Plugin Boutique BigKick

Plugin Boutique has announced the release of BigKick, a kick drum instrument plug-in in collaboration with Credland Audio.

The drum kit is the rhythm and groove of any track and the kick drum is the hearbeat of the groove. We know how important it is to get the kick drum right in the mix. BigKick was created with the sole intention of allowing producers to achieve the results they have always wanted.

Developed to make kick drum design easy and enjoyable, BigKick has a carefully selected set of features to help you get results quickly. And, unlike many other tools, the controls are limited to values that produce useful kick drum samples. It also lets you make the best possible use of existing sound libraries in your collection.

Big Kick features

  • Kick drum synthesis – can replicate the majority of today’s and yesterday’s kick sounds.
  • Factory library includes >300 attack types and 110 presets.
  • Tuned kick drums.
  • Easily integrates with your existing sample libraries.
  • Easier to use than any previous kick drum design tool.
  • Drag-and-drop sample creation.
  • Auto-play mode for instant start and jamming.
  • No phase shift free sound shaping.
  • Overdrive.
  • High pass filter (again, phase shift free): avoid nasty surprises in the bottom end.

Big Kick for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for £34.95 GBP.
