Well, I was wondering about “prepackaged” drum loops, and remembered back in the VST 5.2 days I might have bought some of these, so went upstairs to look.
Yes indeed, I have 3 of them … two of them still in the original plastic wrapping!
“Straight Rock”, “Pop”, one more I can’t remember. I checked out the opened one … it had two disks of song files in VST .all format, using REX/ReCycle technology. There was a 3rd disk of audio for auditioning the sound.
And … wait for it! … a 4th disk … Cubase VST/24 CD!! Woo-hoo!
I guess I decided way back when to go with Jamstix instead … and now, though I’m at least a bit interested in seeing what they sound like, I don’t feel like firing up the old computer just to run SX3 (which I believe is necessary to do in order to convert the .all files to .cpr format). Jamstix can generate the drum patterns I need …
I guess I should just chuck them? Seems such a shame!
