Craft unique sounds quickly with Loopcloud 5’s new plug-in instruments

Cloud-linked sample and loop platform adds Loopcloud Play and Drum instruments, browser-based version coming.

Loopmasters Loopcloud 5

Back at Winter NAMM 2019, Loopmasters unveiled version 4 of Loopcloud, adding a new Loop editor to the popular cloud-based sample and loop distribution platform. The company has now released Loopcloud 5, an updated edition boasting two new plug-in instruments – Loopcloud Drum and Play – as well as a refreshed interface, sound tagging and abundant cloud storage space.

The new plug-ins afford you access to an extensive collection of sounds and virtual instruments curated by “top artists and exclusive labels”, according to Loopmasters. Play comprises virtual bass, keys and strings, while Drum arms you with virtual drum kits, percussion sounds and one-shots.

On top of the new plug-ins, Loopcloud 5 also boasts a re-worked interface that’s more compact and tailored to split-screen usage. With this new layout, you’ll be able to source for sounds without interrupting your workflow. And to make the search for sounds easier, you can add tags and metadata to both your existing sound collection as well as Loopmaster’s large catalogue. As before, if you can’t decide on the appropriate sounds and effects for your project, you can edit their tempo, key and other parameters, and audition them in time with your project before making a purchase.
