Mr. Rahman is also an avid Stylus RMX user, “Stylus RMX is very impressive …it helps me to sketch a song in seconds and it sounds great. Most of my own library of grooves that I have made are in Stylus RMX now. I start composing a song by listening to these and getting ideas. Then I build up a rhythm part. When I have that groove, I bring in live players to record along with RMX. Then some of the live player tracks I process to blend more with the Stylus RMX sounds. Some of the live players are mixed just as they are. This is how I produced songs for the movie Slumdog Millionaire.”more
"I did not use a lot of drums on Silhouettes; it is a rather quiet album. Most of it is even pretty backgroundish, not as important as it is on albums like Moonlake or Eternal. I think it is one of those newer drum boxes I was trying, probably the Boss DR-880. What also was used is Spectrasonics Stylus RMX plug-in."more
Logic acts as his MIDI host for the three keyboard controllers (CME Pro 7, Novation ReMote SL25, and a Virus TI Polar, which is the only sound source) and a variety of plug-ins, both built-in ones and others such as Stylus-RMX; Arturia's MiniMoog; RMIV drums; Slayer2 guitars; UltraFocus; Camelspace gating effect and T-racks mastering.more
"Omnisphere and stylus RMX are two of my most valued go to plug-ins and they are sprinkled al over this album with the tight snares and drum loops from stylus RMX and the unusual sounds created in Omnisphere." In this [interview](http://blog.timespace.com/2014/10/roni-size-talks-to-us-about-using-rob-papen-synths-spectrasonics-and-izotope/), Roni Size discusses his use of Spectrasonics Stylus RMX and other software.more
"Since I’ve been doing the e-drummer thing for thirty years, I’ve amassed a huge collection of beat boxes, samplers, Wave Drums, plus all the loops and samples, and even several over-priced boat anchors that each still manages to do one special thing that no other box will do. It’s amazing: As useful as the V-Drums, ddrums, BFDs, DFH, Battery, Stylus, and Drumagog all are, I will still at times use an old box like the SDSV or Synare–or even a real drum…that gets processed."more

Ever boot something up and just have it be... fun? That's what Stylus is. It's pure joy encapsulated in a legitimately productive program - Stylus is as enjoyable to use as some of my favorite games. Runs like a dream off of my SSD, has hundreds if not thousands of awesome loops, and fantastic, rich drum kits that are GM mapped so you can easily pop em into a track. It's also 8-part multitimbral with 8 outputs, so you get lots of routing options in your DAW>
I tried to figure out the Stylus RMX after buying it with all its expansions and did use it extensively for a while but ultimately when I upgraded a computer I didn't move this program to the new one despite my love of Omnisphere and Trillium. And maybe someday I will give it another go but I was kinda waiting for Spectrasonic to upgrade it but hasn't happened. Some people swear by this groove program but so far not me.
