Has music just not sounded the same to you since Miami Vice went off the air? Then you're in luck! The synth drums in Kong bring analog drum sounds back to your music.

It's a non-linear world, people! Media has become non-linear, reading via the internet has become non-linear, and thanks to Kong's Nurse Rex module now your loop library has become non-linear.
