    What do I need to do to get this kick drum sound?

    I've been using Ableton Live for three years and have tried numerous VST's but this kick drum has eluded me the whole time. I know I could sample the sound and add it to Drum Rack but I would like the pure sound not just a sample.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    What a pleasant song, with such a lovely sentiment! A sort of "Season's Greetings" kind of tune...

    What you might try is layering a standard electronic kick with a synth tom sound, or some kind of keyed synth tone. Maybe you could use an envelope-follower.

    I used to get a kick drum like that on my Mattel Synsonics drum-machine.

    Sounds like a typical 1990's "harder" eurodance or cheesy Happy Hardcore kick to me

    If you don't find the kick you're looking for out of the thousands in the following kit, there is not hope for you ;-)


    I've took the time to upload this find for you and I know there's some of the kicks you want in there, if not hundreds.
