Make your kick sounding louder? [Best Methods]

 Here I will talk to you about some ways to improve your skills in production!

We will be talking about LOUDER KICKS. (Suitable for beginners and if you need tips)

Your kick is one of the most important elements in a track, edm, trap, etc. Open any kick you want, switch to the tab right next to the wrench. This is where your creativity for your kick comes to play! Move that boost knob up to make it louder. The button below (Clip btn) is going to distort your kick if you have it enabled, its up to you if it's a distorted kick, like in lo-fi or want a hard kick in trap.

Here is a screenshot of the first method, its as easy as I say! 

The second method for your kick getting a good hit is the EQ, it's the most generic option but useful because of frequency control! Lower the frequency, More bass. The higher the frequency, more click or thump you get!

All you need to do for this method is, route your sound to the mixer and open the EQ. Adjust the EQ to your liking!

The last method I'll show you is, Fruity Soft Clipper. This tool is really nice for some occasions. Many use it for mastering to stay under  0db. You do not get that much control in frequency range with this tool. It's more in the lower spectrum(bass or sub level.). The post knob is what does the magic, be really careful, you may boost the kick to much! Just try it out and comment below how this plugin worked for you!
