CLUSTER a Zebra 2 Sound Set collection by Sound Dust

CLUSTER is a compilation of 246 presets made from a series of radically different synth architectures each pushed to its limits to produce small families of amazing sounds. U-He’s Zebra 2 is a compelling semi-modular soft synth with almost too many sonic possibilities under its hood. Stunningly beautiful slow organic pads, deep complex basses, chaotic and viscous throbs, FM and analog drumkits, dusty modeled keyboards, warped alien leads, glorious dissonant evolutions and arps.

CLUSTER isn’t aimed at any specific genre – although it does carry the strange and beautiful Sound Dust DNA of other instrument designs – CLUSTER is ear fruit intended to trigger and inspire new musical thoughts and sonic inventions. CLUSTER includes 246 inspiring patches for Zebra 2 wrapped up in a bespoke Sound Dust skin + 6.7GB of sampled loops and hits.

If you don’t own Zebra 2 you can still enjoy the joys of CLUSTERing with the massive CLUSTER earfruits loop pack. Over 2000 tempo-synced loops and one-shots sampled from the Zebra engine. These are really handy to drop into your DAW of choice or even into Kontakt to create your own bespoke instruments.


  • Bespoke Sound Dust skin
  • 246 themed presets – bass, chaos, drum machine, dust, keys, low, slow, solo, throb plus arp variations
  • 4 XY pad controllers per preset

CLUSTER Earfruits

Earfruits is for all that need the WAV files or does not have Zebra 2. Concerned that my regular Kontakt clients might feel left out Sound Dust started experimenting with sample loop making of the presets. Two weeks later Sound Dust built a ridiculously massive 6.7GB bag of looped wavs and one shots (earfruits) that are great for dropping into your projects or even into Kontakt to create your own inspiring vibes. Not in any way the poor relative of the Zebra version – these earfruits are a genuinely useful resource in their own right.

  • 6.7GB of 24bit/44.1khz .wav samples
  • 1600 themed loops – chromatically sampled C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C with BPM information
  • 400ish one-shot drum hits – kicks, snares, hats and percussion
