"I created these samples specifically for people to use in the context of dnb + halftime bass music. I based all of them on the kinds of characteristics I look for when creating a kick for any of my tunes. I ideally want stuff to be punchy and hard hitting, but sometimes I layer really weird longer tails into my kicks to make them a more feature piece of the track. Many of the samples are synthesised using sine waves, passed through vocoders, phase distorted or otherwise transformed. I'm hoping that they'll provide both a quick and easy source of strong kick sounds as well as be a source of inspiration."
"We spent some time trying out different samples and played with all of the options that Kickforge included. You can get a lot of wildly different sounds just with a few simple clicks! We hope these presets help push some boundaries for various genres!"
"These presets are a range of alternative kicks that can be used to build a track around or supplement an existing mix. I find myself most interested in superhuman kick drums that can live in an industrial metal song, an electronic production or a standard active rock jam. I like presets to be inspiring so I think you’ll find each of these has a unique flavor to them that sets them apart from each other or from a traditional kick drum. Often a kick drum can be the first element I build a production around so my focus with these presets was to build inspiring sources to do exactly that!"
"These samples will certainly get users up and running quickly with a great kick sound you can go on with or tweak to your heart's desire!"
