Spectrasonics Stylus RMX Groove Module

Stylus RMX -- The Realtime Groove Module Featuring the Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine!

Stylus RMX is a completely new groove-based virtual instrument plug-in for Macintosh and Windows. Stylus RMX is the first product to offer the combined power of Groove Control with Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E. technology giving users dramatic new control over groove production and performance.

Spectrasonics in-house development team created the new instrument 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 7.4 gigabyte 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, and contains all the original material as well. The new sounds and grooves in Stylus RMX offer a much wider range of modern musical genres than the original Stylus. Mixes of grooves are broken down into individual tracks called Elements for flexibility and infinite combinations.

Fresh Kit
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.

'Xpandable'
Stylus RMX marks Spectrasonics first expandable virtual instrument, with a series of five new S.A.G.E. Xpanders. Stylus RMX 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 in Stylus RMX, 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--giving 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 made into a MIDI file, dragged and dropped into the host sequencer, and played back again for further editing by the user.

Stylus RMX operates as a virtual instrument software plug-in for Macintosh and Windows in all major hosts including: Apple Logic, MOTU Digital Performer, Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Steinberg Cubase SX, Nuendo, V-Stack, Apple Garage Band, Fruity Loops, Sony Acid Pro, Cakewalk Sonar, Project 5, and many other VST and Audio Unit host applications.

"I never thought that drums and percussion sounds could be that real on a computer!!"
Sound: I absoulutely, without a doubt, love this stylus rmx. I am now finishing a CD project, and I have used stylus on every tune. It has an amazing sound bank that sounds exactly like the real thing only on your pc. Feature: The most amazing feature for me is the chaos. This enables me to create drum fills and variations on grooves. I have used the congas, bongos, with the chaos feature and it is incredible. I would recommend it to anyone. The only thing I wished that it had, was some built in fills. It is also very lacking as far "ethnic" styles: calypso, reggae, latin, african, etc. Quality: It rocks! Manufacturer Support: I have called spectrasonics several times and it is almost impossible to get someone to talk to. One time I was on hold for over 1 hour! I am not making it up. If you send an e-mail, someone will get back in touch with you with 24-48 hours. They could improve - big time on their customer service. Overall: The only thing that makes me a rate it one step less than perfect is a) customer service b) lack of fills c) lack of "ethnic" or world styles of music
Style of Music: Calypso, Reggae, African, Jazz influences.

"The most professional multitrack drum design tool ever for a very good value."
Sound: Absolutely Amazing!!! There aren't any other products that deliver better drumsounds together with the fantastic effects! Feature: Its not only a huge library of 7,4 gig, it also includes a fantastic chaos designer, an 8 track mixer and a huge efeect section to add to all your drum parts seperatly! Quality: I use stylus RMX in live 5 and in cubase SX 3.0. The quality of this product is stunning. The only disapointment is that you can't use the effects from stylus at an other track in your sequencer unless you impart the audio file of the track in stylus. Value: I bought it for 220$ and I even think that it is way to cheap for such a fantastic program. Its really no money for all the things you get with this program Manufacturer Support: Spectrasonics just came up with stylus rmx 1.5, this is an extreme handy update that includes new effects, new kits and multis, new tuterial movies... and all for free. I love them!! The Wow Factor: This purple handy box is very sexy. The program is so easy to work with and inspirational that you have a killer beat within 5 minutes. Overall: I have search a long time for a program that is able to make those profesional sounding drum tracks, but I finally found it
Style of Music: Funk, Techno, Drum and Bass, film score and last but not least Jazzz
