SPECTRASONICS STYLUS RMX XPANDED
Stylus RMX Xpanded is an
award-winning, industry standard groove-based virtual instrument
plug-in. Stylus RMX Xpanded 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 control over groove
production and performance. Spectrasonics’ in-house development team
created the instrument from the ground up, with dozens of innovative
features including the ground-breaking Time Designer®, Chaos Designer®, a
completely redesigned multi-page user interface, a legendary core
library of sounds, all with a focus on realtime groove creation and
performance. RMX quickly became and remains an industry standard tool of
most top composers and music producers.
Of the many remarkable capabilities in Stylus RMX Xpanded, possibly the most innovative features are the Time Designer® and 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. The Time Designer feature is unmatched in any other rhythm software and allows realtime changing of audio grooves to any time signature, feel or pattern - an infinite creative tool!
The highly acclaimed core library in Stylus RMX Xpanded has thousands of cutting-edge grooves and sounds that were 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 contains all the original material as well. The sounds and grooves in Stylus RMX Xpanded 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 introduced in Stylus RMX Xpanded 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 Xpanded users on different platforms and hosts. RMX now even comes with 500 Multi grooves.
Xpanded and Xpandable

Environment.
