Sidekick Electronic Percussion
Unique Percussive Sounds
I wanted to create percussions that not only would sound great and offer versatility when sequencing. But that would also be fun to play in realtime on a keyboard or a drum pad with the velocity layers.
I am very happy with the results. I named it Sidekick because it is a great add-on to any acoustic or electronic drums/percussions kits. Even though it features plenty of kick drums, some snares and toms, the bulk of this set is made of original and unique percussive sounds and FX.
There are 285 sounds including 152 with velocity layers (from 2 to 8, average 4 or 5) for a total of 809 samples.
All were created with various softsynths.
Available in soundfont, Kontakt 3 (full version, not the free player), Battery 3 and wav file formats.
**Nanostudio version now added, it's a trimmed down edition of the the original release as Nanostudio Slate pads can hold a maximum of 3 samples. It has 436 samples (24 MB).**
Definitely will require some time to explore the full capabilities of these as velocity layers. Sold me on how this is cross platform between Soundfont, Kontakt and Nanostudio. As with all Zvon's sounds, quality is excellent and price is affordable.
