How "Epic" is the Captain Plugins VST?

Mixed in Key dropped a pretty huge update to their Captain Plugins bundle. Which includes Chords, Beats (drum lines), Bass (bka Deep), and more. I'll try Chords & Deep in FL Studio (it works in Ableton Live, Logic X, and few other DAWS on both Windows & MacOSX). Let me know how you feel about it in the comments below.

The Free Kia Instrument VST Plugin is Back! or Is It?!?

The free Kia Instrument is a VST plugin for both Windows & MacOSX (works in all DAWs). The original version was taken down due to possible trademark infringements but they did some minor tweaking. However, it's still a mono synth (sadly). I do enjoy the reorganization of the patches. It seems more useful than last time. What do you think??

Enhancing Drums With Percussive Loops! Borsta VST Plugin

Borsta is a brush style percussive loop VST plugin that works on both Windows & MacOSX (in all DAWs)! It can basically enhance simple drum lines using one finger. I'll demonstrate it using the MPC Live 2 & the MPC software (both trap & house). Borsta has tons of presets & can be manipulated too. My only complaint is the degree of difficulty on the sequencer & wonky tempo hosting (very noticeable in the MPC software but not game breaking. Let me know how you feel in the comments!

Waves Audio Dropped a Sampler VST Plugin CR8 Review

Wave Audio's CR8 is an one shot sampler based plugin with the ability to create key groups, layers, multi-samples, time stretch, & granulize wav files. It works in both Windows & MacOSX (and in all DAWS). It comes with an A.I. driven sample manager that replaces sounds based on transient characters & "smart tag" it. The stand out feature of CR8 is the ability to modulate parameters. Let me know how you feel about this in the comments!

How To Make Easy Hi Hat Patterns in Seconds! Thenatan Hatz VST Plugin Tips

Thenatan Hatz is a VST Plugin (for both Windows & MacOSX) that helps you create easy hi hat patterns in seconds!!! I'll demonstrate how it works in FL Studio 20.9 (but it works in all DAWS). It's essentially a note repeater sampler based plugin. It's obvious that Thenatan was inspired by hardware based production functions like "note repeat" on the AKAI MPC. Which makes it a great companion for Image-line FL Studio. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Unlike Output Arcade, you're not forced into entering your credit card to use it! However, there's a paid version that gives you unlimited samples, loops, or what LANDR calls "sets". I'll demonstrate how to use it & give you some tips. Let me know how you feel in the comments.
