    Any good examples? I'm trying to finish up my bands EP but all the slate kicks have way too much of a click high end. I'm looking for something with a softer high end that punches through the mix.


    example

    Or you can just eq the kick track to taste.

    just notch out a spot where the click is most pronounced. Check anywhere from 3.5 - 5k, sweep it with an EQ, find where it really jumps out and then pull it down.

    Having a source that already sounds like what you're going for and slight EQ will sound WAY better than me EQ'ing it to make it something it isn't.

    Not good enough. The only samples I have are Slate, and all of the high end spectrum is hyped. I tried LPing it, and it just sounds weird.

    greenkick from trigger platinum sounds rather similar to the sample you posted, and there are some LSD drums samples I think would fit too

    Don't know if it'll be exactly what you're going for, but sometimes I like to start with a really clicky kick, then compress gently with a really fast attack. It softens up the "click" while still retaining the EQ to cut through the mix.

    This is usually what I do, but there's still a slap-y attack that's leftover. If you listen to the kick I posted, there's almost 0 click to it, yet it still comes through the mix very very well. That's what I'm trying to achieve. Arv I only have EX not Platinum.

    Ok you just kinda contradicted your own statement there :lol:

    making a notch in something would still qualify as "slight EQ" wouldn't it?

    and maybe try a high shelf instead of a low pass?

    Did I? lol I don't see it. Anyways, tried that too, just sounds like an EQ muffled kick as opposed to a punch one :erk:
