DMS how to guide: Importing REX files into Logic Pro

May 30th 2012

We take a look at importing REX files (Recycle!) into Apple’s Logic Pro sequencer software in OS X. Recycle or REX loop files are very useful since they contain tempo and slice data for the loop, making them easy to edit and re-arrange in your sequencer software. Almost all major sequencer software titles now support REX file import including Reason, Cubase, Logic, Sonar & Ableton Live.

 First off you’ll need the REX shared Library installed. Navigate to the Propellerhead Software website and download and install the REX Shared Library for OS X. Once you’ve installed the update there are several ways to import REX files into Logic.

1) Drag and drop the desired REX file from a finder window onto an audio track in the arrange window, this will open the Recycle file import dialogue box, press OK to import the REX file.

2) Copy the REX files that you’d like to import into your EXS24 Sampler Instruments folder (User -> Library -> Application Support -> Logic -> Sampler Instruments). From the EXS24 front panel click the preset window and choose ‘Refresh Menu’. The REX files will then show up as Sampler Instruments in your EXS24 preset list.
