    Newly purchased Stylus RMX - a thank you

    Spectrum,

    I JUST did it - I went out and bought Stylus RMX (had to trade in my Kontrol49 to afford it) at Sam Ash. They gave me a great deal in both cases.

    I gotta tell you, the video tutorials are FANTASTIC - what a great concept. I am learning a ton by watching them.

    Obviously, I am super excited to get started, but since I have an important project to get done (12 scores) and need to get proficient FAST, I feel watching the videos 1st will be a big help (and has already got me a wealth of information, for example, on how to get everything into Sonar 5 (my DAW) and the drag and drop video just about made me lose it - "Oh My G-d" was every other phrase out of my mouth!!!)

    Is there any plans to have a hardware template for the Tascam FW-1082 (or do I simply use MIDI Learn for everything?), since that is the control surface I use (my Technics KN7000 is a PERFECT MIDI USB2 controller, but I don't think the mixer section is has - it's video - will work as a control surface, so my Tascam, which is obviously a control surface, is what I would like to use to control volume levels, panning, etc.)

    You think a template will be made for that?

    Also, where is the stylus rmx community forum? I found the Tech Support forum (after registering) and already downloaded all the updates and videos - but I see no true user community other than here. Also, are users sharing combi's or is that not yet started?

    Thank you in advance for your answers.

    Mike

    Awesome! Glad you're digging it! :-)

    Good. We plan to continue this idea and improve it over time. We think that the combination of the video tutorials with the searchable Reference Guide is the ultimate way to learn an instrument like this. The two methods of learning and accessing information really compliment each other.

    Not likely. There are literally hundreds of different brands/models of MIDI control devices out there, so we just wanted to get the ball rolling with a few of the most popular models. Those concepts can easily be applied to any MIDI controller that you have.

    The important video to watch is "Setting up a Hardware Controller"

    That takes you through the entire process of creating your own templates.

    There isn't an offical company forum or sponsored community. The new Tech Support knowlegebase has basically replaced the older rmxcommunity area, since we can update the info and links a lot faster....and it also gives you access to all info/knowlege on the whole product line in one place.

    Some users are sharing multis on the Yahoo group if you are interested...it's pretty active.

    Have fun! :-)

    From the produst line, the video tutorials, and their phone support Spectrasonics is setting the bar WAY up there. Please keep it up.

    Other companies please take note.

    Eric, Hi. I appreciate you a lot. Speaking of tutorial videos. Yes, the Stylus ones are excellent. I just watched the "Atmosphere Quick Demo" on the Spectrasonics site. I'm an Atmosphere and Stylus RMX owner. I wish there was some tutorial videos for Atmosphere like you have for Stylus RMX. I'm sure I haven't gotten to understand a 1/5 of what I can do in Atmosphere.

    Thanks...we'd like to do some more.

    We originally tried to do my Atmosphere/Trilogy Masterclass from this years NAMM show, but it didn't quite work out on the technical side....so we'll probably try to redo it specifically as a web presentation.

    Some fun stuff you can do. :-)

    The video tutorials are fabulous. If you own Stylus RMX and haven't watched them then please do. I am sure that you will learn something. If you are pondering purchasing Stylus RMX and are worried about its complexity be assured that the videos make everything easy to understand.

    I purchased Stylus RMX just before Christmas. I installed it then updated it to the latest version. I then spent the next day or so watching all of the videos.

    When I had finished watching the videos I knew exactly what Stylus RMX could do, and more importantly how to do it.

    I feel that these videos set a standard that other companies should aspire to.

    Many thanks Eric and all at Spectrasonics,

    Paul.

    Great!

    It's turned into an excellent way to communicate with a lot of people at the same time.

    Clinics and Trade Shows are nice, but you only reach a small percentage of the people...so this is a good alternative. :-)

    Just finished my 1st of at least 10 more scores with Stylus RMX - WHAT A BREEZE!!!

    It took me about 1 hour to complete an 8 track groove that I really loved using MOSTLY the elements and maybe one groove part - it really came together.

    Then I drag and dropped all 8 tracks to Sonar 5 (as the video showed me how to set it up and then drag and drop - man, made it totally intuitive and easy - exactly what I saw in the video) and then it was a matter of copying and pasting stuff until I massaged the groove exactly the way I wanted.

    Add some guitars to taste and viola - a finished piece.

    I will be making a website to display these songs, but cannot just link to them yet - I am under contract and they do not want others downloading these songs.

    I LOVE STYLUS RMX !!!

    Aye - way to go Spectrasonics! Apart from the already fabulously endowed RMX - its clearly the John Holmes of Audio Porn - the tutorial DVDs are a godsend.

    Conversely, Native Instruments have decided to charge £40 (about $60) for their tutorial DVD and thats sealed my decision to longer upgrade their products.

    We need RMX technology to evolve to incorporate a basic sampling and then we'd have the perfect all encompassing rhthym solution.

    unteil we want more - of course
