   0 reviews  -  237 views
    RHIZOME SXE from FEELTUNE is the ideal hybrid solution for musicians, DJs and producers who want a standalone system for music creation. The unit consists of a control surface that contains a dedicated Intel i5 quad core based computer along with a 500 GB internal drive and an embedded 32-bit Windows 7 operating system. The controller provides Instant access to all parameters of the included RHIZOME HOST software, in addition to the user's VST virtual effects and instruments, and external MIDI equipment.

    The hardware has a good complement of controls, including sixteen velocity-sensitive pads, backlit rotary encoders and buttons and a large screen display. Edit, play, automate and modify instruments, effects, samplers and mixer parameters with the buttons, pads and endless rotary encoders in real-time, and once projects and arrangements are completed, export a master track or all of the tracks. Additionally, tracks can be imported into a favorite DAW for additional processing. The system ships with a batch of VST instruments and effects.
