this is a MUST HAVE vsti. simply the best drum plugin ever created. using it since day one even today in december 2019.Read Review
You can buy Logic Pro 9 cheaper and it comes with more loops and drum kits than RMX.
That alone is a deal breaker. One of the worst investment I've made.. At the moment it really is outdated.
And also now I now the quality of the support also: It's been a month when I contacted Spectrasonics support and asked if I can sell my license. They are "reviewing my case". They think I don't fully know how to use the plugin. Just telling that they have a great future ahead for all products.
My advice is to avoid Stylus RMX at the moment. If they drop the price to 99 dollars, then CONSIDER.
Original review in 2009:
What can I say... I too started using loops.
I bought Stylus RMX xpanded about a year ago and have found myself using it quite a lot. Perhaps lately I've used it mostly on some shakers, congas spicing up the backing track in various ways and those kind of little things but still. Very fast and effective way to do it.
Also for cinematic / action sequence music it's very good and has some great presets. And overall the presets sound very good.
User inteface is clear. I think the "graphics" could be more appealing for eye but it does the job.
I don't see anything special about Spectrasonics hyped "Groove control" or in the way RMX handles the tempo change. For example if slowed down to very slow tempo. You can clearly hear the slices starting and ending as you would imagine of course.
You can use Stylux RMX as a loop player where you can have 8 loops running simultaneously in MULTI mode.
Or you can use it as a drum sample player in KIT mode where you can construct your own 8-part kit from the Stylus RMX own library.
Importing own samples is not an option once again. Fortunately the onboard library is pretty big.
Never needed customer support really. Crashed 1 or 2 times.
Value for money... Well I think it could be a bit less expensive. Maybe 199 eur is more realistic for the whole pack imho.
