Propellerhead Software announced that it has opened the REX2 sample data format to allow file playback by any third-party applications. REX2 is a flexible file format for sampled grooves that is created by Propellerheads' ReCycle application.

To create REX2 files, ReCycle 2.1 slices up samples into rhythmic segments, making the loop tempo-independent. A user can edit its components freely to rebuild the loop, and the timing information in the recording can be applied to other sequenced elements of the music.

In the past, developers such as Steinberg and Emagic applied for and obtained a license to support REX playback in their applications. Now as an open format, any manufacturer can support REX playback in their applications. Third-party manufacturers are encouraged to download REX2 developer documentation. Implementing the Propellerheads REX2 file format in other applications or hardware is free of charge. Further information about the REX2 file format is available at www.propellerheads.se/developer/.
