The Spectrasonics BackBeat - S.A.G.E. Xpander sound library adds a whole new dimension to Stylus RMX with super hi-fi sound and astounding flexibility. 4 world class drummers--Gregg Bissonette, Bob Wilson, John Ferraro, and Eric Boseman--contributed their vast talents in some of the most famous recording studios in the world.

Sometimes you just need that straightforward, no frills, clean and lean drum groove. If you do pop, rock, smooth jazz, or crossover, a pure live drum sound is absolutely essential. Even in today's dance and R&B, the tight and crisp sound of an unadulterated drum kit is pure gold. This is why the BackBeat drum sample collection may become the most important library in your arsenal!

Producers Eric Persing and Bob Wilson recorded 4 world-class drummers in numerous legendary studios with some of the best drum rooms on the planet. The playing is right in the pocket by L.A. drummers with legendary feels. The very latest recording technology was used to capture a stunningly hi-fi, yet very natural sound. Every groove has a unique kit and mix! The variety of drum sounds within this single sample library is astonishing.

The featured players include:
Gregg Bissonette (Santana, Joe Satriani, Don Henley)
Bob Wilson (Liquid Grooves, George Benson, The Crusaders)
John Ferraro (Larry Carlton, David Benoit, Albert Lee, Aaron Neville)
Eric Boseman (Liquid Grooves, James Newton-Howard)

With the BackBeat s.A.G.E. Xpander sound library, you can create your own complete drum track with song construction elements including variations, fills, fill bars, intros, breakdowns, ride and sidestick patterns, add-on cymbals, and more. Spectrasonics BackBeat lays down the perfect foundation for a wide variety of current styles. If you're one of those purists who insists on avoiding drum loops because you think they're too limiting, the Spectrasonics Xpander may finally change your mind. Stylus RMX has the tools to make every groove on Backbeat as spontaneous and fresh as working with a live drummer. For example RMX's exclusive Chaos Designer can improvise by randomly shifting or repeating hits inside the groove, as much or as little as you like. Plus, you can save variations as completely new grooves, so there's almost no end to the variety and liveliness of BackBeat, or any Xpander, when used with RMX.

With Spectrasonics' S.A.G.E. technology, using just Stylus RMX and your sequencer, you can change the drummer's tempo, his feel, the pitch of his drums, the time signature, even the whole pattern without affecting the live, fluid sound of his playing. Whatever your style, whatever your tempo, whatever your attitude, Backbeat and Stylus RMX will put these world-class drummers and their dynamic talent right in your back pocket.
