FX are  know as sound effects | How to use them
By 27 June 2015 454 Views No comments

FX also known as sound effects are most likely one of the most enjoyable music sample types to research when producing music. The array of sounds from the introduction of electronic music up until now has vastly grown. You can also clearly see how the culture and era of music pushed the evolution of sound effects or FX sample databases.

For example, if you watch the Terminator and then play the old game Unreal on your PC, you'll notice that many sound effects are actually the same. As we all know, the film industry had it first, then the gaming and once successfully integrated, then it's time for music and advertisement to follow.


An example of using FX aka sound effects

An example of using FX aka sound effects is clearly connected today with our smartphones. This may sound astonishing, but if you pay close attention, TV advertisement especially haven taken the FX sounds from various phone makers and integrated them into their advertisement. For products best suited to business profiled Apple customers, then you'll hear the new e-mail ping sound. This automatically rises the alertness of the advert consumer where most applicable. I'm sure the same goes for all profiled brand consumers.

This said and done, one can slowly identify how something so small such as a sound effects samples or FX can make a big difference in consumer recognition. Within the music industry, labels are also a brand. This means they are looking to build up recognition and a style using for example FX that is linked also to the subconscious as well as the conscious. Adding small additions to tracks that are kind of a watermark have become the norm. Again a reason why it's illogical that the top DJs apparently are also producing. They therefore would remove control from the label unless ordered to place one of many selected sound effects or instrument samples etc. into the music production.

Branding is strengthened via all senses. Visual, touch, smell and through sound. Effects sampled are therefore a great way to disguise a signature sound into a product. Now don't forget, you as a DJ are a product and a sellable commodity. You provide a service to booking agencies and event managers. To get the jobs you need to survive, you must build up a brand that has the following reasonably big enough to attract guests to the event. Moving with the time and including you own sound effects and FX samples that adapt to the era is the key. Copying the greats and hence diluting their recognition and powering yours is the way forward. We experienced this with copycat competition websites of our own. Though lacking quality, originality and much more, they still take customers away and make money. It should be your aim. We can't blame them, but enjoy helping to pick up the pieces of their failed projects and reassure their customers that hope is still there.
