The second sample library by Ian Boddy in the Zero-G SoundSense series, Elektroytic, brings this programmerâ€™s imaginative and unusual sound design skills into the realms of beats and loops.

These techniques include beat-synced filtering, phasing and flanging as well as lo-fi treatments such as extreme distortion and bit crushing. Further exotic manglings such as spectral analysis, granular resynthesis and textural morphing are also included. The collectionâ€™s "drum" loops are available at 100, 120 and 140 BPM and are separated into four categories: Drum, FX, Lo-Fi/Glitch and Percussion.

For maximum programming flexibility in usersâ€™ compositions, all 250 loops are provided in Rex2 format. The collection is also available in Acidâ„¢WAV, AIFF Apple Loops, Stylus RMXâ„¢ formats.
