Dance Midi Samples releases DMS Dimension
Dance Midi Samples has released DMS Dimension, a virtual instrument for Windows PC which gives you instant access to our professional quality 1.2 GB ROM library full of soaring trance leads synths, fat trance basses, insane trance FX, bright synth pianos and lush trance pads.
Our aim is to give you a comprehensive toolkit of tones which can slot into any trance or progressive tune. That’s why we’ve stuck to clean, powerful multi-layered sounds for every single one of the 128 presets. We’d be more than happy to use any of these sounds in a track ourselves: there’s no filler whatsoever. Check out the demos above if you don’t believe us: every single sound comes from Dimension (apart from the drums, of course!).
Dimension has a simple, fast architecture: amplitude and filter envelopes, a chunky lowpass filter, a delay unit and a reverb unit. Each patch uses two multisamples which are layered together: you can adjust the balance of these if you want. That’s it: there’s no faff; just instant, usable sounds which can be tweaked so they fit perfectly with the rest of your mix.
All of the individual tones used by Dimension are stored in the popular SF2 (SoundFont) format, which can be used with most VST sampler plug-ins. If you love the sounds, but want to do your own sound design using your own software, feel free to use the samples!
