"The Ultimate Groove Factory..."

"RMX offers several features that launch its creative potential into the stratosphere... Sound like marketing hype? It isn't. Chaos Designer works wonders for introducing musical variations to Groove Controlled loops...This kind of immediacy is something I haven't experienced from many instruments, physical or otherwise. Add to this a wealth of looped material, the ability to add your own content, and a variety of ways to customize it all through effects processing and musically intelligent randomization, and you have what could possibly be the ultimate groove factory. Period."

"Stylus RMX isn't simply a Stylus update any more than the Stealth bomber is a byplane upgrade...The core library sounds are excellent and varied, the drumkit construction facility is vast and the ability to surgically change loops at beat level in so many ways is fantastic….Having this degree of control over the source material means that there’s no excuse for anyone’s work to sound stale or similar to anyone else’s….The Chaos feature allows the loops to ‘improvise’ to head off boredom, and the effects section is so good that it’s a shame it isn’t available as a separate Stylus FX plug-in….Stylus RMX is a significant development in groove creation and manipulation, and the way in which it handles tempo and pitch manipulation along with the ability to individually effect, tune and process every single beat in a measure is really impressive."

"Massively Versatile..."

"It's fair to say that [the RMX library] covers a lot of possibilities - straight out of the box you get a top quality arsenal at your disposal. Add to that the fact that the RMX is a massively versatile, eminently useable, user friendly mangling engine for loading in your own converted REX beats (as well as countless other libraries) and you may just find that it becomes your first choice VSTi for grooving. Spectrasonics have made a grand job of reinventing the original. Excellent stuff!"

"...faultless on every level."

“10 review score = Truly excellent and pretty much faultless on every level - an Ultimate Buy. Products like this don't come along very often so grab ‘em when they do!…Stylus RMX is unquestionably the most powerful loop-based drum machine on the market today, and at this price it could well become seen as a studio essential….A must-have instrument for anyone looking to take their loops to a whole new level of flexibility."

"...Whoa! SERIOUS stuff"

"Whoa! Serious stuff - and in the right hands, pretty close to magical….Stylus RMX also lends credence to the conspiracy theories that believe alien technologies have been appropriated for use here on earth, but that's a whole other subject….Stylus RMX is a wild ride; this tool is just begging to be put in the hands of creative crazies who want to take loops to places that no one, and I mean no one, has ever taken them before….Speaker-thumping sounds, sure; and if all you want are some superb loops, that alone justifies RMX's existence. Then throw in lots of ways to use them - great. Fantastic effects... Even better. But when you can drag and drop MIDI files into your host sequencer, introduce chaos that essentially lets loops improvise (and capture chaotic effects that spin your crank), then set up edit groups to micromanage editing on a super-detailed level - the only option is an EQ Award. And a well-deserved one at that."

"Absolutely SHINES!"

"In a word, Stylus RMX is huge... once you spend some quality time together, it's like hanging out with a new best friend... If human evolution is definedby increasing levels of complexity as time passes, Stylus RMX shows just how far people have come since banging bones on split logs to make rhythms... ingeniously gives you total control of its Kits, Suites, hits, what have you, with such a vast web of possibilities... Inspiring, Killer sound-sculpting and effects capability... Overall, Stylus RMX absolutely shines as a remixing tool... When you throw in the low price tag, theexpansion options and the amazing library of sounds and grooves, Stylus RMX is a winner."
