Developer Digital Brain released Re:Cycle, a piece of standalone software to come up with endless variations of your existing audio files and libraries. All parameters, which include interesting options like spectral processing and dynamic lfo, pitch shifting, and an XY pad among everything else, can be manipulated in real-time to re-design your sounds on the fly.


Digital Brain Re:Cycle

Re:Cycle lets you select which frequency range will be processed and apply effects such as dynamic pitch shifting (change pitch automatically within the chosen range for as long as input is detected) dynamic LFO (change LFO rate automatically in the same way), file playback mangling (speed from 10% to 400%, reverse, loop, ADSR), XY pad (for live and automated parameter control), phaser, and randomization.

You can also load a pair of external plug-ins inside the application, blend between the dry & wet signal, save/load presets. This about sums up the functionality and it all sounds a bit dry on paper, but once you get Re:Cycle’s machinations going, you end up orchestrating madness.

Re:Cycle also lets you control software parameters from a MIDI device via MIDI learn. You can also manually select the midi channel assigned to each parameter.

As a dedicated sample mangler, Re:Cycle is plenty capable without going off the deep end. There are many plug-ins with similar possibilities, but software like this is never redundant. With a clever design in place, it offers a different approach to designing sounds compared to what you may be doing.

Digital Brain Re:Cycle – Price and availability

Re:Cycle is on sale for USD 69 and is available standalone for 64-bit macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 or later. There is no demo version. An user guide can be downloaded from the product page.
