Ad Brown Progressive House Essentials£16.00GBP

Produced in collaboration with established progressive house producer Ad Brown, we are proud to present the Activa Trance Essentials sample library.

Ad is well known worldwide for his precision-built, evocative soundscapes that have quickly found the ears of many in today’s progressive scene. Progressive maestros like Sasha, Nick Warren & Dave Seaman are ardent supporters, as are forward-thinking trance legionnaires like Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Solarstone and Gareth Emery. Testament to this, Ad quickly became the progressive remixer of choice for many A-list stars including; Usher, Tinchy Stryder, Dionne Bromfield, Loick Essien and many others.

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, smooth progressive sound of producers like Ad Brown, Tom Fall, Jaytech, Dinka, EDX 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 ‘Ad Brown’ sound, rather than just have Ad 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 Ad 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).

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.
