Heavy weight trance producer Dave Parkinson is back with a momentous follow up to his legendary "Trance Essentials” sample pack.
Dave Parkinson Future Trance Essentials contains 19+ Gb of uncompressed first-class trance production content including drum hits, drum loops, synth loops, bass loops, FX, presets and more from one of the most sought after producer/engineers in the dance music scene. The content covers a combination of future progressive (80’s, deep and ‘Prydz’ inspired progressive), full on Team 140 style, tech-trance, psy trance and deep/progressive, but is equally usable in genres such as Synthwave and techno due to the wide range of BPM’s covered.
With this sample pack we wanted to truly build on the solid foundations of the first pack but go a step further. This time round each bass loop has a corresponding synth loop, with each element being carefully keyed and BPM labelled for ease of use. Additionally the drum loops are now broken down further with dedicated hi-hat, percussion, shaker and techno percussion loops included, allowing for more comprehensive mixing and matching than was previously possible.
Sample Pack Content (Part 1)
First off we have a complete and comprehensive sample pack containing thousands of drum one shots (kicks, open hats, closed hats, snares, cymbals, percussion, etc.), hundreds of drum, percussion/top loops, a highly comprehensive FX section (all neatly categorised, named and labelled), actual ‘usable’ melodic and bass line loops (each provided with associated MIDI files and in most cases patches), hundreds of synth, bass and stab one shots, synth presets and much more.
Every sample is clearly named and numbered with appropriate BPM and key labelling information appended to each filename. Along with this, all files are carefully categorized into a well thought out folder structure in classic Freshly Squeezed Samples style, so it’s both quick and easy to find the sound you are looking for in during those late night studio sessions.
Construction Kits (Part 2)
Secondly we have 10 complete, truly usable construction kits each containing the individual stems and associated MIDI files for each melodic element. Each construction kit has its own distinct mood, but thanks to the intuitive file naming, you can quick and easily swap out loops, samples and MIDIs and try out thousands of potential combinations.
Each construction kit is BPM labelled for ease of use.
Be sure to check out both audio demos for a comprehensive insight into what is included in the pack. All the audio demonstrations are available to hear via audio player playlist button on the top right of this page.
Dave Parkinson Future Trance Sound Banks (Part 3)
The third part of the sample pack is the two Dave Parkinson sound banks. One bank of 130 Sylenth1 presets and 125 Spire Presets (one of Dave’s favourite synths!).
These are patches exported directly from the work on the sample pack and his own existing projects, so you are getting the genuine "bread and butter” sounds he uses daily in the studio. All sounds are named and organised in traditional Freshly Squeezed Samples fashion
