Rust 2

Rust Vol. 2 is about what happens when people walk away. Rust is abandonment, amnesia and decay. Rust is the inevitable decline of our overly-mechanized world. Rust is to iron as the tree is to the seed.

Rust 2 Banner

In Rust 2, Soundiron went a little deeper underground and just a little farther out of bounds. So maybe they bent a few little laws while bending a little iron, or maybe it’s all good clean fun. And maybe they took really nice gear to places where nice gear should be taken, to places that people don’t go anymore.

This 2nd volume in the 3-part Rust series is dedicated to prepared metal percussion elements, focusing on darker elements and the most remote locales, often involving quite a bit of urban exploration. Some elements are tonal, while others are percussive or long chaotic cinematic-style effects.

Rust 2 GUI

With over 3000 samples, Rust 2 covers 81 different "instrument" sets, including bunker blast door slams and creaks, massive cold war era tactical ballistic missile loading rack percussion, mechanical prison block cell doors, iron bathtubs, massive 6-story metal tower stairways, giant steel structural I-Beams, long aluminum rods, a 25-acre metal sculpture park and more. A wide variety of drumsticks, mallets and hammers, along with bare hands and boots were used to beat the sound out of all manner of metallic objects, surfaces and structures for this library.


Each preset offers you total control over every aspect of the sound, allowing you to shape note Attack and sample Offset to create gentle, ghostly pad-like sounds from even the harshest impacts. Rust 2 InstThe Release control allows you to tighten the sound into a sharp staccato click or ping in one moment, or a long ringing sustain the next. Tuning is easy with the Stepping and main Tune parameters.

The built-in arpeggiator system allows complex, adaptive arpeggiations and you will find tempo-syncing resonant filter and volume LFOs build into nearly every preset.

Soundiron also included a parametric EQ and convolution reverb with over 50 room and FX impulses to choose from instantly. The instrument includes the mighty Mega Mixer master preset, which lets you choose from any of the percussive elements in the library, load 10 of them dynamically, each with custom key-range, tuning and mapping to create your own ensembles, drum kits and tuned percussion orchestras.
