Loop Players

When you play a "sample" in a "sampler" on a key higher or lower than its "root key", the "sample" is transposed to the pitch of the key. To achieve this transposition the sample is played faster by the sampler. This results;

A "Loop Player" is a much more sophisticated device which allows you to change the "pitch" and/ or "tempo" (speed) of "samples" without distorting the audio.

A "Loop Player" will also automatically "loop" the "sample." (repeat over and over again.)

A "Loop" is an audio sample which has been "sliced" into smaller parts, (by a program such as "ReCycle") which are then processed by the "Loop Player."

These files are "not" in the ".wav" format, but are "REX" files.
