Soundiron has announced the release of version 2 of its Rust 1 sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
We’re thrilled to release the long-awaited 2.0 update to the original Rust 1 metallic percussion library. This first volume focuses on a variety of small odds and ends like racks, paint cans, soda cans, magnetic balls, galvanized nipples, brass beams, a bowed saw, along with bigger sounds found in mine shafts, steel tunnels, towering stairways and more.
With 1.74 GB and 2724 samples, this classic collection delivers big value. We’ve also added tons of deep control features, an awesome new UI and added bonus content. We’ve refined key mapping and zone placement, velocity layering, humanization, tuning and more.
This update is free to existing Rust 1 owners. And for everyone else, you can grab Rust 1 now for only $49. Hurry, the price goes to $59 after October 5th, 2012.
Soundiron has also launched an official Rust 1 demo contest in celebration of the update, in collaboration with Pulse Controller.
It’s open to all existing and new owners of Rust 1. Just send us a song you’ve created using sounds from Rust 1 as lead instruments. Upload your mp3 here.
On October 5th, we’ll select our three favorite song entries as new official Rust 1 demos. The winners will also receive their own awesome Pulse Surface Controller System.
The Pulse Controller is a revolutionary midi drum trigger and software interface that turns literally any surface into a incredibly responsive and natural sounding midi controller. It makes the perfect compliment to Rust 1 or any of our percussive instruments. Check out the video above to see it in action with several of our instruments. It also offers outstanding arpeggiation that work equally well with melodic and percussive instruments. We highly recommend checking it out.
Rust 1 for Kontakt is available to purchase for $49 USD until October 5th, 2012 (regular $59 USD).
