I know nothing about claps, but could it be a rather tight reverse delay that makes that tail?

Ok this may not be how they did it originally but you'll be able to do it this way:

Get a clap that is similar in timbre and pitch to the one in the video (if that's what you want). Bus the signal to a mono aux channel. On the aux channel, apply a reverb (this will take some nitpicking to get the exact sound you want), then a gate. Fiddle with the gate settings so that it allows the reverb to match the duration you're after, but cuts off rather abruptly (as happens in the video). You can mess with the decay settings on the gate so that there is more or less "knee" to taste. After this, add a compressor, so that this signal is reduced in its dynamic range (this makes it more workable in the mix). Then via trial and error, use the fader on this aux channel to mix in with the original clap sound, again to taste.

Thanks! I'll play around with both ideas.

i was also thinking i might be able to get close by using the delay on my two aux envelopes as well as reassigning my pitch envelope and using it's delay as well (on the dsi tempest). Then maybe running it through my space.

It's worth giving anything a go. In the end you might find you get a sound which you prefer to the one you're trying to copy. That's not bad either.

My experience with delay is that it is typically for providing discernible durations between the initial sound and its echo, i.e. in the way of milliseconds. If so then you won't get a sound exactly like that on the video by using delay... however, I have no experience with the Tempest, and besides as I said anything's worth trying while you're messing around.

The method I gave is pretty fool-proof too.

Sounds like a clav hit on the right, and a noise sample (that ends abruptly) on the right?

EDIT - meant noise on the left...
