When you pitch your kick. Should the note in the melody that hits be the same as the key of the kick? Like when my kick pitches up it is in A key. So do I make sure the melody at that time is in A?
You generally want to keep your kick and melody in the same key, as a rule of thumb. You can deviate from the scale if you feel comfortable, but it is harder to make it sound good. You don't necessarily want the note that the melody hits to be the same note as the kick, because you won't create harmony this way. If you make a melody with a baseline under it, use the baseline to guide you when pitching your kicks. By having two different notes played by the kick and the melody, you create a chord. As another rule of thumb, you generally want to start on your tonic (A in an a minor scale, c in a C minor scale etc. ) for your kick, and you usually want to start on the tonic for the melody as well. You can then build your kick/melody pattern around chords. I don't know if this is clear. If you want a specific example, I could elaborate more. Hope this helps
