Project 8 Tech Trance Essentials

Project 8 Tech Trance Essentials

Produced in collaboration with talented producer and sound designer Shane Kinsella (Project 8), we are proud to present Project 8 Tech Trance Essentials.

Containing well over 4GB of one shots, loops, MIDI files, presets and packed with genuine inspiration, this sample pack is a must have for any tech, uplifting and classic tech trance producer.

The contents of this pack were inspired by legendary labels such as BXR , Vandit, Nukleuz, Perfecto and Reset Recordings and influenced by classic tech-trance artists such as Randy Katana, Mario Piu, Mauro Picotto , Kai Tracid, Joy Kitikonti, Tiesto and many others.

It’s been road tested by leading producers such as Jordan Suckley, Indecent Noise, John O’Callaghan and Bryan Kearney receiving an incredible response!

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

Synth Loops, One Shots & Stabs

Want to get a tighter bass drop at your climax? Use bass one shots in your sampler for tighter envelope control and more punch in your mix. All the one shots are engineered to perfection and instantly usable straight out of the box. All one shots samples also have the key in the filename.

One Shots

  • 50x Vocal Phrases
  • 50x Vox Hits

Bass & Acid Loops

A cutting bassline is crucial for your tracks success, and this section of the sample pack truly showcases Shane’s ability to sculpt and compose bass sequences that truly rock your low, mid and top end. Every bassline loop is key labelled, with a separate dedicated collection of Tech MIDI bassline sequences.

  • 150x Acid Loops (136, 138 and 140 BPM keyed loops)

Synth Loops

Stuck for inspiration? Dig into Shane’s synth loops to instantly get your creative juices flowing. The synth loops are split across 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.

  • 150x Synth Loops (136, 138 and 140 BPM)
  • 50x Synth Loops (Including MIDI Files)
