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.

Multiplier – 1,400 Massive Presets
Now this one isn’t strictly hip hop, in fact it’s not hip hop at all but I trust you may know a guy named Multiplier, a few years ago I came across a Facebook post that he had put together a folder of 1,400 Massive Presets he had lying around on his hard drive, this guy may not be a hip hop producer but the presets he’s offered here give you a great foundation for deconstructing sounds and making some of your own.
