2GETHERAUDIO RELEASED CL4P MAKER, A UNIQUE VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT DESIGNED EXCLUSIVELY FOR EASY OR EXPERT LEVEL CREATION OF HANDCLAPS FOR ALL STYLES OF MUSIC.
Boston, MA USA (April 24, 2019) – 2getheraudio, (https://www.2getheraudio.com), has released CL4P Maker (https://www.2getheraudio.com/instruments/cl4p_maker/), a first-of-its-kind virtual instrument dedicated to creating and playing an infinite variety of handclap sounds. Originally made popular by the Roland TR808 and TR909 drum machines, handclap sounds are utilized extensively in hip hop, pop, R&B, and electronic dance music of all styles. CL4P Maker builds on this tradition by offering music producers an extended collection of handclap sounds with the added ability to make their own electronic handclap sounds.
Two interfaces, Simple and Expert, give producers a highly optimized set of sound design controls for fast auditioning, simple tweaking or fine tune control of handclap sounds. CL4P Maker is available to purchase under 2getheraudio’s Pay-What-You-Want (minimum $10) pricing model from their website at (https://www.2getheraudio.com).
“Handclapping goes back as far as humanity itself so it’s not surprising you find handclaps in all styles of music today,” says Jennifer Hruska, CEO of 2getheraudio. “That being said, we didn’t see any software dedicated to creating a wide variety of handclaps, so we built CL4P Maker to remedy that. You can still get your traditional handclap sounds but with CL4P Maker you can now build completely new and unique electronic handclaps.”
Under the hood, CL4P Maker uses a custom audio engine built from Qubiq Audio’s struQture platform.
(https://www.qubiqaudio.com/) It uses several customized noise oscillators to generate the initial sound of clapping followed by custom envelope, gate and filter circuits to shape and color the tone. Additional drive and compression circuits add optional drive, color and presence. Effects, including bit crushing, decimation, and low pass and high pass filters add more possibilities for extra character or refinement of the spectral content. Finally, a simple reverb is included to allow for ambience control.
For those without the time or expertise to fine tune all these parameters, CL4P Maker offers a Simple View which exposes just four sound control knobs, 4 effects buttons and 3 reverb options for quickly dialing in your sound. When needed, and Expert View takes you under the hood for finer control.
CL4P Maker supports 64-bit VST, AU, AAX capable DAWs. It is Mac and Windows compatible. CL4P Maker is released under 2getheraudio’s Pay-What-You-Want (minimum $10) business model so nearly all musicians, regardless of their ability to pay, have access to this software.
