New VST, conTRAPtion Turns Any Song Into Trap

This video, via DubSpot, takes a look at conTRAPtion, a new VST that promises to turn any track into a trap hit.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

conTRAPtion is one of the most innovative VSTs to come out in recent memory, a plug-in that can take any song and convert it into trap! Created by Icelandic software company Polarfoils Industries, conTRAPtion combines elements of Southern rap music with EDM synths and sounds.

conTRAPtion opens up new directions in trap music production! This VST is guaranteed to meet the demands of today’s DJs and trapaholics everywhere.

Load any song you want and after a brief analysis conTRAPtion slows down the tempo, rolls off the low end and adds distorted 808 kicks. Then it adds syncopated hi-hats alternating between 1/8th-note and 1/16th-note patterns. The final layer is classic trap sounds like gun shots, air horns, explosions, and of course “Damn Son, Where’d You Find This?”

conTRAPtion has multiple settings. If you want a subtle track spin on it, simply apply the first setting SWAG.

If SWAG isn’t cutting it and you need to get more hard in the paint, that’s what TURNT UP is for.

The next setting, MAYBACH MUSIC, adds flair, snares, and track IDs. And when there’s no turning back and you need to turn the trap up to 11, simply apply “Damn Son, Where’d You Find This?”

conTRAPtion also has a “chopped and screwed” feature, simply flip the CHOPPED & SCREWED switch to apply the effect.

If you’ve used conTRAPtion, let us know what you think of it!

  1. Hmm, what was the current date again ?

    Even so well performed; it sounded somewhat plausible until the moment where they started ‘TRAP’ing’ rap music 😉

  2. LOL that was immense. Kudos to Dubspot, that’s the most creative thing I’ve seen all day.

    Sad thing is, if this plugin was real you’d see a million kids torrent this in a week and instantly call themselves trap producers.

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if that WAS real, in a world where my computer can be turned into a septic tank with a few select strokes. The ability of the Net to drop a truckload of crap into your basement is limited only by your vigilance. Exhausting, isn’t it? 😛

  4. I downloaded this earlier, and have been using it in conjunction with Dr.Drum.
    I’ve already won 13 Grammys and have 14,000 new friends.

  5. that was awesome, even better than those “new version of logic pro” ones that used to come out back in the day when people thought logic pro was still being developed
