Urban Puncher Key Features

How it works

Urban Puncher is an effect that gives a "punch" to your percussive material (drums, percussion). Intended for drum loops but works instantly on anything that you can call drum hit. Your loops will step out of the shadows immediately. Urban Puncher delivers a stronger and more solid feel in no time.

Hip-hop and more...

Hip-hop, trap, r'n'b, nusoul, breakbeat, grime... you name it. UrbanPuncher will enhance any electronic style rhythm tracks immediately. Make the beats stronger and punchier within a second.

How to use it?

Urban Puncher is a definitive drum improving tool for any urban music producer. It doesn't matter much if you can put it on your drum channel after or before your EQ or comp. Simply dial how strong the punch your tracks get should be and mix it with the original sound and let Urban Puncher do its magic.


What is a "Punch"? There's not a simple answer to that. The punch knob controls several processes at the same time. It can be described as an esoteric dynamic process with transients treatment and spectral shaping.


Analogue-like transformer/tube blended emulation of saturation gives the punch a completely different feel. Use it gently to make your track blend in easily or dial the Saturation knob all the way up to get the real street sounds.


And you can even punish your drum loops with the Destroy button. Hitting that triples the values you dial with the saturation knob. That results in a heavier form of distortion.


Although the primary UrbanPuncher intention is for drum loops it is not where you should stop. The plugin can give extra punch to other instruments such as acoustic guitar or piano. Don't be afraid to experiment.

It does punch, that’s for sure :) It lifts the drums quite a lot in the mix.

I love what it does to distorted bass actually, it brings out the character of dull distortion. It's a nice plugin and I liked setting it to mild settings to drive pristine sounding kits a bit.

Urban Punch is a winning ticket to power, fullness and clarity for tracks where the bass needs an extra boost.

What a sound! And just by twisting those few knobs.. in a matter of seconds. Urban Puncher finds the attitude inside a track and brings it up front, without being a one-trick pony.

UrbanPuncher is a really great "life injector" for sampled and live drums. It's a bit like giving the drummer a red bull... :)))

Urban Puncher gives me all the attitude I need when I'm looking to deliver an in-your-face 808. The ease of use is incredible, you can add tone and grit to any sound in a matter of seconds.

Though United Plugins says it’s for drum loops, I found it useful on bass, strings, electric guitar, and other tracks. It’s also good for adding a touch of high-end energy when added to a buss or master.
