Version 4.1 of LinPlug's RM IV Includes 2700 MIDI Beats
August 25, 2004
LinPlug has announced version 4.1 of its RM IV drum synth and sample module. This new release includes over 2700 MIDI beats, specially designed for use with the RM IV.
Chicago-based Groove Monkee, a developer of professional MIDI products, has licensed parts of his MIDI beats collection to LinPlug. This collection of 2200 beats covers 24 different styles of music including Rock, Blues, Funk, Hip Hop, and R&B.
As well as this, UK-based Groove Criminals have added a further 450 House, Techno, Urban and Breakbeat beats. Finally, Kohlekeller Studio from Germany handcrafted a collection of Rock beats specially designed for the Kohlekeller Kits which are included with the RM IV.
To make using these MIDI beats easier, the RM IV has been enhanced and now includes a MIDI browser which enables simple and fast previewing of the included beats. The beats are played back by the RM IV in sync with the host software and can easily be moved to the host's MIDI tracks via "drag and drop".
Finally, 100 new sample-based Kits will be included with the RM IV. These new Kits have been created primarily for contemporary music styles. This means that the RM IV now comes with more than 270 complete drum kits (including more than 4200 different sounds) and over 2700 MIDI beats.
