Load up an instance of Logic’s EXS and use the default sine wave as a starting point to make your kick.
Alternatively, if you don’t use Logic, use a sine wave sampled into your DAW’s sampler, or use a soft synth set to a single sine wave. Then add a punchy envelope setting with quick decay/release short sustain and snappy attack. Listen carefully to the original and try tuning the pitch of the kick to it. it’s very important to get the pitch of your drums close to the original to get the right vibe.
We’ve detuned the sine slightly and used a 12dB filter. We’ve also added a compressor to even out the kick and help it cut through the track so it can be heard on smaller speakers. Use a low ratio with fast attack and slow release. Compensate for any gain drop caused by the compressor circuit with the gain slider.
