Nine Volt Audio releases Chroma Rex: Electronic Edition
Nine Volt Audio has released Chroma Rex: Electronic Edition, a collection of 396 loops designed to allow musicians to trigger a variety of chromatic riffs from their favorite sampler or loop player to create melodies and tempo-synced chord progressions – all while staying locked to the groove of their track.
Using 33 different sounds from Nine Volt Audio’s latest release Melodic REX: Electronic Edition, Chroma Rex provides 33 sets of loops based around octave and octave+fifth patterns, making every loop “chordally-ambiguos” and flexible enough to create leads or tonal backdrops. And as part of Nine Volt Audio’s BPM Flex Series, every REX-based loop can be used at virtually any tempo without artificial stretching or unwanted audio-artifacts.
Chroma Rex: Electronic Edition features
- 396 REX2 files organized into 21 suites covering a tempo range of 80-133 BPM. Using the loops within Stylus RMX requires the user to drag-and-drop only one folder into RMX’s included S.A.G.E. Converter.
- 13 combo suites that present an “A” and “B” loop group. Loops in combo suites play with and counter to one another creating multi-part musical passages and the ability to create fuller sounding mixes.
- All loop file names identify the musical key and tempo.
Chroma Rex is available as a digital download (also in ACIDized Wav and Apple Loop formats) through December 25th for $9.99 USD.
Proceeds from all sales of Chroma Rex during this time will be donated to HomeSafe – The mission of HomeSafe is to work to end domestic violence by providing a safe place for survivors and their children, by helping survivors explore and develop alternatives to living in violent homes, and by working to change the systems and institutions that condone and support violence. HomeSafe is located in Tennessee.
