Produced in collaboration with music production legend Dave Parkinson, we are proud to present the highly-anticipated Dave Parkinson Progressive Essentials!
As a 25+ year production veteran and engineer for artists like Mark Knight and Kolonie, Dave is among the best in the industry – and this time, he has created a truly game-changing collection of samples, presets, and project files geared specifically toward the modern progressive sounds of Eric Prydz, Artbat, Camelphat, Kolonie, Miss Monique, Korolova, and more.
With 5 GB of spine-tingling, darker, and more nostalgic sounds to satisfy the contemporary progressive palate, this pack is overflowing with truly beautiful leads, unforgettable pianos, crisp, pristine drum hits and loops, minimal arpeggios, ear-pleasing plucks, haunting vocals, powerful basslines, and atmospheric FX.
If you’re looking for the tools to create truly beautiful and cutting-edge progressive tracks, do not miss out on the pure creative inspiration and treasure trove of super usable sounds in this pack!
"Honestly, I don’t even want to use any other packs at this point.” –Arty
"Dave Parkinson knows how to produce a track. You can tell from this pack because it’s neatly organized by relevant categories and each sound is instantly usable in almost every genre of dance music, not only progressive! I will use these sounds in my upcoming tracks for sure!” –Armin van Buuren
"Dave Parkinson always delivers top notch sounds. Love his work and this is something you must have in your library without fail.” –Ilan Bluestone
"Dave's attention to detail is unparalleled. This pack is inspirational from top to bottom, left to right. I particularly enamoured with the vocal loops and one-shots, as Dave has captured the progressive aesthetic perfectly. On top of the samples, the spire bank and logic projects are a dream come true for anyone seeking to expand their sonic arsenals.” –John Grand
"I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with Dave, and his knowledge and skillset is up there with the very best. If you're making progressive house, progressive trance, or a deeper more melodic sound, this pack is for you.
Unlike 95% of sample packs that only ever contain a handful of usable sounds, Dave’s progressive pack is full of great musical ideas to get the creative juices flowing, from one shots to bass loops, everything you need to make a great track is in this pack. The MIDI files are all key-labelled, and don't forget to check out the patches for Spire.
11/10 - BUY IT! You won’t be disappointed.” –Kolonie
"This new progressive sample pack from Dave Parkinson is incredible. So many epic soundscapes, loops, and hits that complement all styles of electronic dance music. Looking forward to getting stuck into this.” –Greg Downey
"Had the pleasure of testing out this pack in my latest productions - As expected from Dave it makes its usefulness so obvious you find yourself going back to it again and again. Fat rounded kicks, perfectly EQ’d percussion and no random nonsense sounds! Whether you’re adding an FX layer or need a bedrock of kicks & loops to kick off a project, this pack fits right into everything from subtle Cid Inc vibes to more energetic house, prog trance, & breaks.” –Peter Steele
"I’ve been using every sample pack from Dave in my productions. They are the second to none in modern dance music. I’m pretty sure O’ll be using this one as well. As always excellent work!” –Sebastian Brandt
