Making bass drops (808) sounds in audacity

So i ran across some samples where this user used audacity to create this awesome samples. And i'd like to create some similar to these, but i don't know how to do the drop part of it. I guess you would just use the tone generator to get the sound, but how do you do the drop? And what things would effect how high the drop starts to how low it goes? Here's some examples of what i'm talking about, and

Thanks for any help!

You need Audacity 1.3

I'm not sure how much success you will have with this method, but it is supposed to work (seems to be a bit buggy on my Linux computer)
Create the sound (use Generate or whatever) then create a "Time Track".
Use the Envelope tool to create a down slope in the time track.

Alternatively (and this is probably the better solution)
Get a copy of the "Turntable warp" plug-in by by David R. Sky and apply that to a tone.
