The Loopcloud plugin is used to preview sounds directly from Loopcloud into your DAW, meaning that you can preview sounds in time and in key with your session. Loopcloud's seamless DAW integration means that you can hear how a sample will sound in your project, even before you've spent any Loopcloud points. Below are instructions on how to open the Loopcloud plugin in a range of different DAWs. It's important to note that if you install Loopcloud with your DAW open, you'll need to either restart your DAW or rescan your plugins for the plugins to show up in your plugin browser.
