PowerFX, a provider and digital distributor of loops, sound effects and music samples, announced Miracle Beats, a sample CD and VST instrument (VSTi) combination that includes the award-winning LoopMorph technology. With more than 500 beats and a unique VST instrument interface, Miracle Beats allows for complete creation, control and manipulation of beat loops.

LoopMorph technology takes drum loops and creates individual slices, and then automatically splits each element of the drum kit—hi-hat, bass drum, snare—and separates them on to individual tracks with each slice. This provides the user with control over the individual elements of the drum loop by splitting and combining and rearranging the elements, sounds and patterns of different loops.

Miracle Beats key features include autostretch loops to any bpm' preview loops in perfect sync with the host software; a Sampler mode; four stereo outputs (bass drum, snare, h-hat and percussion) that is automatically separated; switch an entire loop pattern in real time with one keystroke (choose between all 400 scores); instantly change the style and groove of a loop while keeping its sounds; change tempo without altering pitch; real-time pitch control on every drum element; real-time envelope control on every drum element, with attack autogain compensation and a gate effect; real-time reverse on every drum element, with automated shifting to keep the groove, even when loops are reversed; exclusive RMS Level features to match the dynamic level of one loop with another; four built-in stereo limiters; real-time Shuffle control enhances the feel of grooves; Humanize function reproduces natural feel; optional quantization of loops to perfect 16th-note placement; sample-accurate sync to host; export loops as .WAV files; auto-naming of exported files; VST and VSTi version included; intuitive handling; and sound processing of 44.1/48/96/192 kHz) and internal 32-bit resolution.

Miracle Beats is available for $99. More information can be found at the PowerFX Website, www.powerfx.com. For more new product announcements, visit mixonline.com/products_new_products/index.htm.
