COPY PASTE INSTRUCTIONS AND TROUBLE SHOOT

 

Note: most DAWs have a different way to paste. We will update this webpage with more instructions. Check your DAW's app instructions if a simple 'tap' doesn't work . When your DAW has copy/paste functionality it will work (a.o. Garageband, Auria, Cubasis, Music Studio, Multitrack Daw)!!

4. The loop is 2 bars (stereo mix) and cut to perfection in its own bpm. To repeat the loop at any length, select the loop by tapping on it, then tap again and a dialog will appear with options.

TROUBLESHOOT !!

 

no sound iOS 7 and up:

Open Drum Loops HD and set a loop to play (red marker appears). Pick a loop and not a fill, because a fill doesn't loop!!

1. always check your hardware button first: if it's switched to red, switch it back while playing a loop!!
2. Slide up the bottom of the screen to open the dock with wifi etc…
3. Check the volume at the left, put it to maximum
4. Check the mute button, it should be black.

Here are two screenshots; the first one with the wrong settings and the second one with the correct ones:

 

 

no sound iOS 6 or lower:

the first thing you should check is whether the sound is muted. The app uses the iPads own audio player, so the volume works with its own buttons:

1. open drum loops hd
2. press play for any loop (little red marker appears)
3. double press the home button
4. slide 'home button bar' to the right (all sound buttons and sliders appear)
5. the volume slider should be set to the right (full volume) and the speaker button shouldn't be muted (check this by pressing it).

 

NOTE: if you don't have the on screen speaker button :
This means you have chosen that the little switch at the side of your iPad is the speaker/mute button (next to the volume buttons). Try to switch this to un-mute the sound!!

In the general settings you can set the " use side switch to: " lock rotation. You can choose for this switch to be the mute button, or the lock rotation button.
When you choose for lock rotation, your screen (home button bar) will look like this picture (with a speaker/mute button).
