GENERAL: REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that can slice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection that is REXable. 411 REX2 files compressed into 105 megs.
