1. Introduction

Welcome to our Groovebox Online Advisor, in which we will attempt to unravel the secrets behind some of the models on offer today, and examine the range of features that each of them has to offer.

The single most important element in any style of dance music is the ‘groove’, a chemistry of rhythm for your song that can make or break its overall feel. There are many methods of arriving at that ‘perfect beat’ - CD loop libraries, drum machines, virtual drummers, or even real ones! A product group whose popularity has continued unwaned though is the ‘Groovebox’, which at the touch of a button can give you that often elusive backing to your next dance-floor smash.

Our Online Advisor extends to several pages - you can jump from section to section using the index below, or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
