3. Basic Editing > Repeating part of a waveform to create a loop

Repeating part of a waveform to create a loop

Many elements in music are repetitive. A loop is a piece of music that lends itself to repetition, like a drum pattern; many companies offer sound libraries of loops that are suitable for creating sound tracks (Lesson 12, “Creating Music with Sound Libraries,” covers how to create sound tracks in Audition by using loops). However, it’s also possible to create your own loops by extracting a loop from a longer piece of audio.

1. Choose File > Open, navigate to the Lesson03 folder, and open the file Ueberschall_PopCharts.wav.

2. Click the Transport’s Loop Playback button, or press Ctrl+L (Command+L).

3. Try to select a region that makes musical sense when looped. You can move the region boundaries during playback. If you have a hard time finding good loop points, set a region to start at 7.742 seconds and end at 9.673. You’ll need to zoom in to set these timings accurately.
