Sound Iron releases Motor Rhythms drum kit for Kontakt

Developer: Sound Iron

Sound Iron has releases Motor Rhythms, a sampled drum kit crafted from raw automobile parts by musical artist and mechanic Jordan Hill.

He carefully conceived, selected, assembled and welded together parts from a huge collection of auto makes and models. You can see Jordan and his kit in action live here. 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 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.
