Hattricks is a VST that you subconsciously know you need badly, and you’ll realize it once you see how it works!
Tops of the charts these days are filled with music that is at least to some degree inspired by the sound of Trap. To identify a tune as belonging to or deriving from the trap genre, it needs to have at least three elements: 808 Bass, 808 snare, and fast Hi-Hats rolls. 808 bass is easy to lay down (especially when you have the Subdivine bass instrument), snares are easily placed on 2 and 4* and then… then you either add an audio Hi-Hats loop and can’t change its sound later or if you have a reasonably fast hand and suitable midi controller you play a Hi-Hats pattern. Still, only a simple one may sound somewhat unexciting, or you step into that long, tedious and laborious process of clicking in the individual sounds with your mouse, which has nothing to do with being in the flow.
Unless you have Hattricks!
Imagine how much of your time and creative energy it will save you!
If you decide to change the sound after laying down the part, you can choose a sample from Hattricks’ colossal library or drag a favorite sample of your own. If you need to refine it, you can change its length, retune it, filter it with low pass and high pass filters and adjust its attack, decay, and release times.
No VST for Trap Hi-Hats would be comprehensive if it couldn’t let you retune selected parts of your sequence and let you make those characteristic tuned rolls. You can do it in two ways: by using a pitch wheel, or if you want some precise tuning by using a keyboard. The keys from C1 upwards would retune the sound’s pitch in half steps when pressed, and consequently, the keys from C1 downwards would retune the sound’s pitch down in half measures.
But what if you loaded a snare sample into Hattricks? Then you would turn it into a VST for Trap snare drum rolls! Then apart from the Divisions section, the Articulations section becomes handy since pre-programmed drum rudiments such as flam, drag, ruff, buzz, and roll come in two speeds and allow for pleasant and quick drum fills creation.
And what if you loaded a tonal sample into Hattricks?!? You would then turn the plugin into a sort of VST for trap melodies with which you first make a rhythm sequence and then play with the notes’ pitch.
And what will happen if you’ll load a kick sample into Hattricks?!?! In such circumstances, you’ll enter a highway to hell by changing it from a VST for Trap Hi-Hats into a VST for making heavy metal bass drum passages, but hey, isn’t that a bit over the edge?
Enjoy this plugin. You can use it for Trap, RNB, Pop, EDM, or for any genre you want, including Heavy Metal if that’s what you fancy!
