SampleScience, a renowned name in the music industry, has recently launched a new instrument plugin named Wolf Cat Beats. This plugin, available for both Windows and Mac users, features 22 drum kits sampled from two popular analog drum machines of the 2010s. The best part? It’s available for free.
Wolf Cat Beats offers a rich collection of 14 drum kits from the Wolf drum machine, available in both clean and guitar pedal processed variants. Additionally, it provides eight unprocessed drum kits from “The Cat” drum machine. This variety allows musicians to experiment with different sounds and styles, thereby enhancing their creativity and musical output.
The plugin is not just about providing a variety of drum kits. It also comes with a set of built-in effects for customizing each kit. Musicians can use distortion, delay, and reverb effects to modify the sound according to their preference. Furthermore, the plugin includes a feature to enhance beats with a sub-layer, adding depth and richness to the sound. For those who wish to add a vintage touch to their music, dynamic vinyl and tape layer effects are also available.
Wolf Cat Beats plugin boasts of several other features such as a multi-LFO, highpass/lowpass filter, and amplitude range controls. These features provide users with greater control over the sound, allowing them to create music that aligns with their vision.
Despite its extensive features, the plugin has modest system requirements. It is compatible with all major DAWs, except Pro Tools, and requires Windows 8.1/10/11 or macOS 10.14 and above, 266 MB of HD space, 2GHz Quad-core CPU or better with 4 GB of RAM or more, and 64-bit VST/VST3/AU Host.
