My 2nd Stylus Review After A Few Years

Man... I literally love this plugin to death. I didn't love it at first and set it aside for awhile. It's dated and goofy in some ways. But I keep coming up with awesome beats with it and use it in conjunction with other plugins. I take back what I said before, you can get real dope realistic sounding drum kits. I use it in kit mode actually, but it seems like most people might explore the loops initially. Its such a shame they have not updated this software because it could be like an omnisphere power plugin for urban drums. It sucks you can import your own wav samples and stuff but the included sounds are banging. The effects are smackin. I wish stylus just released effects plugins too. Their tape saturator, limiters, distortion and all effects are worth being standalone plugins IMO. PLEASE COME OUT WITH A NEW STYLUS I LOVE THIS PROGRAM. You can do some really cool bussing in kit mode. Great for starting songs out with a groove. Then layer your samples up in your DAW. I take back my old review. The kits are laid out in the best possible manner for playing keyboard drums. PLEASE COME OUT WITH A NEW ONE ASAP SPECTRASONICS I AM BEGGING YOU!!!!

Best drums / beats ever!

Best way to creat new beats on the fly. The sounds / samples are amazing, but the best parties, you have the full set of loops, you add choos or select any combination until fully perfect.. Up to 8 parts for each setup, what more can you ask for. If you are into tweeting, you the full control over each parameter. Best investment!

Deceptively Powerful

I 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 including 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.
