Soundiron has announced the release of Cathedral of Junk 2.0, an upgrade to the Kontakt instrument that pays homage to one of the most unique places in America, the Cathedral Of Junk in Austin, TX.
It is a very real structure, built entirely from mountains of scrap metal, car parts, machines, appliances, bottles, windows, doors, instruments, building materials and literally anything you might imagine when you think of the word “junk”.
It is the creation of one Vince Hannemann, a man with an extraordinary artistic vision. He collected, assembled, welded and stacked it all up into a 3-story tall cathedral in his own backyard that you can climb and explore.
Vince let us record our way through the Cathedral with a with a couple of mallets and drumsticks in 2011. On our journey, we recorded dozens of cool-sounding objects and surfaces. The result is an astoundingly musical and fun library, perfect for all manner of genres, from EDM and industrial music to classic cinematic sound design.
The upgrade contains a fully-customizable user interface, modular FX rack and 20 custom FX presets designed to inspire or used as a starting point to help you forge a sound all your own.
