The VSTi plugin market has been recently flooded with newcomers, due to the once secret knowledge required to create these tools, finally being shared by some of the experts. Let’s not get this wrong, some of what is being commercially released is not of value to anyone.
Seeing as though almost everyone you meet these days is producing their own music on some kind of DAW, the one thing that stops most mortals from being on the same level as those who reap millions from the game, is their ability to utilize the potentially powerful plugins.
“Bomdrop” has recently been released to the market, which is one of those packages that will take amateurs and experienced engineers alike, to the next level. The easy, pre-automated options within this powerful little plugin, proves that all levels of experience can create that ever-popular Dubstep wobble bass and glitch insanity.
It wasn’t that long ago that you would only hear the awesome insanity, which is Dubstep wobble and glitch, in Dubstep and sub-genres alone. Now that sound is everywhere and is fast becoming the norm for it to appear somewhere in most styles of music. Whether is be a Dubstep style half-time breakdown, or the simple bass sound itself, this sound surely has cemented itself in contemporary music and it is nothing to be ashamed of.
The BomDrop Bundle is a great fit for anyone heading down the same road as EDM is currently going. It seems that this really is in a class of it’s own as far as the pain it saves the user, when you are using multiple plugins to manipulate one sound, or applying them to several elements of your track. Almost everything can be done with this one pack.
The technical production elements such as LFO automation and pitch control issues which can take some people a long time to learn, can be circumvented with the Bomdrop. It has what we have termed “pre-fab” sounds and loops, so anyone can program the comprehensive Dubstep sound, with relative ease.
Favorite Features of Bomdrop:
- No shipping involved, you download the Plugin off their site
- Smooth operating Mac and PC compatible plugins
- Hundreds of pre-made loops, samples and sounds for Dubstep production
- Quickest and Simplest Plugin to create the newage EDM sound
- Extensive experience not required
In addition to the Main Plugin, the whole download package consists of:
3 x Bomdrop Sample Packs – As a limited bonus, Bomdrop state that they are giving customers every single sound that is built into the VST, as separate .wav files. There is over 1700 loops, wobbles, kicks, snares, FX etc etc. I’m sure you all have folder after folder of sounds and samples, but this means you will never need any more ever again. Possibly the largest (not to mention diverse) collections of drum kits, instrument sounds, samples and loops you can get in one place.
Versions for multiple OS – If you happen to use both Mac AND Windows machines, then you will love the fact that you can get both versions for no extra cost. There is up to four separate licences that you will be entitled to when you buy the plugin.
Live performers and studio-heads all know that we do need to spend money on some tools, as the free, professional studio, just does not exist. Having said that, for the measly price tag they have put on the launch version of this Bundle, I would suggest that most of you grab it while you can. (The video on the website can be a little irritating, but we must look past that!)
In closing, the Bomdrop Package has definitely set a new standard, or even created a whole new “genre” of plugin, as almost anyone with any basic DAW skills can produce professional sounding Dubstep and EDM elements with ease.
