    not a fruity user but
    try turnig the low gain on your kicks up inbetween 119hz and 166 hz
    should give a nice thump to your beats
    also i like to run several eqs on mi snares boosting high freq in several diffrent spots with the diff eqs

    thanks mate. Prob i'm getting is. When i boost up a kick it starts to peak into the red. How can i get it phat without peaking? I dont know much about compression settings either

    i generally compress with high attack and low release
    at a ratio of about 16:1
    you can also use limiter to keep em out of the red
    alot of the times mi drums go into the red but just a bit so as long as it doesnt sound distorted i dont worry to much about it -know its better to have em all i nthe green but oh well-been werkin out good so far

    warbeats has 2 tutorials on youtube mate. one thats 25 mins long, and another thats less. the shorter one explains alot mate. not sure if you have watched it.

    search ' warbeats eq ' in youtube. he explains how to find the sweet spot on a bass and keeo it in its own frequency so that it doesnt get mixed up with other instruments.
