CONNECT:D Audio has launched Stacked Claps, a sample pack comprising a collection of claps from vinyl-style Dilla inspired goodness and loose, lazy organics right through to RNB-infused sounds and vintage house claps.
Getting a club-ready, rich, warm sound when creating music (and more specifically drums) is often down to the patient task of layering samples. Whilst this process is definitely rewarding, it can be useful to have a sonic palette to draw from that includes a selection of already stacked, production-ready sounds.
To start, we meticulously sourced over 300 claps from various sources including classic drum machines, analogue grooveboxes, live recordings and even a broken Casio keyboard. We then intricately layered and sculpted these sounds to create more than 100 all-new oneshots, running them through some serious gear in the process, including Neve preamps, outboard effects and an MPC60 for good measure.
Crafted using an expert combination of panning, hardware processing and displacement, Stacked Claps serves up a wealth of highly useable layered sounds for your studio. We’re confident that you’ll be pleased at just how easily these sounds will fit into your mixes with minimal, if any, additional processing needed.
The Stacked Claps pack is available for purchase for £9.95 GBP.
