ReCycle goes way beyond simply solving groove problems and cleaning up your loop act - it's a highly creative tool that helps you make the most of your grooves. In simple terms, ReCycle lets you do with sampled loops what you can do with beats programmed from individual drum sounds - like alter the tempo, or replace sounds and Process Them individually. ReCycle turns concrete-rigid loops into musical modeling clay, allowing you, the loopist, to do pretty much what you desire.
For a video overview of ReCycle, have a look at the ReCycle product clip in our video section, where our product specialist James Bernard will guide you through the program.
Start out with a regular audio file or sample, preferably one of a rhythmic nature. Load the groove into ReCycle, and the program will "look" at the groove, analyze it, and break it up into its rhythmic components. Each part is called a "Slice". The process itself is fully automated, but once the slices are there, they are yours to move, audition or delete, using the programs on-screen tools and controls. Other tools allow you to set the length, attack and decay of the slices, and to change your grooves' overall tempo or pitch, without one affecting the other! It's not magic, but it's probably as close as you can get.
