Propellerhead Software Releases Recycle 2.1

The Ultimate Tool for Sampled Grooves Is Now a Suite of Tools Optimized for Mac Os X

NAMM • ANAHEIM, CA • 15 January 2004 – Propellerhead Software, the Swedish company behind acclaimed products such as Reason, ReCycle and ReBirth, today announced the release of ReCycle 2.1.

ReCycle 2.1 is now a suite of tools that include 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) provide the user with everything they need for working with loops and groovesall the way from ripping Akai Cds to Rewire-ing fully edited and treated loops into Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic and more. In addition, 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 most leading applications). The effect of this is that the loop becomes tempo independent. One can edit its components freely to "rebuild" the loop, and the timing information in the recording (the musician's "groove" and "feel") can be applied to other (sequenced) elements of the music. Pricing and availability: ReCycle 2.1 is now available at Propellerhead Software Dealers worldwide for MSRP US$ 229/Euro$ 229. ReCycle 2.1 is a free update for registered users of Recycle 2.0 with a CD and will be available as a download on the Propellerheads website.

  • Owners of ReCycle 1.0, 1.5, 1.6 or 1.7 will be offered a $69 upgrade pack.
  • Owners of ReCycle 2.0 who purchased the $49 upgrade from a 1.x version will be offered a simple $17.95 upgrade pack.
  • Owners of a ReCycle 2.0 CD, who either purchased the full version or obtained an upgrade CD, can download ReCycle 2.1 for free.
