One thing that would help us help you a lot better is you posting your kick+bass mix, and the kick and bass separately. That way we can solve the issue and tell you how we did it and what you probably were doing wrong. Otherwise we are stuck around a thousand possibilities of who knows what is your problem. I suggest you to do this so we can give you a more ...

Try clean 909(first)/808(second) Kicks and tune them to around 45 Hz. Then use gates reverb if you want but really be careful with the amount ant eq setting on the reverb channel. Also fine-tune the pre delay a good amount of time. Then something that i think he used is parallel compression with some distortion. This can help you make the reverb tail rumble....

The overall sound of a kick drum is made up of a number of different spectral components. While there are significant components in the 200Hz range, which accounts for the 'punchiness' of a kick sound, there are also significant spectral components in the higher part of the spectrum, which account for the 'click'. With a standard single-band compressor, the ...

If I understand correcly, you have a sample with an instrument sound, that you want to resample to a different (lower) pitch, while maintaining the playback speed and overall duration of the sample. The operation you need is a frequency shift and you can find it (under that name or some variation of it) in most digital audio workstations or audio editing ...

A trigger to midi converter is a fairly complex piece of kit so yes, it is expensive. It really isn't a simple ask. A much cheaper alternative is to use something like this - using KTdrum trigger, which lets incoming audio be turned into MIDI messages in Ableton Live. aside from getting hold of the cheap piezo mics, this is all in software.

Well, the first reading when you make a kick rumble is to just add some reverb to the low end of the kick.. now the tricky part is that there are so many ways to do it and so many outcomes in the end. The kick I'm listening to in this track you're posting, is definately a reverberated Kick Drum. There are many ways to add reverb to a kick, someone could ...

I am using sidechain+spectral analayzer for mixing bass and kick. It will work great when your bass ducking on the specific eq range. you may check this video for more information.

The answer is not as easy as you hope! The Idea behind those huge Electro sounds is layering + distortion + short reverbs and other stereo enhancer. Typicaly you build a solid bass layer + midrange bass or saw bass + supersaw sounds (chords) + vibrato lead (melody). The spooky lead sound that plays the melody in the benassi song might be a supersaw ...

certainly 909ish. the rest of the drums are certainly 909/808 inspired and Disclosure's production in general is highly influenced by the classic 90s house/2-step sound. the kick and snare sound tape saturated to me. also sounds like the whole track is 2bussed through an SSL Comp.
