AudioThing, based in Dublin, have released Hand Clapper, a cool little tool that enables you to make custom hand claps based on the legendary Roland TR-808, TR-909, Boss HC-2, or your own WAV samples.

About Hand Clapper

Hand Clapper can make custom hand claps from 4 sources: the TR-808, TR-909, The Boss HC-2 Hand Clapper from the 80’s, or your own WAV file that’s shorter than 4 seconds. The instrument offers 20 factory presets, a tone bandpass/peak filter, a vintage reverb, and a randomizer feature. Processed hand claps can be exported as single WAV samples to use in other software.

Parameters Highlights

Hand Clapper features plenty of parameters to tweak. Some highlights:

  • Frequency: controls the frequency of the filters
  • Gain: controls the peak filter volume
  • Amount: controls how many times the source will be triggered to generate initial repetitions
  • Rate: controls the delay between each initial repetition
  • Decay: controls the decay time
  • Randomness: controls the amount of random changes applied to the filters and the volume
