Cinematique Instruments Clap Trak

Clap Trak: generate patterns by combining various hand claps with a 16-step sequencer

Such as the other Cinematique Instrumnets pattern generator CLAP TRAK is best suited to give your music a percussive addition. You can easily create several different clap styles such as flamenco feeling, vintage drum computer, wah style, single & group claps and much more.

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. This huge amount of samples works perfect. 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: slider to control the amount of reverb and delay as well as the pitch level. Switches to activate wah-like EQ modifier, Lo-Fi and distortion fx as well as switches to select different types of reverb, tempo, shuffle mode and finally the “Continuous Random Pattern” which works as a self generating pattern and fills every 16th note with a different velocity layer and length.

CLAP TRAK runs in standalone mode as well as in-sync to your host application.

Clap Trak for Kontakt is available to purchase for 22 EUR (requires Kontakt 4.22 or higher full version).
