Underpin impact hits
If you’re creating a huge cinematic ‘hit point’ sound, it’s worth underpinning your brighter, angrier, more metallic sounds with deep dark hits. Combinations of low-pitched drum sounds, treated with similarly dark, long reverbs can be hugely effective. Try blending a deep Taiko sample with an orchestral bass drum, an 808 kick and possibly a low tom as well. Spend some time finessing velocities (often quieter ones work better than the loud ones) to help set the relative volume balance of these sounds, then some EQ before reverb. Try this sound under your brighter hits and they’ll pack much more punch.
