After another six months of spurious studio sampling, Sharooz returns with a bumper Bloq update packed with an extensive addition of new sounds, patterns and workflow tweaks.

In the drums department there are 15 all-new drum kits – sourced from the Linn LM-2, Oberheim DX and Roland CR-78 amongst others – plus 200 drum patterns to explore.

Synthwise there are five new patches featuring over 300 multi-samples from the Roland Juno-60 and Sequential Circuits MultiTrak.

Finally there’s a number of under-the-hood functionality tweaks including individual stop/start controls for precision-perfect DAW syncing.

BLOQ is available for purchase for £49.95 GBP.
