BeatSkillz has released a free plugin that barks and bites. Slam Pup is a simple plugin that features a multistage tube drive and “thrusty” compressor to beef up your sounds.

BeatSkillz Slam Pup

This time BeatSkillz emulated a “thrusty” compression from BeatSkillz’ favourite American Compressor, and a”gritty” Multistage Tube Drive from one of BeatSkillz’ favourite British Saturators. The result is a 2 Knob beast, that can get you sounding “phat” in seconds. No guesswork or crazy science needed. Just tweak away and find your own “sweet spot”.

Slam Pup features

  • Warm multistage tube drive with a filling and fattening sound.
  • Thrusting punchy single knob intuitive compression that never sounds bad. Modelled on a famous American unit.
  • Great on drums, synths, bass and busses.
  • Dial in as much bark and bite needed with the signal blend (dry/wet) control.

Slam Pup is a free download in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac from BeatSkillz and distributor Plugin Boutique.
