That "snap" noise is really you just clapping with one hand. The disc is slipping out of your grip and then all your fingers are springing back on to your palm making the noise you hear.
True "SNAP" is basically you generating enough force that the disc RIPS from your hand imparting the kinetic energy of the throwing movement along with the spin imparted from the pivot point of your grip.
Is it confusing. YES. Do we have the technology to rebuild your throw. YES.
Blake can confirm/deny this, but I have found that when people are getting that loud noise, its because they are gripping too soon and as soon as you can no longer maintain that pressure, the disc slips out.

What grip are you using? Can you post a pic? Certain grips require certain physical apptitudes, in that they require much more grip strength to throw.
IF its an issue with your grip i have some suggestions i can give you.
