Perseverance

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 audioartemis.com

  • 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.

  • Distorted Glitch hop

    While i cant see myself personally using these sounds except in very specific scoring situations i think they are really unique and anybody that is into these really distorted glitchy type sounds I'm sure would love this. They can be used as drums and percussion but also processed to work as trailer effects and hits. The GUI is really professional looking and the creativity of this instrument is awesome

  • 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!

  • VERY distorted sounds

    I am personally don't a fan of the sounds that come off of this patch, but I can see them becoming more useful with some extra bit of processing. The patch produces some very short and distorted sounds which can sound awesome with lots of reverb. Even with the grit setting turned down, they are pretty damn distorted. 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 in plugins are vertically controlled.

  • Noisy and distorted drums

    These noise hits are interesting, especially in their provenance. There are three basic samples being used here, all similar in nature. They basically sound like white noise blasts being shaped by a resonant lowpass filter. They're interesting, and playable because of good editing, but not particularly useful. Perhaps the full version of the library has more to offer, but based on what I hear here, I'm not in a hurry to investigate the full version. Even so, the GUI is very professional and I'm sure these sounds will appeal to some people.
