Slappers, Fluffers and Suckers


Wave Alchemy has announced the release of Paperskins Snare Toolkit, which they describe as a hand crafted collection of 'filthy' snare drum samples and layering tools.
Paperskins serves up 211 individual snare drum sounds; each of these samples being conveniently provided in three different 'sound/shape' and tonal variations, which Wave Alchemy says is perfect for layering and crafting new snare drums.
A Wave Alchemy spokesperson told Sonic State, "All sounds have been processed through a high-class, all analogue signal chain, with lots of extra vibe added through the use and abuse of an Akai S1000 sampler, often recorded to at a hot level and driven by ears rather than meters - this has imparted a unique sounding 'papery' sizzle to the sounds... hence the name Paperskins."
Included in the collection
  • 633 24-bit, 100% royalty free snare drum samples
  • Slappers - 211 Punchy, tight and transient rich snare drum variations - uniquely processed and specifically tone-shaped to enhance the 'slap' of the sound
  • Fluffers - 211 loose, papery and powerful sounding snare drum variations - individually processed and specifically treated to enhance the 'body' of the sound.
  • Suckers - 211 reversed snare drums which have been individually processed and envelope-shaped - great for layering either underneath or slightly before the Slappers and/or Fluffers to provide complexity or additional 'suck'.
A free taster pack which includes 30+ samples taken directly from Paperskins Snare Toolkit is available to download from the Wave Alchemy website (registration required).
