Drum processing just got a hell of a lot easier

Slap is the first plugin in Yum Audio's signature series
dedicated to making the sounds of established producers
available to everyone.

"Over the years, I've honed my drum synthesis process by starting from tweaking simple Operator patches and layering them with samples to where it is today: an extremely iterative process consisting of many individual macro FX racks and other tweaking/layering processes."

"Expecting most producers to be able to understand this extremely bespoke, personal process and recreate it on-the-fly without having to reference a YouTube video or something each time is an unreasonable expectation. Yet, I do like the idea of giving users the power to make drums at the same quality level as any other producer."

"So when Yum Audio approached me with the offer to collaborate on a plugin, the answer was obvious: make a plugin that whittles down this somewhat complicated process into a simple 1-stop-shop plugin with minimal controls to allow users to simply load something onto their drums or other sounds for instant slap"

Click Replacer

Replace any drum transient instantly! The click replacer is one of Slap's core features and a unique tool to improve any drum sound. First, it analyses the input signal to understand the transient location and loudness. Then, it allows you to replace this transient with any other click included in the plugin or even with the ones you've imported yourself.

Powerful Drum Shaping

Clap, Shape, Sub, Fat, Clip, Spray - At the heart of Slap are 6 FX modules that add punch, size, and character to any drum sound. Each of the modules can be freely adjusted in their routing by simple drag and drop.

Fine Tune your Sound

The Tune control is extremely powerful. It alters every process inside the plugin and allows you to easily re-tune the whole signal. This is done by applying frequency shifting in combination with changes to all time-based effects in SLAP.

A simple but
powerful purpose

Slap combines a unique click-replacement tool with a multi-effect unit. Each of the included effects is carefully designed to create snares and kick drums that slap and add punch to your tracks.
