"There are enough dangerous loops on Chemical Beats to keep squirrels falling out of trees for quite a
while. Even better, the samples are expertly organized on the CD-ROM, making it easy to pop the disc into
the drive and start recording. Great sounds, great formatting".
CHEMICAL BEATS features a brilliant new concept - the Beat Generator System. Here's how it works: first
you have a preset - 5 bass drum loops, 7 snare loops and 10 hi-hat/ride loops. Every combination of rhythm
works interactively (5x7x10=350). All of the bass drum/snare drum combinations are offered on individual
notes on the white keys on a standard keyboard.
On the black keys are the hi-hat/ride loops, or Timelines as they are called, and separate velocity
sensitive bass and snare drum samples. Because all of the loops are precisely the same length, you can
hold the keys for as long as you like, the rhythms will never drift out of sync. Using the Mod and Pitch
bend wheels, you can drop out the bass drum while the snare still plays (or vice versa), then bring them
back in again, still perfectly in sync - this is called a "Performance" set-up. The loops on CHEMICAL BEATS
have masses of attitude, huge drum sounds and FX crunched through advanced signal processors, mad percussion
loops, thunderous basses, radio loops, cutting edge synth & guitar FX, plus a vast collection of drum &
cymbal bits. One of the most flexible and awesome dance loop collections available.
