Dave Parkinson Trance Essentials

£22.00GBP

Produced in collaboration with production heavy weight Dave Parkinson, we are proud to present Dave Parkinson Trance Essentials.

Let me start by saying this product is truly unlike any product we have released in the past, and could well be one of the largest trance sample libraries on the market. The full package weighs in at just under 14GB (uncompressed) and is literally overflowing with creative inspiration from one of the most established and sought after producers in the scene today.

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.

With this sample pack we wanted to capture the ‘true’ Dave Parkinson signature sound and well over 2 years of hard work have went into making this product possible. We strongly feel Dave went above and beyond in terms of quality and usability and has truly brought the entirety of his sound palette to a much wider audience. 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 after truly cutting edge, modern sounding driving, uplifting, progressive and hard hitting psy-trance sounds you simply can’t go wrong with this product – when you see the shear amount of content included it’s literally a no-brainer and you know from the first sample it’s something truly game changing.

Demonstration Files

Sample Pack Content

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 and top loops, a highly comprehensive FX section (all neatly categorized, named and labelled), actual ‘usable’ melodic and bass line loops (each provided with associated MIDI files and in most cases presets), 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.

Each folder contains completely unique loops for that specific BPM. All loops are available in full, stripped and percussion only variants for easy mixing and matching in your productions.

  • 1148x Total Drum/Percussion Loops
  • 349x Full Drum Loops
  • 100x Break Beat Loops

  • 250x Bass Hits
  • 100x Pad Stabs
  • 250x Stabs

Vocal Samples

Vocal hits and loops can be the secret ingredient needed to spice an otherwise lacking breakdown, not to mention adding drive to your build ups and climaxes. Used correctly vocal loops can turn a track from average to epic.

  • 250x Vocal Hits
  • 150x Vox Loops

Bass Loops

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 labelled, with all MIDI files included for each loop (including the individual layers).

The bass loops are broken down into two main folders – Sub Bass Loops and Top Bass Loops. Each folder contains 4 individual subfolders spanning 134, 136, 138 and 140 BPM.

  • 200x Sub Bass Loops
  • 175x Top Bass Loops
  • 280x Sub Bass Loop MIDI Files
  • 239x Top Bass Loop MIDI Files

Synth Loops

Stuck for inspiration? Dig into Dave’s synth loops to instantly get your creative juices flowing. The synth loops are split across 134, 136, 138 and 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.

  • 175x Synth Loops
  • 325x Synth Loop MIDI Files

Construction Kits

Secondly we have 20 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 key and BPM labelled for ease of use.

Be sure to check out all three audio demonstrations 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.

Dave Parkinson Sound Banks

The third part of the sample pack is the two Dave Parkinson sound banks. One bank of 114 Sylenth1 presets and 65 Logic Pro ES2 Presets (one of Dave’s favourite synths!).

These are patches exported directly from the work on the sample pack and his own existing projects, so you are getting the genuine "bread and butter” sounds he uses daily in the studio. All sounds are named and organized in traditional Freshly Squeezed Samples fashion.
