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.

Each instrument includes three different micrphone positions (Close, Overhead, and Room) that you can dial in and out to fit any mix.

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.
