Acid loops are probably the most widely used audio sample format in the world, since they are based on the most basic uncompressed audio file format |.wav | and can be read by both Windows PC and Apple/MAC computers.
REX loops are quite a bit different, and need special software that is able read them, often times in the form of a plug-in inside your DAW. REX loops can also be read by both Windows PC and Apple/MAC computers, if you have a program or plug-in to load them into. The reason for this is that REX |.rx2| is a proprietary audio file format.
Acid and REX loops are just about equally good for making music and changing the key and tempo of the sounds though. Our Acid and REX loops all have both the key and tempo info right in the file name, so you can see it before even hearing it if you like, or use them in programs that don’t automatically match the pitch or do time stretching. For instance, sometimes when I make the mp3 demos for our Acid and REX loops sets, I don’t set an overall key, I pick and match loops that just seem to work together musically. Also, just so that things sound more natural, I usually try to keep the tempos all fairly close so that they are not too stretched and metallic sounding. Both of those methods are made easy by having the key & tempo info right in the file name for me to see when I am browsing through them.
