Loop Cloud 3.0
When Loopmasters unveiled their Loopcloud plugin at the start of 2017, one of the promises was that you’d be able to use it not only to manage the samples you’ve bought, but also your personal collection of sounds stored on your hard drive. Now, with Loopcloud 3.0, the company is delivering on that promise.
Folders of samples can be added to the Loopcloud browser, or you can simply drag sounds in. The software then analyses them and adds tags, such as the content type, instrument, BPM and key. You can also add your own custom tags.
With your library analysed and tagged, you can then search for specific types of sounds and use Loopcloud’s filtering options to hone in on what you’re looking for. There’s also an Auto Key feature that pitch-shifts your samples so that they’re in tune with your project, and timestretching to ensure they’re locked to tempo.
As things stand, your personal sounds are still stored on your hard drive rather than in the cloud but we hear there are plans to offer online storage in the future.
