Loop Editor

Version: 1.5.0 || Release Date: 2010-02-04 || License: Commercial with demo ($49) Developer: Audiofile Engineering | App Owner: audiofileeng

Loop editor is a simple audio loop editor. It has two modes. One is 100% free and allows you to add and edit loop points as well as add crossfades to those loop points. The "Plus" mode is $50 and allows advanced metadata editing utilized in ACID and Apple Loops files.

Designed in Cocoa from the ground up, Loop Editor proudly takes advantage of Quartz, CoreAudio, and other solid OS X interface features.

Loop Editor supports all audio file formats that support loop markers, including every type of looping available for any given format. Loop Editor is one of the only applications available that manages multiple loop makers (within files that support multiple loops).

I'll fix the description, but so everyone knows, there are two modes. One is free (loop point editing, crossfade editing ,etc) and one is paid (advanced metadata editing). The latter is only necessary for those who are creating libraries of ACID and or Apple Loops files.

I hope whoever "owns" this entry will clean it up. According to the company's web site, Loop Editor is free. Loop Editor Plus costs $50US.

very nice!!!

This is some pretty useful stuff! Simplifies creation of audio loops, and looks nice to boot. Pretty quick & responsive, and seems stable so far in my testing. Unfortunately, parts of it feel sort of like a beta release... For instance, you can turn on 'Crossfade,' but the crossfade 'time' stays stuck at 0.00 seconds, and makes no difference. The curve slider next to it does nothing as well.

One further thing is that zooming in on the waveform past the amplitude of the wave in the detail viewer shows the wave as clipped. It would be nice if this was an option instead of the only behavior... Not that it makes all that much difference, but it was a bit disorienting at first (thinking, "I'm not actually altering the waveform am I? It's not actually going to clip is it?" &c.)

Overall, it's great... and free to boot! Worth the download if you have to do any looped phrase sampling or anything of the sort.
