  • Can Apple loops be played on an Roland SPD-SX?

    I have Logic which includes many cool Apple loops.
    My question is if Apple Loops can be played or converted to be played on an SPD-SX?
    What I would like is a click, hit the pad and I get tambourine on 2 and 4. Hit another pad i get a Conga pattern etc.
    This could save a lot of programming.

    thx

    As long as you format the samples to 16 Bit/ 44.1 khz, you can load them directly on the SX and it will do exactly what you're looking for. It took some practice getting my loops cut exactly to be in sync with the click, but it's easy now that I know what Im doing.

      I am curious to know about the SX:

      Can you change tempo (i.e., do time-stretching, so pitches remain same) for the loops?
      And if so, can it be done while the loops are playing (e.g., increase or decrease the tempo)? or must you do it while the loops are stopped?

      Can the loops triggered be dynamically (i.e., harder you hit pad, the louder the loop will be played)?

        Thanks for the replies so far.
        So lets say I did get a loop imported and sync'ed to the click. What if I change the tempo? Will the loop automatically follow?

        thx
