These grooves will hit you where it hurts.
The ILIO Skippy's Big Bad Beats - S.A.G.E. Xpander is a funkified library from groove guru John "Skippy" Lehmkuhl. Old-school attitude combined with totally new grooves, presented in ultra hi-fi sonic fidelity to light your tracks on fire. Great for R&B, dance, techno, trance, soul, or anything groovin'. The sounds are fresh, fat, and in-your-face. Tons of new grooves (66-145BPM) each with multiple mix variations, including full mix, simple mix, no kick, no snare, high-end only, old record mix, and more, so you can actually write a complete song with breaks and turnarounds. And with Groove Control your options for changing tempo, feel, and mix are truly limitless.
Skippy has programmed sounds for Korg since 1988 and has worked on tons of high profile sessions. This is his first sample CD--you gotta check it out!
At the root level, BBB is a collection of 34 high-fidelity stereo dance, hip-hop, and pop grooves. Making any of these loops "lo-fi" is as easy as running them through distortion, EQ, or effects boxes, if you like. These starter grooves are then broken down and remixed into alternative versions that you can use at different places in your song for rhythmic variety. Instead of only one loop that never changes in a 4-minute song, you can arrange the different mixes at different times, or use the full mixes for the intro and the small mixes for the verses. You can also use the no-snare version just before going back into the full mix version for the chorus outs and so on.
Instead of thousands of loops that have nothing in common with each other, this library has variations within the same basic groove. This way, you determine what mix to use, when and where, instead of being limited to only one loop for the entire song.
After carefully selecting the 300+ loops, every last one of them was put through a process developed by ILIO and Spectrasonics, utilizing proprietary software called Groove Control. This process literally explodes the library into millions of possible groove mixes, tempos, and attitudes. So you have the option of using the recorded grooves in the traditional way, or with the Groove Control method, or both! Only your imagination limits you.
