Welcome to The Art of Looping!

In this website I share my personal research about how samples were looped in the 80s and 90s, with accessible current tools!


I was very interested about old sample libraries and synthesizers, which made me research a lot about it. Also, I was very interested on developing sample libraries, so I had to learn about sample rate, fine tune, and of course, looping. During the next years, I tried to decipher the way big companies such as Roland, Yamaha, Korg and more, created loops, because I was impressed of how they get a really good result with little memory, and some of them I can't replicate even with the most precise and perfect crossfade I could make. I discover things during this research and practice them. Now I'm gonna share with you what I learned. Since today's world, memory is not a limit anymore and people forget about other looping techniques besides of crossfade.
