New forum member and new RMX user here. Really getting into the product - it's quite a beast! Even though I'm not used to working with loops (sorry - 'grooves') at all I'm finding it pretty intuitive to use and get something going that has much more of a 'feel' than anything I've been able to produce as quickly using a pattern sequencer. It's a very well thought out app and seems rock solid too!
I must admit that I found the 'core library' next to useless for my needs. Everything in there is too 'processed' sounding for me. Maybe I'll get some use out of it in the future but I wish there was more basic acoustic kit type stuff in there. In the meantime I've bought backbeat and some of the stuff from Drums on Demand, both of which have sorted me out nicely.
Anyway, I've been through most of the tutorial vids and just had a few questions...
1. Edit Groups
This is all pretty understandable after watching the tutorial vids and I've been setting up my own custom groups etc. One thing that was confusing me at first though is that edit groups are per part rather than shared across the whole instrument. Is there no way to share edit group settings (and consequently an fx rack) across slices in different parts? Is the only way I can apply one set of fx to slices in different parts to route different edit groups to the same output and apply fx outside of Stylus?
I'm presuming there's no way to use the FX outside of stylus? I know it would be a PITA to make an AU of every single effect, but It would be really nice if there was an AU that acted as a stylus FX rack, that way I could mix and match the RMX plugs with the stuff I normally use. The distortion, filtering, and dynamics stuff particularly sound great but I'd really like the flexibility of using my own EQs etc at various points in the signal path. It's a crying shame to have all these great processors available but not to be able to use them elsewhere from my DAW!
The way of managing favourites is quite limited at the moment, ie no way to delete elements, merge suites etc. The documentation warns against buggering around with favourites from the desktop but I wondered if there were any hacks that worked...
When viewing the 'system performance' meter in Logic it seems as if Stylus is only using one of my machine's two CPUs. Is this correct?
