Device Overview

Name/Version: Clapper 1.0
Author: OspreyInstruments  
Description: This is my take on an analog drum machine clap. While it doesn't perfectly replicate an 808/909, it covers a lot of the same ground, and should provide plenty of creative potential, especially for house claps.

There are banks of sliders to set the clap's delay, decay envelope, amplitude, and panning, and there are separate delay and envelope controls for the "body" clap that is meant to ring out at the end.

In the effort to keep the panel controls tidy and useful, some tweakable parameters are not visible, and max will have to be opened if you want to adjust them. These include the drift controls (by default set with moderate parameter randomization on the delay and decay times) and the HPF cutoff. The BPF controls are visible, so I figured this gave enough control without making things convoluted.

For effects, I included a comb filter (tread carefully, it is hard to tame) and soft clipping. I recommend some external effects, such as a compressor and reverb (for house style claps, I was finding a small medium density room was sounding nice).
