Rio Grooves features an unparalleled level of flexibility offered by multi-microphone perspective balancing, seamless synchronization with your music, and preset MIDI files, all presented in a straightforward interface. For the first time, producers, composers and musicians around the world can access the most versatile take on Brazilian rhythms.

Simple SYNC to DAW - Rio Grooves! offers a convenient sync-to DAW functionality that conforms the rhythms to the downbeat in your DAW regardless when you begin playing within the bar. The Offset knob allows the user to change the feel by offsetting the start point in either direction.
Mic Positions - Each instrument includes three different micrphone positions (Close, Overhead, and Room) that you can dial in and out to fit any mix.
100 MIDI Files - Each patch has preset MIDI patterns assigned to keys C0 thru G0. These preset patterns serve as examples of the patch's rhythm, as well as providing an intuitive, ready to use version of the rhythm as an accompaniment or a starting point on which to build. The text window displays the name of the selected preset pattern and gives the user a MIDI file, which can be "draged and dropped" from the text window into the DAW's session.
There are 3 categories of patches:
Instrument Groove, Song Form, and Simple to Complex.
