Perform and Produce with Sliced Loops

Loops from the Content Store are compatible, as is any .wav file with standard loop metadata (acidized). Plus create your own from any sample with the new improved Editor.

In the updated Sound Editor, you’ll find a new tab. Next to trusty Trim and Chop to Pads is the brand new Slice Loop. Take any loop of audio, mark the beats, and your good to go with a sliced loop that will automatically match your Sequence tempo at any pitch! The choice is now yours — any sample can be Chopped to Pads or Loop Sliced. Plus open your favorite loops from the Content Store and chop them to pads in one tap.
