How to prepare your Sample Set

Loopseque Sample Set includes:

  • a title
  • a set of audio samples (16 for Basic and Mini, up to 64 for Extra)
  • a demo track (posted on SoundCloud service)

All samples must be:

  • Uncompressed. You can’t use mp3, ogg, etc.
  • Interleaved.
  • Linear PCM.
  • AIFF (aif) or WAVE (wav).
  • Sample rate: from 16000 Hz to 192000 Hz. Loopseque applies the simplest resampling therefore strongly recommended to use 44100 Hz.
  • Bits per channel: 16 or 24. Recommended 16 bits.
  • Number of channels: mono or stereo (1 or 2). Recommended stereo.
  • Maximum time lenght in frames: 1323000 (60 sec at 44.100 Hz). Recommended from 200 ms to 2 seconds for samples.
  • The recomended RMS is about -6 dB.

This version of Loopseque uses an audio engine supporting 44,100 Hz sample rate and operating with 32 bits floating point format.

Note on samples count:

  • For Loopseque Basic and Mini it’s enough to have 16 one-shot samples per Sample Set.
  • For Loopseque Extra you can add up to 64 one-shot samples or loops with the length of up to 4 bars.

Easy guide to Loopseque sound infrastructure

Basic rule of setting samples to circles on the Wheel:
Inner circles contain lower sounds, and the outer circles contain higher sounds.

 

 

Loopseque ecosystem. Arrangement of samples.

It’s advisable to stick to the following distribution of samples:

  • The first channel is for the drums. The inner circle is for Base drum, the next circle is for Snare drum, the two outer circles are for Open and Close Hi-Hats.
  • The second channel is for sub bass and bass samples. You can also use low and middle Tom samples here.
  • The third channel is for percussion samples.
  • The fourth channel can be used for all other samples.

While naming your samples, use numeric values at the beginning of the files, to make our sound engineers’ work more simple. For example: 01_kick, 02_snare, … 15_fxshot, 16_synth.

Choose only the most important samples that make up the main groove and message of your song.

Anyway, this is only our wishes.

Feel free to make something special

For example: you can create sample-set containing only percussion sounds, or only vocal samples. We are totally open to your creativity.

Casual Underground Lab’s sound engineers will listen to all of your sample-sets anyway, and will make necessary tuning.

When preparing to send your Sample Set, it’s very important to attach a link to the short preview hosted on the SoundCloud service.

Loopseque ecosystem is fully integrated with SoundCloud, letting Loopseque’s users see the new artists’s releases, listen to the new tracks and to download their sample-sets.
