There’s plenty of sound designers and synthesists out there releasing freemium massive hip hop presets, it may seem like you have to dig far and wide but with a little hard work you can really find something special that you’ll be able to use over and over again.
Some of the best presets I use have lasted me years and how I get away with using them for so long is through reverse engineering sound! which is ultimately how I taught myself to synthesise from scratch but that’s a subject for another post.
Not being into trap, house or drum and bass like most producers, I know the struggle of finding decent massive hip hop presets when the market is completely crowded with products for hippy kid trends.
While a lot of them may think that Fruity Loops is a breakfast cereal their mum buys, I understand the demand is high and we all have to make money.
Let’s throw that aside for a minute and concentrate on the needs of the hip hop kids.
The Best 5 Hip Hop Massive Presets on The Interwebs…

3. Multiplier – 1,400 Massive Presets
