Rattle sound

Hello,

Does anyone know how to make a rattle sound Electronically. Like on the intro to sweet emotion and the intro to crazy train?

you could look for samples of it.

the instrument is called a "vibraslap"

you could probably do it pretty easily with synthesis but i don't see why you would / i don't know how to off hand.

i would use a square wave lfo on a noise sound source with a lpf that had decently high resonance and then compress it. i would also use a basic envelope on the amp with no attack, 1-3 second long decay, no sustain and high release.

but i've never tried so idk. perhaps look into "clap" percussion synthesis techniques and alter that to taste to fit the vibraslap sound...

hope this helps

I think the Vibraslap was meant to simulate the jawbone of an ass with lose rattling teeth which happen to be very delicate might as well pick up a flex-a-tone while you're at it

cr-78 guiro sound! haha. not quite the same but it sort of reminds me of it, especially on my midi'ed cr-78 where i can make it sound different than the stock repeating pattern.

Hear the production value and then just weep to yourself.

The clip ends with a vibraslap: http://andyhky.com/sounds/vibra_dre.mp3?referred=true
