How to add to Carpenter's superb add without adding? By adding handclaps, that's how! Carpenter nailed - utterly nailed the feel and setting of the groove. Getting that soul/disco crossover perfectly.

So all that's been added here is a sequenced handclap on the 2 and 4 with extra syncopated ones every four bars. The handclaps are a combination of a real handclap sample and the classic TR-909 general midi one which works so well in every situation.

So here it is. More of the same but with some handclaps. Simples! But, to me, it genuinely helps give that '70s feel which Carpenter got so right!

mpointonmpointon It's funny. I've got more 'likes' for sticking a bunch of sequenced handclaps on the 2&4 on a track than for the original template..! Wink

Because people like handclaps, while we clap our hands, we don't fight with smile.gif
