Stockholm, Sweden (December 2, 2003)–Propellerhead Software recently introduced ReCycle 2.1, a suite of tools that includes Reason Adapted–a Reason version streamlined for loop composition that includes Dr. REX, REX2 file player, a mixer, effects, the NN-XT sampler plus the Reason Sampler–and the Reload utility for importing Akai samples.
The combination of three applications (ReCycle, Reason Adapted and Reload) provides the user with everything they need for working with loops and grooves–all the way from ripping Akai CDs to Rewire-ing fully edited and treated loops into Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic and more. Additionally, ReCycle 2.1 can now leverage the advanced technologies of Mac OS X.
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). REX files can be played and edited by all major audio sequencers such as Cubase, Logic, Digital Performer and Sonar. In addition, they can also be played back by software sampling applications such as Propellerhead’s own Reason, Steinberg Halion, Emagic’s EXS24mkII and many more.
ReCycle 2.1 will be a free update for registered users of ReCycle 2.0 that can be downloaded from the Propellerheads’ website, and will also be available at Propellerhead Software dealers worldwide for U.S. $229 by the end of 2003.
