    Merging audio regions / blue Apple loops for further looping?
    Hi there, is it possible to somehow merge/glue audio-regions (mainly blue Apple Loops) together to simplify arranging and/or further looping? To further explain what I mean say there are 5 different loops A, B, C, D and E on one track. These should play: ABABCABABD then this whole part again and then E. So it would make sense to first be able to merge A B together so it's [AB][AB]C[AB][AB]D which again could be merged to [ABABCABABD], repeat that once and then play loop E so it's [ABABCABABD][ABABCABABD]E Is this somehow possible? Or is there another way to loop multiple (succeeding) regions? Regards, SpaceAce

    Hi Space Ace, Welcome to the forums :) Blue (Audio) Apple Loops currently have a few limitations compared to normal audio regions. e.g. You cannot use the Fade tool on them and cannot use the merge command. I beleive the best way to do this would be to set the locators (cycle area) over the A&B loops and choose File > Bounce... (Choose 'add to Audio Bin') However, the resulting audio file will not be as flexible as an Apple loop... My preferred way is to pack the loops into a folder. - Place all the loops (A, B, C, D, E) on separate tracks in the Arrange. - Select regions in Tracks with A and B. - Choose Region > Folder > Pack Folder Now you can move around multiple regions by just moving one folder around! Double click on the folder to view it's contents. Double click on the empty background of a folder to return to the standard Arrange view. Hope that helps, Rounik

    Hi Rounik, Thanks for the fast reply! You are right, instead of bouncing the regions your proposal of packing the tracks to a folder is more flexible. Furthermore if the the loops are on different tracks it's easy to apply different automation curves for the volume to avoid the fader problem with Apple loops. By the way: Congratulations to your cool site and tutorial videos! Cheers, SpaceAce
