How To Make A FREE Hip Hop Beat Machine [Plugin Alliance – Brainworx bx_subfilter]

How To Make A FREE Hip Hop Beat Machine [Plugin Alliance - Brainworx bx_subfilter]

Here are a couple of FREE things you can use right now to make some killer Hip Hop beats. I recently got a copy of bx_subfilter from Brainworx and wanted to check it out. So I started digging around in my dropbox for some sounds to load up into Pro Tools.

I had already downloaded some great drum loops from The Drum Broker at HipHopSamples.com and forgotten about them because they were sitting in a folder untouched. So I loaded those up in my session and threw the Brainworx bx_subfilter on. Holy Shnikees, 

This combo sounds incredible!

The bx_subfilter is the perfect plugin to add that fat resonant low end onto a hip hop sample. It can totally transform a kick drum inside a loop. I was able to turn a couple of knobs and go from the loop sounding like a single drum head on the kick to a nice big double head. It sounds like I put an actual resonant kick mic in front of the drums. So cool!

But don't take my word for it. Listen to this video and you can hear how quickly I was able to get a really cool sound. And remember both these things are FREE. So you can go get them right now:

Overview:

This free plugin will be added to your account automatically when you join Plugin Alliance. If you already have an account you can download and start using this plugin today.

Polishing your mix’s low end can be tricky. Bass DI tracks can sound mushy, and kick tracks can lose their “pop.” Sometimes everything below 100Hz can become such an undifferentiated soup of noise that you just don’t know where to start! Start here: The bx_subfilter is just the ticket for adding clarity and definition to tracks that have troublesome low frequencies. There are lots of expensive and complicated EQ plugins out there, but when it comes to shaping your low end, the bx_subfilter is unique for its ease and simplicity. With just a few quick adjustments to its four-knob interface, you can breathe new life into those 808s that have been muddying your mix.

The bx_subfilter is a free plugin that borrows from the “Filter” section of its larger counterpart, the bx_subsynth. It’s the perfect plugin for anyone who loves the bx_subsynth’s unique approach to low-end filtering, but doesn’t need the subharmonic synthesis. If you think that cleaning up your low end shouldn’t break the bank or require twenty knobs, we’ve got a plugin for you.

Sign up at Plugin Alliance today and you’ll get instant access to the bx_subfilter, along with our five other free plugins. No dongles, no hassles, and no payment required!
