Are you a producer or beat maker that's always looking for that extra bang when you make hip hop beats? Do you always feel like there's just not enough thump when you make rap instrumentals? I'm sure most of us in the beat making / production industry have felt the same, on some days a bit more, and on some days a bit less. I mean, when can a beat not have enough thump in hip hop music and get away with it, right?
Well, lo and behold, the music software company DDMF has launched a new compressor VST plugin that can be used in any music production software or beat maker software that utilizes VST plugin effects, such as FL Studio, Orion Pro, Cubase, Sonar, and others. Sorry Reason users, Reason still has not implemented external VST plugins. This is also available for both PC and Mac. This bad boy was just released earlier this week and ready to be used on hip hop beats and production everywhere.
The name of the plugin itself gives indication that it'll bring more bite to your hip hop instrumentals and rap beats. Named NY Compressor, is a clear indication of it's design and it's strive to bring to your hip hop music, that extra bang of compression to make your kick drums sound louder, more threatening to the beat, yet clean enough to where there is no clipping. And with several knobs to edit your compression, you're sure to be able to tweak your beats with power and precision with this new dynamic compressor.
The NY Compressor packs a ratio bearing of 1:10, up to four inputs which were designed to help support true sidechaining in your mix, a filtering option to select the frequency range of the compressing signal, and the NY Compression part of the plugin, which is an option to add amounts of the original signal to the compressed signal to bring a mix of original, and compressed weight to your hip hop music!
So how much does this heavy hittin', lightweight compressor VST plugin cost? What would you guess, $199? Lower than that! How about $79.99 for it? That price is still too high. Well, you're in luck. This compressor plugin is currently available as Donationware, which means you can purchase this plugin for a specific amount you specify. It appears it may be $5.00 but may actually be less than that. You can visit the manufacturer at http://www.ddmf.eu/
