Apple Loops made their first appearance with a helper application called Soundtrack, which comes with Final Cut Pro. (Soundtrack can also be purchased as a stand-alone application.) Though Apple Loops began life as a loop format to make audio editing easy for video editors, Apple Loops have been warmly received by audio editors as well. The reason is simple: Apple Loops contain information used to automatically time-stretch and transpose the audio file, so it not only plays at the correct tempo but also plays at the correct pitch for the song you are working on. It can otherwise take hours to time-stretch and pitch-convert regular audio files so that they fit into a song. But with Apple Loops all the magic takes place under the hood, leaving you free to concentrate on the important part of audio production—making music!
