    "Just the basics" library of kits, loops, synth pads & rhythms

    When doing contemporary stuff, I've gotten by with the synth instruments and loops that come with Logic. My problems are:

    - The collection is huge; it's hard to browse for any one particular type of sound.
    - I find the quality to be middling.

    What I'd like is a relatively small, well-organized "go to" collection of contemporary electronic drum kits, grooves, and synth pads/basses/sequenced sounds. I'd prefer a high quality small collection to Logic's giant sprawl. I don't want to have to search through dozens of third-party sets. I also don't need extremely exotic or complex timbres - just a good toolkit for doing basic commercial stuff or occasionally supplementing the orchestra with contemporary timbres.

    So far Kore's sound libraries look promising, and I love the browser. Stylus looks good as well for the groove-related stuff. Does anyone have any opinions on these two, or any other products?

    Hi Mike,

    Stylus RMX Xpanded definitely is a great product to get some great grooves fast. Of course, it's not just a bunch of loops. You can manipulate the grooves by changing the time signature, adjusting the slices that make up the groove, add built in effects and much much more.

    I would also look into Omnisphere as well which is made by Spectrasonics. It has a fantastic browser to navigate through the thousands of patches it contains. This allows you to narrow down exactly what you are looking for and the quality is fantastic.

    I would suggest you check out the products of Loopmasters. Their work is amazing, and always inspiring and easy to use. (Moderator- I don't know if I may site that company by the rules, and I hope I don't offend by doing so.)

    Just scroll through the demos and listen to whichever one speaks to the style you are focusing on, and go for it.

    Good luck.
