The Beat Aesthetic
Everything in one place: this is the guiding principle behind the creative approach to The Beat Aesthetic. Forty-four unique beat suites for 44 songs, with each suite containing everything a track needs to get from start to finish in style.

In order for a song to evolve, contract and expand, each of the 44 suites present a core beat, all parts of the core beat broken into stem and solo mixes, a minimum of six fills and a minimum of six “alternate mix” beats that range from complimentary to textural to glitch laden to attention grabbing ear candy.

The “everything in one place” concept continues through out the library with individual folders containing solo loops of kicks, snares, hi-hats, “top mixes” and more for quick and unique beat creation from the ground up.

Combining solid rhythms with interesting sounds, tempo flexibility with tight organization, and originality with ease-of-use, The Beat Aesthetic will raise your expectations of what a beat library should be.
"For many genres of music the drum beat is king - so much so that if you were to take away all of the other elements the track would still sound full. This has as much to do with beefy production as it does with detailed arrangement, drum fills and clever variations. The Beat Aesthetic from Nine Volt Audio, then, provides all of these... Verdict: A large collection of tempo-sync-ed electronic beats that's well laid-out and a joy to perform. 9/10 and Music Innovation Award"

Stylus RMX Specific Info:

- The Beat Aesthetic does not require the user to convert the library using RMX’s SAGE Converter. Simply decompress the files and drag-and-drop “The Beat Aesthetic” folder into RMX’s “User Libraries” folder. Although it’s quick and easy, we supply visual instruction in the .pdf.

Kontakt 4 Specific Info:

- Intuitive interface controls include: “loop name” box (displays the name of the loop when key is pressed) convolution reverb (with 34 custom IR .wavs), saturation, stereo width, velocity curve, low and high pass filters, delay, and input/output quantization to lock loop triggering to the sequencer.
