This feature has ended. We'd like to thank everyone who participated -- you are what makes this community great. Join us in congratulating the winner(s)!

Over a year in the making, BLOQ, the debut virtual instrument fromSample Magic was meticulously crafted to not only capture synth and drum sounds from vintage instruments but to then expose an entirely new level of possibility with them. Featuring over 2.6GBs of samples meticulously captured and curated from Sample Magic and AttackMagazine’s co-founder Sharooz’s extensive personal archive of vintage instruments, BLOQ delivers new sonic possibilities in a gorgeous and intuitive skin with custom patches for Ableton and Logic.

Sample Magic and Blend invite you to try BLOQ for yourself - the free demo offers plenty to get started, including patches from the Nord Lead, the TR-808, Lush Pad and the Retro Polychord - and create an original track or musical idea. Top 3 selections will receive the complete license for BLOQ!

Get Started:

  1. Download the free demo of BLOQ.
  2. Use the patches included in the demo to create an original track or musical idea.
  3. Publish your project by November 2nd with the tag BLOQ.

PLEASE NOTE: BLOQ requires a working version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5 with either Ableton Live 9 or Logic Pro X. You can download the Free Native Instruments Kontakt Player here.

This track was started using the demo version of the BLOQ virtual instrument from Sample Magic. Other instruments and parts where added to the mix as I tried to create an old-school acid house track in the style of Luke Vibert and such. Much fun was had as I crafted this little tune - hope y'all enjoy the result.

Wanted to make a bit of a movie soundtrack style tune since I have not done that type genre before. This is the result. This is also an entry into the BLOQ Sample Magic virtual instrument creation which was quite fun and quite easy and convenient to use (once the set up was completed). I used a BLOQ drum and a synth sound pack/instrument
