Gross Beat in FL Studio
This power of Gross Beat in FL Studio is highly overlooked. Quickly create beat stops, chops, scratch effects, turntable effects, tape stop, glitches, and much more. It is by far the best and most powerful plug-in I have used to create these types of effects. The other great thing is its an FL Studio Plug-in. The full version of Gross Beat isn’t a stock plug-in but it can be purchased as an add on. I highly recommend purchasing it. There are some free plug-ins out there that try to accomplish the same task but none of them are near as powerful as Gross Beat.
Gross Beat Presets
In the above video we run through some of our favorite Gross beat presets displaying some of its power. We take a 1 bar section of a beat we were working on and apply Gross Beat to get various effects. I really find this plug-in useful for transition effects. I like to apply it near the end of a verse, intro, or bridge section to mix things up a little bet and provide some variation to a beat.
Tape stop effect
This plug-in is also great for creating the very popular tape-stop effect in a lot of modern productions. This effect does exactly what it sounds like. When you apply it to a beat, it sounds like it the beat slows to a halt. This is used in a lot of popular productions and Gross Beat actually has a preset designed for it.
