Stark Raving Beats from Ilio is a set of hard and fast grooves, based on live drum kit performances, mixed and remixed by Chris O'Brien with processed electronics and percussion. Great for progressive, jungle and drum n' bass, pop and rock, the grooves start out at a tempo of 105 BPM and accelerates to 170 BPM.
Each groove comes with three mixes. Additionally, each groove comes with tightly isolated kick, snare, hat, room, effects, percussion and alternate parts. In all, there are hundreds of loops that can be mixed and matched in endless permutations.
For even faster tempos the user can utilize Groove Control, a process that cuts up the library into a huge amount of possible groove mixes and tempos. In turn this process allows the user to adjust tempos, so that they can sync up with a host sequencer but also goes far beyond mere tempo shifting. It provides access to the pitch, feel, sound and in many cases the mix of the groove too.
This library has been compiled to work with Akai hardware samplers and any other hardware or software samplers that conform to the Akai format.
