Monster and Aliens - 5 free Slate Kits

edited February 12 in General chat

Hi everyone,

I just bought Nanostudio 2 last week and I like it!
I am studying the best way to make and distribute content for it. Here's the result of my first tests. It's a single zip (24 MB) containing 5 kits of samples taken from my Memory Collection sample packs 03 (Horror Movies) and 05 (Sci-Fi and Aliens). All are from Public Domain movies.

These are not drums or percussion kits, the sounds are of various types: voice/spoken word/dialogs, sfx/foley and music. They are simply mapped in 5 Slate kits (138 samples). All the pads are in "One-shot" mode, the samples play for their entire length. Some samples are a bit long, so try "Sustain" mode to have them play only as long as the pad is pressed or the length of the note in the part. Also don't hesitate to edit the samples or experiment with the various settings offered by the pad, like level, pan, tuning, envelopes, etc.

You can download the zip to your computer, extract it and then use WebDAV to move the kits to Nanostudio 2. Or click on the link from your iPad, it will (should) download it and then offer you the choice to open it with Nanostudio that will install the 5 kits in a single folder. The MC 03 mini kit had been previously released for Nanostudio 1.

    You're welcome

  • Wow, really cool samples in there!
    Thanks for your effort and sharing.
    I could open up the zip file directly on my ipad. Super easy! Thanks! @zvon

  • Nice! Thanks B)

  • @david_2019
    Glad that it worked easily!

    @anickt
    Have fun with the sounds!

    Here are some possible uses for these samples:

    • Use the samples as is to create sonic landscapes or rhythms.
    • Use them to spice up a musical composition
    • Use them as a major ingredient in a musical composition
    • Outline or tell a story, either with MC samples only or with other musical elements
    • Performance on pads, here setting some pads to sustain mode can be useful ( I personally really enjoy just banging on the pads and listening to the sonic mayhem!)

    The link below will open the MC 05 PDF documentation. On page 3, it offers more "Tips tp get the most of it":

    I have begun to make an audio example in Nanostudio 2 but it's not ready yet. In the meantime, there some audio examples on the Memory Collection page:

  • @zvon I’ve linked to your page in the description, this is what I made last night with some of those samples:

    Thanks again!
    Those are really fun kits, I’m enjoying making odd conversations with the vocal samples now😁 There are some good percussive and melodic sounds in there too, might try using a few in Obsidian later.

  • @3sleeves
    Thanks for the link, it's a nice soft track. It is indeed fun to mix these samples in odd ways.

  • Thanks great samples!

  • You're welcome!
