Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale on the plugin instrument by DopeSONIX that gives beat makers and crate diggers an instant library of royalty-free, vinyl style Hip Hop samples.

The Crate Digger plugin comes with 1,280 unique handcrafted samples distributed across 80 included patches, including rhodes chords, old synth riffs, chunky guitar stabs, orchestral runs and delicate piano melodies among a host of useful FX.

When we released our debut plug-in Beat Machine a year ago, we knew many beat makers drum problems had been solved, 6 months later when Bass Engine was dropped onto the public, the low-end problems encountered by so many was helped too. It became obvious to us that to complete the Hip Hop producers toolbox we had to make a plug-in that would allow producers to recreate sample influenced beats without the common problems associated with digging vinyl.

Crate Digger has been inspired by the dusty, crackly atmospheres and chopped up sampling techniques utilised by Hip Hop producers in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. Due to the limited amount of sampling time MPC’s had in this period, beat makers developed clever ways to create sonic soundscapes utilising short samples of Jazz, Funk, Rock and Soul vinyl records.

Crate Digger (VST/AU) is on sale for £29.95 GBP / $39 USD until May 31st, 2024.
