Working With Files

Loop Editor can natively open and save AIFF, WAV, Apple Loops, ACID, and Sound Designer II files. Loop Editor can also import and convert ReCycle (REX and RX2) files to Apple Loop or ACID files.


Add Files

You can add files to the File List by selecting File > Add...

menu_file_add

Which will then prompt the open dialogue:

dialogue_open

Or, you can add files to the File List via drag and drop.

ReCycle Files

To add ReCycle files to the File List you first need to install the REX Shared Library. If the REX Shared Library is not installed, you will be confronted with this dialogue upon launching Loop Editor:

Loop Editor will convert the ReCycle file to either an Apple Loop or ACID file. Select Loop Editor > Preferences to specify the conversion behavior. See the "Preferences" chapter for more information.


Save Files

After you've edited a file a blue dot will appear next to it.
