i wish mixcraft could be as generous with these type of drum loops as they are with all the hundreds and hundreds of dance/techno/club loops they have included.
Agreed, but the aftermarket has many inexpensive options for these styles.
there's a click at the very end of "drum fill 2". others, like "drumbeat 10" and "drumbeat 11" have squeaks (barely noticeable but there nonetheless). there are also others that have similar faults.
so, is it possible to get the authors (in this case, sfxsource.com) to re-submit these loops after they fix them? or somehow fix them another way?
I have found many loops from all kinds of sources that have these "artifacts." Listening for them and cleaning up the loops has become standard practice anytime I am using a looped source, just as I would with a recorded source, looking for background noises, clicks, coughs, who knows what. Even with "studio quality" recordings.
With loops its more often than not simply a matter of editing the tail of the loop to clean it up. Often a momentary level drop or editing off the last moment of the clip does the trick. No need for time stretching or anything "fancy."
