Seb of wrote in to share the news of a free online kick drum generator.

Joining a host of educational music theory tools, the online tool allows you to generate free synthesized kick drum/bass drum sounds, and download them for use in your projects.

Just tweak the parameters for the tuning, pitch decay, attack, release, distortion and bit crushing, gain and compression until you get a bass drum sound that hits just right.

Click on the download button at any time to download a WAV file for that kick drum sound and use it in your favorite DAW right away. You can tweak the sample rate and bits per sample (16 or 32 bits) for the generated kick drum samples.
