Our friends at Propellerhead Software have announce the upcoming Reason 5 and Record 1.5 updates. And, for five days (beginning May 24), they’ll be announcing a new feature every day. For May 24: The upgraded Dr. Octo REX loop player loads eight REX loops and lets you switch between them on the fly. This also lets you use the sequencer to switch among the loops for automated arrangements. Nice!
Dr. Octo has other features as well:
- Retrigger loops on the beat, bar, or 16th-note
- Program loops manually
- Set pan, pitch, filter frequency and level per slice
- Reverse slices
- Use multiple outputs
- Create alternating groups of slices.
