VST Buzz has launched a sale on BLOQ, the vintage synthesizer and drum machine virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt, including customized Racks for Ableton Live 9 and Logic EXS-24/Ultrabeat versions.

Over a year in the making, Bloq is the result of months of arduous and carefully crafted sound design and sampling from Sample Magic co-founder Sharooz’s extensive personal archive of vintage instruments.

Featuring over 3GB of sample data presented in carefully collated and customised presets, “Bloq” by Sample Magic has been made using some of the most iconic and revered synthesisers and drum machines of all time.

Drawing from an enviable line-up of 19 synthesisers and 22 drum machines, every key of every patch was painstakingly sampled through a variety of high quality preamps at 24-bit resolution via the Prism Orpheus soundcard, resulting in a collection of sounds that is perfect for electronic, dance, pop, hip hop and much, much more!
