How to Sample Kick Drums like a Pro

Hey Guys,

in this video I’m explaining how to properly sample a kick drum from any Track. This technique will allow you to sample clean Kicks even when there is more stuff then just the kick playing. enjoy


  • find the cleanest and most isolated kick sample you can find in the whole song
  • make sure the kick has all the sub etc if you sample from intro or outro
  • cut out all the parts you do not need
  • create a duplicate of the sample
  • invert the phase (for example with ableton’s utility plugin)
  • isolate the sound that you want to cut by croping and use a linear phase eq
  • record the clean kick
  • this technique uses phase cancelation to clean out the parts you don’t need
