Square Enix posted a behind the scenes look at Final Fantasy XIII’s foley sound studio. Staff tasked with this job have to recreate sound effects with ordinary items.
As an example, clanking PSI-COM footsteps are made by a foley artist shaking metal gauntlets. Multiple rattling sound effects were recorded and synchronized to make each soldier sound like an individual.
Those are photos of Final Fantasy XIII’s foley sound studio. Square Enix wants you to guess what the equipment is used for.
