Create great sounding foley footsteps for any scene with a collection of 6 shoe types and 14 surfaces. Round robin and front step vs heel variation options creates a flexible approach to any scene to match production or international M&E. Assign different cloths to each shoe type for greater realism and blending.
Different Mic Positions
4 Mic Positions. Different mics and distance to fit the scene production better and tonal options.
Change the cloth type for every shoe. From Jeans to Nylon and even Chain Leather. Even works for just a “cloth pass” if shoes are muted.
All In One Engine
6 Different Shoes on 14 Surface Combination will work on any scene.
The Difference is in the Variety
It took forever, but every step of every round robin and mic position is edited to be only “heel” or “front” of the step, in addition to the full step and scuffs. For walk, medium pace and run. This enables a wide range of variety only matched by a real foley artist. Sometimes a character is far away walking and a full step (front+heel) will not sound realistic, but only the heel will get closer to a desired sound that matches the envirnment of an actor or can work for a more realistic international M&E. Or mix and match between Full Step and front for a more natural sound.
We want a simple solution for Sound Designers in a bind, Video Editors on low budgets or that “Final Cut #5” from one producer going behind the directors back that now needs new steps by tomorrow. With so many new outlets for media, new challenges arise and sometimes a real foley artist (even though prefered) might not be feasible. Foleysoft’s Footsteps wants to be there to help when that happens and without tech or licensing getting in the way.
No need for extra fees or subscriptions. Any medium, any time. No hassles. Buy once and use it anytime, forever.
One License to Rule Them All
One license works for a studio or individual. On how many computers are needed in the studio.
Free Kontakt Player
Will work with the free Kontakt player from Native instrument. Any DAW is compatible.

Our Approach to Footsteps
We realize that a foley artist can see a scene one time, grab a few objects and perform in real time making it fast and seemless. Not only sounding great but also doing it fast and adding that Hollywood magic.
With many years of experience doing “finger foley” for many FOX, Disney and Warner TV shows and movies at times when the foley artists where busy, or using their own custom samples, we learned that for footsteps there are other inherit things that happen besides a normal footstep sample, like moving a little away or closer to the microphone or adding a small “tok” between a step instead of a full slow step and scuff all the time. We wanted to capture some of these smaller details and be able to perform it via finger foley. For this product we recorded all new samples using different mic tecniques and positions. This way offer a more flexible option for the sound performance. Recording with the greatest signal chains like Neumans mics and Grace preamps for a clear clean sound but have also a stereo x/y and room mics to help add more depth to the samples. These have been common in orchestral music sample libraries. There is even a “very far away mic” for some extra wild sound design and options. We’ve been around for a while working in Burbank CA so needless to say that if anyone needs a professional full foley pass and wants a great performance, and the budget allows it, then by all means please contact many of the foley artists available around Los Angeles and other cities.
