[EDIT] September, 2019: It's back to school time but the Kids Kits are still having fun with a new format, NanoStudio 2!

It still costs only $2.99 USD and all the formats are included. Previous buyers of the set can email me and, after verification, they will receive the NS2 version for free.

________________________________________________________
Some of you may remember that I released in 2005 a small free collection of 20 samples named the Kids Kits. They were from a recording I made with two young children, a little girl (3 years old) and a little boy (5 years old). They were very happy to sing, talk and make funny noises in the microphone.

It will be back this week but it now has 136 unique one-shot samples from this session and I further split some of the longer ones so there are 258 samples in total. These also include 13 interesting noise samples.

It will be available in the following formats: wav, Caustic 2, sfz, NI Kontakt 3.5 and Battery 3 (or better). It will probably cost $3 US.

Below is a track that Liqih from NUSofting made then featuring some of the 20 original samples with the text from his original post.

Short track I made in Caustic 2 for the video demo, the kids are busy in this one.
Except for the kids samples, all the sounds are from Caustic 2.

A simple 3 bars loop playing 3 times in NanoStudio, note that it may still change.

The drums and the synths are from NanoStudio factory content.

I am taking the liberty to post here some comments that were made about the Kids Kits in the Samples Forum.

I have no idea what I'd do with this, so I bought it.

That's the best reason. It may give you ideas!

This set has been my best seller in the last year.
Based on the Sampleism numbers, a bit more than half of those who downloaded the demo bought it!
Very good ratio :D

The Dub Kids is so infectious it needs an antidote. ;) Nice work.
We shall see orchestral machines with a thousand new sounds, with thousands of new euphonies, as opposed to the present day's simple sounds of strings, brass, and woodwinds. -- George Antheil, circa 1925 ---

This time, I wanted to showcase the Kids Kits with a smoother and quieter feel than in my previous videos!
Made in NanoStudio 2 with Obsidian synth creating the "spacy" vibe.

The Sound Test Room made a great tutorial on the new eG Pulse, a fun drum machine for iOS. He used the Kids Kits in part of this tutorial. For those interested, it's from roughly 30m30 to 36m30:
