Cycling '74, a software company based in San Francisco, announced the release of Unnatural Rhythm, the second volume in the Cycles Series of audio source libraries.

Produced and edited by Ron MacLeod, Unnatural Rhythm consists of organic, extended-form grooves that provide an alternative to the drum loop genre. The sounds in this volume range from rhythmic undulations of Cyclic Waves to heavily processed Found Sound, industrial gamelan of Back Alley Tribal to the mechanical pounding of Contraptions. There is also a huge collection of syncopated Vintage Electronics culled from the Columbia University Computer Music Center collection of 70's-era Buchla & Serge modular synth systems.

These seamless end-to-end loops are prepared for direct import into any DAW program, playback in loop sequencers (such as Live, Acid, GarageBand and Cycling '74's Radial software) or manipulation by any sampler, vintage to virtual. These 24-bit .WAV files are provided in 48kHz for ease-of-use in Film, DV and multimedia productions, as well as 44.1kHz versions for direct compatibility with music composition tools. This release also includes 24-bit REX formatted versions of all applicable loops for use within REASON or any 24-bit REX-compatible audio sequencer. Unnatural Rhythm is packaged as a dual-disc release created with the audio post-professional in mind, a high-capacity DVD-ROM, along with a standard audio CD for an easy auditioning alternative.

Cycling '74 has tapped sound library pioneer Ron MacLeod, creator of the award-winning Poke in the Ear libraries, to produce and curate the Cycles Series. With this new series, MacLeod expands upon his previous work by producing a continuing series of inspirational sonic collections, while using Cycling '74's innovative processing tools-Max/MSP, Pluggo and Radial.

Cycles complements Cycling '74's software and music releases with libraries of sound effects, ambient sound, rhythmic loops and incidental music for use by musicians, sound designers and media producers.

 

Unnatural Rhythm is now available directly from Cycling '74 for $99. For more information, go to Cycling '74's Website at www.cycling74.com .
