An EDM producer knows that the kick drum can make or break his or her track. Finding the right kick drum sample that fits perfectly in the mix can be difficult and time consuming. We’ve all been in a situation of going through hundreds of samples, test-fitting and processing them for hours or days, only to end up disappointed. Here is the course that will teach you how to synthesize your own amazing kick drums that will fit perfectly in the mix. I’ll walk you through designing your own kick drum.

I’ll then take you through all the effects and plugins to use to tweak your kick drum sounds.
