TECHNOTRANCE brings you a huge collection of classic synth & FX samples from the 80's, arranged in logical easy-to-find sets. If seriously squidgy sounds are your bag, then this classic collection could send you on a whole new trip: Rave synths, FX, Basses, Stabs and 'Tinklers', Thundering lead sounds and squidging acid lines are the order of the day along with useful 'alternative' bass sounds, pads and risers.
The cross-faded 'trancers' section is ideal for people who lack an analogue synth in their setup; the 'Top 20 Stabs and Hooks' will yield ideas for complete tracks; and the Moog Basses are invaluable. We've also included a selection of ethnic instruments and percussion perfect for those evocative tribal styles.
