Hello again,


A.  I've been adding my own loops and right now under "Rock/Blues - Vocals" I have 109 of my own loops.  I have two questions 1. Is there a limit to the number of loops I can add in one place?  2. If not a strict limit, have you found things start to slow down or add difficulty after a certain number?


B.  I have named a couple Loops incorrectly, is there a way to edit/change a Loop name?


Thanks again folks,

    A. There should be no limit, and it shouldn't slow down you computer, since the loops are only loaded into your project when you use them.


    B. If it's only the name and not the tags, you can just rename it in the Finder. You will have to re-index your loops though.

    if you only have a few loops that you want to rename, you can avoid the reindexing by deleting single loops and reimporting, like this:


    • Copy the loop you want to rename from ~/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops to the Desktop.
    • Rename the loop in the Finder.
    • Delete it from the Loop Browser (simply select it and press delete - thanks, HangTime for pointing this out!).
    • Drop the renamed loop onto the Loop browser to reindex it.
