    I am looking for a kickdrum synth. I know there is KICK by Sonic Academy, but its just to to much and to complicated for simple sounds.

    Something similar to the Fruity Kick would be awosme.
    I want to make such Zap Kicks, Laser Kicks, Kick blips, psytrancy kicks - thats why i need no layers and stuff.

    Would a Korg MS-20 be out of the question?

    They probably didn't mean "complicated" as in "difficult to use"; for instance, think about how often you use all or most of the features a VST has to offer, when you only need to make simple sounds that don't really require said features. They're just sitting there doing nothing.

    complicated - i mean i dont need 3 layers or something, i need a simple sine wave with pitch env, and KICK just has to much features, its not simple enough for what i want, also i wrote a reference down with Fruity Kick.

    and trust me, i know how to make stuff in KICK2.

    yes i agree with @kh_minusone

    actual no, its a good idea.

    i tried to make such stuff with sylenth1, but well it was way to hard to adjust the ADSR of the Pitch env, so i gave up after an hour.

    yeah fruity kick, was quite good, might have to reinstall some older version of FL, 3.5.6 actual works on windows 10, just hope 20H2 has not broken it.

    Sylenth1 presets, good point, worth a try too again.

    im astonished how less you can find on kvraudio if you search for kickdrum synth (even less) and kickdrum generator.

    If you do try looking for FLStudio 20.7.2 it was the last patched version works on Windows 10 fine.

    I personally like Big Kick, it also has some ways to tune, shape and refine your kick especially when you need some zapping kicks, and you also could use a sample for the "tok" of the kick, if you know what I mean. But this is optional.
    I'd say, give Big Kick a try.

    Is NI's TRK-01 out of scope? There's a kick-only version of it floating about.
