BeatSkillz bring back the 80′s with “Retro Hit” at DontCrack!

Our friends at BeatSkillz “bring back the 80′s” with their recently announced new plug-in, Retro Hit! And, it’s available on promo for ONLY $39 (MSRP $59) until Friday 14th October, 2016.

Here’s what they have to say…

As the 80′s sound is back and has been creeping up in modern chart topper tracks by major artists, as well as new soundtracks for tv series and film, BeatSkillz couldn’t hold back and had to release a drum plug-in based on the hit sound of the 80′s. Retro Hit is inspired from the pop/dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980′s. The plug-in provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms, FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. BeatSkillz provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music, rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The plug-in provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch.

The samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines, namely; EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pre’s, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

These sounds will be instantly recognizable and will inspire you to work fast and sound great!

BeatSkillz Retro Hit is available on promo for ONLY $39 at The DontCrack Store.
