    Hello Petri!

    I have been reading from your site for a couple of months now, looking up tutorials and tricks. This is the first comment I’ve left on the site. How To Make Electronic Music is single-handedly the greatest site for electronic music tuts. I also love that you recommend VST synth & effects plugins, and hunt down all these free (royalty free) samples for us.

    I am mainly producing both Regular and Electro House music, and 3xOsc is usually my leading synth. Are there any plugins or effects you recommend (preferably free) to do House bass, chord stabs, or leads? (I have seen your tutorials on all three of those things, just wanting to expand beyond that to learn even more :D)

    It is a great help to everyone, especially people like me who are getting into the industry. Your site has been a great source of information! Keep up the awesome work and thanks for all the help you offer on HTMEM.com!

    P.S. Where do you find all these plugins, effects and samples? Do you happen to use VSTwarehouse.com? I heard it’s pretty rad, but I’ve never used anything except FL Studio synths lol.

  6. ,,good quality kick drums´´

    everyone can say that, some infos would be great what kind of gear were used and so on…

  7. if there are no infos about the sample source its to risky to use them

    • I need to ask from Markus as I’m not sure what kind of gear he used to create these.

    • No risk at all.
      Count how many ppl made 808-909-303 banks and sell them…they don’t pay a single dime to Roland if they don’t use their product’s name in their own product’s name.
      Even drum loops are over-used on countless records…not a single person paid back as far as i know.

      With melodies or full parts, it is another story…

      Vengeance started making money with kicks riped from other artists records…we all know he is not in jail 😉

  8. Hi guys,

    Thanks for the feedback. The kicks are made on scratch. And when I am saying that they are made on scratch, I mean they are synthesized. Simple sine wave, which is pitched to some key. Like G-note is 49hz, A-note is 55 hz, and so on. Everyone can do it. Example, take a look at infected mushroom kick drum tutorial. That shows you how to make a kick, or at least body for it. Then they are layered to other sounds, like noise, hihats and percussions – what ever sounds good. Usually, your mind should tell you what the kick / sound needs!

    And the last, there is huge amount of FX prosessing, testing, tuning, testing, tuning and even more trial and error. Usually, after 30-60min of tuning and testing, you have a one kick. Sometimes it takes longer, sometimes not. Some things, like FX’s prosessing, I want keep in secret, as it took a long time to learn it. You know.

    And about my gear? Well, do I have it? I mean, I just have fast pc, with crappy m-audio keystation 49, saffire LE soundcard and couple of headphones. That’s it. I don’t even own monitors 😛 Of course, the FL Studio is heart of my “studio”. But, what I need to say? I don’t have any gear!! If you want, you can donate some money to me, so I can buy more gear, like monitors 😀

    But seriously, my kicks are made fully on software based processing, and there is nothing special or “risky” about them. If you like my kicks, feel free to use them. They are totally royalty free and you can use them much as you want. If you don’t like them, no one doesn’t force you to use them 😉

    Sorry for my bad english!

    • Thanks for the clarification, Markus!

    • Markus. Wow, u sound so professional. I can’t imagine someone using just those few items u mentioned to do a lot. I bookmarked ur page. I’m challenge. I will be learning a lot from u. But I use logic pro 9. How can u assist me wit advice on my synths and Fx? Its a great software but I’m short of synths and FX for house mix and dance. Thanks I wait for ur Reply

    • Big thanks for the awesome kicks!
      But I think many people have the same problem here. How do you play any of your samples on FLstudio? When I drag your sample to sequencer/sampler there is no graphical wave displayed or sound heard…

    • I managed to download the files and they play just fine when I preview the kicks in Quicktime player…but when I try to load them into my DAW (Reason), it says the files are unsupported. This seems to be happening to a lot of people. Can somebody please shed some light, it would such a shame to let these kicks go to waste!!!

  9. Thanks a lot man!

  17. Very cool of you to do this, I needed these very badly

  18. Hey Petri!! Thanks a lot for this website, I’m about to get on the music production and this is really helpful.

    The point of this comment is that I cant use the kicks, I’ve downloaded it, extracted it and played it on the windows media player and its all right trough this point. But when I try to use any of them on a project, the kick doesn’t make sound at all, this happens with everyone of them. Help please! I want to use some of this great stuff


  19. Thank you Petri!

  20. Sounds goos, thanks!
