QUOTE FROM CREATE DIGITAL MUSIC’S PETER KIRN

You’ve seen kick drums that emulate the 808 and such, or synths with a couple knobs. UltraKick goes way past that, for complete sound control.

If you’re content to just drop four Roland sounds on the floor and leave them there, move along – nothing to see here. UltraKick represents months of obsessive work by creator Daan Pothoven for a different breed of producer – someone who wants to dive deep inside a sound and transform every detail.

That doesn’t mean it’s intimidating, though. Oh, sure, you might forget that it was a kick you were trying to make in the first place, because this is kind of an interesting experimental synth for all sorts of deep sounds. But everything’s graphical, it’s loaded up with some useful presets, and it’s intuitive enough to make minor or major tweaks inside that bang of the drum.

    This is by far the best sounding kick I’ve have ever gotten, easy to use interface, easy to change the sound to what you want and tune the kick to your song. Not only that, but the kicks slice through the mix incredibly. A must by if you want kicks that cut through a mix. This is now my go to for kicks.

    Best money ever invested in a plugin! I tried lot of plugins about kicks and this one is really the best one. If you are into techno, this is THE plugin to have. I think that those who dont have ableton and max yet will jump in the boat just for this one 🙂
