Click on the cog icon to open preferences
There are 3 tabs.
Options - Account
Here you can change your account details. For example if you have changed your Loopmasters password.
If you have forgotten your password you can request a new one.
Options - Library Location
When you drag and drop files out of Loopcloud the file will automatically download and saved to the default library folder.
If you want to change this folder (perhaps you want it on a
secondary HDD), the select the location here.
NOTE: Depending on what DAW or music software you are using, the
sample may be copied into your project folder, or the project will reference the file to Loopcloud's Library Folder. You may need to
do a special save where the DAW copies the file to the project, or if you didn't do that, you'll need to set your DAW to search in the new library location for the missing sample.
NOTE: Changing the location does not move the content, but you can copy and paste all the content from your old location to the new one. Do this before change the location.
Options - Colour Scheme
Here are a few alternative colour schemes.
Options - Auto-download small purchases
When purchasing sounds, Loopcloud will download all small files once purchased.
Options- Enable Logging
You shouldn’t need to use this! But if you are having technical
issues and are in contact with support, then turn this on and we can
get some diagnostics from you.
Options - Formats Omitted from Search
Here you can tailor what content types are displayed in your search
results. You can use this only see files relevant to your DAW software and plugins – e.g. if you
use only Ableton Live and Apple Logic X, then you can disable all
Reason and Cubase instrument files.
Install Directories for Plugin Presets
Loopcloud can install plug-in presets so that they will work with your plug-in without any manual
Currently supported are Native Instruments Massive, Xfer Serum and
Lennar Digital Sylenth. We’ll be adding more in the future.
We’ve already selected the default locations for these plug-ins, but if
you have installed them on a different drive or folder, then click on the ... box to select the location
Preferences - Audio
Select your audio interface, output channels and sample rate.
You can also test the audio output - it will play a lovely sine wave.
NOTE: When you are using the Loopcloud plugin, Loopcloud previews are output from the DAW. The audio settings are only applied when using Loopcloud in standalone mode.
