Trance is the electronic music genre that just won't lie down, with its sound continuing to pop up all over the place.
If you're a would-be trance producer this week's SampleRadar collection will give you the basic project elements you need to get started.
What you need to know
The trance basics samples are divided into five folders: Beats, DrumHits, FX, Loops and Rolls.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The trance basics samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
