Available in FOUR VERSIONS
ONE is available with no library, so you just use your own loops or with the choice of these bundled libraries. A generic CORE library, Metropolis the hip hop option or Infinite Groove is for those who prefer an acoustic drum loop library. Existing users can buy just any library to add to their existing version of ONE as and when they wish too.
ONE for simplicity
ONE doesn't give you hundreds of options you really never need. ONE encapsulates all the best thinking and technologies out there to make the dream loop player not only powerful but easy to use. You control what you want the loops to do and how you want them to sound and if you want to really get down to nuts and bolts you simply turn off the loop, export the MIDI file and do whatever you want to the data in your sequencer. We could easily have 'created' our own technologies by dressing things up or customizing content to perform amazing 'tricks' that prove absolutely nothing at the end of the day. The most amazing thing about ONE is the music you will create with it.
ONE for functionality
All the amazing feats some other virtual instruments perform all have a price. Their design is unnecessarily complex, they're unstable to use and eat RAM like there's no tomorrow. ONE is simple, powerful, and undemanding on your computer because it's based on solid, established technologies you're not going to be beta testing our supposedly clever ideas for us.
ONE for musicality
When it comes to loops AMG is the undisputed king. No other producer has the same pedigree and reputation for authenticity and consistent quality. At AMG you'll find not only live drums loops from some of the World's greatest drummers but also peerless percussion loops, programmed beats, hip hop, funk, dance, drum&bass, the list is almost endless. More importantly the quality is always top-notch too. No one needs more loops these days. Those sample producers who place more emphasis on quantity over quality have seen to that. Today having thousands of loops to choose from is more of a problem than a solution. These days people need to have the best and be able to find it quickly. ONE contains only the finest loops and has a customizable search engine so you can decide how you search so you find what you're looking for quicker and what you find has the quality you were looking for too. ONE offers a unique combination of power and simplicity and an interface that works with and for you and you alone.
ONE to bring everything together
ONE by AMG will offer you not only the finest new samples but also expandability, complete control and an extremely intuitive user interface. ONE will evolve as you want it to and become unique to you, a vital resource seamlessly integrating into the creative process and growing with you. All you loops whatever the format in one place, assessable in many ways and easily controlled, transformed and performed.
For the SOUNDS
AMG is certainly not the best known sample developer in the World these days, but the people who do know about AMG know our library stands comparison with any other out there. We have a huge and growing catalogue. Each Cd is unique, AMG doesn't get involved in the artistic process at all it's all about the CD's producer. A few CDs might have benefitted from a more 'hands on' approach but generally giving the producer full artistic licence pays dividends in spades. We have more 'five star' libraries than any other producer spread over more than 20 years in the business and more diversity than you'll find from anyone else. In general however our speciality is loops, we have a few other titles we're proud of but our greatest strength is our loop library.
For the INSTRUMENT
We aren't under any illusions that the task building a 'vehicle' worthy of our content and customers is going to be easy. However we fully intend to apply the same standards we demand of our sample library in this endeavour and believe this will ultimately ensure the desired result. We might well have the best specified plug-in when it's released but we already know things we want to add to future updates and will be looking for input from our users so we can add the features you want too. We intend to start with technology that matches the best out there and will stay shoulder to shoulder with the leading developers in the years to come. Our primary goal is for ONE to evolve over time and become almost 'invisible' - we firmly believe it's the sounds that are of greatest importance, we want ONE to deliver them to you and let you control what you hear without thinking about it, by 'magic'.
LOOP BROWSER
The Loop Browser offers you the ability to filter and sort by the parameters of your choice. This is extremely powerful and allows you to quickly and easily ‘focus in’ on the group of samples you wish to browse. For example you can search for for drum loops initially, then a particular producer if you decide you like their loops and then maybe a sub-set of those like acoustic loops to find the loops that match that criteria. You can search for loops by BPM in ranges too, based on their original tempo, in case you want to find acoustic loops without going too far from their original tempo maybe. There’s also a direct search by name feature of course. Another great feature is that you can click and hold on any sound listed to audition it instantly. It will play back in time with your host application too.
8 RACKS
ONE is primarily based around 8 rack units - each has a groove track featuring the primary loop, it’s groove and audio files of each hit or slice. Another ‘work’ track in available that has slices placed in the same groove as the master so you can place hits ‘into the loop’. This is ideal for replacing the kick sound in a loop for example. Finally there’s also a 32 track step sequencer on each rack for quick beat creation. Each rack has three main pages - Synth (with 3 sub-pages), Loop and Step editors. Virtually every parameter for the rack (such as volume and panning for example) and the synth parameters can be quickly and easily allocated a MIDI controller and be controlled in real-time for very powerful performance control. You set all the main parameters for the loop here. Loops automatically play on the designated trigger key at their original pitch but you can decide to move them and/or make the play over a range of pitches whilst staying tied to the host tempo. You can also switch the loop off and play the hits from they keyboard from the bottom up on consecutive keys. You can export the MIDI data to your sequencer to play the slices back if you prefer to edit your loop in your sequencer too. The choices are all yours. If you try control clicking on parameters you’ll often find extra features without having to refer to the manual, for example you can unload your loop from a rack by control clicking on it’s name. You can save your rack patches with edits as you go along as well as any multis you create. You’ll see the Multi display shows details of each rack as selected too, especially it’s original tempo which can be particularly interesting.
LOOP EDITOR
This is where you get into micro-editing your loop when necessary. Slices can be intuitively auditioned by click holding on them. You can edit each slice using the icons to the right or by control clicking on them. Mute, reverse, etc. hits as you wish. Slices can be selected individually or in groups and have edits applied to all of them at once to save time. Any edited slice changes colour so you can quickly see which you have changed. They can also have their volume, pitch and panning edited too. Expose the additional ‘work track’ and use this as a great place to try out your ideas. Almost anything is possible, maybe you want to apply FX to a snare within a loop for example - just load the same loop into another rack after muting the snare in the first. Mute everything but the snare on the new track and apply the FX to that rack. Pretty much everything you can think of can be done quickly and easily - edit the whole loop, ‘explode’ the loop and edit elements individually or apply different FX or real-time controllers to each element. There are almost unlimited possibilities. You'll usually only need one instance of ONE, but if you need more… No problem. Create a new one and double your options - ONE has a very low CPU drain so your computer won't grind to a halt.
STEP-TIME EDITOR
The step-time editor is a TR-styled, easy-to-use beat maker which is cool enough by itself. It has 32 slots to allocate hits to and for each to be programmed. However it’s also a really great way to collect your favourite hits too. You can either save them as kits or by type. So whenever you need a great kick, snare or electro kit you can always get a set of hits you ‘made earlier’. Even if you never step sequence you should get in the habit of building your own ‘hit sets’ so when you load a loop with a killer snare you add it to your snare set. Next time you load a loop that needs a killer snare load them up on another rack, find the hit and paste it into your loop and you’re sorted. The more you use ONE the more you'll get back from it. Each hit in a slot can be edited too so you can pitch that snare up a bit if it needs it and it changes colour to remind you that you have done it too. You may decide to just build a huge step sequence but most users will probably use it to add a quick kick pattern ‘over the top’ of an existing loop within one rack. You may prefer to ‘spread it out’ onto a dedicated track and have the option to apply FX, etc. to each element, the choice is yours...
FX PROCESSORS
ONE offers 4 high quality FX processors with a wide range of FX patches that you can edit and save as you wish. FX1 and 2 are inserts, 3 and 4 are on sends (also available to the output of FX 1 and 2) so you have quite a decent amount of on-board FX processing power. You can load as many or as few as you need. If you need more than 4 simply create a new instance of ONE and get 4 more. Once again a lot of FX parameters can be controlled in real-time using MIDI controllers and therefore you can often ‘get away’ with simply adjusting parameters as necessary. As you can see there are a huge range of possibilities available for enhancing your loops with the FX alone. Any FX with tempo-related parameters like delays will also automatically sync to the host tempo as the loops do too of course. When they're not being used they don't trouble the CPU either, so you can go crazy without fear.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL...
ONE is not at all CPU intensive so you can easily employ more than one instance of it if you need to access more than 8 racks at any one time. This is partly the result of lots of clever ‘under the hood’ features such as FX only working when they’re actually being used.

Probably the greatest thing about ONE though is the range of
SCALABLE CREATIVITY available. Most users will simply load and replay loops in time and pitch maybe making a few basic edits very quickly whilst others will hone their loops to the nth degree micro-editing each beat, FX and real-time controllers to create something a million miles away from the loops originally used.

Sound On Sound Review
"simple to use...comprehensive...some excellent options for manipulating slices...ONE behaved itself impeccably...fully load several instances of ONE and the Performance Meter barely gave a flutter...the user interface is straightforward, and AMG have struck a sensible balance between the creative options offered and the level of complexity...for loop-heads everywhere, it is well worth checking out." - Sound On Sound
MacUser Review
"On this showing, AMG is fairly entitled to consider ONE “the complete loop solution. - 4 out of 5 Mice.” - MacUser
Good review
Video Review from Producer's Edge
Future Music Review
CONCLUSION - "ONE is undoubtedly a very useful tool. With a decent library onboard, the promise of future expansion packs, the easy addition of your own collection and creative control over every slice, ONE pretty much covers most people's looping needs. It's integrated, cross-platform, multi-sequencer-friendly approach deserves to win ONE new friends, and the hidden depths help curb the interface bloat of some of its competitors. Nice ONE.

ONE Optional Extras
Although you can use ONE with just a suitable Mac or PC to get the most from it you really needs to have your computer set up for music use. This basically means you need to add a suitable sound system to do it's justice and a keyboard to trigger events. Have these basic essentials and you're fine, ONE doesn't need anything beyond these basics to get the most from it.
