(a few questions.. :blush)
so you synthesize your kicks and just have them running on a separate channel of their own?
isnt this more of a load on the CPU (than samples) or is it negligible because the synth isnt doing much anyway?
even if you synthesize your own kicks is it better to keep them as live synths instead of rendering and sampling them?

thanks guys! there is so much information on this forum, thank you for sharing your experience everyone!

You can synthesize your own kicks and then bounce them to audio if you are worried about CPU load.

I always have my kick running on its own channel whether it is a sampled kick or one I created in a synth this is for eq'ing purposes.

If you render your kick at a decent sample rate then it's ok to sample it. But keeping it a synth allows you to change it without the added hassle of then having to sample the new version again.

one word: bassizm haha :roll (it does the trick for me) there are off course other solutions, but i really recommend creating them on your own, that way you can put your own input in it & bring the things you like.. :roll
and yeah it goes for mac aswell for windows. i have it on windows & friend of me has it on mac and it works perfectly on both.

At Ocajian: yeah i also prefer it to be in midi & own channel, i never had trouble so far about cpu % (using Ableton Live) and i practicly use everyting in midi but that just my opinion & my way of going hehe :crazyfly Ableton Live has some übercool functions for saving cpu %, using these things does the trick, rather then switching everything to audio & what not..
peace!!

Strange that no one mentioned layering, so powerfull.. Widely used not only in music production, but sound design..

double true! It's especially blatant (and awesome D: ) in the DnB and dubstep genres, but it's just as useful everywhere else!

100% A+

sadly no one mentioned this for three sites. imo bazzism is cool but lacks low end. if i go for setting it up for brrrrtttzztt kick for 176bpm, 6k click i.e. 37-43hz low you can give it space you want. it lacks bottom in lows always and will sound fat wit nice click n nice sweep deep down to bottom of low mids, but not in the lows.

for getting the kick like you got in mind, one should go for layers if you´re not able to synthesize it from scratch.
