Over the last few years it has become clear how loved the Cableguys Halftime VST plugin is in the music producer community. A lot of people associate this Gross Beat alternative with making trap beats but it is more versatile than that. Do not put this amazing effect plugin in a box! It can be used in any genre including EDM, dubstep, lofi, boom bap and even country music.
How Did Cableguys Halftime VST Become Popular?
We are not exactly sure when Cableguys Halftime plugin started becoming the go-to industry effect but we think it definitely had something to do with the rise of making trap beats and using free sample packs and loop kits. There is something about when you put the half-speed setting on a melody or loop. Most of the time it just makes it sound more lit or gives you variety without adding an actual counter-melody.
Another reason it probably became so popular was the fact that most producers think you can only use Gross Beat with FL Studio. While that is actually not true, the Halftime VST is still a much cheaper option at $12 compared to Gross Beat which costs $99 if you buy it on its own.
