OVERVIEW

Dramatic control over groove production and performance.

The Stylus RMX is a new virtual instrument plug-in for both Macintosh and Windows that combines Spectrasonics' Groove Control with Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.) technology for dramatic new control over groove production and performance. Spectrasonics' in-house development team created it from the ground up, with dozens of new features including the ground-breaking Chaos Designer, a completely redesigned multi-page user interface, a new core library of sounds, all with a focus on realtime groove creation and performance.

New Core library
The massive new 7.4GB core library in Stylus RMX has thousands of cutting-edge grooves and sounds that were created by Spectrasonics' international sound design team, and produced by Eric Persing. The new core library contains nearly triple the amount of sounds originally offered in the original Stylus, as well as all the original material. The new sounds and grooves in Stylus RMX offer a much wider range of modern musical genres than its predecessor. Mixes of grooves are broken down into individual tracks called Elements for flexibility and infinite combinations.

Also new in Stylus RMX are thousands of new Kit modules, as well as user Kit construction. The new sound menus have over 10,000 new single hits, all arranged in organized categories. Users can create their own customized multitrack remix grooves and kits, save them into the plug-in, and even share them with other Stylus RMX users on different platforms and hosts. It's the ultimate remix-oriented sound module for building grooves.

Xpanded
Stylus RMX marks Spectrasonics' first expandable virtual instrument, and this Xpanded edtion comes with a series of five new "S.A.G.E. Xpanders" libraries, Retro Funk (authentic vintage sound, feel, and classic grooves), BackBeat (live acoustic "straight-ahead" drum grooves), Metamorphosis (21st Century remix grooves), Burning Grooves (maximum impact, aggressive live drum grooves), and Liquid Grooves (unique acoustic drum and percussion grooves). It also can be expanded with existing Groove Control CD-ROM libraries and even REX files - which opens the door for musicians to utilize their own audio loops within the powerful S.A.G.E. Environment.

Chaos Designer
Of the many new capabilities, possibly the most innovative feature is the Chaos Designer. With simple controls, the user can introduce musical chaos into the groove, which allows it to have constantly evolving variations. This gives the impression that the audio grooves are improvising. The results can be subtle or extreme by setting the simple-to-use controls. A Capture feature allows the spontaneous audio chaos patterns to be turned into a MIDI file, then dragged-and-dropped into the host sequencer, and played back again for further editing by the user.

Not just for remix anymore

Comments about Spectrasonics Stylus RMX Xpanded Realtime Groove Module Virtual Instrument Software:

The new expanded version of Stylus RMX goes well beyond the original version. No longer strictly a remix or hip hop production tool...the new version contains great drum sounds ranging from slamming rock to quiet brush work and all points in between. The samples are outstanding and the interface is very easy to use. It comes with plenty of tutorials but it is really pretty straightforward for the most part. The groove lock feature is amazing and allows easy changes in feel, tempo, and even time signature without adversely effecting the sound quality. Price is high but the recording results are well worth it and it costs way less than a drummer and studio time. Highly recommended regardless of what style of music you play.

    This product is amazing. One day using it and my workflow has already improved. I have nothing further to say except PLEASE read the manual and watch the video tutorials that Spectrasonics has on their website! There's a lot of stuff here but it's worth it.
