New discounted package includes RMX and 5 SAGE Xpanders 04/12/07
Spectrasonics has released a new product package called Stylus RMX Xpanded which includes the acclaimed Stylus RMX Realtime Groove Module virtual instrument software, with all five of the company's award-winning S.A.G.E. Xpander expansion libraries: Backbeat, Retro Funk, Metamorphosis, Burning Grooves and Liquid Grooves. The new package offers a tremendous value - saving the user almost $400 USD off the combined price of the individual titles. Spectrasonics sat that the addition of the Xpanders' 5.5 gigabytes of acoustic drum and percussion grooves enhance Stylus RMX's already massive 7.4 gigabyte remix-oriented core library.
Spectrasonics tell us that, since its introduction, Stylus RMX has become one of the most popular and widely-used virtual instruments in the world - offering a quick and easy way to creatively assemble incredible sounding grooves in all the popular host sequencers: including Apple Logic, Digidesign Pro Tools, MOTU Digital Performer, Steinberg Cubase, Ableton LIVE, Cakewalk Sonar and many others. Although the core library of Stylus RMX is focused on "remix" genres, the thousands of Xpander grooves that are included in the new package vastly broaden the musical scope of RMX by offering grooves and sounds for any style of music. Stylus RMX Xpanded includes:
Stylus RMX: Realtime Groove Module virtual instrument for Macintosh and Windows
Backbeat SAGE Xpander: Live Acoustic "Straight-ahead" drum grooves
Burning Grooves SAGE Xpander: Maximum impact, aggressive live drum grooves
Liquid Grooves SAGE Xpander: Acoustic ethnic drum and percussion grooves with unique processing
Metamorphosis SAGE Xpander: 21st Century remix grooves designed by producer Eric Persing
Multi Library: Hundreds of amazing Multi-groove patches that combine the Xpanders in creative ways
Bonus Section: Unique grooves from Vocal Planet, Distorted Reality and more
A total of over 13 Gigabytes of massive sounds and grooves
The grooves on these Xpanders were produced by Eric Persing and feature numerous top session drummers including Abe Laboriel Jr., Gregg Bissonette, Bob Wilson, Eric Boseman and John Ferraro. Spectrasonics believe that the wide range of tones and styles of the five Xpanders provide a versatile starting point for users to create authentic rhythm tracks.
Founder and Creative Director of Spectrasonics, Eric Persing, told us, "The RMX Xpanded package offers a whole world of sound and grooves for a new user. We wanted to make it an easy choice for music producers to get Stylus RMX for any type of music they want to create. With the thousands of grooves, millions of possible user-created combinations along with REX file importing and all the unique editing capabilities such as Chaos Designer, built-in effects and Edit Groups, there's a vast and inspiring sonic palette that awaits."
