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.
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.
