The combination of five Kits, six Mix presets, an Ambience control, the Kick
Pump and the Sweep knob gives you extremely versatile control over the
drum sound without requiring any sound engineering skills. The six Mix presets you can select here tweak hundreds of parameters in Beatmakers HUSTLE’s built-in mixing console. Again, the preset names should be quite telling.
The key control here is the Amount knob. It lets you set your preferred
balance between a neutral setting of the Mixing Console and the preset’s
most extreme setting. This is not a simple Dry/wet control, but actually a
macro control, turning the mixing console’s parameter individually under the
A good filter is always useful. The Sweep control is a dual filter. With the
knob straight up, the filter is bypassed. Turning the knob towards the
minimum position applies the low pass filter (LPF) – it cuts the highs. Turning
it towards maximum engages the high pass filter (HPF) – now the lows are
reduced. The Sweep knob makes the sound woolly or paper thin.
The Ambience knob lets you adjust the amount of space. Ambience can
make the entire groove change its character from bone-dry to the Hamilton
Mausoleum.These two, the Sweep and the Ambience controls, can be automated in your DAW to create drastic sonic changes to the dynamics of your song.
This knob adjusts the output volume of Beatmaker HUSTLE for maintaining
an optimal input level into the mixer or subsequent audio processors.
