I’ve had an issue with Looptastic dropping tracks, messing up audio as it’s being ramped up in volume, and assigning fx to tracks which were not originally supposed to have fx.
Here’s what happens (you may be able to re-create the issue if you follow these steps):
1.) Create a new loop set. Import your loops. Name them, tell the program which loop is a lead instrument, lead vocal, etc.
2.) you do multiple mix sessions. You finally come up with something you like using your loop set.
3.) You mix the version you plan on sharing. You save it. You upload it to SoundCloud, or export some other way.
4.) You play your mix back. Doh! An instrument you had slowly ramped up in the mix session pops on and off as it gets louder and louder. The popping is distracting “Why didn’t it sound like that as i was mixing it??” You’ll ask yourself.
5.) Ok, you can get over the popping loops. You continue listening.
6.) Something is wrong. Your piano loop has played through 8 bars at least but the lead vocals you mixed aren’t coming in like they should. What happened?? You decide to re-export. Maybe something went wrong while Looptastic was mixing your track…
7.) Another several minutes down the drain. You say a prayer (or meditate briefly) and play your new track back again.
8.) Same issue with the volume. Same issue with the vocals. Dropping tracks may be rare but it has been an issue in my case.
9.) You spend another half hour mixing the session again thinking maybe if you start all over, it will work.
10.) It doesn’t. You restart. Same thing. You un-install, then re-install Looptastic. Same problem. You upgrade your OS. Same problem. Maybe it’s the memory—you backup all your photos and videos and free up 20 gigs. Same problem.
This has been a major stumbling block for me, but as you’ll see below the developers are on the case. I am keeping this thread open as it may become useful to people experiencing similar issues.
