The basic idea of a kick drum is that a drum sound is created that, in some way, resembles the sound of a drum. The kick drum is used to send the beat to the rest of the song. It has been around since drum machines were first created. I use it in my DJ sets as well as for performing live. The beat is a good idea in theory, but we have to figure out what kind of sound we want, as well as the time, volume, and pitch. For the pitch, I use the high, low, and middle keys on the keyboard to determine how high or low the sound is. For example, the sound of a kick drum is high. If we want a low sound, we would use the lowest key, and for a high sound, we would use the highest key.

It's an all-in-one drum set that sounds amazing and is super easy to use. I think the ones that are just drum samples are $4.99, but there are plenty of free/cheap packs available if you're willing to hunt them down.
Also, if you want something more complex, check out http://www.microrock.com/products/rock-n-roll-cr-mech-vibes-vibass-toy-vibalibre.html which is basically the same as a Rickenbacker, but with a more robust build quality and fancier finish.
If you are on a budget, you can get a great drum library free at DrumKits.com . They have several free libraries to choose from. They also have a free teardown and head-tweaking section as well as free sound demos.
Budget is a big issue, and I recommend paying for quality plugins. If you are looking for a free sound library, try the DrumKits.com library. It has a lot of high quality libraries that are free to use. You can also go to Keith Metalshort.com and download his free sound packs for his Hush and SoundStow plugins. He is also on my podcasts and he has a lot of great plugins on his website.
