Sound Dust Loop Pool: BOOM & BUST v2 for the full version of Kontakt is a huge pool of organic and analogue building blocks squeezed into a cunning BPM synced morphing device.

Use your modwheel and keyboard to intuitively build an infinity of urgent, thrilling and unique underscore (and overscore) from scratch. Or, simply put, if you love that dark, filthy, groovy sound of modern cinematica - BOOM & BUST is your new secret weapon!

Sound Dust Boom & Bust v2 is the first release in Sound Dust's new Loop Pool series of instruments which are loop-based and also come with a big pool of loops. More titles in the series arriving soon!

New in Version 2.0:

  • Time Funnel for playback speed control of morph groups
  • Per note sample start offset
  • New custom IRs
  • Transient Master added to XY effects
  • Loop naming

Sound Dust Loop Pool Boom & Bust is hand crafted from deep and broken organically generated sound sources.

Space Echo self oscilation, distorted 808, bust up drum kits and bent cymbals, thumb piano, Voyager, Theremin, Dfam, binaurally recorded found sounds, electrostatic crackle, lovely wooden egg shakers, infinite guitar, dust piano, snow, fireworks, ghostly footsteps, softly beaten cello, nefaraphone, musical saw, stethoscope and many other unlikely sources.

Nothing in Boom & Bust was born inside a computer, only analogue synths and realworld sounds recorded through mics and processed through tape, spring reverbs, modular kit, valves, transformers and crunched transistors

In addition to the sounds in the Kontakt instrument there is a pool of 500+ 24bit .wav loops to drop directly into your DAW or sampler for extra abuse, warping and sound design.

The glorious and madly creative forte of Boom & Bust is in hitting any note and realtime morphing through four BPM synced stem variations with the modwheel (or CC1). Then add other notes for more synced stem variations and more morphing. Bottom part of the keyboard is where the booms live and things get 'lighter' as you move up the keyboard for 6 octaves.

Reverse loops with the playhead control and stretch single loops across the whole keyboard with the note lock. Use legato to start a new loop from where you left the last one - all perfectly synced with your track.

Every control can be DAW automated or midi learned for complex processing and jamming.

Press Quotes

"So many surprises across keys. Wiggle that mod wheel. Use NOTE LOCK ON to make melodies. Explore convolution spatial effects. Indulge in glitchy abundance. Use buzzwords like "cinematic" and "epic" AND MEAN IT." - Torley
