"Magic Dance" offers a large amount of content for Dance, Trance, Synthpop and other styles of Electronic Music. The Samples and Expansion Voices contain a wide range of trendy synth and drum sounds.
The Pages P1 - P5 of the Expansion Voices are offering a quick access to Synthleads, Hooks and Synthcomps for the right hand (RIGHT1, 2, 3).
The Synthpads (P6) can be used for accompaniment with left hand.
The Arpeggiosounds und Percussive Synths (P7 + P8) as well as the Drumsounds and Slice Kit loops (P9 - P14) are mainly useful for Multi Pads and the Arpeggiator.
The 180 Multi Pad Banks of this Expansion Pack are including totally 720 Pads – sorted by groups Mix Banks, DJ & Play, Synth Sequences, Drum grooves & Loops.
The Mix Banks are some kind of „Mini-Styles“. They can be used as alternatives to or in combination with Styles. The four sequences contained in each bank are optimally matched and can be played simultaneously. It is very appealing to add the pads one by one and thus develop a dance-typical arrangement live.
A special highlight are the Multi Pad Banks of the group „DJ & Play“. The DJ Phrases have their own charm, as they contain dance-typical chord progressions, reversals and sequences that would hardly be realizable by reharmonization. In addition, reharmonizable versions of the DJ Multi Pads were created. This PLAY Phrases are largely identical to the "DJ" versions in terms of phrasing and voice selection but contain no chord progressions. The "DJ" and "Play" registrations can be switched flexibly while playing. The odd Registration numbers are the DJ-variations, the even Registration numbers are the PLAY-variations.
The 88 Registrations of this pack are using exclusively the Mix-Banks. In many cases, they are using remixed Preset styles.
The Arpeggiator is used massively in the registrations. In the first four Registration Banks of this pack, the Arpeggiator is assigned with suitable Arpeggio Types. Flexible mixing between STYLE TRACKS and MULTI PADS is possible in the MIXER.
