Original 80’s Claps for your DAW.
At some point in the mid 80s Simmons drum company ( famous for the 80 hexagonal-padded drum kits ) decided to release a box that would help R+B producers achieve the thick, powerful claps that were incredibly popular in the club music of the decade
Using a simple EPROM based 8 bit Sample mixed an analog noise generator it’s genius was its utter simplicity and the innocuous ‘Humanise’ Button that made every clap ever so slightly different
We’ll be honest – these were not built to modern standards and many have not survived the last 30 years. This has forced the second-hand value up to near-ridiculous levels and we’ve not been able to find a single flexible sample pack for it.
We bought this into F9 as part of the sessions for F9 Electric Funk but we had so much fun with it ,we had to create a little freebie for the production community
We format our Zips slightly differently for MAC and PC but if you use both, PC is the best option
