Produced in collaboration with established trance producer Rob Stevenson (Activa), we are proud to present Activa Trance Essentials 2!

Since 2004, Rob ‘Activa’ Stevenson has forged a career as one of the hardest working producers in the trance genre, with a number of aliases and styles, releasing on the biggest labels in the world including Paul van Dyk’s mighty Vandit Records, Black Hole, Armada, and Anjunabeats, before finding a home at UK independent, Discover Records where he released the critically acclaimed album This World in 2009 and its follow-up To The Point in 2011.

Activa Trance Essentials 2 is the long-awaited follow-up to Activa Trance Essentials, one of the most successful products within the Freshly Squeezed Samples product catalogue. However the time it’s bigger and better than before, containing a brand new collection of inspirational bassline loops, bass hits and multi-samples, construction kits and MIDI kits, percussion loops, drum hits, FX, synth loops and hits, remix kits, and–new to the Activa catalog–Sylenth1 presets. Get ready for another high quality library of sounds to inspire you!

If you are after the clean, pumping trance sound of producers like Activa, Simon Patterson, John O’Callaghan, Giuseppe Ottaviani, and alike, this sample pack is a must-have being suitable for progressive, uplifting and psy-trance producers alike.

Sample Pack Content

First off we have a complete and comprehensive sample pack containing thousands of drum one shots (kicks, open hats, closed hats, snares, cymbals, percussion hits, etc.), hundreds of percussion top loops, a highly comprehensive FX section (all neatly categorized, named and labelled), actual ‘usable’ melodic and bass line loops (in most cases each with associated MIDI files), 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

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 key and BPM labelled for ease of use.

Additionally, we have 5 complete melodic MIDI construction kits and 4 bonus remix kits.

The remix kits each contain stems and MIDI files (where relevant) for the following well known Activa releases:

  • Activa - Fall To Me

  • Activa - Sniper
  • Solar Movement – Echowave

Sylenth1 Soundbank

The third part of the sample pack is the Activa Sylenth1 sound bank containing 20 categorized, usable presets.

These are patches exported directly from the work on the sample pack and Rob’s own existing projects, so you are getting the genuine "bread and butter” sounds he uses daily in the studio. All sounds are named and organized in traditional Freshly Squeezed Samples fashion.
