Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Finding malleable and varied beat software without the price tag requires a fair bit of trial and error, but if you're pressed for time, BeatSkillz Beatfactory Drums is an excellent example that should enhance a variety of genres.
Sampled from the MPC 2500 there are 10 kits to select from, each of which features a range of edit controls to tweak your sound including volume and pan for each sample pad, an ADSR envelope and built-in reverb. So if you're making Trap, Hip Hop, House, EDM, Dubstep and World, or just looking to experiment, this is a great one to try.
Beatfactory Drums is available for both Mac (AU/VST) and Windows (VST) and can be downloaded for free from the link below.
