    Hey everyone, I've recently been listening to a lot of DJ Shadow and RJD2, and that has led me to become interested in sampled music and beatmaking. I've heard a lot of great things about Recycle (I'm using a mac), but I'm not sure if that works as a standalone beatmaker, or if it has to be used in conjunction with another piece of software. Any help or advice on other software possibilities would be wonderful.
    Thanks

    No, you use ReCycle to process audio files, for import into a .rex supported DAW.

    Well that's unfortunate... I'm guessing it was designed to be used in conjunction with Reason then? Or can it be used with any other software?

    Recycle is not multitrack, besides Reason most Major DAWs support rex file import.

    Once imported you can do things like rearrange the slices, delete the ones you don't need.

    Trigger individual slice via midi.

    We used multitrack .rex drums to replace a drum machine on this song.
