Opening Files in Apple Loops Utility

You can open audio files from within Apple Loops Utility or directly from a Soundtrack Pro project. You can have up to 2000 files open at the same time. When you open files in Apple Loops Utility, the files are displayed in the File list of the Assets drawer.

  • Choose File > Open Recent, then choose a file from the submenu.

To open multiple files in Apple Loops Utility
Do one of the following:

You can have multiple Apple Loops Utility windows open at the same time so that you can compare different files.

You can change the open window behavior in the Apple Loops Utility Preferences window. See Apple Loops Utility Preferences for more information.
