Nine Volt Audio releases Action Drums: Boom Jinx Breakbeat Edition 05/12/07
Nine Volt Audio has released Action Drums: Boom Jinx Breakbeat Edition which they say is an ideal tool for any type of modern music or media production with its combination of sound, feel, flexibility and organization.
As a modular loop library that combines acoustic and electronic drums, Action Drums gives users the ability to easily mix and match parts to create their own custom rhythmic beds.
Action Drums focuses on a tempo range of 110-160 BPM. But as with all of Nine Volt Audio's current releases, it is part of the BPM Flex Series, which means every REX-based loop can be used at virtually any tempo without artificial stretching or unwanted audio artifacts.
A Nine Volt Audio spokesperson had this to say. â€œConvey movement, excitement and power in your music. Whether you're capturing the energy of an action sequence, the experience of an exhilarating sport event, the high-style artistry of fashion or the elemental momentum of dance, Action Drums can provide the inspiration and the foundation for your composing needs.â€� What Nine Volt Audio say about Ã˜istein J. Eide aka Boom Jinx:
Both creatively and technically talented, Ã˜istein J. Eide has a well-deserved reputation amongst his peers for productions that showcase a stunning level of detail and subtle nuance.

SPECIFICATIONS
The DVD and Download contain nearly 600 loops in the REX2, Stylus RMX, Reason ReFill, Apple Loop and ACIDized Wav formats.
The REX2, Stylus RMX, Reason ReFill and ACIDized Wav loops are organized into 60 "Beat Suites". Each Beat Suite contains a full-mix beat, a full-mix beat without the kick, a full-mix beat without the snare, percussion/hi-hat mix and a loop for each individual instrument from the full-mix. Individual folders containing solo loops of kicks, kick 4xs, snares, hi-hats, percussion, hi-hat/percussion mixes and tonal fx have also been created for quick and unique beat creation from the ground up.
The Action Drum Apple Loops have been tagged for quick and easy loop identification.
Using the Action Drum loops within Stylus RMX requires the user to drag-and-drop only one folder into RMX's included S.A.G.E.â„¢ Converter.
The DVD and Download includes 30 Stylus RMX multi presets produced by Stylus RMX Core Library beat creator Hans Scheffler. The presets utilize Action Drum loops exclusively, providing an additional 30 unique beats.
Suggested tempos have been given to each suite, but as part of the BPM Flex Seriesâ„¢, every loop can be used at virtually any tempo while retaining their feel and groove (not applicable to the wav files).
