Propellerhead Software today announced the release of ReCycle 2.1, a new version of its 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), the Reload utility for importing Akai samples, and ReCycle for preparing drum loops. “The combination of three applications provide the user with everything they need for working with loops and grooves — all 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 sells for US$229.
