A Groundbreaking Rhythms and Loops Combinator
In a generation of producers who make extensive use of loops in their music, there might be a sense of stale productions.
Musical loops can be pitch-shifted and time-stretched, but they can’t follow your music.
Your music ends up following the loops. One can cut, splice, mangle, edit loops to make them kind of unique, but repetitions of loops make music less interesting and exciting.
Requires NI Kontakt 5.8.1 (R43), XTYLES does not work with Kontakt Player.
Inject life and excitement into your songs
Enter Xtyles, with features that allow loops to follow your music and inject life and excitement in your songs and music compositions. Xtyles is indeed a collection of loops, but these loops can be turned from major to minor and vice versa. Not only can they be time-stretched and edited, but it all happens on the fly, as a result of pressing a button, or a key, commanding an improvisation or a total reworking of a performance.
8 Layers of Loops
Xtyles features 8 layers of loops which can be randomised at slice level. Prepared in Major and Minor versions, these loops will follow your composition, with melody, rhythm and sounds improvisations to spice up your tracks.
Xtyles generates loops combinations according to 8 pre-defined “Xtyles”, or according to the user’s taste, which can be stored in 4 user “Xtyles.”
The user can recall on the fly up to 8 “Scenes”, which include loops combinations and sounds choices, to create evolving arrangements, perfect for any song structure.
Color coded Keyswitches make it easy to trigger each loop and change Key and Mode (Major Minor) for each loop, even within subdivisions of the bar. The user can also command an “improvisation” at a press of a key, or change totally the scene, with new loops combinations.
Includes 640 Loops in Major and minor version, in 20 categories, 8 layers per combination, 8 recallable scenes per patch/snapshot.
