    Thanks Ned,

    I couldn\'t find any pricing info, or where to buy. Where can I buy the Nugroove cd\'s?

    Big Fish Audio sells it:

    Do note, however, that, unlike the virtual instruments like Stylus, BFD, Groove Agent, etc, if you want to change the tempo of the grooves in Nu Groove RNB, you\'ll have to use tools like Live (fantastic application, and my first suggestion, even though it costs more than the library...), or your sequencer\'s built-in time stretch function, or slicing apps like pHATmatik, ReCycle, etc.

    Or......(drum roll...sales pitch...)

    You could just get Stylus.....

    :-)

    quite popular for these styles....a lot of adult contemporary/r&b/jazz artists use Stylus for exactly this purpose. Jeff Lorber, Phillipe Saisse, George Duke, Brian Culberton, Rick Braun, etc.

    Here\'s an example of Stylus in that genre from Philippe Saisse:

    and some others:

    A huge advantage of getting Stylus now, is that you get Stylus RMX for free when it comes out in September (an entirely new instrument)

    One really cool thing about going that route now is that for one price you would end up with BOTH instruments, thousands of grooves, hundreds of kits and the ability with Stylus RMX to add the fine E-Lab Rex file products to it, gaining all the functionality of the new SAGE technology.

    So that\'s a way to have the best of all worlds!

    Hi Eric,

    Have you determined an upgrade price for current Stylus owners ?

    Maybe it has been discussed before, if so, sorry i dont recall seeing it.

    Thanks! I cant wait (i use Stylus everyday on countless projects)

    Hans from what I have heard Stylus is the library for contempory stuff, and you might as well pick up Retro Funk whle you\'re at it. These libraries will become even more usefull when RMX comes out which can import old GC libraries.

    I have a Trition and I wouldnt buy it just for the drums, no way.

    Eric, I know if you buy Stylus now you get the upgrade for free but what if you wait till RMX is out? Will the price go up???

    No, but the original Stylus will be discontinued, with RMX taking its place.

    The advantage of getting Stylus now is being able to use it right away...sort of like have you cake and eat it too!

    Re: Where Do You Get Your Drum Grooves?

    Thanks for all suggestions. Stylus have been recommended by many. If I knew how to program drums well I would get Scarbees drums. But I also need processed kits etc.

    Ed, actually I was trying out the Triton LE because I liked the keyboard action so much. It was heavier than the regular Triton. What do you think about those drum grooves? I hope it is not too dance oriented?

    Any more suggestions?

    Where Do You Get Your Drum Grooves?

    I wonder which are the various options for getting ready-made contemporary drum grooves?

    I heard the Korg Triton LE and really liked it. I also heard Groove Agent, but wasn\'t so impressed with the (contemporary) sound (It wasn\'t properly hooked up though).

    What do you all use for contemporary R&B or adult contemporary sounding drum grooves? (not techno or such).

    I am an illiterate in this area.
