What is an RX2 file?
An RX2 file is an audio loop created by ReasonStudios ReCycle and used by digital audio workstations (DAWs). It contains audio loop samples saved in ReasonStudios' proprietary REX2 format. The RX2 file format supports both mono and stereo audio, whereas the .REX format supports only mono.
The REX2 format, RX2 files, and REX files are quite popular among audio producers and supported by most popular DAWs. Most importantly, the REX2 format allows audio producers to divide audio loops into "slices," using markers that denote a zero crossing in a waveform. By timing each slice to a specific playback time, REX2 loops can easily be included in songs that use different tempos.
NOTE: The REX in REX2 stands for ReCycle Export, which references the name of the ReCycle software used to create RX2 and REX files.
