Featuring the Spectrasonics Advanced
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.
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!
Stylus RMX marks Spectrasonics' first expandable virtual instrument,
with a series of five new " " 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. S.A.G.E. Xpanders
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.
