@Soundphase First version was better. Try to layer some more bass. The crunch is good but the whole kick just needs some more background power, something lower. Maybe stack a layer with lowpassed bass to it.

thanks, I took a club kick and tried putting in for the low end to give the kick more drive, I didn't like how seperate my punch sounded to the bass, changed compression on the tok now (more release and higher ratio so it slopes faster), but I think I need to layer a new sub since my sub got destroyed after saturating the tail again

@Buffelstoot solid kick, with that 'right-in-your-face' sound, very good sound design.

@Soundphase version 1: the kick needs adjustments, the punch needs some high end, and the tail seems to miss some eq-ing. The overall sound is muddy, you need to clear it up a bit. Keep a EQ on the tok and the tail and experiment with changing frequencies up and down on a narrow point.
version 2: well what happened there, man? it sounds even muddier, the tok is changed a bit but the tail doesn't sound right.

@PyroFlow I love the punch, but the tail seems to fade away compared to it, maybe boost it a bit?

Here is my new raw kick:

@xelnadu sounds alright, the space of the kick is good but the character of the bass isn't very interesting, sounds too much like a standard triangle wave

I made a different kick


another weird kick on F

Soundphase:

Good shit fam. The "weird kick" has kind of annoying stereo image with the layer that happens every other kick tho.

PyroFlow:

Needs more processing, distorting, etc. The tok sounds very "hardkick10" without the impact. The tail is also very stale and feels like it has no character. Try an emulate a modern raw kick you like the sound of, it'll put you more in the right direction.

Buffelstoot:

Sounds bretty gud with solid punch and character fallaway, but I feel the sub is too loud, and it needs more highs, especially in the tok. Keep processing and you'll have something great.

@xelnadu: Punch is good for a raw kick but the tail (bass) needs much more distortion.

@SoundPhase: Sound design is pretty good but they are just not my type of kicks. First one would be nice for an intro though.

@Phazon: Nice. Reminds me of an Audiotricz kick. I do here a annoying high frequency (some sort of crack) in the tail somewhere. Besides that very nice and professional kick! Keep it up! ;)

Here's my new kick:



I am wondering if I would add some extra crunch to the tail & maybe some highs on the punch... :?

@Phazon damn nice kick man, you got that sorted. I don't try to make these kind of kicks but I like listening :listen:
@Buffelstoot I like that kick but the pitch up sounds distinctively more clear than the lower pitch

Phazon: Can't really criticise this one too much, it's totally usable.
Buffelstoot: Really nice character, definitely needs some EQing though to brighten it up and make it punch through more - Sounds a little muddy but I'm not sure if that's because it's being drowned out by reverb. Maybe post it with a more dry lead?

It doesn't sound in tune.
The kick also needs more EQ. Try to use a professional kick as reference, it helps a lot.
