Sound Effects: A Definition
Isolated sound effects include the sounds of everyday items like jackhammers, vacuum cleaners and car crashes. Special fx include various sounds that are designed to be used for places and objects that may only exist in the imagination. Foley sound effects are named after Jack Foley. The effects simulate everyday and extreme sounds – and are used for synchronization and the replacement of audio in motion pictures. Background ambience tracks provide a sense of the environment for a production. They make the audience feel that the action is really taking place “on location” in that particular grocery store, city park, forest or during that fierce thunderstorm.
