The kick sets the pace and rhythm and is always the most noticeable sonic property in any particular dance music song. With this in mind, the partnership of Nicky Romero and Sonic academy set out to revolutionize the producer community with a go-to kick drum and other percussion synthesizer. KICK itself is visually appealing and allows you to see the whole process behind shaping and creating your own customized kick drum, as opposed to just turning knobs. The main window has 3 panels:

I was using kickstart, then moved to volume shaper and LFOTool. But in my last couple of tracks Ive been using the stock ableton comps. The trick is what you use to trigger it. Ill have a SC group with a couple of simplers in it on separate tracks with the audio only going to sends but not routed to anything.
Usually Im using a short closed hi hat sound as a trigger. One will have my kick pattern midi and other will have the snare pattern. When I need only to duck with the kick sound I feed the comp with the kick from the SC group. If I need to duck with the kick and snare Ill use the SC group as the trigger. Note that I set the sc to prefader in the ableton comp. This way if you adjust some track levels the SC comp is still hitting at the same amplitude.
Once I found a sound of chopsticks clicking in an illmind pack and used that as a trigger. You can use any short snappy sound actually because you control the amount of ducking with the release on the comp doing the SC duties.
So learn how to use a few different methods and switch them out if one doesnt sound right to you. The only thing they missed is to click the scope button so you can see the wav and what the envelope is actually doing to the sound youre ducking. This way you can shape the envelope properly. The thing I hate about doing it with the tools that use midi for input LFOTool, kickstart and volume shaper is that you have to have a separate midi track for each instance of the SCing plug.
Instead of one SC group to feed all the sc plugs in your project, like when I use abletons comp for this. And youll also have to make a midi track with both your kick and snare midi in too if you want to duck with both, because you can only use one midi track to trigger it.

With over factory presets and 40 exclusive Nicky Romero presets a user can access a Protocol sound right out of the box. In addition Kick. Sonic Academy has released Kick, a drum synthesizer instrument in collaboration with DJ and producer Nicky Romero. Hi, I was wondering if these are the same plugins? They’re both by Sonic Academy. If they’re not the same, which one is better for EDM?.
