Soundiron has announced the release of Motor Rhythms, a unique drum kit, crafted from raw automobile parts by musical artist and mechanic Jordan Hill.

Soundiron Motor Rhythms

He carefully selected, assembled and welded together parts from all manner of auto makes and models. We came to his workshop to record each piece in precise detail, with both close and far microphone positions. This Kontakt library features deep round-robin variation & velocity layering, modular kit mapping, intelligent step-sequencing arpeggiator, intuitive controls, endless FX routing possibilities and a huge variety of dynamic sounds to choose from.

Our flexible user interface by Darin Leach offers a broad range of essential controls with independent layer settings or global linking. You can shape attack, release, start offset, pitch, volume and key placement for each kit piece. You can freely map each articulation or select presets for most major drum library midi mapping standards.

We’ve also created an expansive collection of sound-designed atmospheres, grooves, pads and synth tones created from the raw acoustic source recordings to provide perfect stylized sonic accompaniment. We also provide you with a full rack of Kontakt’s on-board multi-effects and a wide selection of our most popular convolution reverb impulses to spatialize the sound in a variety of real and sound-designed spaces.

This 6.57 GB library includes 6,894 samples and 14 nki presets with a custom user interface for the full version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OSX 10.8 or later / Windows 7 or later required). All of the samples are unlocked 24bit/48kHz wavs that you can use in any standard wav-compatible program or plugin you like.
