VST plugins have become the glue that binds many processes in music making together and have gradually become essential to everything, from mixing to creative composition. Plug-in effects run within DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) in a similar way to virtual instruments. You insert them on your instrument or audio tracks and open them up in the same way as a synth; and like those virtual recreations of classic gear, plug-in effects can also emulate old gear. In fact, many of the early ones were developed to copy expensive analogue equipment again, just like virtual synths. However, now there’s also a whole world of other effects available, from creative and compositional, to those that even do your mixing for you. Here we look at the best vst plugins – both paid and free – that will help craft better beats.

The Dipset Sound Kit is tailored for hip-hop music producers with an east coast style. I’m sure we’ve all heard of Dipset before, and more notably Cam’ron and Juelz Santana.
This sound pack is stuffed with premium snares, kicks, hi-hats, sound fx, percussions and other hip-hop sounds that any music producer could put to good use.
These are especially good for producers just looking for FL Studio sounds since their pre-packaged sounds are pretty terrible. Just import the .wav sounds into your favorite beat making software.
