ReCycle is a creative tool that prepares drum loops by analyzing and slicing them. It then creates the necessary audio elements and embeds the required sequencer data to the specialized REX file format (read by over 2 dozen applications).
How is it done? ReCycle will analyze your groove and break it up into its rhythmic components. You are now in complete control and free to change the tempo or the pitch, without one affecting the other. And that's just scratching the surface.
Then what? Load the resulting REX2 file into your audio sequencer or software sampler and you can be the master of your grooves, once and for all.
Changes in v2.2.1:
Fixed an issue with the copy/paste integration between ReCycle and Apple Logic Mac only.
Fixed an issue when installing ReCycle 2.2 on top of ReCycle 2.1.x on Windows machines, which would sometimes lead to messages about ReCycle being unable to run when trying to start the new version for the first time.
The program is now compatible with 64 bit operating systems.
ReCyle 2.2 is also a true Cocoa program under Mac OS and fully compatible
with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. ReCycle 2.2 requires a Mac with an Intel processor. PowerPC is no longer supported.
The main window has been graphically redesigned, including new zooming and scrolling. Scrolling is smoother and you can now zoom in further. Some redundant controls have been removed and others added.
When exporting AIFF and Wave files, Record/Reason-style tempo information is now included in the file. Also, when importing audio files created in
Record or Reason, the tempo information in those files is used for setting tempo and length in ReCycle.
The Waveform now indicates graphically what sound will be played back, by dimming silent sections.
You can now use the Q, W, E and R keys to select tools.
The max length of audio files you can edit in ReCycle is no longer limited to five minutes.
New online help on Mac and Windows.
The Preference dialog has been streamlined and updated.
Open Recent (documents) is now a sub-menu on Mac OS.
The status bar has been removed.
We have removed support for the Sound Designer II, Mixman and SampleCell formats since these are all outdated.
The authorization system and copy protection has been changed, reducing the risk of having to reauthorize the program.
Installation under Mac OS is now drag and drop (no installer).
