The company recently released four other Xpanders based on their Backbeat, Retro Funk, Liquid Grooves, and Metamorphosis collections. The release of the Burning Grooves Xpander is the first time the popular drum groove collection has been available with Spectrasonics Groove Control development technique, that allows playing the audio loops in an extremely wide range of tempos with no loss in audio quality.
The Burning Grooves Xpander includes aggressive live drum grooves laid down by reknown drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. whose credits include Paul McCartney, Sting, Seal, Me'shell Ndegeocello, Chris Isaak, Steve Vai, k.d. lang, Jeff Beck, Joe Sample and Scritti Politti among many other artists. Burning Grooves also features extreme re-mixes of Laboriel's musical performances by producer Eric Persing.
Burning Grooves offers a diverse selection of unrelenting hardcore, alternative, power funk, rock & roll and grungehead loops and wide variety of tempos and feels. Each groove has a unique mix (edge, hi-fi, ambient, distorted, lo-fi, etc), and some have both HI-FI and LO-FI re-mixes. It is one of the only SAGE Xpanders to include different time signatures (3/4, 5/4, 6/8, 7/8, 12/8), and those hard to find Tom-Tom and Sidestick grooves.
Burning Grooves offers versions of the grooves played without kick drum and without snare drum for maximum flexibility in customizing the grooves to your music. This technique allows you to create your own kick or snare patterns within the loop, on breakdowns, and also makes it much easier to layer Burning Grooves with other loops. Separate fills and intro loops are available to help smooth transitions, and create a "live vibe."
The Xpander DVD-ROM also includes a brand new "Acoustic Groove Elements" directory of isolated kick, snare, sidestick, hi-hat and ride cymbal grooves that can be interchanged with loops that do not include kick or snare in them -- and can also be used to easily create custom grooves from the ground up. Over 130 new multi patches included on this Xpander take advantage of combining the Burning Grooves loops with many of the advanced features of Stylus RMX, like the new effects system and Chaos Designer. All the new patches and acoustic groove elements were created especially for the Burning Grooves S.A.G.E. Xpander version.
