DUST ENGINE #2 square .png


Naive and guileless lo-fi for shimmering underscore and underdog beauty

Who needs presets ?

An experiment in chaos

for FULL version of Kontakt 6.7.1 and above


DUST ENGINE #2 is a uniquely quirky combination of odd chaotic synths and sparkling acoustic haze.

It doesn't even play the same sound every time !

4 articulations knitted from rare & weird hardware synths, glistening piano loops, maudlin trumpet and looped guitar, all mangled together with unlikely sampling to create a gorgeous gossamer haze or deep low miasma.

Inside the easy-to-use interface are 4 cunningly curated, interlocking articulations plus handy FX to quickly build the perfect sound for your sonic universe.

DUST ENGINE #2 is a liberation from preset hell that just wants to be explored - use the patch randomizers to get you started.


the sounds
A curated selection of electro & acoustic that SIT TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY
Long evolving samples of every note with interesting loops, multiple velocity layers and unlikely happenings.


Hammond 102200  + Dave Smith Evolver

4 chaotic round robins with 2 x Evolver patches and 2 x Hammond Synth patches.

Each note could be one of the four sounds, and you never know which you'll get.

All recorded through a Chase Bliss Generation Loss MKII for organic burble.

TAPE and GLUE controls

These controls beautifully interact to squash and breathe an organic, filthy wholeness into everything .

''Sound Dust makes one of the strongest arguments for the sampler as a true, expressive instrument. The care, creativity, quirkiness & MUSICALITY found in all their instruments has led to many inspiring moments for me. Highly recommended.'
