True Next Generation Kick Design

Hardcore Kicks VSTi is an hybrid VSTi synthesizer for Windows. This synthesizer is designed especially for Hardcore and Hardstyle producers in order to make easy and quick the creation of kicks and basslines. Easy creation not mean just sound design, but the general idea is to make also track production quick and easy by allowing quick and stunning automations through the host program. The second version of Hardcore Kicks VSTi is presented as an hybrid synthesizer as it run also with a wavetable oscillators including analog and digital waves with a complete set of wave shaping tools.

Hardcore Kicks VSTi 2 is the second generation of the synthesizer to not be considered an update. The second generation of the VSTi is a passage from a sample based synthesizer to an Hybrid, wavetable based and multi featured synthesizer. HKVST 2 maintain all the basic functions of the previous version as wave loading and effects; but 3 new filters and a new bitcrusher/samplerate redurcer effect has been added. What makes Hardcore Kicks VSTi 2 great are the new creative possibilities of free oscillators and wave shaping features. A new core and a new way of kick generation to approach all the needs of music producers.

This is by far the most powerful and amazing VST in my arsenal. Gone are the days when you needed separate VSTs for your distortion and wavetables. This VST combines it all into one, and the combinations are endless.

I can sit down for hours just messing with this plugin and make an infinite amount of kicks.

With a little bit of EQing and compression, you can use this to make some really powerful and professional sounding kicks. I will be using this plugin for all my tracks from now on.

Also, if you experience any difficulties, hit up the forums. He is quick to respond and very helpful.

5/5 stars!!!

Great Plugin!!! For this kind of drums i used to layer some 909 kicks and play with lots of different distortion plugins to get the results i wanted. But this little gem of a plugin offers it all!! It is very user friendly, it runs stabile (on cubase 7) and most importanly it delivers really nasty Kickdrums. I recommend this plugin to every Hardcore / Hardstyle producer. P.S. The user support from Corestylers is very good too.

Good things! 1. Instant results! Nice set of presets. 2. Easy to pitch kicks, if you want to make hardstyle you love this. 3. In this new version v2.5.1 serial activation works better. 4. Excellent Support! Bad things! 1. Needs a detailed Manual. At first is a bit difficult to work with wavetables/samples. If you stay away for 2 months or more, you need again to guess how to use it. 2. Needs a better Skin. One to easy read controls, numbers and knobs levels.
