    Imagine that you have a sample of 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. Usually it means that you loose some 'punch' in the loop.
    Enter ReCycle 2.2 and the smart way to make loops tempo independent. Instead of stretching the sample, ReCycle 2.2 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.
    When you load a sound into ReCycle 2.2, the program will 'look' at the file, analyse 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 2.2 turns concrete-rigid loops into musical modelling clay, allowing you, the loopist, to do pretty much what you desire.
    When you have processed a loop with ReCycle 2.2, the audio loop and the way its components are played back are completely independent of each other. The resulting REX file can be rearranged, pitched or have it's tempo freely adjusted. You have full control over the individual slices and can alter the timing or even quantise the groove – or keep the feel of the loop, but replace the sounds with your own.
    Use ReCycle 2.2 as a problem solver for loops: Load a drum loop into ReCycle 2.2, set a new tempo or pitch and save the results as a new file. Or load up any groove, and use ReCycle 2.2's on-screen signal processors: Compressor, EQ and Transient Designer, to give it some punch and distinction. Anything you choose to do in ReCycle 2.2 can be applied to your loop non-destructively and saved as a new file.
    System Requirements
    To take full advantage of the program, you need an application that reads REX2 files (such as Propellerhead Reason), a SoundFont compatible application, an AKAI sampler that supports .AKP files, Digidesign SampleCell, or a program that reads Mixman TRK files.
