Getting that "swoosh" sound effect

Hi, guys. I have a short logo clip that I've made in After Effects, and I'd really like if it had decent audio acompanying it. Everything is a sort of "techy" swooshing feel - many elements slide in with motion blur, and there's a lot of background movement constantly. What I'm imagining is, during the beginning, some of that sort of deep bass sound that might make your chair rumble, acompanyed with the swoosh/"wind" sound that you often hear when elements slide in quickly. Maybe then I'll just add a little bit of a techno trance in the background (faded, so it isn't distracting) just to give it some coherence.

I have my own microphone and Adobe Audition, so I can record foley sounds and tweak them, so I'm not necessecarily asking where I can buy them (but I'd check it out if you had a place), I'm more wondering how you create them. Where does that deep bass sound come from? And the same with that "swoosh" effect that you see so often. I can't go stick my microphone outside on a windy day, because you'll just get that "camera in the wind sound" that is overpowering.

Do you guys get what I'm talking about? Here's the clip in case it inspires you:

Thanks for the help. :)

I think that you should be thinking about loading some "white noise" into a good audio editor like CoolEdit Pro or something similar and tweak the signal with doppler and other effects.
Take a look at this site:
and you'll see what I mean...
