Undertone Sound Library crafted the Wood Doors collection to solve two problems they found while editing doors:
- While larger, dramatic door opening and closing sound effects are easy to come by, the subtler sound fx are not.
- Existing door sound libraries lack personality and life.
In an announcement on the Yahoo Sound Design forum, the team explained.
If you are like us, you are tired of the “canned” sound of the doors from most of the commercial libraries. It is also next-to-impossible to match the subtle door movements in scenes with these canned libraries. I am also not a fan of the “Foley door" sound.
For over 10 years, we’ve been recording door sounds for many of the films we work on… we’ve carefully gone through them and pulled many of the wood door opens and closes at varying intensities and speeds. There are handle movements, latches etc, but this is primarily an open and close library.
The sound effects library features a variety of wood doors, including:
Doors By Style and Location
- Front doors.
- Closet doors.
- Bedroom doors.
- Bathroom doors.
- Apartment doors.
- Basement doors.
Doors By Type
- French doors.
- Sliding bi-fold doors.
- Knotty pine cabin doors.
Doors By Construction
- Hollow core doors.
- Solid core doors.
