Plastic Flap

Plastic Flap


The sound source of these instrument is a plastic flap, like those one finds as part of the protective plastic films on a newly bought smartphone.
Nonchalantly rubbing it with the thumb and index finger produces a somewhat squeaky noise, and decreasing the speed at which one rubs the flap results in more scratchy noises.
Is that not an excellent reason to create a sample library out of those noises? Of course it is, and here you have seven different patches (some may sound very similar to one another, however there are some subtle moving nuances that make them different) created by time stretching the recordings of rubbing the flap with said fingers in ProTools, processing them with a few different instances of Little Alter Boy by Soundtoys, and applying a generous helping of Valhalla Supermassive.

Very cool instrument here, the presets cover a wide range of jarring sfx, gentile pads and other creepy sound effects like the “Plastic Nightmare” preset that has this very interesting pitch bending down sound. So cool! Thank you for this.
