Best and most interesting tools for Hip Hop production (Kontakt instruments, sample packs, effects).
Firstly, I want to talk about Kontakt instruments, because this sampler is dominating the market right now, so here we go:
One Kontakt library that grabs my attention was BLACK DIAMONDS found on TheProducersChoise.com. Good sounding, good looking solution, if you make Trap, but of course suitable for many urban related genres.
Nice video review and good choice that will not make you broke.
Next you will need solid 808’s
Btw, if you have Ni Massive synth there are superb 808 presets from Red Sounds, but we will talk about them later on.
Next instrument is vocal engine EXHALE by Output. Vocal chops became so popular nowadays in every style of music. So, check this superb modern vocal engine. It’s more than chops, it’s real instrument. Especially useful if you making OVO style beats.
In Hip Hop bass section we have Urban Bass
Ok, there were some good choises for Kontakt, let’s move on.
Massive and Sylenth presets
Ni Massive and Sylenth 1 are two most popular softsynths on the market and Red Sounds proudly presets a bunch of powerful packs for theses synths.
Drums and other samples
If You like old school sound, you will like samples by RawCuts
Another great pack
And if You are after modern sound we would like to offer OVO INSPIRED DRUMS. Hard knocking. Great quality.
This is more, than enough to boost your production and creativity for a long time. I am sure you will like this selection.
And now we are moving to effects. Of course, it will be only small portion bur i will try to show plugins that I use and like myself.
BitterSweet v3 – The BitterSweet Transient Designer
The best part about this plugin- it’s free! I like it for tightening my drums.
Definitely, my go-to plugin for saturation and creative distortion.
For EQ FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is unbeatable choice. Simple, great sounding, handy in every situation.
For vocal processing there is very good plugin from well known company, especially i you like the make it quick. There are many nice presets.
So, that’s all for now .
Let’s make some beats….
