@ Phazon:
Both kicks sounds fine! Start making your own tracks! :)

@ Raven:
Pretty cool kick. Sounds very heavy yet it pitches okay. Somehow i feel like this was just overdistorted a little or too much high end was distorted too early in the kick chain (i usually get that too).

@ djspeed87:
Finish that track! Sounds badass! Reference your kick more with other can use a little more volume in the mid end. Other than that it sounds great, i like it!

Yeah so its been quite a while since i posted something myself... i finally got some time to work on stuff again. Improved an old kick of mine (added another layer), improved the attack (which was too weak before imo).
What do you think? (I just slapped the lead and vocals under there so you have something to listen to... not really sure if i want to make this into a track). It has a slight Zatox feel to it, i think...


Oh, and merry xmas everyone! (H)

The RaveN:@Soundphase

I think the punch could use more crunch so it doesn't sound like a clean waveform being pitched down.

Here's a little kick I continued to work on.

Pitched with kontakt 5 (ain't nobody got no time for pitching kicks for real). The second bar is (G) which is the root of the kick = no pitch for that note.

This is super!! I really like this.
Can't go past those Alan Watts samples.

I'm not sure if you get the true picture of my kick when it is played through soundclouds quality. I think it gets a little extra distortion when it's played there.

Djspeed87: You have two kicks on this page and they are both really great, how do you pitch them?
Nesspj: im not if it the pitching or what it is. I would like to hear some "end" to the kick. Now it almost sound like the kick is to long. Otherwise its pretty nice.

This is a new kick for me. Im really trying to get that low rumble to it. Hard to explain and even harder to make haha.

@djspeed87: I always like that boing sound, nice kick!
@SourceOfDistortion: nice kick, I prefer a bit longer tail, but overall pretty awesome!
My recent kick test, haven't pitched it yet, will try today

I think I should remove high-freq noise from it
Plugins used: Drumazon, Ohmicide, Venm, and standard FL plugins - eqs, compressors etc.

Edit: quick pitch test
Pretender: wow, you're so full of shit, that even my toilet refuses to flush you.

@djspeed87 I really like your kick designs. This sounds pro (I can't hear any errors)
@SourceOfDistortion really nice punch in it, tail is good but maybe could get some more loudness/distortion. Oh I have a trick for the low rumble - try use a phase plugin on the punch part and adjust the phase degrees, experiment with FIR/IIR modes, and width. Sonitus phase is what I use. Some phase distortion and compression after resampling can work as well.

I tried resampling before finishing my new kick but I don't know what I'm doing really, just experimenting..

It's better to fail in originality than succeed in imitation
