Loopcloud v2.0 FREE

Loopcloud is a great way for your DAW to meet audio. V2 means even faster creativity. Is it now too easy to make music? Who cares, says Andy Jones

Loopcloud is an impressive system that allows you to interact with your Loopmasters sample collection in ways that can add a lot of positives to your music creation process. You can quickly home in on samples by multiple tag types – instrument, genre, label, format, key or BPM – audition sounds and then load samples with ease.

You can run it standalone or as a plug-in within your DAW and it’s this latter option that most impressed me when I first looked at Loopcloud last April in its v1 format. Essentially you run Loopcloud as a regular plug-in and it syncs the samples to your DAW so you can be playing your tune and matching samples up which play in sync. For trying out ideas it’s brilliant and you’ll end up taking turns with your music that you may not have considered which can really aid creativity. With that first version I concluded that ‘if you use it properly, as a front-end audio auditioning area for your DAW, it’s a no-brainer, too, as in all likelihood, it will speed up the process. It’s early days, though, so keep an open mind. The future for the plug-in and cloud service could be very exciting.’
