Are all of Loopcloud’s samples royalty-free?
Yes. You’ll have a full royalty-free license for every sample that you download from Loopcloud. Any samples that you purchase with points - or through your free quota - are yours for a lifetime. Click to read our full License Agreement.
If I don’t spend all of my points do they rollover?
Yes - your points never expire and rollover as long as your subscription is active. If you cancel your subscription or your subscription lapses your points are frozen. Unlike other sample subscription services that remove your points when you cancel or take a holiday, you will never lose your points with Loopcloud. These points will be available to spend again as soon as you resubscribe.
What computer platforms and music software is Loopcloud compatible with?
Loopcloud is for Mac and PC. The software works in standalone mode or via the Loopcloud VST, AU or AAX plugin. This directly connects to any music software with plugin support: Ableton Live, Apple Logic, Steinberg Cubase, Propellerheads Reason, FL Studio, and any other VST compatible products.
Do I get free sounds?
We have changed the way you get access to free sounds in Loopcloud and made it much better! Rather than getting sounds only from the latest packs we have now given you access to free samples from nearly all the packs available in Loopcloud – totalling over 14,000 sounds and growing daily. Simply find a pack that you like and click the “free” tag in the product header to see the free sounds for that pack, or type “free” in the search box to get a more customised list. See our plans page for more details on daily free sounds per subscription level.
What are the Exclusive Sounds?
We are working with top labels and artists to bring an expanding selection of exclusive sample packs, sounds and expansions to Loopcloud. These products are not available anywhere else – even at Loopmasters.com. So if you are looking to access something unique use the exclusive filter tag in the search box, or browse the exclusive packs from the home page.

What happens to my points, sounds and files if I cancel my subscription?
Any samples that you have bought within Loopcloud or Loopmasters remain yours forever. You can access your samples via the Loopcloud app and the website. If you cancel your subscription, we’ll keep any content that you’ve stored with us in the cloud for up to 90 days, after that which time your stored files may be deleted. You will never lose your points with Loopcloud. These points will be available to spend again as soon as you resubscribe.
Can I upgrade or downgrade as I need?
You can upgrade/downgrade your account at any time. Studio and Professional subscription levels let you add additional storage levels as your requirements grow, and also permit you to top up your points balance if you run out of points/data.
Can I use Loopcloud on multiple machines?
Yes - you can use the application with as many computers as is permitted for your subscription level. For the Artist and Studio plans this is 2 machines, and for the Professional plan this is 4 machines.
What are the limitations of Loopcloud’s free version?
The free version of Loopcloud still has much of the same great functionality as the paid version. All of your purchases from Loopmasters, plus any additional sounds from your own collection, can be added and tagged. The free version includes two tracks instead of eight and doesn’t include effects adjustment or the ability to search and download samples individually with monthly points. It doesn’t pitch edited regions or allow users to expand the range of content for the Loopcloud Plugin suite of VST instruments.
If my Hard Drive fails will I get everything back?
Data is safer duplicated. It’s unlikely that more than one copy of it is lost at once but cannot be guaranteed. Uploading your data to Loopcloud is a great way to duplicate your sample library. Any samples stored in your cloud storage will be available – subject to our terms and conditions, and all the products you have previously bought at Loopmasters. Your local files are at risk if you have not duplicated them.
If I delete files from my computer will they remain in the cloud?
If you have copied these files to your Cloud Storage folder, they will remain in your cloud storage, even if you delete them locally. Any purchases you have made from Loopmasters.com will always remain in your Loopcloud account. Only files you have tagged locally and not added to cloud storage risk being lost in this scenario.
Is Loopcloud private and secure?
Are the tags saved?
Yes, and they are replicated to other machines attached to the same account.
If I edit on a different computer will it change everywhere?
Loopcloud storage works like a network drive. If you make changes to tags or change which files are stored then it will be updated on all computers. However, if you edit or apply any processing to a file in your cloud storage you will be editing your local downloaded copy of the file and these changes will not be automatically reflected on other computers unless you add the changed file back into storage.
How is Loopcloud 5 different from Loopcloud 4?
We have improved search, added multi-track editing, Loopcloud instruments, cloud-storage, a whole new user interface, audio effects and much more. There is also a subscription model for advanced features and monthly points. New Inspirations has also been replaced with a vast catalogue of free sounds that can be searched directly from the app and downloaded with daily limits which increase with your subscription level. See www.loopcloud.com/plans for full information.
How does searching work in Loopcloud 5?
Searching from anywhere runs a global-search of both the store and your library. We present a few results to get you started as fast as possible before interleaving 200 store results with your user library results. You can use the filter toolbar to search only the store or your user library. If you search just the store you’ll get 1000 store results instead of just 200. The filter toolbar also has a ‘WAV’ button which filters out all the non-WAV content (like Rx2 files or sampler patches) by default. Searches now show huge rows with pack artworks and waveforms (a popular request!). You can go back to small rows with loads of results on the screen by clicking the button on the right of the filter toolbar. The search box now allows you to add tags with auto-complete. You can search entirely using the keyboard without using the mouse if you want. You can type in a number and it will auto-complete the BPM search options as well.
Is there a compact mode?
Make the app narrow and it’ll switch to ‘compact mode’ showing you a reduced set of information in a window size that’ll run alongside your DAW. You can turn always-on-top mode on in preferences and/or have it snap to your screen edge by dragging it to the edge of your screen.
What is Loopcloud Multitrack?
You can use multitrack in two main ways - as a shortlist of loops or one shots before settling on which sounds to use in your track, or as a sound-design tool for making new loops combining multiple sounds. As a subscriber you get to use 8 tracks at once. You can use it for previewing sounds (in time and in key with your session) just like previous versions of Loopcloud, but you can also rearrange sounds, create new sounds, preview only the sub-sections of audio you want, export processed sounds and so on.
What are the Loopcloud Effects?
Click FX EDIT in the editor section with a loop loaded to add effects to specific regions or all of your audio. It’s half-way between DAW automation and effectrix. Loopcloud currently includes a Delay, Filter, GrainStretch, Paneer, Reverb, Stop Reverse and Vinyl Stop. More effects to come soon!
