According to JMG Sound, Dropkick works across all electronic genres, from EDM and Drum & Bass to Techno, Trap, House, and more. The plugin is a purpose-built kick drum enhancer that combines various processing techniques to make your bass drums go BOOM. And best of all – you can grab it for about 20 bucks during the introductory period!

More Information

Each of the eight processors only has a single knob, but the developer says that there’s a lot going on under the hood. Phase Warp uses an array of analog-modeled filters to offset the lower frequencies, thereby shaping the character of the transient and reducing the peak level. Power is effectively another resonant filter that boosts the fundamental frequency and removes unwanted sub-harmonics.

Next up is DAMP, which reduces higher frequencies while keeping the transient intact. CLEAN is designed to remove boxiness and help the kick sit better in the mix. TRIM allows you to adjust the length of the kick trail to find the right balance between tightness and boominess.

SNAP is a transient processor that enhances the attack and punch of the kick. According to JMG Sound, it’s fine-tuned for kicks with frequency-dependent shaping of the attack stage to help keep the level in check. FIRE is a psychoacoustic processor that uses a combination of re-synthesis and analog-modeled saturation to enhance the sound of the kick. And finally, OVER is an “over-the-top” dynamics processor that stabilizes the low-end while bringing out high-end detail.


All of this combined makes Dropkick the ultimate toolkit for designing kick drums that stand out and turning weak bass drums into “super-kicks”, JMG Sound says. The audio examples sound promising – at the low introductory price, I’d say you can’t go wrong with this one.
