Whether you can’t quite find a loop that sounds just right for your project or you just feel like the existing loops have simply lost their lustre, I guarantee you’ll ask yourself this question at some point in your Garageband career:
‘Where can I get more loops?’
It certainly ranks up there as one of the questions people ask me the most.
Go do a google search for ‘free Garageband loops’ right now. It’s cool, i’ll wait…
I’m sure you noticed the huge number of places you can grab new samples from, the problem being that you just don’t know if what you’re downloading is good quality or even if it’s compatible with Garageband.
I’ve dredged through enough crappy, useless free download loop samples in my time to know that when you find a resource that provides consistently great quality audio samples, you stick with them.
Which is where these guys come in…
Here’s the speil:“Loopmasters officially launched early in 2003 with the aim of producing flexible sample libraries for producers and musicians who required top quality playing from seasoned professionals to integrate into and inspire their music.”
Which sounds all well and good, but are their loops any good? How do you get hold of them?
In this video, I walk you through how to set up a free account with Loopmasters that allows you to freely download over 1GB of FREE loops from the hundreds of sample packs they have on offer. I also show you how to import your shiny new sounds into Garageband’s loop browser.
The whole process takes less than 5 minutes and is really simple.
In case you’re wondering – all loops from Loopmasters.com (free or paid) are 100% compatible with Garageband 10!!
I would definitely recommend giving them a go, even if you plan on only grabbing yourself some free samples, though you should note that it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to use any of your demo loops in that world changing, #1 über hit you’re putting together – the creators of the loop packs do still own the rights to those loops, until you purchase the pack they came from..
