Hand Clap Synthesizer Virtual Instrument
Claps Synthesizer Plugin
Hand Clapper is a drum synthesizer plugin dedicated to claps sounds. The design is inspired by a famous Japanese percussion synthesizer from the '80s.
There are three internal noise sources that are used to recreate the classic sound of vintage analog drum machines (such as 808, 909, HC2, and more).
You are not limited to just the onboard sounds though, you can also load in any sample you want.
Inspired by the classic Boss HC-2 pedal, the "Hand Clapper" exists to generate handclaps. Out of the box, it comes with 45 Factory Presets using 21 custom analog samples taken from several analog instruments (drum machine, analog synths, and real claps) to emulate the TR-808 and TR-909, and the HC-2 itself.
You are not limited to just the onboard sounds though, you can also load in any sample of your own choosing (a single WAV up to four seconds long), which can lead to some very interesting results with a little experimentation. Try using synth shots, piano noises, or vocals for example!
