Chapter 7. Looping Sound > Creating Loops

Creating Loops

A loop is most often created from a file that contains one or two measures, or bars, of music. A typical modern song with a 4/4 time signature contains four beats in every bar. We'll use a two-bar, eight-beat sound example from the Loopology files to create a loop.

To create a loop from an existing file

1.
In Edit view, choose File > Open and locate the Loopology CD-ROM (Figure 7.1).

Figure 7.1. Open the Loopology CD.


2.
Open the Cel_Music_Beds folder and then the Funk_Beds_110BPM subfolder; then open the file 110bpmFunk02 (Figure 7.2).

Figure 7.2. Access files and folders on the Loopology CD as you would any other CD content to import the sound files into Audition.


3.
To loop the entire two-bar sequence, open the Options menu, and select Loop Mode (Figure 7.3).

Figure 7.3. Select Loop Mode from the Options menu to preview the sound of your loop.


You now have a smooth, seamlessly repeating loop. When you press the spacebar to listen to the file, you'll hear it play over and over again, giving you a continuous beat.

Once you've selected and previewed your loop material, choose Edit > Copy to New. This copies your selection into a new file, in which you can fine-tune the loop properties.
