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!!!!
