finding samples

i am looking for samples of claps and stomps (as big as "we will rock you" by queen) and im having a tough time searching on the internet for cds or individual samples. anyone have any ideas on where to look for these?

thanks!

are there places online that are a little bit more professional, and don't have adds everywhere? what about places to buy cds with sound libraries?

I just did the exact same thing the other day - looking for stomps and handclaps. Found the "Household Percussion" stuff to be pretty close to what I was looking for. Not exactly there, but hey it was free.

Stomp on the floor 24 times in front of a mic, take the track and chop it -- edit it onto 24 tracks and stagger the edits +/- 8ms or so (5-10ms), then pan them randomly (but even left/right so it doesn't 'lean'). Bounce it WITH HEADROOM so it's mixable, and "Import after Bounce." Then edit to the first transient, consolidate, and export into your sample library.

Do the same thing with a clap.

Are you going for organic or processed? If you're going for processed, you can layer in drum machine sounds or vinyl/CD samples as well.

The key is to spread them ALL out over 5-10 ms, which is a typical time frame for separate 'hits' from people clapping with a song (or whatever). Too close, and it becomes a tight "whack" with no body. Too far, and the clap loses its center.
