Salamanderanagram starts out with a simple noise oscillator that is routed through a bandpass filter module. Some time is spent on getting the right knobs in place and adjusting their sensitivity to help ensure the right action for later tweaking. Once all of this has been set up, the sound is passed through a decay/release envelope, which will provide the reverb and presence that this classic 909 style clap is known for. The setup can then be sent through a mixer and to the main output.
After the knobs have been arranged in the panel view, you can begin building the second half of this 909 clap instrument. A series of decay/release envelopes are introduced that will help control the delay effect for this 909 style clap. To ensure even and consistent delivery of the effect, It’s important to maintain the same control for all of the delay units, as well as the decay parameter of the envelopes. With all the modules setup, the only need now is to rearrange the panel view so that the new knobs are accessible. Once that is finished, you can begin using this fine 909 Style Clap!
