Loopcloud has launched an update to its software that lets you produce music whenever inspiration hits.

Version 5.2 of Loopcloud helps you find the sounds your projects need faster than ever before. For users with large sample libraries, searches of purchased and imported samples are up to 10 times faster.

Loopcloud 5.2 update

Add your own samples and Loopcloud will analyse and auto-tag them all. When searching for sounds Loopcloud will give you the best match whether the sounds are from your personal collection or from our online Loopcloud store.

To achieve this new search performance, we’ve made big changes to the database format. After installing the update, and launching Loopcloud, it will create a backup of your existing database and upgrade your database to the new format. Depending on the number of samples in your collection this update could take a few seconds or several minutes.

Other changes in Loopcloud 5.2:

  • Improved user interface graphics and fonts.
