ADSR Sounds offer the Hustle 2 ($69 retail price) virtual instrument by UJAM as a FREE bonus product with any purchase in October.
UJAM Hustle 2 is a virtual instrument designed for beatmakers. The instrument focuses on Roland’s legendary TR-808 drum machine, delivering ready-made patterns and fills that you can further customize.
The team at UJAM describes Hustle 2 as a “virtual beatmaker for Trap.” That’s a fair description, but I’m sure that the included sounds can also work in other music styles. After all, the 808 is one of the most widely-used electronic instruments on the planet.
The instrument comes with a collection of rhythmic pattern presets that cover various song sections. You can trigger different loops with your MIDI keyboard and spice up your project with Hustle 2’s arsenal of beats and fills.
Accessing different types of loops is easy. You can choose between intros, verses, choruses, fills, breakdowns, and more. All these types of patterns are available across different styles, so there’s plenty of variety in what Hustle 2 has to offer.
“Beatmaker HUSTLE 2 is your rhythmical fixer for bass music styles like Trap and Dirty South. On the money and ready to make a statement for all types of modern urban styles that need a dirty basement-shaking beat or gritty Grime groove laying down. Beatmaker HUSTLE 2 benefits from the fail-free design mantra by UJAM, meaning the learning curve is non-existent – just choose from one of 40 different styles and tell HUSTLE 2 what part of the song you want to play – Intros, verses, choruses, you name it, HUSTLE 2 has it covered.”
One of Hustle 2’s best features is the ability to drag and drop the MIDI pattern into your DAW’s sequencer. This way, you can use the included patterns as a starting point for making your own beats and loops.
It’s also worth noting that the plugin comes with a variety of drum kits, so there’s some flexibility to be had even if you decide to stick with the built-in drums.
The demo video embedded below provides a good idea of what Hustle 2 has to offer.
UJAM Hustle 2 is available in VST, AU, and AAX plugin formats for compatible DAW software on Windows and macOS.
The instrument typically costs $69, but it’s available as a free add-on with any purchase on ADSR Sounds this month. After completing the checkout process, it will be automatically added to your ADSR Sounds user account.
