Wide Variety of Computer Keyboards. From Modern Apple thin Button Keyboards to Springy Dell Keyboards. 

Laptop Keyboards and Toy Keyboards

Smartphones, Tablets and Mice 

Each Keyboard, Mouse & Tablet has been multisampled to include Round Robins. These help create an element of realism because single samples are randomly repeated and the same one is not heard one after the other which helps minimize the “Machine Gun” effect.  Each Keyboard was sampled using the best “common” sounding keys while the space bar is availble as a separate set of samples.

Using pre made keyboard samples available from sound libraries means having to either edit each little key press from the action of the scene or having to deal with the sonic imprint of it. With Foleysoft’s Typing SFX the idea is to “play” whats going on in the screen and follow the actors actions. Individual samples which have been cleaned and premixed will have a much more neutral sound that will be more flexible during the mixing process.

Typing SFX Maker provides an alternative to editing keyboard sound effects one by one to match the action on screen when an actor is in front of a desktop computer, laptop computer or devices. 10 Keyboard models where sampled with 3 dynamic ranges (soft, medium, hard) and 10 round robins each velocity. Different randomized keys from the left and right of the keyboard where sampled to provide a more nuanced approach as well as sampling the space bar for added realism. This technique was also used for sampling 3 laptops.

In addition to the keyboards, there are 7 mouse models and 3 devices that where sampled with round robin and right/left hand. A bonus of a toy keyboard and toy ipad are included. Each round robins release sound (sound of letting go fo the key) has been separated to provide further realism on each individual keybaord stroke.

Keyboard SFX Maker will help not only to provide a more present and defined typing sound effect but also help on International M&E where production sounds are removed and SFX need to be redone. With 2 mic positions, Keyboard SFX maker will provide sound flexibility for mixing with or without production depending on your needs.

There are two GUI versions of the same instrument. All in One GUI includes all keyboards, laptops, devices and Mouse samples in one keyboard for easy and fast access to choosing keyboard type. And Dropdown version GUI lets you choose the keyboard on the dropdown menu to select the desired keyboard/mouse/device and play it in the same keyboard notes which is ideal for small midi keyboard.
