Rust 3

Rust Vol. 3 is a true paradigm shift in metallic tuned and untuned kit percussion. Rust 3 InstThis long-awaited third installment in the legendary Rust series explores a brand new way of bending this classic genre of found-sound percussion into compelling musical directions. The first Rust library focused on tight nuanced hand, mallet and stick percussion in a mostly dry environment, from paint cans to dumpsters.

Rust II leaped into big cinematic and unique environmental sounds, with army bunker blast shields, prison door slams, huge bronze sculptures. The goal of the 3rd volume, was to conquer powerful bass and rich musical tone, recording a massive variety of surfaces, objects, oddities, apparatuses and custom contraptions very up-close to capture even the most subtle of resonances and overtones.

Soundiron aimed for a collection that would offer uniquely alternative drum kit concepts, richly complex tuned percussion, dramatic effects and stingers and a huge wealth of sustaining lead, pad and ambient instruments.

They reached for crystalline highs and mind-melting lows, combined in a library that could stand on it’s own, capable of producing limitless musical potential all by itself.
