ReCycle is an advanced audio application whose purpose is to help you manage sampled loops by altering the tempo, replacing sounds and processing them individually.
The layout is well organized and gives you full control over a series of playback parameters and special effects. Each audio groove added in the working environment is automatically processed and decomposed into several rhythmic components. The files are sliced into several small pieces so that each sound gets its individual slice.
A graphical representation of the groove is also revealed in the main window with the aid of a waveform that features editing capabilities.
ReCycle offers you the freedom to work with each individual slice of an audio file. You may move or delete them, set the length, attack and decay of slices, and alter the overall tempo or pitch.
Furthermore, the program gives you full control over both the sound of the slices and timing. You may modify the loop, replace parts of the loop with other samples, and pitch audio data.
The utility allows you to cut, copy or paste the selected item, undo or redo your actions, scroll during playback, normalize the whole file or each individual slice, change the sample rate and bit depth, crop the loop, remove DC, and re-analyze the audio data.
There’s support for several special effects that you can make use of, namely envelope, transient and EQ. You can turn them on or off and select between several audio presets for each special effect.
Manual adjustments are also on the feature list in case the preset options do no satisfy your needs. For example, when it comes to working with the envelope effects, you can alter the attack, decay and stretch. ReCycle lets you save the edited audio files to MID, AIF, WAV, SF2 or AKP file format.
An overall efficient audio application
In conclusion, ReCycle provides a user-friendly layout and a set of useful features for helping you make the most out of your sampled grooves by editing and mixing them until you get the desired loops.
