This is one of my hardstyle kicks. Tweaked out of a single emulated (drumazon) 909 kickdrum with long decay. Hardstyle kicks are really complex to make and I really don't want to give much stuff away since each kick I make requires so much effort and work. It's basicly just 1 hard kick sample with long decay, you EQ and distort it a million times carefully until you get it just right. For this kick I used Cubase's Studio EQ as EQ, Camelcrusher and Camelphat3 for distortion and D16 Toraverb for a slight reverb to get more drive in it.

To pitch it in as example Cubase you just edit the audio, choose the tail (not the punch) and use the pitch shift tool. The rootnote is G2.

The stereo image is wide on purpose, use a stereo imager plugin to get this kick in control, hardstyle kicks should be in mono.

This is an edited version of my other kick I uploaded here, different punch and different filter/amp env on the bass's tail to get this reversed bassline effect.
