Produced in collaboration with legendary production heavyweight Dave Parkinson, we are proud to present the highly-anticipated and long-awaited Dave Parkinson Trance Essentials 2!

Weighing in at a whopping 12 GB (10 GB compressed), this pack is overflowing with creative inspiration and highly usable sounds designed to last for years to come.

For anyone after that techno-inspired, banging 140 BPM trance sound, you simply cannot go wrong with this pack!

If you’re not familiar 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 and trance to live indie bands and more traditional music.

Artist Testimonials

His knowledge of engineering, production, and ‘tightness’ of his mixes is simply unparalleled, having been behind some of the most prolific dance tracks of the last twenty years. Artist Testimonials "I've been using samplers and samples for more than 25 years in dance & trance music productions and I’ve bought a lot of packs over the years. Most packs simply don't deliver. You expect something, and there are usually a few good bits, but nothing mind-blowing. Dave Parkinson must have had the same frustrations because HE did what you hope to get: QUALITY and USABLE stuff. If you can't make a trance track with these, you're probably my mom..." –Armin van Buuren

"Love this sound pack! It has some really cool techno loops and probably every kick drum from every trance track ever made. Probably the best pack on Freshly Squeezed! Massive props to Dave Parkinson on this!” –Ilan Bluestone

"Holy s@*t this is literally the best sample pack I have ever owned – and I own hundreds of them. It truly blows my mind how much work Dave has invested in this one. So much detail. I own all of his previous sample packs, but this one is on a different level. If you want to make high octane, high-quality trance this sample pack is a must. I’ve had it a week and I’ve already been rinsing it for ideas, textures, basslines, and fresh sounds. Dave Parkinson, I bow in your presence - because you really are the undisputed master.” –John Askew

"I was lucky enough to have this pack a few weeks in advance to test. It’s perfect for starting ideas and throwing sounds and samples in there. Off the back of that, inspiration comes and then you’re off. The little things like snare builds and instant stabs are all keyed. Endless energy and ideas are all a drag and drop away. Love all his packs! 11/10” –Simon Patterson

"Dave Parkinson is a leader when it comes to production, and this new sample pack is THE ultimate tool for both established artists and new budding producers. The attention to detail is unparalleled and this pack will instantly add a new dimension to your music. Buy it... right now!” –Greg Downey
