AskAudio Mag Review - Claps and Stacks

AskAudio (AskAudio Mag) - 30/05/2014

Layered and processed multi-transient claps are all the rage in House music at the moment, and Wave Alchemy has sought to satisfy this key niche in the modern producers' drum library with a diverse array including layered ensemble clap stacks, tight and snappy single claps, synthetically generated claps, processed drum machine claps, and a wide range of dirty, decimated, lo-fi claps and sculptured noise impulses...

562 samples are provided in total, featuring dynamic blends of acoustically sampled and electronic clap origins – including classics such as the TR-909, TR-808, TR-707, TR-505, Linndrum, Machinedrum, Sequential Drumtraks, Oberheim DX and more, all run through Wave Alchemy's collection of lo-fi and high-end outboard processors.

And this isn't your grandpa's processing chain: it prominently features an Oto Machines Biscuit, EMU SP-12, Akai S950 and various analog filters and sound shaping boxes, as well their in-house acetate process: cut to an acetate dubplate, each sample was recorded at multiple playback intervals to capture the unique deterioration of the acetate medium over time; from these multiple versions of each clap, the most pleasing distortion results were selected for inclusion.

The result is an exhaustive collection of distinctive clap sounds that are designed to deliver texture, punch, crispness and clarity to your drum tracks. Warning: may induce whiplash!
