Product Testimonials

Product review: Maor Levi (Maor Levi) on Aug 05 2014

I got the banks from the lovely guys at Freshly Squeezed Samples. I’ve been using Vol. 3 and 4 for quite some time and was impressed with the sounds and recreations. These are truly friendly, forward-thinking types of sounds that can be a great addition to your production.

Product review: Bjorn Akesson (Bjorn Akesson) on Aug 05 2014

V-Station has always been essential in my productions, and after using the K-Station and V-Station for more than 6 years I thought I had seen its full potential. However the V-Station Definitive Collection proved me wrong and showed me that the machine can actually do even more. The V-Station Definitive Collection will definitely make me use V-Station more often. Ripping basses, raw synth leads and deep plucks perfect for trance production. The sound bank contains all the synth presets you need to make a professional sounding track.

I have already been familiar with Freshly Squeezed Samples since they created an awesome sound bank for my favourite VSTi, V-Station.

I have not been a Sylenth1 user for very long and when I tried their sound bank I was more than amazed. The bank offers cutting-edge leads and thumping bass lines for trance music. The sounds created have been a big inspiration for my upcoming work and I can't wait to try more of these sounds in my productions. The price is more than affordable for what it offers as well!

Product review: Craig Connelly (Craig Connelly) on Aug 05 2014

Freshly Squeezed samples and presets are my number one "go to” libraries for all my recent productions. They are ready to use straight out the box and make incredibly solid foundations for modern dance music productions.

Product review: Andrew Dawson (Kanye West | Jay-Z | Pet Shop Boy | John Legend) on Aug 05 2014

I like to work quickly and efficiently when trying to get new ideas and sounds. The Freshly Squeezed sound sets get me in the ball-park fast and making music quickly.

The Zebra sounds are top notch, and combined with the customizable power of Zebra you can get exactly what you’re looking for in a matter of seconds!
