Do you have your kick on a separate track? If so, there is this cool plugin that will trigger a midi note depending on the sound input. You could use that to trigger a synth, or your own sample as Robert Harvey says. As for transforming this sound: First thing you notice is that there is a delay in the left channel. This reduces the impact as the sound is ...

I listened to the song, and it almost sounds like the bass drum is not a bass drum at all, but more like a distorted puff of air. If I were trying to reproduce that sound from scratch, the first thing I would do is try gently blowing into a cheap microphone. I would bet you dollars to donuts that's how Radiohead created the sound originally.

This kind of thing doesn't generally come from applying effects, but from the right source sound in the first place. I would try many kinds of sounds from whatever origin you can think of. For kick sounds, once I miked myself slamming the sofa I was sitting on with my palm, sounded very organic. At some point you are bound to get a sound that you will ...

my first approach would be to take the kick (either miced or synthesized), filter out a good amount the extreme lows, the mids, and the highs, then send it through a gated reverb. the gated reverb was kind of popular in the 80s. it can be easily recreated by using a noise gate (with a sidechain input) and a compressor. an example signal flow, in beautiful ...

If you have Max4Live (included in Live9 Suite), it should be easy enough to build a Live device that does the amplitude modulation exactly the way you want. Otherwise, look for Ring Modulator and Amplitude Modulation VST plugins. The easy way to write a Ringmod plugin is to just do amplitude modulation. So the free plugins are likely to do what you want. ...

Driver type ASIO Audio device ASIO4ALL v2 Aha, there we go. ASIO is designed to give only one program at a time access to the audio hardware. As I said, this is in principle a good thing, because it ensures the DAW can run trouble-free and without overly long latency or crippled sound introduced when the OS tries to combine the audio from different ...

When you draw in a note in Live's MIDI Clip View editor, the note defaults to the current size of the grid. You can change the grid size (there's a right-click menu, as well as keyboard shortcuts, and zooming in/out if that is enabled), and you can also change the length of an existing note by grabbing the beginning or ending edge of it and dragging around ...

Go to Preferences, the click on the MIDI/Sync tab. Open up one of your MIDI ports, and you will see the MIDI Clock Sync Delay. Mess with that. If that doesn't do it, then Driver Error Compensation, under Latency in the Audio tab.
