Cycling '74's new Cycles series of audio source libraries offers sound effects, ambient sound, rhythmic loops and incidental music for use by musicians, sound designers and media producers. The company tapped sound library pioneer Ron MacLeod, creator of the Poke in the Ear libraries, to produce and curate the Cycles series. With this new series, MacLeod produced a continuing series of "inspirational" sonic collections and used Cycling '74's Max/MSP, Pluggo and Radial.

The first volume in the series, "Sustained Encounters," comprises long, evolving environments and unfolding atmospheres. The Cycles series of releases are packaged as a dual-disc release created with a high-capacity DVD-ROM, as well as a standard audio CD for easy auditioning. "Sustained Encounters'" 24-bit/48kHz .WAV files are prepared for ease of use in film, DV and multimedia productions, and 44.1kHz versions are included for direct compatibility with music composition tools. This release also includes a sampling of 5.1 multichannel pieces. The files are looped end to end for laying down beds imported directly to DAW, playback in loop sequencers or manipulation by any sampler.

"Sustained Encounters" will be available in Q1 2004 for a MSRP $99. For more information, visit Cycling '74 at
