I'm looking to create a deep rumbly kick drum like in these tracks:
I love these tight reverb kicks, that when the highpass lets off, the rumble is awesome.
I get the impression that this kick drum may be layered with a ton of compression and a send reverb, but every time I try I can't get anything close to it. Most other kicks in dance music I can get very close to... These I'm stumped!
I've tried: pitching down percussion and adding a "top kick" on top with EQ and Compression and sending to reverb.... Every time I end up with something really muddy.
Please help! This is exactly the style I'm leaning towards, and have always loved. Any other tips on creating clean bass heavy music like this would be much appreciated.
