What is a Loop?

An audio loop is just the same thing is a sample. The only difference is that a ‘loop’ is a sample which can be played continuously in a loop so that it sounds like a seamless performance that could be looped to whatever duration you want. Samples are typically ‘one-shots’ or sampled sounds that you can trigger in a particular sequence as apposed to being ‘looped’. Both ‘loops’ and ‘samples’ can be triggered by MIDI devices by loading them into either a software or hardware ‘sampler’ and then hooking that up to a MIDI controller, such as a keyboard.

You can also sequence ‘loops’ or ‘samples’ on an audio track of any audio sequencer or DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) such as Ableton Live, Logic, Garageband,Cubase, Sonar etc. Loops have made it very quick and easy to record and produce high quality digital music even if you have the talent and skill to play all your own instruments, chances are you’ll often loop a repeated song part instead of playing it over and over again. In the old days there was no option but to play a song the entire way through from start to finish during a recording. If you had a skilled ‘tape op’ sound engineer they could ‘drop you in’ just at the right place on the tape recording but thankfully those days are long gone (although they were kind of fun at times but ultimately expensive).
