a kick as a bass?
As we all know, the Roland TR-808 drum machine has played an important role in the development of electronic music. However, as Daedalus points out, the actual kick drum sound of the TR-808 sounds nothing like what it's come to represent in our collective conscious. Over the course of music history, the sound was sampled, processed, & resampled countless times to create the subby thud we've come to associate with electronic kicks. The percussive sounds of the 808 are still beloved & well used but today's production has seen a version of the processed drum become popular as both kick & bass for tracks.
