Puremagnetik has released Artifact, a Micropak created from digital anomalies and computer malfunctions.
Artifact comes packed with things you would normally want to avoid in the studio: digital aliasing, clock glitches, control 'voltage' waveshaping, SysEx errors and mis-quantized samples. The sound designers at Puremagnetik have harnessed these anomalies in a controlled environment and reprogrammed them in a more musical context for Ableton Live 8, Kontakt 3 and Logic 8/9.
Artifact is organized into 6 playable kits complete with macro controls for Ableton Live and a custom Kontakt GUI. In addition, Artifact includes a generous collection of looped MIDI clips* (the Kontakt version uses Apple Loops).
