in this video bellow David Guetta referes that he pitches the bassdrum to the key of the track (Min. 1:25).
My question are, how do you get it on logic and with which plugin do you analyse the key?

Something to bare in mind
No, if they are perfectly in key and phase they won't have any cancellation issues. If you don't tune your kick, you can end up with all sorts of phasing issues. Its usually best to tune your kick to some degree to minimize any phasing issues. There will always be phasing of some sort if your kick/sub overlap, but if you tune it properly you can normalize the phasing spikes/gaps due to pitch differences instead of having it random and all over the place.

I always play the main Melody part (in my case mostly a piano in the Verse)
togheter with the kick drum pitch 1 or 2 octave up. so i can clearly hear, if the key of the kick matches. if it doesn't, I simply pitch it up/down by a few semitones.
After that, i pitch it down to the right octave.
I think it's okay, if you choose a key of the song. If your song is in C, then it's also okay to choose a kick in G for example.
Hope this helps

i got one time very nice drums synthesizer:

and if i do what u want to do i use that and u will have 100% in tune kick and u can also make in tune snare and hats or whatever..
but dont forget..
if your song is in for example E not snare will be in E that is if i remmember good eight semitone from kick.. i should verify that.. but next thing what i dont know surely but probably like i read in this post is it true but kick drum maybe shouldnt be in key of song maybe six semitones down but i really dont know and i dont mind.. (i use ni maschine samples and that is prettiest drums i ever heard:) nevermind..) u must figure it somewhere.. but last thing what i remember, i read it from wikihow, kick drum should be in E..
hope help just a little..
