What type of songs have just single claps in that i could use? (When I say single claps i just mean claps without music, not just one person clapping). Please don't just say "soul songs". Could I have some recommendations?

Thanks

Car Wash, but everybody'll know what claps those are. If you chop'em up real nice, peeps might not know what they're from.

You're just gonna have to dig man. I can't think of any off the top of my head. Hopefully someone on the bord will have a record in their head that they can tell you about.

I gurantee if you listen to the albums you have, then you'll be able to find some.

i've only found one so far, on a david axelrod song. i'm fiding it pretty hard to find just nice clean claps on they're own.

wow, ha. has dilla sampled bowie? i'm suprised i haven't recognised it. i'm actually really into david bowie, i haven't sampled off ziggy stardust yet, but i know it's good for drum hits.




thanks for suggesting "car wash" cos that has excellent claps. all though i'm sure they have been used by almost every hip hop producer.

Go to the nearest record shop and dig looking for old obscure records. I Love using TUNAKI'S NIGHT OUT by this one japanese composer for strings and Hihats, but you're looking for claps. JUST DIG and LAYER

you dont need clean claps, just because there is a note or a tone with the clap doesnt make it unusable. Just grab that shit and lay it down and you cant tell the difference.

good claps are hard to come across. i agree. lately i've just used a lot of old drum machine claps but they don't have the same feel (of course) as real live claps. the best formula, in my opinion, is to throw a snare under the clap so it hits harder. you also don't need the fatest clap if you do your shit like that. keep this thread alive. i need more tips.

the light remix - common & erykah badu. you get about 4 or 5 clean clap samples before any music starts.

you ever thought about recording yourself clapping??
