psytrance-drum-kit-1-1015-samples-by-g-soniqueG-Sonique has released Psytrance Drum Kit 1, a collection featuring 1,015 one shot samples, including drums and various FX for psytrance and progressive house music productions.

The sample pack is spilit into 9 main folders:

  • Bass, which contains 24 short synth bass samples;
  • Blips and Clicks – 49 samples including blip noises, metallic hits, various clicks with or without delay, impacts and more;
  • Claps folder contains 71 processed and layered clap samples;
  • Electronic sounds, hits, fxs is a large folder featuring 139 sounds from SFX hits and Hi-Tech sounds to synth shots and ‘ethnic’ melodic ambiances;
  • FX comes with 76 items like alien sounds, acid loops, dark and spooky intros, fat and trap-esque lasers, FM sounds and much more;
  • Hihats – 109 closed and open hats as well as some unusual short, electro, hitech and hard hats;
  • Kicks features a cool collection of deep, fat and punchy kick drum samples, 116 in total;
  • Percussions is a set of various percussion samples mainly original ethnic sounds (see darbukah) but also some reinterpretations like Aztek and Amazon sacral sounds. Let’s not forget the woods, bongs with a twist of delay, the processed hammers, fat congas and much more (284 samples);
  • Snares – 147 high pitched electro snares, heavy processed electronic snares; dry and broken jungle snares, some liquid ones perfect for chillout and ambient, oldskool & psychedelic snares etc completing a wide variety of material to work with not only in psytrance but many other genres too!

At a glance, Psytrance Drum Kit 1 may look like just another sample pack, but when you start digging, its rich and sincere content may keep you busy for a while 🙂 Tons of audio material, there are over 1,000 one shots, without any compromise on audio quality. You can easily make a track only with this pack.


  • WAV
  • Royalty free
  • 1015 Samples in total

My favourite folders are Percussions which personally I see it as a source of percussive shots for any track, Electronic sound with its melodic synths and strange ambiances, Kicks- for the variety of sounds included and Snares (my number one!), a superb collection of snares for daily use.

I recommend Psytrance Drum Kit 1 for anyone making EDM music, it is a great toolbox for everyday use and its price is fair, only 16 € 12 € (25% off!) for something similar to a Swiss army knife 🙂

P.S. You can download a demo sample pack of 85 free samples on Psytrance Drum Kit 1 product page. Enjoy!
