As a sound engineer and music producer, having the right tools and plugins can make all the difference in my final product. This month, my go-to plugin has been KSHMR Essentials, and I can't recommend it enough for anyone looking to take their mixing and mastering or production to the next level. Whether you're producing hip-hop, electronic music, or any other genre, this plugin has something to offer.
One of the reasons I love this plugin is its ability to shape the kick drum and add power and punch to it. Working a lot with hip-hop, having a strong kick drum is crucial, and KSHMR Essentials allows me to tweak it to perfection. The plugin has quick go-to settings for bass, drums, kicks, synths and vocals making it easy to find the right sound for your track. Its versatility is a big highlight.
I also use it on my vocals bus to add clarity and glue to the vocals, but it also has options to add saturation for a bit of grit and crunch. This also makes it an ideal choice for hip-hop, where having a raw and powerful vocal performance is important.
Finally, I love how quick and easy it is. I can bring a sound to life in no time, making the mixing and mastering process a breeze. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced producer, this plugin is perfect for anyone who wants to elevate their tracks.
So if you're looking for a plugin that can help take your mixing and mastering to the next level, KSHMR Essentials is a must-have. Its ability to shape the kick drum, add clarity and glue to the vocals, and its quick and easy use is why it's my favourite plugin of the month.
