Dope VST Beat Machine
204.6

Product Info:

Here’s a new drum plugin from a new plugin company called Dope VST

The plugin is called Beat Machine and it’s made to be a “Classic Hip Hop Drum Synth”

It’s more of a sample player than a synth, and the drums are definitely geared towards boom bap, underground, gritty, vinyl style production.

There’s something like 500 kits in this thing, easy to pull up, you can load stereo output or multi output versions.

If you want quick access to a ton of raw, classic drum kits, this may be something to look into.

    Do You think these are the same creators like “Music Weapons – Drum Weapons 3” ?
    Because its all the same concept… I MEAN, DRUM WEAPONS IS THE BEST Drum VSTi u can get in my opinion but if you look closely to the homepage and the vsti: there are many similarities
    Just look at the knobs of Drum Weapons 3 and dope vst
    They ARE the same!
    Okay okay… But whats my point??
    My point is i dont want to buy sounds that i own already just repacked… i dont want to say its scam but if there are the same sounds like DW3 then its pathetic in my opinion

    BUT NO DOUBT: GREAT SOUNDS…but maybe u will have it 2x..

    @Raphael, I thought the same, but I talk to the dudes from music weapons and they didn’t say this was there’s. I’m assuming maybe they licensed the same software. The new Drum Weapons is coming out and it doesn’t look anything like this anymore so that’s why I thought maybe these folks used the same software/builder. I’ve seen it happen before when people are making their own plugins, it’s usually a template type of plugin that will have a very similar layout. Either way, I thought it was cool for sure, but that was my first thought as well!

    @saintjoe, Ahhhh Ok thank You! I know nothing about Software/Builder but after i read your reply, it just makes sense.

    Thank You Saint Joe!

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Raphael, No doubt fam, that’s what I assumed as I’ve seen some different vst/plugin template type software and when people use it they will come out similar in layout. That would be my guess I would hope nothing shady is going on.

    I see what Raphael is saying above. It’s resemblance to DW is uncanny. I just got DW3 and the Knobs are the same. The kit list is also the same. The concept of multiouts is also the same. Anyway I am cool with DW so won’t be getting unless I have extra money to burn. Thanks for showing it though.

    Btw hou did you route the multi out in maschine for one instance of this plugin?

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Tiko, Yeah, I thought it the same at first. I’m thinking maybe they used the same software builder or even licensed it. I talk to the Music Weapons dudes, they didn’t tell me this was theirs. I’m thinking maybe anyone can get the base software and load their stuff into it.

    Tiko Reply:

    @saintjoe, That might just be the case. I talked to kevin aka vherbal and he never heard of it. Might just be the same developer as you say. Anyway, you know me. if it bangin as Shadow says below, then am on it.

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Tiko, Word, yeah, they used the same software to build their stuff, which of course has the same options.

    Tiko Reply:

    @saintjoe, Can you route dw to different out in machine? I know you can do it in a daw but not sure about Maschine

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Tiko, yeah, you can do it with any multi channel plugin now in 2.0

    [Reply]

    Tiko Reply:

    @saintjoe, Have you got a vid on Maschine tuts on how to do this. Better still, Can you please give walkthru on how to do in with this vst or DW

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Tiko, Yes I do, but quick verison is… If you are using Maschine 2.0, go to separate channels/pads and set the audio input to come from the outputs of the pad you have the plugin loaded on.

    Tiko Reply:

    @saintjoe, Still don’t get it SJ. Can you please give a step by step or point me to MT vid

    Tiko Reply:

    @saintjoe, damn! I knew how to do that with contact. Should have know all I had to do was exclude the
    midi destination settings from the process. I am getting old man.

    I actually prefer DW2 to 3. The sounds in DW3 have too much reverb in my opinion. Thats without using the verb knob at all. I however like the fact that I got all the sounds in Dw3 as Maschine expansion kits. Dope. Guess what though just got this Dope vst joint too. Haha! I am such a sucker for drums

    So how is this kit…. Is better then dw3…… LOOKIN to get dope vst or dw3 need help

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Juan, depends on what you’re looking for, both cover dope boom and bap style drums, I will be doing a video on dw3 probably next week.

    [Reply]

  11. Juan

    @Saintjoe it seams like the dope vst has more raw vinyl sound of boom bap drum kits…….. And dw3 has boom bap and other styles of hip hop drum kits

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Juan, Yeah, this joint is def more straight vinyl/boombap and dw is a mix of dope urban styles

    Hi i am all the way from TRINIDAD & TOBAGO this drum sample loop selling for 24.99 does it have to work with a DAW or MASCHINE i want to know this before i purchase it could it be installed on your PC JUST like that & used

    saintjoe Reply:

    @BARRY-BEATZ, Which sample kit are you referring to? Most likely you’ll need some sort of daw/host to use it.

    @SaintJoe Don’t know how I miss this review, but Im glad I found it. Just starting to stockpile some drum sounds and this looks like it would be a great addition. Just wanted to make sure that it works well with logic pro 9, no glitches and whatnot…Preciate the reviews Saint…

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @Klassyck, It loads as a plugin so you should be good, I’m not using Logic (on a PC) so I haven’t tested it with that.

  15. Sez

    Thanks for this review, just bought it and I must say, this is BANG for money. 99$ and this..damn, it actually beats a lot of kits out there. I just checked all the kits with a midi file they sent, all sound different. Hats might sound repetitive(but that’s the thing when it’s old school), kicks-snares-percussion, they all sound very very different(specially the texture on kicks). Thanks a lot for this review and much love and respect.

    @Sez, Thanks for watching, I use this plugin very often.

    [Reply]

    Sez Reply:

    @saintjoe, it is that good for real(I started with a kit and made a small demo for my page in like 5 minutes; the textures inspired me that much), also-“all kits sound same”-nope-two kits: Last Witness & Lick Shotz are same haha. But I must say, the entire team spent a lot of efforts in this and the price they put up for this is unbelievable for me.

    @Sez, Yeah, it’s well done for sure, I dig it.

    @SaintJoe Ok, so I finally purchase Beat Machine and have yet to receive my personal serial number. Tried to send a message to support and it said they were permanently unavailable…Use the website support and still haven’t gotten a response. Just wanted to know if anyone else had this problem and what’s up with DopeVST? It’s been about three hours now so I may be a little impatient, but the purchase email said within an hour. Let me know if you heard anything Saint…

    @Klassyck, I haven’t heard of any issues, I do know they are overseas though so it could be an issue with the time difference, but hopefully they get you taken care of as quick as possible.

    Can u edit the kick, hihat and snare seperately? Like does the pitch button work on just the hihat? or does it effect the whole kit?

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    It’s for the whole kit and not each sound in the kit.

    Can someone please explain to me, step-by-step how to assign individual pads to separate channels(dopevst multi out) in maschine?

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @chubauk, load the presets with the 4 in them, then go to separate pads on the channel tab and set the audio input to come from those inputs.

    @saintjoe,

    Hey Joe,

    I finally got the beat and the bass machines from Dope VST…

    How do I route ‘Route Separate Channels’ inside Machine 2.0??

    Thank for your help!

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @GC, Cool. You have to open one of the presets with the multiple output, then go to separate pads in Maschine and configure them to receive audio from the output of the plugin.

  20. GC

    I have tried that??
    Can you please give me a step by step??

    I know I’m asking much but would really appreciate it bro!!!

    GC Reply:

    @saintjoe,

    Thank you so much for all of your help! Much appreciated. But ever since I set up Beat Machine in Maschine …there have been “spikes in CPU” while recording, playback and performance causing ‘drag or delay’?? Never had that before with any issues in Maschine 2.3 with any of the many plug ins that I work with??

    Question:

    Is there a way to change the Dope VST plug ins between 32 & 64 bit for better performance without CPU spikes? If so, which is better and how do I change that??

    Please advise.

    [Reply]

  21. GC

    Anybody have any issues with the DAW crashing while trying to use Beat Machine 2.0 ?? Or CPU spikes??

    Maybe that’s the issue then…..

    saintjoe Reply:

    @GC, could be an issue with the new version, haven’t tried it to have any input personally.

    [Reply]

  23. Tiko

    Yeah Beat machine 2.0 is pretty unusable in Maschine. Spikes galore. Hopefully we get an update soon.

    Do you know how t use the ‘Nudge’ function with Beat Machine in Maschine 2.3??

    [Reply]

    saintjoe Reply:

    @GC, Nudge doesn’t have anything to do with Beat Machine, you just have to be focused on your midi notes in order to properly nudge them.

    Hey bro….I tried that several times while in keyboard mode and it does not nudge after selecting the events like it does when in pad mode on Maschine?? I’ll try it again tonight when I get to the project….
