If you don't like the normal boring rubbish, don't go crazy, get 'Completely Bonkers'.
An inspiring and hugely creative library featuring drum loops ranging from 75 bpm right up to 150 bpm, Musical Loops from 70 to 135 bpm, Strange Loops, and an amazing collection of Ambiences!
"There's everything from lush angelic choirs to creepy backgrounds — I was immediately tempted to fire up my sampler and start composing a score for an imaginary film... when I listened to the samples I was, in the main, impressed. I think this sample collection would be a useful addition to your sample library if you like your samples slightly off-the-wall, and it might just spark off some creative ideas or provide that extra piece of ambience needed to add depth to the track you're working on. 4 stars." - Sound On Sound.
More info on the Producer

The success of these titles have warranted promotion to the AMG stable where it is a welcome and respected addition. ;-)
GENERAL: Specially laid out to work smoothly with Stylus RMX. REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that scan lice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection that is REXable. It does omit some samples featured on the WAV version such as the ambient pads that cannot be REXed.
