Someone needs to sample this sound of a meteoroid striking Mars

I’m pretty sure you can replicate this sound with a Roland Jupiter 8, but why when you can use something more exotic?

On September 5, 2021, the seismometer aboard NASA’s InSight lander detected something falling out of the sky. This was the first time the sound of a meteoroid impact was recorded on another planet. The sound comes in three parts: the object entering the atmosphere, its explosion into pieces, and the impact on the ground. Cool!

Then again, maybe it was Marvin testing his  Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.” You never know.
