Les Productions Zvon releases Kids Kits sample pack

Les Productions Zvon Kids Kits

Les Productions Zvon has released Kids Kits, a sample library featuring a collection of recordings of children.

The samples in this set are taken 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.

I selected 136 unique one-shot samples from this session and further split some of the longer ones so there are 259 samples in total. These also include 13 interesting noise samples.

This set is available in the following formats and all are included in a single purchase: Caustic 2, wave, sfz, Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 and Battery 3.

The Kids Kits sample pack costs $2.99 USD. A free demo of 41 samples is available to download.

Roland has announced the release of V-Drums Friend Jam Kids, a free software application for children to build drumming skills and compare their progress with other V-Drums users around the world.


V-Drums Friend Jam Kids provides a fun way to practice & enjoy playing V-Drums.

As the industry leader in electronic percussion, Roland offers a wide-ranging lineup of V-Drums sets, from the flagship TD-30KV V-Pro Series to the home-friendly HD-3 V-Drums Lite. V-Drums Friend Jam Kids helps children and their families communicate with each other through practicing with any V-Drums set. By accessing a child’s “player page” with their computer or smart phone, family members can easily check practice time, scoring, and more to keep up with playing progress and encourage improvement.

Since its release two years ago, V-Drums Friend Jam has become an extremely popular social networking tool for drummers, with over 30,000 users to date in 175 countries and regions worldwide. The software allows players to share scores and interact with each other via their Twitter accounts while practicing the drums.

V-Drums Friend Jam Kids is a completely self-contained application that does not require Twitter to share scores. Its practice features and functions are similar to V-Drums Friend Jam, but are tailored more to children who are just starting to learn the drums. The software supports 13 different languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Polish, Russian, Turkish, and more.

V-Drums Friend Jam Kids – Record Screen Available for both Windows and Mac OS X, V-Drums Friend Jam Kids helps young drummers improve their skills with enjoyable songs and fun practice evaluation features. It offers a friendly and inviting user interface, plus a continuously growing library of play-along songs that can be downloaded directly within the application from the web. Included are traditional children’s tunes like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” classic pieces such as “Air on the G String,” and a variety of musical grooves in popular styles, all specially arranged for playing along on the V-Drums. Users can also add MP3 files stored on their computer to jam with their favorite songs.

By connecting their V-Drums kit to their computer via USB or MIDI, players can capture and evaluate individual performance elements such as rhythm, technique, and variation, then see how their results compare with other V-Drums Friend Jam Kids users around the world via the Internet.

New Metronome and Beat Guide functions help developing players build their basic drumming skills in an interactive way. In addition, score rankings, achievement awards, and a calendar feature that tracks playing time motivate them to reach practice goals.

The V-Drums Friend Jam Kids software application is available as a free download for Windows and Mac.

Short links for August 6th, 2008

Some interesting things I found on August 6th, 2008:

# Free audio recordings from the Berlin S-Bahn. – Oliver Chesler writes:

Yesterday I took a trip to Ikea in Berlin. To get from Prenzlauer Berg to Spandau takes about thirty minutes on the S-Bahn. I had my camera with me which also takes decent video. However, it wasn’t visual imagery I was after. I hit record but left the camera’s lens cap on. I was only after audio recordings.

There are a myriad of hot flash recorders on the market but I used what I had with me and I think the recordings sound great. Another advantage of recording this way is people aren’t really aware of what your doing. If I had a Sony PCM-D1 in my hand people may not speak naturally. I’m planning on using some of these recordings on my next album but your free to use them too. Remember it’s not the sounds, it’s how you use them!

# Critter and Guitari – Here are some pictures showing how to construct a felt top enclosure for the Pocket Piano Kit. The enclosure uses felt for the top, and wood on the sides.

# Noise.io, “First” Synth for iPhone/iPod Touch, Will Bring Gestural FM Synthesis Control – Peter Kirn writes:

The iPhone and iPod Touch are getting their share of metronomes, guitar tuners, sonic toys, and even one fairly full-featured sample-based drum machine / arrangement tool (BeatMaker). But what about live synthesis? Noise.io (short for Noise for iPhone) claims to be the “first” synth. (I believe, technically, that honor goes to Einar Andersson’s iPhone synth, but that isn’t yet an official iTunes app, and it’s relatively basic by comparison.)

More info on Noise.io here.

# Paul Rubenstein kids – Paul Rubenstein, known as "Mr.R." by his students, teaches high school and middle school kids how to make electric guitars and amplifiers.
