I released a Nanostudio 2 edition of the Sidekick Electronic Percussion!

The Sidekick Electronic Percussion is a great add-on to any acoustic or electronic drums/percussions kits. Even though it features some kick drums, snares and toms, the bulk of this set is made of original and unique percussive sounds and FX. All were created with various softsynths.

You can read the PDF doc HERE.

It can be bought for $2.99 USD or bundled with the regular version (wav, sf2, Battery 3, Kontakt 3) for $ 5.99 USD.
A demo kit of 32 pads (65 samples) can be installed directly in your iPad from this link: ...

Clicking on the link from your iPad will (should) download it and then offer you the choice to open it with Nanostudio that will install the demo kit.

Here's an audio example made with the regular version but similar results can be achieved with the NS2 edition: Sidekick Montage

Visit this page for orders and more info:

And a video demo!
First, loading and playing some kits, then there's a mini tutorial about the velocity layers.
Followed by more finger drumming and finally building a complex pattern. Skip to 4 min 03 sec. if you only want to listen to the pattern.

Here's the more detailed timeline:

0.00: Loading and playing kits / finger drumming
1.29: Velocity layers
2.10: Pads Sustain mode
2.47: More kits / finger drumming
4.03: Building a complex pattern / finale

All sounds are dry, no audio processing whatsoever!

anickt made this fun tune where the Sidekick kits are used creatively. Here is the description on the Blip Interactive forum:
This is based on a dream my daughter had. It uses an Obsidian Soprano patch from @richardyot and some Sidekick Slate kits from @zvon. The voice is from an app called Speak and rest is a mix of factory and my own Obsidian patches. Pleasant dreams!

Sidekick sample set got a 4 stars review on Sampleism!
"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."
