Boscomac has announced The Clapper, a free clap box instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Any producer worthy of the name has ever need to claps but it does not always have the time to go into the studio with several people to record claps. And one sample of a clap is freeze, it’s always the same, it’s not ideal.
THE CLAPPER is a claps box that lets you select the number of claps at the same time (up to 7), the offset of the strikes, widening the stereo, the velocity range setting, the detuning of samples, the behavior of the Round Robin and add a treatment crowd: simple and effective!
THE CLAPPER is an instrument to place on any music to give a little spirited. You can use multiple instances at the same time and add your favorite reverb! And what of your hands now? Well, leave them on the mouse, right?
The Clapper is a free download for Reaktor 5 (full version).

Heavyocity has partnered with Icebreaker Audio to release BitRate II, a major update to the BitRate semi-modular 8-bit drum machine for Reaktor.
BitRate II uses multiple methods of retro digital synthesis and sampling to produce charismatic and nostalgic drum sounds. The included sound engines cover chipsounds, FM synthesis, lofi sampling, and glitchy circuit bending.
On top of these unique sound engines, BitRate II also offers a 5-track mixer and a master fx section that includes an analogue modelled EQ, bus compressor, and speaker simulator for added lo-fi effect.
The drums can be triggered via MIDI or from the internal sequencer. The sequencer provides two modulation sequences per drum, which can be routed to virtually any combination of sound parameters in any amount.
BitRate II also comes bundled with the MonoBoy instrument, a melodic counterpart for BitRate II. MonoBoy uses similar sound engines, but in an interface more suited to melodic playing.
The BitRate II Bundle ships with a total of 140 preset snapshots including a variety of sounds from kits and beats to synths and samples.
BitRate II features
- 5 drum slots into which you can load any one of 4 sound engines.

- The ability to sample from the audio input into a custom-built sample engine.
