Audio examples

EC-1 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.

Product details

The sound engine in EC-1 is based on the filtered white noise design of the classic Roland TR-808, and we think you will recognize the sound. However, using the built-in Frequency, Decay and Ambience Level settings, you can shape that classic sound to almost anything. And, EC-1 comes with a true stereo mode for a more updated sound.

To help you get started quickly, EC-1 has a small preset sequencer section called Auto Rhythm. It has four patterns, each with a unique fill variation . If these patterns are not enough, you can of course switch Auto Rhythm off and trigger EC-1 via MIDI or CV.
