Propellerhead Announces ReCycle 2.1

New version gains additional utilities By Dave Nagel
Propellerhead Software has announced a new version of ReCycle, an application for preparing drum loops for sequencing. The new 2.1 release, currently in beta, is now being offered as a suite with two additional applications--Reason Adapted and Reload. It will be available by the end of the year for Mac OS X.

ReCycle prepares drum loops by analyzing and slicing them, then creates audio elements and embeds sequencer data into the REX file format, allowing the loop to become tempo-independent. The loops can then be rebuilt and their timing applied to other elements in applications that support the REX file format, such as Emagic Logic, MOTU Digital Performer, Steinberg Cubase and others. The new 2.1 version adds support for Mac OS X and also includes Reason Adapted and Reload. Reason Adapted is a streamlined version of Propellerhead's own Reason, designed for loop composition. It includes Dr. REX, REX2 file player, a mixer, effects, the NN-XT sampler and the Reason Sampler. Reload is a utility for importing Akai samples.

ReCycle 2.1 will be available by the end of the year for Mac OS X as a free upgrade for current users. For more information, visit
