Tips & Techniques:Kenny's - Fatten Up Kick Drum
To fatten up a kick drum without adding EQ:
Use the signal generator to make either a 52Hz or 60Hz sine wave at about -6dB on an audio track.
Send the kick out to a buss prefader at 0dB.
Now put a gate on the Sine wave and have it be keyed by the buss.
Set the settings so that the tone peaks thru as tight as needed.
Just mix to taste.

Great tip, I use something like this a lot!
Another point, you can adjust the frequency for the key of the song, I use Music Math for OS X to find the frequency of the key.
You can also use this on toms, to give some more bottom and resonance, again tune the sine wave to be correct for the tom and the tune.
