A percussive instrument created from the sounds of NASA's Perseverance rover ...

The story

“Perserverance” is science in the making. The latest sample library from Jo Ranger through Audio Artemis, “Perseverance” has been forged by the actual sounds of NASA’s newest rover by the same name, and the desolate Martian landscape. Combined with haunting, resonant trumpet noises, “Perseverance” is perfect for moments of unease, tension, and to give your score a wild futuristic feel.

This cut-down, free version for Pianobook features “CO2 95%” – a percussive instrument featuring deep booms, metallic twangs, and gritty textures that paint a hostile world.

The full version includes even more sounds and features, such as a sequencer and twin pads, and will be available for £4.99 from 13th August 2021 at

  • Perfect for those gritty, industrial Trent Reznor type sounds

    This is a great library. It's brilliant GUI makes the sounds easily controllable, and while it essentially does one thing the library can offer up a wide range of alterations on the sample. It provides the user with a great range of industrial, distorted hits. The great programming with the distortion and grit faders means you can also get those honky resonances that you often hear in modern film scores.

  • A nice demo, but nothing to do with it

    I just personally don't like the sounds that come off of this patch. It produces some very short and distorted sounds which can sound awesome with lots of reverb, but I do not like how distorted they sound at all, even with the grit setting turned down. The GUI is nice, but from a design perspective I think it doesn't match the theme at all. I also don't like the horizontal controls of the knobs. It always confuses me since most premium plugins are vertically controlled.

  • Nice Teaser to the Full Product

    The GUI is great but the sound has not much use contextually- great for sound design stuff. I'm sure the full version has a lot more to offer!
