247 - BIG Trance Claps        

From: Broken Silence
Email: skiingangzta@hotmail.com
Date: 22-Jul-03


For those big trance claps that slam your mix (IE Ferry Corstenish stuff)

-Load any clap sample that is clean sounding

-If your sampler has a "late start" or just cut off the first part of the sample, do it to taste

-Load a reverb with no predelays or "room" settings. Make the reverb about 4-6 seconds long and mix it in to 70ish percent. If it has density controls, make sure it is around the 50ish percent.

-Load an EQ- boost the HI and MID to taste and cut LOW end.

Now you have a really ugly, piercing clap.

-Load a noise gate with no attack or release and set the decay to taste

-Compress the output and you're done!

All the big producers are doin this now, it really sounds great! (Took me a while to figure this out, but you probably already know it :D)
