The plugin is relatively straightforward; it’s a collection of 155 kicks, subs, and 808s with some tweaking options. The GUI has a few sections, starting with Preset selection.

Once you have a preset loaded, you can start to shape it further via the Envelope, LFO, and Instrument sections.

The Envelope section has just two simple controls, Attack and Release. The LFO section is similar, with controls for LFO Rate and LFO Depth.

With these kinds of sounds, you don’t really need to add lots of crazy effects to have a big impact. So, whether you are looking for something that adds weight to another sound or something that hits hard on its own, you should be able to get it with Bassaker 808.

The Instrument section has four control knobs: Pan, Gain, Pitch, and Glide. These controls give you a little more ability to blend the sound in your mix or make it pop out.

You can play all of the preset sounds chromatically to create melodic content. If you are using it melodically, the Pitch and Glide controls can often make it more interesting. Sometimes it’s good to take some of the harshnesses away or even detune slightly, depending on the feel you want to achieve.

Downloading Bassaker 808 doesn’t take too long. When you complete the free transaction on AudioPlugin Deals, you’ll receive a code by email. You are then directed to use that code on the ZamplerSounds store to download the plugin for free (the download is a .rar file that you’ll have to extract).

There are a million options when it comes to 808s, and most of them are good enough. Whether you use a specific plugin or library as your go-to choice, use stock sounds or process them further, you get the job done.

I look at Bassaker 808 like I look at quality sample packs. I might already have a million options, but a million and one won’t do me any harm. Plus, it’s something that can give you quality sounds quickly, and that’s important.

If you want to get Bassaker 808 free, you’ve got till June 25th.

  1. Danke schön! :-)
    Quite an easy way to get it, after being directed to Zampler Sounds, didn’t have to login there, just input the code I got and then could download the product.

        • Hey Ron, sorry for the slow response, and sorry you are having trouble with the download!

          I know there are a few steps, but on my end, it was all fairly instant. After making the free purchase on AudioPlugin Deals, I got two emails from them; an invoice, and another with the discount code, and link to add the product to my basket on the ZamplerSounds website.

          Once the transaction went through on the ZS website, I got a final email with a View Your Order link that takes you to the download.

          I take it you you did all of that and just never got the final email?

          • Hi James, I forgive you. All good. Yes I did everything you have described including entering my email and location of residency and I recieved no Bass plug-in e-mail.

            Would it be possible to e-mail me the VST James? 🤙

              Hey Ron, sorry to hear about the download issue. BPB can’t share software from other companies. I suggest contacting APD directly or trying a different email address.

  2. thanks as always for the great posts – it seems as though this has been taken down. it’s throwing “Sorry, this product cannot be purchased.” on APD and is showing the normal price on Zampler. i sent in a ticket to APD.
