Hello everyone, and welcome to Blue Buzz Music.
In this article, we are going to talk about the best VST plugins for hip hop production – drums machines and synth in particular.
Let me explain why. When making a beat, you focus on one thing – the way the beat sounds. Is it too thin or a little too muddy? There is no ideal beat structure, but there is a good rule of thumb.
First, you create a melody with one of the synth VST plugins or samples. Then you add drums on the top of the melody, so they sound good together, and both have their own space in the mix.
There are tons of smaller steps such as picking the main melody and the sub-melody or putting all the elements of the drum set (a.k.a. kicks, snares, hi-hats etc.) together.
However, we won’t discuss them in this article.
