    The two frequencies phase each other out somewhat why would you ever want to do this?

    It doesn’t even sound that impressive. There are better ways of fattening up kick drums.

    Its chords, not cords.

    The kick drum sounds impressive enough for me… Thanks for sharing!

    Same here, I found this video to be useful. I made some cool, minimal sounding kicks with it. Thanks!

    Actually thought it was an impressively done tutorial. I’ve always made kicks by ear – but this makes me want to experiment with oscillators tuned to specific intervals.

    Nice find and thanks for sharing this.
