    to clarify, i would’nt make anything (incomewise) without edits for RF…i mentioned 30sec edits cause ironically its 90% of my revenue… thus i even started making multiple 30sec edits of a single track along with the main, alts, no melody, no drms, 60s, 30s, stings, dnb, loops, etc, which helps increase your track count and visibility tenfold…i had an instance which a buyer bought 2 30s edits (acoust only and no lead) in one transaction without even previewing the main track (per analytics)…glad i took arts advise and implemented this strategy from day 1..

    just sharing my humble experience with RF and as usual YMMV

    Art, Can you further expand on your approach (or a basic definition) to the “loop” portion of your alternates? Do you select a portion within the main groove of your track and break it down by different combos and loop those a couple times each, gradually layering on more tracks each round? Or am I way off here? Thanks.

    I basically take a 4 or 8 bar loop bed. My thinking it’s probably going to be used as underscore to dialog and shouldn’t get in the way of the dialog.

    I wouldn’t layer and add more tracks. It would seem to me that when the loop came back around, to repeat, it would be an odd dynamic and probably wouldn’t be seamless.

    On the other hand I know that some composers do make longer loops. Hopefully someone else will weigh in.

    Makes sense. Perhaps this deserves to bump to a topic unto itself? Thoughts regarding looping techniques that yield $ results?

    Sure, go ahead and start a new topic.

    When I make a loop I copy the last part of the loop range and splice it into the track before the loop start, just to have reverb tails etc fall into place when the range is being looped.

    I would normally leave a tiny space at the beginning of a clip (i.e. 1/10th to 2/10th of a second). However, for the “loop” clip version, does it make sense to still place a small spacer at the beginning of the clip? So if one were to truly loop the clip it would seamlessly loop back without any pauses. Or, do we place a spacer and leave it up to the media producer to perfectly meld the loops back to back, and leave it to them to eliminate any space between loop playbacks?

    Sounds like a horrible idea to me. The last thing you want is for a client to figure out how to make a loop, “loop”!

    Just tried your suggestion, I slightly overlapped the end decay into the beginning made a subtle but nice difference, thanks for the tip!
