Start the New Year by throwing your music for a loop. Purchase ReCycle during January 2016 for the low price of £79.00 and get every tool imaginable for producing fresh loops. ReCycle fully integrates with Reason and other DAW's, giving you the power to create and shape innovative loops, enhance your existing library, and explore new musical possibilities.
ReCycle – Total sample and loop control ReCycle is a creative tool that helps you make the most of your sampled material, loops and grooves. In simple terms, ReCycle lets you do with loops and phrases what you can do with beats and riffs programmed from individual sounds. A tool for quickly editing sampled parts, chopping up riffs, remixing and doing mash ups.
Load any sound into ReCycle, the program will look at the file, analyze it, and ” slice” it up into its rhythmic components. The file can then be rearranged, pitched or have its tempo freely adjusted. You have full control over the individual slices and can alter the timing or even quantize the groove–or keep the feel of the loop, but replace the sounds with your own.
A favorite among sound designers and producers alike, ReCycle’s REX format is supported by all major music software titles.
New in ReCycle 2.2Sporting a completely overhauled graphical user interface, version 2.2 of ReCycle adds new key commands, workflow enhancements and a new Online Help system—making Recycle even faster and easier to use. Version 2.2 is a 64-bit compatible application with full support for Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion operating systems.
About ReCycleImagine that you have a drum loop that you want to use in a track you are working on. The loop is 108 bpm and your track is 90 bpm. What do you do? You can of course pitch down the loop, but that will make the loop sound very different, and what if there are harmonies in the loop that you want to match to your song. You can also time stretch it. That will keep the pitch, but will make the loop sound different and often lose details and punch.
Enter ReCycle and the smart way to make loops tempo independent. Instead of stretching the sound, ReCycle REX files are sliced into little pieces so that each drum hit (or whatever sound you are working with) gets its own slice.
When you then change the tempo of the loop, the time between the slices is stretched, instead of the slices themselves. Full controlWhen you load a sound into ReCycle, the program will “ look” at the file, analyze it, and break it up into its rhythmic components. The process itself is fully automated, but the slices are yours to move, audition or delete, using the program’s on-screen tools and controls. Other tools allow you to set the length, attack and decay of the slices, and to change your groove’s overall tempo or pitch, without one affecting the other. It’s not magic, but it’s probably as close as you can get.
Slicing a loop also gives you individual control over both the sound of the slices and the timing. You can rearrange the loop, change the feel of it, replace parts of the loop with other samples, pitch it, and much more. ReCycle turns concrete-rigid loops into musical modeling clay, allowing you, the loopist, to do pretty much what you desire.
