The Tyranny of the Kick Drum
In my podcast interview with Matt Lange last week, we discussed the importance of using the correct kick drum in your productions – and how the selection process can make or break your track.
Here’s a piece I did in 2009 for Keyboard Magazine on how to set up a kick template so you always have the right sound for your goals. It also helps make the kick super-easy to finesse as you mix.
Note: This tutorial was written so you can apply it to a variety of DAWs, either via multiple tracks of Logic/Reason/Cubase - or within a single Ableton Instrument Rack - the underlying concept is the same.
