Propellerheads Releases Recycle 2.2

We reported a little while back that Propellerheads were looking for beta testers for an update to the venerable Recycle, so we knew this was in the pipeline, but now it's available to the general public.

Here's the details:

  • The program is now fully compatible with 64 bit operating systems.
  • ReCycle 2.2 is also a true Cocoa program under Mac OS and works great with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
  • The main window has been redesigned, with new zooming and scrolling. Scrolling is smoother and you can now zoom in further. Some redundant controls have been removed and others added.
  • When exporting AIFF and Wave files, Record/Reason-style tempo information is now included in the file. Also, when importing audio files created in Record or Reason, the tempo information in those files is used for setting tempo and length in ReCycle.
  • The Waveform now indicates graphically what sound will be played back, by dimming silent sections.
  • You can now use the Q, W, E and R keys to select tools, just like in Reason.
  • The Preference dialog has been streamlined and updated.
  • Open Recent (documents) is now a sub-menu on Mac OS.
  • The status bar has been removed.
  • We have removed support for the Sound Designer II, Mixman, SampleCell and Akai (.aka) formats since these are all outdated.
  • The authorization system and copy protection has been changed.
  • Installation under Mac OS is now drag and drop (no installer).

Is ReCycle any good?

It's cool, but it's very expensive (IMO) for what it is. The demo is available on the website.

Thanks for this informative post. In case you haven't heard, Recyclebank has just teamed up with Greenopolis! Now you can earn both Recyclebank and Greenopolis points everytime you recycle. Check out this video-- I learned about the news here. http://youtu.be/TGSDH4L_qHA
