Abstract:

This paper is an initial attempt to study the world of sound effects for motion pictures, also known as Foley sounds. Throughout several audio and audio-video tests we have compared both Foley and real sounds originated by an identical action. The main purpose was to evaluate if sound effects are always better than real sounds [1]. Once this aspect is cleared up, the next step will be to understand how Foley effects exaggerate important acoustic features. These are the basis for being able to create a database of expressive sounds, such as audio caricatures, that will be used in different applications of sound design such as advertisement or soundtracks for movies.
