by Greg Aldridge from North Bend, ORI got this as a birthday present in January 2013. I finally got a chance to dig into it. This is a very deep plugin that allows you to work with drum grooves in several different ways up to and incl... read more [+]uding midi editing in your DAW. You can edit grooves in the slice mode, trigger with a midi controller in the groove mode, process with a huge effects rack, change the feel, pitch, and time signature, import REX files, easily assign parameters to control surfaces for automation, run in stereo or multi-timbral mode and process each drum or loop separately, and much more. If you own Omnisphere or Trilian there is more. Spectrasonics is a top shelf company. Their instructional videos on their site are helpful, the product has a complete manual and first and foremost, you can get meanigful help from actual English speaking, knowledgeable staff people. They're prompt and helpful. This is a great piece of software from a great company, with excellent customer service. It doesn't get any better than this. close [-]

Amazing drum sounds even 6 years later!
by fromRMX is a fairly old product by VST standards, but still ROCKS. For my money it still has some of the phattest drums out there, dripping with charisma and character.

The majority of the drum sounds are of an electronic nature, though the expansion packs fill out the acoustic end of things. The FX are great as well, and the sounds are very tweakable, everything from filter/pitch/volume envelopes to the Chaos Designer.

All in all, even approaching $400 this is still pretty great value for the money. You can buy lots of mediocre loop/one-shot drum packs in the quest for phat drums and percussion, or get Stylus RMX and be happy! close [-]
How'd I ever work without it?

A couple years later I finally upgraded to the RMX Xpanded version and I don't know why I ever went without it in the first place.

First of all the drum sounds are fantastic, very cinematic. Some are huge, some are middle-ground and others are clicky; there's something for any type of music you're working on.
Secondly it's VERY stable. In fact, it's the most stable instrument plug-in I own. Even with every slot filled, FX on some of the slots and aux's and the Chaos tool on (which is pretty sweet) it didn't choke or crash ProTools. I can honestly say I use this plug-in every day on both sound design and music; it's extremely flexible! When people ask me what are the main plug-ins I recommend and couldn't live without, Stylus is on the list. close [-]
