Synth Magic has announced the release of Wonky Tape Atari, a free Kontakt 5 instrument made from tape recorded Atari 2600 video games.
The developer recorded an old Atari 2600 (Darth Vader model with various games) to a very old TEAC reel to reel, and then recorded the tape and chopped up the sounds and mapped them into Kontakt.
Wonky Tape Atari comes with presets and Multi’s, including drums, blips, drones and synthy pads. The Atari sounds have been stretched over long key ranges and give some nice lo-fi artifacts when low keys are played. The Kontakt library is good for lo-fi music and background sounds.
Wonky Tape Atari requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt (5.2.1 or above). The free Kontakt Player version is not supported.
