Overview

The Spectrasonics Stylus RMX is a plug-in for PC and Mac that combines the power of Groove Control with Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.) technology. The Stylus RMX was created from the ground up with features including the Chaos Designer, a redesigned multipage interface, a new core of library sounds, all with a focus on realtime groove creation and performance.

New Core library
The massive 7.4GB core library in Stylus RMX has thousands of cutting-edge grooves and sounds created by Spectrasonics' international sound design team and produced by Eric Persing. The core library contains nearly triple the amount of sounds originally offered in the original Stylus, and 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. Mixes of grooves are broken down into individual tracks, called Elements, for flexibility and infinite combinations.

Also new in Stylus RMX are thousands of Kit modules, as well as user Kit construction. The new sound menus have over 10,000 new single hits, all arranged in organized categories. You can create your 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 is Spectrasonics' first expandable system, with a series of 5 "S.A.G.E. Xpanders" for Stylus RMX. 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
Introduce subtle to extreme musical Chaos into the groove with simple controls, which allows it to have constantly evolving variations--giving the impression the audio grooves are improvising. 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.

The best loop creation tool

By Peter Neumann

from Sacramento, CA

These are the highest quality loops/samples and most user friendly interface I have found. The samples are killer right out of the box, and the groove module is very easy to work with. What I like most is that Spectrasonics has not prioritized unecessary bells and whistles over tone quality- these are top quality sounds for serious professional recordings. These loops add that elusive quality that makes your tracks come alive. Besides all this, it is a very stable plug-in, it has not crashed/froze once in almost 6 months of use. I couldn't recommend this tool more highly.
