808 Plugin Fl Studio

Posted : admin On 1/25/2022

Creating asub bass can be very easy: Open your favorite (bass) synth, turn on a sine ortriangle oscillator and boom, you got a nice and clean sub bass.

The Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer (a.k.a. The “808”) was one of the first programmable drum machines (“TR” standing for Transistor Rhythm). Introduced by the Roland Corporation in early 1980. It was originally manufactured for use as a tool for studio musicians to create demos. 1 is a fresh collection of dope 808 Bass Samples ready to give you the edge in your next Hip Hop production. Inspired by Travis Scott, Post Malone, Lil Nas X, J. Cole, Kodak Black & Offset. 1 was built upon quality research of the 808s they use in their chart topping hits.

Sometimes,a sub bass like this won’t do, though – you might need a little more bombast. Forthis case, I’ve created the following list where I’m collecting free sub bassVST plugins and sample libraries.

Note: Make sure to use headphones or quality speakers to listen to the audio examples. Sub frequencies do not translate well on phone and laptop speakers.


Format: VST, 32 bit + 64 bit
OS: Windows, Mac

Audio examples:

Xsub is a free808 sub bass VST brought to you by Hexloops and SimplySounds. According toHexloops, Xsub was created “using analog synthesizers, digital sine waves,guitar amps and other fancy gear.” A total of 36 different bass sounds areincluded, each spanning two octaves. I was surprised by how much the includedsounds differ in character. Some of the sounds include an 808-ish click in thebeginning, while others are smooth bass sounds. Many of the presets are more onthe distorted side – and while this means that Xsub might be a little dirtierthan some might like, this is also what gives some of the sounds their uniquetone and presence.

Xsub has abuilt-in ADSR envelope, a panning knob and even a reverb. There’s also a pitch-modulatingLFO.

You can download Xsub from the Hexloops website.

X-Eight Lite

Format: VST/AU, 32 bit + 64 bit
OS: Windows, Mac

Audio examples:

X-Eight Liteis the free lite version of X-Eight, an 808 and sub bass VST/AU plugin createdby Thenatan. While the paid plugin contains over 1000 presets, X-Eight Litecomes with a total of 80 sub bass and 808 presets. That’s a good amount ofpresets for a free plugin! What’s even better is that these sounds are all verydistinct, creative and fun to play with.

For some,the main issue with X-Eight Lite might be that many of the sounds are not subbyor subtle enough and will steal quite a bit of attention as they contain plentyof high frequency content. However, depending on the style of music you’remaking, this might also be a good thing – these samples bang hard!

If you wantto remove some of the high frequency content, you can use X-Eight’s built-inlow pass filter. Besides attack and release, you can also dial in the rightamount of glide. This feature makes X-Eight Lite even more useful for creatingengaging beats.

There’sanother issue with this particular preset selection if you’re looking for subbass for layering purposes. Most of the included samples feature a prominentkick or click sound in the beginning. While you can lengthen the attack or pulldown the filter to remove some of the kick/click sounds, this will also shapethe sound in a way that might not be practical for your purpose.

I alsodiscovered an odd behavior that you should be aware of when using the filter:When the filter is completely at 0 and you start turning the knob up slightlywith your mouse, the knob will be sluggish and not move but the filter will, infact, open. (Note: I don’t know if this bug exists just in the context of mysetup or whether it’s reproducible somewhere else.) This is not a big problem,but it’s good to be aware of it.

To get X-Eight, you’ll have to add it to your cart on the Thenatan website. You can decide what you want to pay ($0 is okay as well) and are then redirect to a page where you have to type in your email address. After you’ve submitted your information, you will receive a download link in your email inbox.


Not happy with the selection? Here’s more:

  • subfreak (useable sound but GUI is TINY) (VST / Windows / 32 bit)

About thispage

I decided to focus page exclusively on plugins and libraries that have their strength in the sub range. There are many other bass synths and libraries with a wider range of bass tones that I will cover in other articles.

Over to you

If you knowof any other cool sub bass plugins, I’d love to hear from you! Write a commentbelow or get in touch here.

The ONLY 808s you need (in your life!)

After blood, sweat and tears - we are proud to bring you another EPIC library of JUST 808 basses.

We called it 808 Warfare - because the 808s in this product are aggressive, loud and unethical.

  • Huge, EPIC 808 basses that 'rattle the walls'
  • Over 169 WAV samples & 41 Kontakt patches
  • WAV & Kontakt 5 Format
  • Pitched perfectly across your keys
  • Mixed and processed to perfection
  • No need to tweak - we already did the hard work to make these 808s sound incredible!

Great Sounding 808s

We know how to make an 808 sound right. Our goal for this library was to present a 'polished', ready to use collection of 808 basses - so you get great 808's without touching a knob. You can get to work knowing that the 808's you are using are of the best quality, and processed, EQ'd, compressed and transient shaped perfectly.

If you are looking for HUGE 808 basses that rattle your subs like crazy then this in the product you need in your life...


When working on a track using 808 Warfare - you can play out your bassline, then go back and click next to switch through the 808 patches until you find the perfect 808 for the track you are working on.

Each patch is pitched correctly to your keys. So if you hit C1 - you'll get an 808 pitched perfectly to C. This means you can write a bassline, then go back and switch patches quickly to audition the best sounding 808 for your track!

Saves time, and makes your workflow so much faster.

Simple Interface.

We wanted to make this module quick and easy to use. No bloated features. Less time tweaking, more time building tracks.


After the massive success of Urban 808, we went back in the lab to work on a follow up - and we made sure it was bigger and better.

We crafted each 808 from scratch for this library. This is ALL NEW material you will not find anywhere else. And you can only get 808 Warfare directly from Producers Choice.

Huge, EPIC 808 basses that 'rattle the walls'

These are simply the most usable 808's on the market. Try 808 Warfare and tell us we're lying!
