No time shifting. This is pretty much your kit as posted. Other than  
playing with colored icons, I didn't do much to it other than make some  
volume adjustments inside of Doggiebox.

As for hearing the kick in isolation... that would have been a great  
idea. The thing is, the post processing I applied was to the exported  
song, not to the individual sounds. I applied some eq that reduced the  
boominess of the kick in the exported song file. I also applied some  
limiting to that same file to "maximize" the file before building on  

If I treat individual sounds (a great idea, just not one I've had time  
for yet) I'll be sure to share.
