options - text search, tags, key and
The search box allows you to look for words, numbers or symbols that appear in the file name of the sound you are looking for.
For example, searching for ‘break’ will give you all the samples, MIDI files, presets, - all the content which has the word break in its file name.
However the power of Loopcloud is in the tags on each and every file. Using Tags to search will help you find the sound you are looking for fast.
Tags are organised into categories - click on any category to see
the tags. You can click on the currently selected category to close the tag filter view.
Loopcloud only displays the tags that are relevant to the files in your library, so every tag you see will give a result.
Here is an example tag filter:
• To find a specific file format, then click on FORMAT category,
then the WAV tag
• You’ll now see your search results as a list of .wav files • Then click the LOOP button to the right of the search box
• To further filter your results, go to the INSTRUMENTS category
