The ../content

Clap Trak comes up with three different banks of hand claps. The first bank contains human hand claps and sounds. To achieve a very authentic clap feel we recorded all these sounds in 8 velocity layer and 6 round robin variations. Besides 2 group claps this bank provides 4 single claps, stick and snip sounds. In the second bank there are 9 different „classical“ drum machine claps which we collected over the last 20 years.
You will find samples of the TR-909, TR-808, Clap Trap, Linn Drum and other. The third bank consist of several unsorted claps that has built up over a number of years. It covers a range from single human claps to synthetic processed ones.
Clap Trak provides plenty of further options to change the sound to your very own requirements: reverb, delay, pitch, wah-like EQ modifier, Lo-Fi and distortion fx as well as the "Continuous Random Pattern" which works as a self generating pattern and fills every 16th note with a different velocity layer and length.
