Remember, there are all sorts of creative things you can do through the use of gates that don't technically fall into the categories you mentioned of synthesizing versus sample selection versus layering. I know your point, you are good enough that it doesnt, that you know what everything in the program those so all youo need is the text and the value and youll program anything. Kick 2 is a far more flexible animal, based on a much cleaner synth engine that exhibits less aliasing distortion - basically, generating a purer sound than that of the previous Kick synth. Sure they can tune their drums or maybe throw a towel in the kick, but the basic sound is the same. Your article is talking about straight up plagiarism.
Don't get me wrong, the Rob Papen one looks powerful buts its interface is really cluttered and shit. I just don't get it. Sure, loops are amazing as source material, and they absolutely have their place in the production world, but if all someone is doing is arranging and rearranging pre-made loops, they are displaying no musicianship whatsoever, and no analogy in the world is going to change that. Massimo, March 25, 2018 Patched. You can make music by beating on a stick in time with the rain on your roof. Obviously I'm exaggerating a bit here, but you get the point. For a track with a lot of different stuff happening across a lot of different frequencies, it can be easier to synthesize the kick so it fits exactly where I want it in the mix.
If you're using Albeton, going through the hassle of setting up something like can really speed up the process of finding the right samples without losing creative momentum in production. With the minimalist stuff I just have no idea at first and I honestly dont like any 'minimalist' vst out there. That vengeance loop is, like most, taken from existing songs. Two extremely different philosophies and intended applications. Like I said, it was watching the vid that made me appreciate Kick's simplicity.
For me it means dont get caught up in the fine details, just make music. I often find that it's more work to meld two unwieldy samples together then to make my own. I have quite a few probably too many already, but I'd love to hear where it excels and where it stands to improve. Wasn't a big fan of the drum sounds featured, but I'm sure it's capable of a lot more. Try in Max for Live. I feel like this type of design really helps me grasp new programs so much faster.
You're absolutely right though, him suggesting that this would replace Kick is hyperbolic. A lot of guys do a similar thing with white noise behind a gate triggered by their snares to give them that extra crack. On the other hand, if I'm working with a sparser track that needs a way more organic drum sound, I'll start with a sample. Perhaps most importantly, though, they all sound fantastic. Screens are inherently uninspiring for many people and I feel that I want to get in and get out as quick as possible in the sense that I want to do everything fast and clearly.
The internal effects are a bit of a let-down, but there aren't many dedicated kick drum synthesizers that come close to this level of sophistication and tweakability. Maybe there are kids out there overusing it because they see it's from Dada Life and think it'll make them instantly turn into Skrillex, but don't write it off because of that, it has practical uses and it does what it does decently well, it's just a nice quick way to beef some shit up.

Thks Eduardo, March 21, 2018 Thank u very much Daniel, February 05, 2018 muito obrigado pela crack Samantha, December 04, 2017 salamat sa inyo para sa patch Charlie, March 19, 2017 Merci beaucoup! Also, I've seen some producers Sam Binga comes to mind layering kicks to get really massive kicks. Watch some of the Sonic Academy vids. If you have software or keygens to share, feel free to submit it to us here.
Glad to hear that it's got you so enthusiastic! It's a gradient of taking credit. As for seeing it in use, just search it on youtube and you can get a good idea of how it works and hear some examples. People who are already using Nicky Romero's Kick will probably keep using it, because they're familiar with it, and if they paid for it, they're already invested, and probably want to avoid incurring additional costs. It's not a completely unreasonable comparison. And if all that isn't enough, you can load in your own samples and treat them exactly like the stock ones. There is so much here you can do that I dont think you can even really compare them. Very well done --I feel like I could jump right in and enjoy this thing from the short video alone.
When you're making music, it's best for the interfaces and plugins to be easy to use. I personally have a wide range of kicks but they are either vengeance which are all kinda meh or they are kicks designed for dubstep which i'm not making right now. I did watch and enjoyed the video. Creating kicks from scratch can be a pretty superfluous task. PitchShift is a real-time pitch shifter of more subtle adjustments and radical effects. Mainly the idea is that, from a technical standpoint, as your understanding of production gets more and more fundamentally rooted, you will have the knowledge to create a kick or other sound to fit your specific needs rather than needing to borrow a preexisting kick.
It really makes me wonder if you even watched the video, there is just so much it can do, and I would honestly use it for more than just kicks more often than not. But the way they did it made it very hard to recognise the original. Take live bands for instance. They have interesting amp curves that really sculpt the sine sweep. Plus, a simple - and very useful - pitch-shifter for Max for Live. Im Perfect Pitch Our last free bit of stuff this week is a simple but very useful Max for Live effect for pitch shifting.
When a drummer in a rock band buys a drum set, they are using the same drum sounds as every other owner of that drum set. Think of all of the tracks that still use 808 kicks, etc. That said me giving this advice is kind of the blind leading the blind. Do you want a lets say hardstyle kick and you have a hardstyle sample pack then just get it from there and then modify it to how you want it. If the interface is clunky, then it'll be harder to focus on the actual music since you're too busy fumbling about with the plugin.
