EC-1 Electro Clapper is a synthetic hand clapper for Reason, based on the hand clap found in the legendary Roland TR-808 drum machine.
But we’ve gone beyond that by adding true stereo and several knobs to tweak the sound to your taste. Everything can be automated and CV-controlled to really make the clap sound come to life in your tracks.
EC-1’s sound engine is heavily based on the hand clap synthesizer found in the classic drum machine Roland TR-808, with specially made envelopes to get just the right sound. But this device goes way beyond the original: EC-1 gives you precise control over the filter frequency, decay and ambience level, and it even adds a true stereo mode!
Did you ever wish that Kong had a synthesized hand clap module? Just hook EC-1 right into Kong and you’re ready to go! You can make one of Kong’s pads trigger the clap via CV, and you can even route the sound back into Kong to share master effects with the other drum sounds.
EC-1, just like its sister device AC-1, comes with preset rhythms to help you get you started quickly. Choose between 4 classic patterns, each with a unique fill variation. The rhythm will also be sent to the Gate output so you can use it to control other devices.
