Propellerhead ReCycle 2.1 Audio Editing Software

Propellerhead brings you ReCycle 2.1—the ultimate toolkit for sampled grooves, giving you full creative loop control. ReCycle is a highly creative tool that helps you make the most out of your grooves, letting you do with sampled loops what you can do with beats programmed from individual drum sounds.

Alter tempo, or replace sounds and process them individually; ReCycle turns concrete loops into musical clay allowing you to mold and sculpt them to your hearts desire.

Load audio files or samples into ReCycle and the program analyzes the groove and, by an automated process, breaks it into rhythmic components called “slices.” Once the slices are created you can move, audition, or delete using the array of on-screen tools and controls.

Automatically isolate and extract sounds from long sample and use the feel of the groove to quantize other MIDI recordings. The tools in ReCycle allow you to set the length, attack, and decay of individual slices and even let you alter the groove’s overall tempo or pitch without one adjustment affecting another. Once you have your groove set, bring it into a song.

From here the procedure differs depending on your equipment and preferred methods. You can use ReCycle as a loop problem solver by loading a drum loop into ReCycle, set a new tempo or pitch, and save the results as a new file, or load up a groove and use on-screen signal processors like the compressor, EQ and Transient Designer to give it a new feel. Then, you can import your sliced up loop into Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Pro Tools or other sequencers supporting REX2 files. You can use the Envelope, Transient Shaper and EQ to energize loops, send different sounds to different sampler outputs or audio channels for individual processing and automatically normalize sound levels. To use your recycled loops in a REX2-compatible software sampler like NN-XT and Dr. Rex modules in Reason, just follow the same procedure.

ReCycle gives you total loop control allowing you take sampled loops, flip and twist them, then regurgitate them into an entirely new creation. With Propellerhead’s ReCycle, you will become the Dr. Frankenstein of loops. Not just chopping them up and putting them together, but bringing them to life! Oh the humanity!!!
