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.

FabFilter 10th Anniversary Sale – 40% off all plugins

FabFilter has announced a limited time sale in celebration of its 10th anniversary, offering 40% off its plug-ins and bundles.

The company is proud to toast this occasion by announcing a generous ten-day sale, with a discount of 40% off all bundles and plug-ins, from April 14 to 24. In addition, FabFilter will make a charitable donation to Stichting MEMO, a local organization bringing children in their early years in contact with young professional musicians and their passion for making music.

Ten years ago, FabFilter released its first plug-in, FabFilter One, a basic but powerful synthesizer, promising exceptional sound quality and an eye for detail in both audio processing and design. That promise still holds true today, and the dedication to superb signal processing and well-designed, modern user interfaces and workflow remains undiminished.

FabFilter One and its Volcano followup ultimately led to the Creative plug-in range, with FabFilter Saturn being the latest addition. Renowned for their unique drag-and-drop modulation system and smart interface design showing only the components that are actually being used, all Creative plug-ins positively succeed in balancing a huge range of inspiring possibilities with enviable ease of use.

With the release of the high-quality compressor plug-in Pro-C in 2007, FabFilter laid the foundations for the ongoing Pro series, highly regarded for their high-quality transparent sound, beautiful interfaces, and well-thought-through workflow. Co-founder Frederik Slijkerman: “FabFilter Pro-Q, our EQ plug-in, is one of our absolute bestsellers and still one of the best examples of what FabFilter is all about: beautiful sound, fantastic workflow! We were really able to realize our vision of power converging with simplicity and elegance.”

Coming full circle, fellow FabFilter co-founder Floris Klinkert claims, “FabFilter Pro-MB is really a result of the 10 years we’ve now been working on audio plug-ins. It combines advanced dynamics algorithms with a forward-thinking, modern interface, rethinking the concept of multi-band processing.”

The sale ends April 24th, 2014.
