Hi, new to GB and this is probably a newbie question:
Is it possible to clean up the loops in GB. I donīt need hundreds of house, acid, rap loops, I need to trash the loops that I donīt like and to build my own libary.
Thank you!

hello.

to delete certain loops or all loops, or which ever you want, you have to go to the main loops folder. go to -

(Hardrive/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops For
Garageband) -

There you will see a whole buttload of loops Razz

Then delete as you please, and when Garageband is restarted, the loops you deleted will be gone from the Loop Browser inside Garageband.

Very Happy

You can also create a new folder outside the library and save the loops you don't want, just in case you change your mind and want to use them later.

it's kinda funny to think of getting rid of loops. I think there is potential for any loop, it's just finding the right voice for it or location in a song. There were some loops I thought I'd never use and surprise! I needed it for a song. Razz

I would do the make a second folder thing, or just mark the ones you like as favorites and only look at your favorites when you go into the browser. Less work that way.

Disagree. It takes ability/talent to get loops to sound good. Either way; 'tis nice to have the option. Wot?!

Also, loops, or any other sound file, can be moved and stored on another drive. GarageBand, or any other app, will ask you to find the missing files, if you've used them in a song you're opening, so you'll only need to point GB towards the drive where the loops are stored and it'll find the files and run them from there.

Hi,

You said..."build your own loop library".
I ask... What about creating your own loop library?
Until you know what the difference is I would urge you to sit tight.
You asking... "can loops be cleaned up". Not knowing what that means to you I can only suggest that undertake and enjoy the journey!
Good luck!

I agree As Loop makers There is an endless possibility working with loops weather in garageband, Logic, Acid Ableton or Protools you will have the ability to manipulate, Filter, Cut, Crop change the key use VST's . if you find the right loop library for your genre you can do anything

As you listen to individual loops in the loop browser, if you come across one that doesn't suit you, then you can highlight it & hit the "delete" button on your keyboard & it will ask you if you want to rid it from your library.

Well, I am trying to add drum loops per inverse of the aforementioned string (copy and paste):

"(Hardrive/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops For
Garageband)" - They cannot be found in Loops once restarting GB (GARBAGE Band) as I believe they are not catagorized to fit a genre, BPM, tempo, instrument, etc.

When you open the loop files, you can highlight them with
a Color label, this way you can color the ones you like
and the ones you don't...... ( In finder " File " ).....
I would hesitate on deleting them all, a loop in hand is always
better then one you've got to look for, when your in a
crunch looking for a grove....
And If you don't like the loop, you could play the part for
real, you never know you might learn something....

RISSLING..... go to Applications.....
