Can You Kick It?
Another option that is definitely much quicker and easier is to use sample libraries. These offer the advantage of having instant access to many different kick drums and there are a lot of these commercially available, covering virtually every club music genre. The downside of using these sample libraries is that you will end up using sounds that a lot of other people are using as well. One thing that I have done in the past is to combine different kick drum samples in different ways to create my own kick drums through creative sampling rather than synthesis. Unfortunately, this approach can be time consuming as well. So is there another option?
