Editing waveforms

Pick and choose from different sounds to create your own rhythmic/sequence patterns.


A variety of patterns like kick, snare, and percussion are included, and many ideas can be taken from here.

Pattern Change

When using these patterns, even if you change the sound the pattern will remain.
This is useful for trying out various samples with the same pattern as well.

In addition, the pattern can be edited with different samples selected as well.

Zoom settings


The zoom display can be optimized for your edits as well.
Use “-” to shrink and “+” to zoom, and the icon on the left to display the entire waveform.


The editing will be synced to the DAW tempo, but the editing detail can be changed in subdivisions.
Simply click on the “GRID” menu to select the desired subdivision.

  • Snap to grid : By removing the check, you can make detailed edits without the confines of a grid
  • AUTO : The Grid detail will change depending on the zoom amount
Cutting regions


By using the scissor tool, you can split regions and edit the separately.

Volume editing


Use the arrow tool to change the region’s volume, as well as add in fades.
In addition, regions can be moved as well as copy/pasted.

Mute settings


By utilizing the mute tool, you can mute specific regions.
This is useful for blanking out specific parts of phrases as well.

Reverse settings


You can reverse play a desired region.
Use it from reverse cymbals to other phrase reversing to create new and unique sounds.

Export Audio

Of course, the results can be directly exported into your DAW as well.

Adding original samples

Your own sample materials can be added and organized in Loopcloud.

Loopcloud add samples

Click on the plus icon above to select the sample folder.

Add sample

The great thing about this function is that the added materials are auto analyzed and tagged.
This removes the long process of organizing plugins.

Though this analysis is very detailed and accurate, if the file isn’t analyzed well,

Smple analize

select the sample, and click on the edit icon above.
The tags can be deleted and added for the sample.

Purchasing sample materials

There is a Loopcloud Store available, where sounds can be purchased to expand on your library.
The products are purchased with points.


Click on the account icon,

Buy Point

and after checking your current points, move on to purchasing.

Buy Sample

From the Store, you can select different sample packs as well as single sounds.
However, purchasing in packs is much more cost effective.

After purchase, your new sounds will be added to your Loopcloud library, and can be edited with all of the previously mentioned functions.

This completes our tutorial series on Loopcloud.

We believe this product to be a powerful tool for effectively managing a massive amount of samples.
The ability to even add and have your own samples analyzed in an incredible bonus.
