AC-1 is a sample-based handclap player with built-in rhythms that enables you to quickly add great and realistic sounding handclaps to your song.
With full control over the number of clappers, how hard or sloppy they clap, and close/room mic balance, this is the go-to device for all your acoustic handclap needs!
For AC-1, we sampled 120 hand claps at 5 different velocities. We used multiple microphones to give you control over the balance between the close and room mics. It’s just like mixing your own multi-tracked recording!
You can alter the amount of clappers, their placement in the room, and even change their relative timing. Do you want them to play tight or sloppy, or somewhere in between? You decide! You can fully automate all parameters, or control them via CV.
AC-1 comes with a preset rhythm section that helps you get started as quickly as possible. Auto Rhythm has 4 patterns, each with their unique fill-in variation. The Intensity knob affects of hard the rhythms are clapped. It doesn’t get any easier than this!
