Ilio Skippy's Big Bad Beats SAGE Xpander
Plugin for Spectrasonics Stylux RMX
From the mind of groove guru John "Skippy" Lehmkuhl comes Skippy's Big Bad Beats. This funkified library combines old school attitude with totally new grooves, presented in ultra hi-fi sonic fidelity to light your tracks on fire. Great for R n' B, dance, techno, trance, soul, or anything requiring movin' groovin'. Not just another remixed loop library, BBB gives you tons of new grooves (66BPM - 145BPM) each with multiple mix variations, including full mix, simple mix, no kick, no snare, high-end only, old record mix and more, so you can actually write a complete song with breaks and turnarounds. And with Groove Control™ your options for changing tempo, feel and mix are truly limitless.
The sounds are fresh, fat and in-your-face. The grooves will hit you where it hurts.
Skippy has programmed sounds for Korg since 1988 and has worked on tons of high profile sessions, on both coasts, showing off his groove skills. This is his first Sample CD and we know it won't be his last. You gotta check it out!
At the root level, BBB is conceived as a collection of 34 high-fidelity stereo dance, hip hop and pop grooves. Making any of these loops "lo-fi" is as easy as running them through distortion, EQ or effects boxes, if you like. These starter grooves are then broken down and remixed into alternative versions that you can use at different places in your song for rhythmic variety. Instead of only one loop that never changes in a four-minute song, with Big Bad Beats, you can arrange the different mixes at different times, or use the full mixes for the intro and the small mixes for the verses. You can also use the no-snare version just before going back into the full mix version for the chorus outs, and so on.
Instead of making 1,700 loops that have nothing in common with each other, this library has variations within the same basic groove. This way, you determine what mix to use, when and where, instead of being limited to only one loop for the entire song.
After carefully selecting the 300+ loops, every last one of them was put through a process developed by ILIO and Spectrasonics, utilizing proprietary software, called Groove Control™. This process literally explodes the library into millions of possible groove mixes, tempos and attitudes. So you have the option of using the recorded grooves in the traditional way, or with the Groove Control method, or both!
Enhance the variety of choices for the newly released Stylus RMX virtual groove instrument. S.A.G.E. Xpanders on DVD-ROM are based on award-winning collections from Spectrasonics and can be easily added to Stylus RMX's already massive core library.
All S.A.G.E. Xpanders include a special bonus section, which has hundreds of interesting grooves from Spectrasonics' Vocal Planet, Bizarre Guitar and Distorted Reality libraries. Each Xpander also includes a unique set of creative Stylus RMX Multi patches that take advantage of the incredible S.A.G.E. (Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine) features of Stylus RMX and show the potential of the Xpander when used in combination with the RMX Core Library and the Bonus section.
