PluginBoutique, the software-focused sister site to Loopmasters, have released their debut proprietary plugin, called Big Kick. Created in collaboration with Credland Audio, Big Kick was developed to make kick drum design quick, easy and enjoyable. With ease of use in mind, the interface is simple to grasp and controls are split into two sections, one for tailoring the attack and the second for tuning the body of the sound.
PluginBoutique claim that their single-purpose plug-in can replicate the majority of today’s and yesterday’s kicks sounds, and to to get you started there are 300 attack types and 110 presets created by Freemasons, Niche Audio, Cutline and others.
Big Kick also features an overdrive control and a high-pass filter, which PluginBoutique claim do not introduce any kind of phase shift.
The plug-in is available on Mac and PC in 32- and 64-bit Audio Unit and VST and in 64-bit AAX. It can be purchased from the PluginBoutique web site for £39.94$66.77.
