduction of Sonic Boon
Foley Footsteps (Winter), an all new 48 KHz, 24-bit sound effect library. This
format is the minimum standard for all new Sonic Boon libraries!
Why winter footsteps? We're Canadian, and we know winter! So we developed this
with a focus on real winter situations. That means real snow, real surfaces and
real footwear. Over 1700 winter effects all digitally recorded and edited at a
sample rate of 48 Khz 24-bits. The entire library was recorded on a foley stage
wet room, by bringing the facility temperature down to 5°C (42°F) and loading
the stage with real Canadian winter snow.
All tracks were recorded in Dual Mono with the exception of the "fresh snow"
tracks, which were recorded in single mono with an extra "crunch" track added
on track 2. By varying the relative level between tracks 1 & 2, you can
create infinitely variable depths of snow and perceived proximity to the
The end result is a footstep collection that has incredible frequency response,
a low noise floor, and a unique feel that will quickly make it one of your
essential sound collections.
The library comes in a 2 CD Redbook Audio CD format.
