Propellerhead ReCycle

Video Description

No matter what style of music you're into, adding the right groove or loop can often elevate your music to completely new heights. Traditionally incorporating loops and grooves can translate into hours of hard work just to get the loop to fit your song's tempo and timing. Help is on the way from the Propellerhead's ReCycle which gives you full creative control over utilizing your looped material. Join electronic recording artist David Alexander as he shows you how ReCycle has revolutionized using sampled loops and grooves by giving you the ability to use sampled loops - like beats programmed from individual drum sounds - by altering the tempo, replacing sounds and processing them individually.
