Plugin Boutique is offering a discount of over 80% off on Retro Hit by BeatSkillz, a drum instrument plugin that comes with over 600 drum hits inspired by the pop/dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s.

The plugin brings the sounds of vintage drum machines such as the E-mu SP-12, Oberheim OB-Mx, Linn Drum and Fairlight.

The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state preamps and compressors, including the Neve 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, API 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms, FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. We wanted to provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/ musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music, rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own.

Retro Hit for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is on sale for only $9 USD until March 31st, 2022.
