Professional Audio, Sounds and Sample News
Propellerheads just released a free update for ReCycle. If you don’t know what ReCycle is you most certainly have heard of its file formats REX and REX2. It is an audio editor which lets you cut a loop into slices and then change the tempo of the loop without changing the pitch. Almost all major DAW’s can process the REX format and will let you edit it right inside your song.
Hundreds of professional sample packs already include the REX/REX2 format for maximum production flexibility.
If you’re a ReCycle user here is what you get with the update:
- 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.
- 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 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- We have removed support for the Sound Designer II, Mixman and SampleCell formats since these are all outdated.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).
