The story

Recently I was working on a project that needed a quirky percussive sound, so I decided to use some face slaps – that sound you get when you make your mouth into an O shape and hit the side of your jaw. After recording them it made sense to make them into a Kontakt instrument, so I’ve organised the samples and added in a few extra effects to play around with. So now you can slap my face from wherever you are in the world. Have fun!

Recorded with a single AKG 414.
No Tims were harmed in the making of this instrument.

  • The one we didn't want, but the one we needed

    This is an example of how to take a very simple, fun idea, and turn it into the perfect instrument. Because everything about it is perfect, I love it! It's sampled very well and it also features an amazing GUI design with 8 different options for you to play around.

    Tons of fun, super recommended!

  • This is surprisingly goooood

    The bounce and roll add some pretty neat delays! This one has quite a few options to uniquely shape the character of the .. face slap :)

    The UI is setup really well which allows for fast and intuitive exploration when trying to finding the right percussive sound. I stumbled on a really nice punchy synth-like bop in no time.

    This is awesome. thanks for sharing :)
