For this week only, Puremagnetik are offering BLIP - a collection of Atari 2600 sounds in multiple formats for free. If you're a fan of lo-fi vintage computer sounds, and own Logic, Ableton or Kontakt this is a great opportunity to get some freebies:
Blip instantly transforms your computer into a lo-fi and gritty sound source that contains the full sonic palette from classic video games such as Pong and Space Invaders. It is a unique collection of instruments, kits and looped beats sourced from the original Atari 2600 sound chip.
Each sample program contains raw waveforms from the Atari 2600 that have been layered and processed for use in a modern software sampler. Blip also comes packed with a collection of hot and crispy loops in Ableton Live Clip, Apple Loops (for Logic) and Beat Machine (for Kontakt) formats.

• Integrated Ableton Live effects chains and macro mappings
• Ableton Live MIDI clips can be timestretched without quality degradation
• Customized Kontakt KSP GUI for easy editing and instant parameter tweaking
