In many musical styles, you’ll find loops used for everything from basic rhythm tracks to entire compositions. With Adobe Audition, you can either create your own loops or choose from thousands supplied for free via the Resource Central panel.
Loops let you create extremely flexible multitrack sessions. Though loops typically contain only one or two bars of music (four to eight beats), you can extend and repeat them by simply dragging with the mouse.
A. No loop B. Single loop C. Extended (repeated) loop
Snap to loop beats
To better synchronize a loop‑based session, use the Bars And Beats time format and enable snapping. Then add loops to create a rhythmic foundation, which you can build upon by recording new audio clips. (You can also add existing audio clips, but only their start or end points will align with loop beats.)
Choose View > Time Display > Bars And Beats. (This ruler format makes it easier to visually align loops with musical beats.)
From the Edit > Snapping submenu, choose any of the following:
Snap To Ruler (Coarse)
Snaps to beats within bars. Use this option if you work with 1/4 or 1/2 bar loop files.
Snap To Clips
Snaps to the start and end of audio clips.
Snap To Loops
Snaps to the start and end of loops within clips.
Enable a looped clip and change its length
In the Multitrack Editor, right-click an audio clip, and select Loop from the context menu.
Position the pointer over the left or right edge of the clip; the loop editing icon appears.
Drag to extend or shorten the loop.
Depending on how far you drag, you can make the loop repeat fully or partially. For example, you might drag a loop that is one bar long so that it extends 3‑1/2 bars, ending on a beat within the loop. As you cross each bar, a white vertical line appears in the clip. This is the snap‑to line, indicating perfect alignment to beats in other tracks.
