Simmons Clap Trap ReFill for Reason

When making funk, the Simmons Clap Trap is essential. This little box defined the late seventies and early eighties funk eras, placed on the twos and fours and, when combined with a well-mixed real drum kit, defines funk.

As a stop-gap measure until I can use VST plugins in Reason (or I one day get my hands on a real Clap Trap), I sampled in eight different triggerings of this device and set Kong to randomly fire them.

I also put a Combinator in there that uses a Matrix to automatically fire Kong’s claps on the twos and fours, if you want to emulate the Auto function.
