If you're using these in a live performance, Its better if everyone in your band can hear the click track, but you can still run tracks if you don't have in ears for your band. However, you need to at least get your drummer on the click. Here is a simple and affordable way to get the click to your drummer. Basic In-Ear Diagram.
No. You can use whatever music software you prefer. You can use them with an mp3 Player, iTunes, Ableton, Reason, Garageband, Logic, etc. You name it! Also, all of our tracks are available in our FREE iPhone and iPad App, Prime. This is the easiest way to get started.
Community Tracks are always in Green around the site. They are created by our team of select community producers.
Premium Tracks are always in Purple around the site. They are recorded by our professional studio to match the original.
Master Tracks are always in Blue around the site. They are the original tracks from the artist or record label.
The App Track gives you the full track in PRIME, our FREE multitrack playback app. Customize your mix, change the tempo, and adjust the key all inside the app. The track is only available in the App.
The Split Track product gives you a ZIP download to your computer that contains 3 WAV files - Split (with Click panned Left and Track panned Right), Stereo, and Cues. You also get the full track in our free playback app, PRIME.
The Multi Track product gives you a ZIP download to your computer with WAV files for each instrument. You can use these in your favorite music software, like Ableton Live. You also get the full track in our free playback app, PRIME.
Band Cues are a group of recorded samples that tell you and your band what the next song section is in any song. They will normally be called out in time one measure before the start of each section (example: "Verse, 2, 3, 4", etc.) You can route them alongside the click track/metronome to be heard by the band only through in-ear monitors and separate from the audience. They can be used with audio software such as Ableton Live, Logic, Pro Tools, and more. You can purchase the official Loop Community Band Cue Pack HERE
Sorry to hear this! Please try the following:
1.) Make sure you are logged in using the same username/email you used to purchase the product.
2.) Try a different browser and Internet connection. Sometimes large files are blocked by firewalls on your network.
3.) These are very large files, so make sure you're on a FAST Internet connection.
Not officially. In order to receive the SplitTrack for any song, you'll need to first purchase the MultiTrack version, then email email@example.com with the 6-digit order number you receive. In the email, ask for the SplitTrack version of the song and we'll create one in your account! =)
Selling Your Tracks
PRIME MultiTrack App
If it's been a while since you first downloaded PRIME, most problems can be fixed by deleting the app and re-installing a fresh copy from the app store. If that doesn't work, please let us know.
Yes! Just tap the "Edit Song" button in the top right corner of PRIME, then tap "Edit Arrangement". You can add, delete, or drag and drop sections easily to create your own custom arrangement! If you want to go back to the original/default arrangement, just tap "Reset" at the top of screen. We have a great tutorial video available on CHANGING ARRANGEMENTS IN PRIME.
Any song you purchase from LoopCommunity.com will automatically show up in the app, as long as you are logged in with the same user account that was used to make the purchase.
With PRIME Cloud, you can upload your own audio into PRIME. Follow the instructions carefully and upload your audio via the PRIME Cloud Uploader!
Please make sure you're logging into PRIME using the same username or email that you used to purchase or upload the tracks.
To transpose/modulate a track's key in PRIME, simply tap the up or down arrows next to the key boxes in the bottom right corner. Any tonal stems (Piano, Guitars, Bass, etc.) will change pitch, while all percussive stems (Drums, Percussion, Claps, etc.) will not change pitch. Keep in mind that PRIME only transposes four 1/2 steps up or down from the original key.
It's possible your version of PRIME is corrupt. Please delete the app and re-install a fresh copy from the app store.
PRIME is not currently available for Android devices.
PRIME is a free app for iPad and iPhone that allows you to play, edit, and control your stems and tracks in the easiest and most mobile-friendly way. Check out our video tutorial on PRIME 101.
Make sure you're using an official Apple adapter. 3rd party adapters will not work. If you're using an interface (like an iConnect), contact the interface manufacturer for MIDI host support.
Please perform the following troubleshooting steps:
1.) Plug in a pair of Apple headphones and see if you still hear the click bleed. If not, then it has something to do with the way you're sending audio to your sound system.
2.) Check your iOS Settings / General / Accessibility and make sure "Mono Audio" is turned OFF.
3.) Tap the "ST / PAN" button in PRIME and see if that makes a difference.
4.) Turn down the gain on your sound system mixer. Sometimes if the gain is too high on the Click channel, the click can bleed into other channels.
5.) Try different cables. Make sure you're not using any adapters.
This is likely due to not having enough space on your iPad or iPhone. Check your storage space from the device. If there is less than 100 MB, free up space by removing photos, videos, and music, then try to re-upload. If you have plenty of space, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll look into it further.
If you uploaded a track in 6/8, but the click is counting in 4/4, you'll need to go to your account portal, then click on "Orders & Files". Next, click "PRIME Cloud" and look for your song that needs to be in 6/8 meter. Click the "Edit" button (looks like a pencil on paper) and change the time signature to 6/8 (there's also 3/4, 5/4, and 7/4 meters). PRIME doesn't yet support meter or tempo changes for one single song, but we'll be adding these features soon.
If your tracks aren't lining up and syncing to PRIME's dynamically generated click, you'll need to take the original stems you uploaded to PRIME and trim the beginning audio inside music software such as Logic Pro X or Ableton Live. Here are some steps to do so:
- Import your stems into a DAW like Garageband or Ableton Live.
- Zoom in to 1.1.1 in the timeline and look where the click track begins.
- If there is even a small amount of space between the start of the stems and the first click, then delete that extra space.
- Drag the trimmed stems over to line up at 1.1.1.
- Re-export those trimmed stems to your desktop.
- Select all the new stems and compress into a zip file.
- Re-upload to PRIME
Unfortunately, PRIME Cloud doesn't support syncing setlists to be downloaded to mulitple devices. We hope to bring this feature soon!
Yes! After you upload your audio to PRIME Cloud, launch PRIME and tap on "Edit Song". You'll be able to add your own section markers within PRIME. For more help, check out this amazing tutorial on ADDING CUSTOM MARKERS IN PRIME.
Yes. Just ZIP up your split or stereo audio file and follow the instructions. The uploader will ask you whether your upload is a Split Track or a Stereo Track.

PAD mode is one of three distinct modes you can use with the Looptimus. In PAD mode, the Looptimus can be used as a piano for your feet! You can change sounds that are played as well as chnage notes in the scale and the octaves of a certain key. Take a quick look at our video tutorial on PAD MODE FOR LOOPTIMUS.
First, make sure you're using an Expression Pedal and not a Volume Pedal. Yes, there is a difference. Looptimus only works with Expression Pedals. We recommend the M-Audio EXP.
Unfortunately, no. The 1/4" port of the Looptimus MINI is non-functional while the MINI is plugged into the Looptimus. If you have a newer Looptimus, just plug your expression pedal into the silver port of the Looptimus, and the MINI into the gold port of the Looptimus.
You can get the Looptimus MINI in one of five colors: Black, Blue, Red, Green, and Yellow. Check them out on Looptimus.com!
The Looptimus MINI ships to you with the Looptimus MINI, a USB Cable, and documentation on how to use it. Check out the UNBOXING VIDEO!
Yes! Just make sure it's a MIDI expression pedal and not a standard volume pedal.

You can learn how to adjust the key and tempo of any track in Ableton Live by watching this tutorial video HERE.
If your tracks are not lining up to the click and are out of sync, go to Ableton Live's preferences > record/warp/launch tab > make sure "Auto warp long samples" is turned OFF. Next, re-import your stems into a new session. Also make sure that the global BPM is correctly set for each scene/song.
Credits and Membership
Credits are Loop Community's own currency. You can use credits to make purchases on the website. 1 credit = $1. If a track is $9.99, it would cost 10 Credits. You can buy credits in bulk and save money on your purchases. Credit discounts are not applied to hardware or software.
Credit Bundles make it easy for you to stock up on Loop Community Credits. You can buy Credits in bulk and save money. The more Credits you buy, the more you save with bundles.
Simple. During checkout, choose "Credits" as your payment method. Your credit balance will then be used to make the purchase. You can always see your current Credit balance at the top of the website. There is a green box that says C (and the number of credits you have to spend).
Credits expire 1 year after your last credit replenishment date. If you purchase a new Credit bundle, all of your current credits renew with the new purchase date. For example, if you purchase 500 credits in January and don't use all of them, they will expire on the same purchase date a year later. However, if you purchase more Credits in October, the remaining credits you had from January will now expire a year from October instead of January.
If you don't use all of your credits in a given month, your credits will roll over to the next month. However, credits expire 1 year after the last purchase date. If you purchase a new Credit bundle, all of your current credits renew.
Unfortunately, this isn't an option right now. We hope to offer track upgrading features in the future!
