OUR PART # STYLUS-RMX-XPANDED
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 Controlâ„˘ with Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.â„˘) technology giving users dramatic new control over groove production and performance.
Spectrasonicsâ€™ in-house development team created the new instrument from the ground up, with dozens of new features including the ground-breaking Chaos Designerâ„˘, 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 Spectrasonicsâ€™ 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.
Also new in Stylus RMX are thousands of new Kit modules, 250 Kit patches, as well as user Kit construction....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. RMX 1.5 even comes with 500 new Multi grooves!
Of the many new capabilities in Stylus RMX, possibly the most innovative feature is the Chaos Designerâ„˘. With simple controls, the user can introduce musical Chaos into the groove, which allows it to have constantly evolving variationsâ€” 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.
Because the Stylus RMX plug-in is extremely versatile, we have listed two sets of System Recommendations: one for using a single part (which can have up to 60 grooves on a single channel), and another for using RMX as a multitimbral module which allows hundreds of grooves on multiple channels, multiple simultaneous effects, access to multi patches and the use of the special Kit Mode.
