    Anyone know of any cool free Dubstep and Trap VSTs? Personally I keep finding nothing but soft synths lately. Here's some that I use from time to time:

    It can do some cool stuff if you mess around long enough.

    Itchy Dubstep VSTi Pack
    Some cool stuff in here.

    Still hard to use. But makes cool sounds.

    DSK Akoustik Keyz
    Good for Trap pianos if ya use a bit of reverb.

    Share with us anything that you use to make epic Dubstep and Trap sounds!

    What is the difference between a VST and a "soft synth?"

    That's like saying this piano only plays polkas, or this guitar only plays country and western.

    I think LoudOrDie is distinguishly pointing out that he/she is coming across more software synths than fx plugins, hence both vst, am I wrong? Just my two cents :)

    LoudOrDie, search through our software inventory on here, you will find lots of great plugins. Also, check out this link.

    Don' is promoting a free copy of Xpand AIR software synth for a limited time only. It retails for $69.

    Hey, Pete! How is it going! I think what LoudOrDie is trying to say there guys is the type of synth that LoudOrDie has been seeing more often. Trap and Dubstep are known for their HARD hitting, edgy, and sometimes, loud and abrasive synth sounds. You would not make a love ballad with Trap or Dubstep due to their HARD and noisy sounds.

    Soft syths, not my words, but anyways are used in R&B, Chillout, and pop for example and would not be a likely choice for Dubstep or Trap unless someone is making a Chillstep song or a Trapsoul song. The last two genres I mentioned, I did not make those up, ha ha ha! And, Gypsy Jazz is a genre too! :-)

    Yeah what I meant was sorta like what JosephFunk said. More hard hitting VSTs. (Good luck making a heavy growl or screech in the SwampXT.) Which is for making ambient sounds mainly.

    I did find Bass One which makes some cool dubstep-ish sounds.

    No offense to what I called "soft synths". I use em all the time. I was just looking into more "harder hitting" things similar to Massive, Spire or Serum.

    Dominator has some cool "Yoi" sounds and stuff.

    Any sort of effects that could help with the making of Trap or Dubstep would be greatly welcomed too. Just trying to make a cool list of plugins that would be useful to Dubstep and Trap producers, because there's ssoo many plugins to choose from.

    A quality synth, whether hardware or software, is only as good as the experience that the user has with it. "Hard" would generally denote the difference in attack and decay envelopes, so start there with whatever you have on hand.

    If you are talking about distortion, which would be another factor in "hard," then try using one of the multitude of free distortion plugins with whatever sound you've got. You may be surprised.

    I can appreciate the thread and it's direction, but it smacks of preset city to me, and if you want to stand out the only way you'll ever do that is to play with your own style.....I quite like Fat Freddy's Drop, now that's Dub with a capital D, but all the music is played with conventional instruments, drums, guitars, organs etc etc...there's no genre specific departmentalization going on, I can make my bass, guitar, keys fit into any genre..I mean who's driving the bus or is it driving you?

    Oh you make producing beats sounds fun. I enjoy reading about all these things on Looperman .

    True it really depends on the user, and how they use the VST instrument. Bbuutt was looking for suggestions on what others used. Again I doubt anyone could create a growl, screech, or wobble in BassDrum or Sakura. (FL Studio Plugins) Bbuutt I'll keep mentioning useful stuff as I find em, and hope that somebody finds something helpful.

    TwinCrusher is a nice distortion effect that can fatten up drums, and basses very nicely.

    The MX 2008 can do some neat FX that I use from time to time.

    Also, check out Spice website for Xfer Serum. Although it's not free, you can rent-to-own. Try it free for 3 days and pay as you go for $9.99 monthly. High quality stuff and lifetime upgrade. It'll definitely suit your need, if you're interested.

    @Spd2 Nightlife looks really promising! I'll have to try that out later.

    I did find Exotic the other day. It is fairly easy to use, and produces some nice sounds. And looks kinda similar to Serum. (The black and green theme anyways.)

    Bounce is pretty good for Electronic basses, and subs, and even more, if you play around a bit.
    Splash and the others on that page are pretty good too. I think I've tried all of em so far.
