I think that those kicks are better but they kind of
get lost in the mix. Needs more mids “beater” sound
to make it pop out.
One of my favorite kicks can be heard in John Askew’s
song, “Chime.” The kick is awesome. Look at it in
a waveform view in a track, it has a good look to it.
It has the punchy click at the beginning and then drops
in volume to swell to the low end. The swell is also roughly
in time, so it swells with the music.
