Dope VST presents their first product, Beat Machine, the authentic “hip-hop” vst/au drum machine. Dope VST describes Beat Machine as “specifically designed for Hip Hop producers who require that gritty 90′s Boom Bap sound, notorious for its fat crunchy drums and dusty beats.”
Beat Machine brings to you a gang of raw drum kits that you can effortlessly flip thru while playing one of the 50 including midi drum patterns. Beat Machine seems to cater to those that crave that dirty vintage vibe from machines like SP 1200 and MPC 3000. With the advent of so many drum samples being sold and catering to hip hop, Beat Machine‘s 500 drum kits, 100 premium legendary producers kits, over 1000 drum samples eq’d to boom bap perfection are worth the price of admission in itself. That price being $99, Beat Machine looks and sounds like a great value.
Beat Machine’s hallmark is, in my opinion, simple interface and authentically raw hip-hop drums. I think we’ll see a lot of great things from Dope VST and Beat Machine. At the moment Beat Machine is available for use on PC. Mac version is in testing and coming soon.
