The Idea behind Snaps and Claps
We truly believe that this tool solves a specific problem! And that is, using the right snap or clap sounds in your tracks. We created this library as a time-saver to prevent us from doing the same work over and over again. In particular, recording snaps/claps in the studio and mixing them afterwards. Instead, we put an enormous amount of work and time into flexibility and detail in order to make this tool as helpful as possible:
There is an intigrated „stage control“ mixing tool with 5 distances and width control, a dedicated section for randomness, over 60 round robin notes on each velocity layer and also a free scalable ensemble builder from 1 to 20 sounds at a time. We also included the dry samples to let you make use of your own spatial tools.
Besides that, we are very happy to mention that there is also an extensive user preset bank included (over 72 .nki files). This preset bank was created by some very talented professionals (composers, sound designers and also sample developers) from the VI-Control forum.
This library can be used in an acoustic or electronic context. It’s not just about snap and clap sounds, it is a crative and easy-to-use tool to make the life of composers, music producers and sound engineers easier.
Important note: In order to use Snaps and Claps you have to have the full version of Native Instruments‘ Kontakt 5.3 (or higher). This library does not work with the free Kontakt Player.
