It's Christmas Eve and I have a present for you already today in accordance with German tradition. 'Clap Happy', a free Live Pack with sampled real and drum machine claps featuring group claps (Ableton developers & me), single claps (me), Musicaid Clap Trap, Simmons Clap Trap and Boss Dr. Pad Claps. 8 Drum Racks containing over 300 sounds, all carefully recorded and sampled by me.
If clicking it to download results in a text-file, simply right-click and choose 'Save Link as...'. To install, just double-click the alp-file and choose the installation path when prompted by Live. And here's a tutorial on how to use the presets from Live Packs that are not self-installing.
Merry Christmas! Enjoy,
The Story Behind The Ableton Developer Claps
About a year ago I was asked by the Ableton developers to show and talk about my performance live set and how I worked with Live in the studio. I happily obliged, but asked them to do me one favour in return. To clap for me. I was working on a song that needed group claps and layered single claps don't quite sounded right. So after my talk they did. This was an unparalleled happening for them and it was good fun once they dared to. :)
P.S.: If you use any of the claps in a song or track, please post a link. I'd love to hear it.
P.P.S.: You can hover over the Drum Rack titles to see some info text in the bottom left of Live displayed.
