Activa Trance Essentials

Activa Trance Essentials£22.00GBP

Produced in collaboration with established trance producer Rob Stevenson (Activa), we are proud to present the Activa Trance Essentials sample library.

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.

This sample library contains a fresh collection of inspirational drum loops, drum/FX one shots, construction kits and a huge MIDI library that is sure to get your creative juices flowing. 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 part of your studio arsenal. We guarantee this sample library will become the foundation of every studio session.

With this product we wanted to capture the true 'Activa' sound, rather than just have Rob produce this sample library as a side-project, we asked him to look at this project as a way of cataloguing his own studio sessions and centralizing his production library into a single product. We truly believe Rob over delivered with this ground breaking bundle.

All files are neatly organised into their own unique sub folders, and all files are named and numbered so you can find them quickly during those creative studio sessions. All samples contain BPM (Beats Per Minute) information and root key information (where appropriate). Every melodic ‘loop’ has an associated corresponding MIDI file, including all the bass lines, synth loops, construction kits, etc.

As with every product we release, we strive to deliver the highest quality samples in the industry and this sample library is no exception. This sample library contains the true, popular, trending club sounds that are being played by DJ’s around the globe right now. So truly fresh, inspirational, road tested sounds ready to use out of the box.

This sample library is released as part of our new Artist Series product series, where we give you everything needed to get started from the word go; our sound sets contain the real "bread and butter" sounds that you actually need to get your productions off the ground. No need to waste time searching online communities, we give you the actual sounds professional producers are using in the studio right now.
