    Read this:

    'Kick Drum
    Any apparent muddiness can be rolled off around 300Hz. Try a small boost around 5-7kHz to add some high end.
    50-100Hz ~ Adds bottom to the sound
    100-250Hz ~ Adds roundness
    250-800Hz ~ Muddiness Area
    5-8kHz ~ Adds high end prescence
    8-12kHz ~ Adds Hiss


    Bass
    Try boosting around 60Hz to add more body. Any apparent muddiness can be rolled off around 300Hz.If more presence is needed, boost around 6kHz.
    50-100Hz ~ Adds bottom end
    100-250Hz ~ Adds roundness
    250-800Hz ~ Muddiness Area
    800-1kHz ~ Adds beef to small speakers
    1-6kHz ~ Adds presence
    6-8kHz ~ Adds high-end presence
    8-12kHz ~ Adds hiss'



    As always, use as a guide. No two kick drums are the same, diffrent EQ will be needed almost evrey time!


    Good Luck
    Don't even think about checking out these free drum samples unless you are an ELITE producer!
