Tuning of the kick is very important to the musicality of the song and pleasing sonics.
Amen. Thank god for my F-16 in the mixing stage. A cheat around is to key gated a tone generator at the key of the song and add it into the track. One of the techniques I use time to time is tight gating a mult of original kick and focus on the "1K-7K" just for the beater (or the attack that translates great on Auratones and NS-10s, and prison radio, and hold music when you call Musician's Friend, etc...) then add in a tone generator at the key of the song to taste. This way your kick translates well from top to low end. A frequency to hertz chart comes in handy for this stuff.
