Clap your hands say clap!
And the holiday gifts keep coming. Next up: an all-clapping plug-in.
Yes, Clap Machine does just what it says: it makes claps. Think four octaves of them, even, all very natural-sounding. Now, at first this is the sound of one hand clapping – okay, two hands clapping. You’ll probably want to use multiple notes to get more. (It’s actually a shame there isn’t a control for that, but … well, you’ll figure it out. I might actually whip up a quick Max for Live device to use single inputs from a step sequencer but generate more claps – anyone messed about with ideas with that?)
Natural reverb, with control.
And it sounds really nice. 99sounds have loads of these sorts of giveaways, the output of the Bedroom Producers Blog. For instance:
99 drum samples (really lovely collection of hits)
and Project Pegasus, a bunch of dreamy synth stuff.
The clap instrument is based on a sound library full of claps and snaps..
