Bundled Software Xcites

Focusrite and Novation have announced a new bundled software collection. They tell us that Xcite+ comes on a DVD-ROM filled to the brim with royalty-free loops and samples alongside a host of powerful applications ideal for getting the new user started, or to expand the experienced user’s creative toolbox. This new software collection will be included free with Novation's ReMOTE SL COMPACT controllers and the new nio 2 | 4 USB interface.
Ableton Live Lite 6 forms the foundation of this collection while Novation’s Bass Station bass synth, the Waldorf PPG Wave Lite classic synth and the Arturia Analog Factory SE plug-ins, combine to provide a powerful virtual instruments collection. Waldorf's D-Pole Lite FX classic filter plug-in is also included.
Drums and beats can be crafted with FXpansion's BFD Ultra lite acoustic drum plug-in and a demo version of the Guru sample player with library. Waldorf's Attack Lite analogue drum module plug-in also provides alternative drum flavors. Alongside these comes Mike the Drummer; a collection of 572 live drum loops ranging from 79 to 191 bpm, with loop lengths ranging from 1 beat to 4 bars, as well as extended freestyle solo sections. Individual drum hits and REX files are also available.
These drum loops are however, just the beginning. An entire gigabyte of royalty-free samples, exclusively compiled by LoopMasters, provide a selection of loops and samples that Focusrite and Novation say are large enough to satisfy the appetite of even the most demanding artist.
Finally, a free 1-year membership for i-dance (worth $25) is included. I-dance.com helps dance music producers to get feedback on their music and connects them to worldwide record companies when they're ready.
The Xcite+ Pack bundle is Windows XP, 32 bit Vista, Mac OS X and Intel Mac compatible.
