There is one magic button but there are many lil buttons, switches, sliders, and faders....
The other knobs are also very important though they are having no effect at all because these aint wired...
but the user gets the feel of control and grip on life.
so one magic button yes,, but many small useless buttons for all the lost souls, too - pleeeeease!

Maybe a stupid question, but have you tried layering kicks?

That's how in most EDM they get a fat kick. Once watched an house tutorial. (point blank music school)

First 30 min or so are only about the kick drum. Some have the tail of one kick added to another kick, and so on.

Maybe layer it with a bass sound ?

it is said that this is what studio bassists did back in the days
The bassist doubles the bassdrum, that's how it was done many, many many times

Now I want to develop a plugin that has a single button "make me happy" that adjusts EQ so that your music matches the frequency response of a Simon and Garfunkel album.

I think you need to press 2 buttons and slide a slider though. :D

You are absolutly right - this EQ plugin is amazing.
Let's not fight about the amount of knobs and sliders here - we are joking anyways lolololol.
