Review: Audiofile Engineering Loop Editor 2

Since Apple pulled their Apple Loops Utility, there's been a void in the area of easy custom loop creation for Logic and all other DAWs. Does Audiofile Engineering's Loop Editor fill the gap?  

Creating your own loops has always been a bit of a niche activity. Programs like GarageBand, Logic Pro, Ableton Live and Reason all come with a vast library of loops right out of the box, and creating your own seemed like a daunting task. However, now that these programs have been mainstream for quite some time we're all starting to get a bit tired of hearing the same set of loops as background for our favorite reality shows. The ability to add to your loop library with your own custom loops has never been more important, and Audiofile Engineering has released Loop Editor 2.0 to make the process easy.

Editor's Note: When Logic Pro X was released one of the apps included in the previous incarnations of Logic Studio went missing. Namely the Apple Loops Utility. This used to be one of the easiest ways to create and edit your own Apple Loops. Loop Editor does more than fill this gap of course, but if you're looking for an easy way to create your own Apple loops, then read on!
