Let me ask you – do you have hard drives chock full of loop libraries and samples? But do you find the workflow frustrating when you try to preview and import your loops into Logic Pro?
The obvious way to locate and preview your loops and samples would be to use the “All Files” tab in Logic’s Project Browser. That way you can dive through the contents of your Mac and connected drives.
You dive into a loop folder and start clicking on different loops to preview alongside your Project. Makes sense! But for some reason the loops never seem to line up with your Project’s tempo…
So you try importing the loops. But that doesn’t help either. Now you’re forced to figure out how to convert your loop’s tempo to match the Project. At which point you may be deciding to give up and take on a different art form instead
Here’s the thing – you can use your favorite loop libraries with Logic Pro with great success.
Yes, the tempos will line up when you preview and import. And yes – you can keep your libraries on your external hard drives, allowing your Mac to be free of clutter.
As it turns out, Logic’s Loop Browser has a special area for bookmarking and previewing your favorite 3rd party loops. But you wouldn’t know it was there until you imported some loops from outside the application. Such as from the Finder.
Upon import, you should then see a tab in the Loop Browser for Untagged Loops. And that is where you’ll head from now on 🙂
Check out today’s video above to finally integrate those loop libraries with Logic Pro.
