ignore the named branding, try it out at least and see what i mean, also hint - have th e velocity hit at around 50 for it's notes or it will start to add clipping to the kicks and be over loud.
As i just found out, there is now Kick 2, (non nicky romero name but V2 of this amazing kick synth)

Funny you mention that. I've been considering it for a while now but, like you say, the branding just fucked it right off for me. I think I'll seriously consider it as my next plugin purchase. I used to be highly against things like this, again branding, but over the last year I've really made an effort to break through that bull shit and just realize if is serves the music, it serves the music.
