Inspired by the classic Boss HC-2 pedal, Hand Clapper is a drum synthesizer plugin dedicated to claps sounds.

Version 1.5.1 of the plugin includes macOS 12 Monterey support and various other improvements and fixes.

The design is inspired by a famous Japanese percussion synthesiser 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 on-board sounds though, you can also load in any sample you want.
