Save Your Loop
So you have your loop playing, you’ve already set both start and end markers, and the loop button is yellow, indicating it is on. Perhaps it is a four-bar chord sequence, or an eight-bar 4/4 drum loop. You have already set all the effects you need, assigned all virtual instruments and mixed your work accordingly. Now, of course, you want to save your work so it is reusable.
The easiest way to save is by exporting the loop you have created, and subsequently re-importing it into your next session. This saves valuable resources, particularly RAM and CPU power, which you will need for your next session. The export function saves the loop you’ve created as one single audio-block, preferably a WAV file, so on your next session you can re-set your markers to whatever they were and re-import it.
To get started with the export, go to File, then Export Audio/Video, and click ok at the bottom. You can choose various options, such as bit-depth or sample rate if you require a higher quality output. Generally, the options given are fine unless you are working on a particularly demanding project, i.e. using a bit-depth of 32 and a sample-rate of 96,000. Otherwise, your loop is now exported to whatever destination you chose to save it to.
