I work in Logic 9 so I used Kontakt as the Sampler. For the sample I used a Tonal kick with a long subby tail then as well as the Attack I turned up the Sustain Decay and Release. Using the automation volume (while the kick is playing) I sculpted the sound to form a simple sine wave groovy deep tech bass.
I've recently used the opposite approach. Tinkering with ADSR on a bassline synth to give it more of a beat like feel (posted in listening booth as 'Levitation'). Haven't tried the other way around, but reading this it seems so obvious.
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
