Puremagnetik releases Blip
Puremagnetik has released Blip, a unique collection of instruments, kits and looped beats sourced from the original Atari 2600 sound chip.
Blip doesn’t contain the prettiest sounds. But then again 1980 wasn’t the prettiest year! What Blip does contain is the full palette of the Atari 2600 sound chip that generated the classic themes for games such as Space Invaders and Pong. All sounds have been fully mapped and are ready for rejuvenation in your favorite DAW. So if 1980 was a bad year for you, redeem yourself and make some cool music with this unique and quirky sound set!
- Each sample program contains raw waveforms from the Atari 2600 sound chip that have been layered and processed for use in a modern software sampler.
- The Ableton Live version of Blip comes in Ableton’s multisample mode so that any Live user can take advantage of this colection. This Live Pack has been categorized into raw “Multisample Programs”, extensively tailored “Performance Racks” and 6 “Atari Percussion Banks” that utilize Ableton Drum Racks. Blip for Ableton Live also contains a collection of percussive MIDI clips complete with Macro controls and extensive rack programming.
- Customized for Kontakt & Logic. Each Blip multisample instrument and loop program comes loaded with effects, modulation routings and a custom KSP GUI for instant tweaking. The Apple Logic version includes a collection of EXS channel strips and advanced SIAL lo-fi percussion loops.
