Description

Looking for memorable Bass Drum samples you actually want to use? Let me give you catchy Kicks that stick out, stay in your listener’s ear and make your entire production highly recognizable!

My goal was to close the gap between the well-known and average digital-sub-with-click-on-top Kicks and those perfect Bass Drums you find in songs on your favorite Spotify playlist.

I went on this quest to create unique 3-dimensional Kicks from scratch by combining electronic drum sounds with flavorful natural colors and outstanding elements extracted from live-recordings.

As a result you get 140 distinctive Hybrid Kicks full of character and personality. Ready to cut through the noise!

A First Taste

Kicks In Action – Part II

Maybe I went a little overboard with all the demos on this page but I wanted to make sure you can listen to the majority of the Bass Drums in order to find out if the Kicks in the pack match the taste and style of your productions and beats.
The demo tracks are bounced without any masterbus processing (no EQ, compressor or limiter). While the synth loops and the instrumental backings are not part of this pack, all the sounds you hear are taken from different Preset & Wavetable Packs for Serum and are available here at Sparkpackers.

Mission

I recorded quite a few drum sets and percussive instruments over the years and had GB’s of authentic and organic flavors at my disposal. I started with extracting original sounding transients, tasty overheads and stomps, rich drum-room ambiences and spills, and spicy thuds, smacks and slams.

Those exciting natural colors of real live elements screamed ‘Combine me with electronic samples!’
A borrowed 808, a recently snatched 909 from ebay and digitally generated sub waveforms provided a solid fundament for those bass drums.

I wanted to make sure you’ll find charismatic Kicks that are full of destinctive – sometimes weird and uncommon – elements. Kicks that reliably transport energy and punch, whether it be in clubs, your car, on headphones or on mobile devices.

A perfectly shaped low end combined with extraordinary ingredients that make every singular Kick highly recognizable. That’s what I call a Delicious Kick!

Production Notes

Key Labels _(A)

In cases the sub bass element got generated digitally, quoting the tune of the Kick was easy and accurate, of course.

In other cases, I used my ears (and a frequency analyzer) to determine the sub frequency and key of the sub.

There might be cases where the sub-tail shifted and moved so fast through adjacent frequencies that it might not be technically correct to even state a key but I did it anyway because I wanted to provide you at least a ballpark estimate.

Maybe it's just me but in 8 out of 10 cases I don't even look at existing key tags. This might be a genre thing.
But in general, if a Kick fits the style of the song and it sounds good, I try to not get sidetracked by paying too much attention to any key labeling at all. I won't remove a subjectively perceived great matching Kick just because the key label someone put on a Kick doesn't correspond to the tune of the track.
Listen to your gut. Trust your ears!

Grouped Kicks _var_1_var_2

In this sample library you'll find Kicks that are grouped together.
Kick_22_var_1_(F#) and Kick_22_var_2_(G), for example.
Although those Kicks might sound quite different, they share one or multiple elements.
Or they might have built upon each other.
_var_1 might be a more subtle version of _var_2.
Or _var_3 might have an additional element and another minor piece might have been taken away.
I wanted to make sure you can easily find Kicks that are in the same ballpark.

Pre-shifted Kicks _pre_3_ms (<5ms)

If you cut bass drums by eye too close to where the supposedly 'initial main action' is, you might cut away an important ('clicky') presence-part of the entire sound.
You want to leave the
‘main bass drum action’ at the bar’s starting point. The pre-presence-click-sound happens slightly before the main event. Just bring the whole sample forward.

Pre-shifted Kicks _pre_20_ms (>10ms)

Another reason why I pre-shifted some Kicks is that a few were layered with live-recording elements that had some kind of an interesting 'swoosh-in' effect.

In both cases just drag the Kick track the 'ms-amount' to the left or tell your DAW or (Software) Sampler to pre-shift/ bring the sample or audio/midi track forward.
