Take your production game to the next level and purchase Dave Parkinson Future Trance Essentials Deluxe Edition and get access to the Apple Logic Pro X Project Files for the bass, synth and construction kits in the pack! Including over 900+ additional presets.
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.
DELUXE ONLY: And for the first time ever - if you purchase the Deluxe Edition you also get the complete Apple Logic Pro X Project Files (including presets, MIDI files, channel strips and more) for all the synth, bass and construction kits as individual project files. Each project file is precisely named, coloured coded, grouped and easy to understand for the ultimate starting point in building your own productions. That’s 78 full project files from one of the most renowned producers in the scene. We have also carefully extracted all the presets from every project file, giving you over 900+ additional presets over the included 255 for Dave's favourite synths (ES2, Spire, Sylenth1, etc.).
We actually like to think of this sample library as three individually crafted products seamlessly combined to deliver a truly innovative, hybrid and up-to-date library of sounds and inspiration for your studio sessions.
For anyone unfamiliar with Dave’s work, for the past 25 years he has worked and collaborated with many of the leading names in the industry including Simon Patterson, John Askew, Jordan Suckley, Paul Oakenfold, Mark Knight, Eddie Bitar, Tall Paul and many, many others. His discography spans the entirety of dance music, covering almost every genre imaginable from house to trance, to more traditional indie band music. His knowledge of engineering, production and ‘tightness’ of his mixes is simply unparalleled, being behind some of the most prolific dance tracks of the last twenty years and rocking clubs for equally as long.
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.
Here is a detailed breakdown of the sample pack content.

Dave has been behind some of the most prolific bass lines and drops in the trance history and this section of the sample pack truly showcases his ability to sculpt and compose bass sequences that truly rock your low, mid and top end. Every bassline loop is key and BPM labelled, with all MIDI files included for each loop (including the individual layers).

The bass loops are equally spread across 125 - 140 BPM tempo ranges.
- 160x Bass Loops (160x WAV Files + 225 MIDI Files)
- 50x Psy Bass Loops (50x WAV files + 50 MIDI Files)
A bubbling, cutting acid sequence can really help spice up up a build or drop section of your track. Dave is no stranger to producing some of the best acid lines in trance music and this folder covers acid lines all the way from techno-inspired to 125 to full on banging team 140 style sequences.
- 160x Acid Loops (including 161 corresponding MIDI files)
Stuck for inspiration? Dig into Dave’s synth loops to instantly get your creative juices flowing. The synth loops are equally spread across 125 to 140 BPM tempo ranges with each ‘loop’ written specifically for the given range. A large majority of these melodies are fundamentally "Song starters” with some truly creative melody writing showcased in each one.
All synth loops come with corresponding MIDI files so you can quickly chop and change to fit your own tracks.
- 160x Synth Loops
- 314x Synth Loop MIDI Files
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.

Apple Logic Pro X Project Files (Deluxe Edition Only)
For the first time ever in a sample pack we are including the logic project files for the included synth loops, bass loops and construction kits. Each project file is carefully named, categorised, grouped and colour coded for ease of use.
Each template includes the full arrangement with all MIDI data, synthesizer presets, mixing/levelling, channel strips, and automation in place. All mixing is performed natively (for the most part) using only internal Logic Pro X FX chains. Every channel is named, coloured coded, grouped and easily identifiable in the arrangement view.
The templates are provided 100% royalty free and can be used as a base for your upcoming tracks or as an educational and inspirational tool. Explore the arrangement, find out how the drums, basslines, leads, plucks and FX have been made and put together, expand your synth preset library and discover specific mixing and mastering techniques used by actual professional producers.
In order to keep Dave’s sound as authentic as possible, we allowed him to use the typical 3rdparty plugins he would in his own personal productions without feeling restricted.
The required plugins for the templates are:
- Xfer Records LFOTool (latest version)
- Reveal Sound Spire 1.0.20
- LennarDigital Sylenth1 (latest version)
- U-He Zebra 2.7.2
- ArtsAcoustic Reverb
- Dune CM (available with Computer Music Magazine - only used for a small number of elements in the pack)
- FabFilter Simplon
- Logic Pro X (Latest Version)
Refunds will not be given for customers who do not meet this minimum requirement.
Additionally we have exported every preset and named it according to the corresponding MIDI file it works. This gives you a huge arsenal of instantly usable content right at your fingertips.
While producing this sample library Dave was inspired and influenced by the following talented producers and artists.
Simon Patterson, Jordan Suckley, John Askew, Eddie Bitar, Greg Downey, Ben Nickey, Mark Eteson and many others.
