Welcome to Apple Loops Utility

Some audio files you use in Soundtrack Pro can include metadata called tags. Tags provide information about the audio recorded in a file. Apple Loops Utility is a companion application to Soundtrack Pro that you can use to view and manage tags in audio files.

Soundtrack Pro uses tags in one of two ways: to help locate files using the Search feature in Soundtrack Pro, and to provide information that Soundtrack Pro uses when matching the file’s tempo and key to the project tempo and key—for the best possible playback quality.

Both AIFF and WAV file formats can include tags. Libraries of audio files created for use with loop-based music software are usually tagged, and Soundtrack Pro recognizes the tags used in most popular file formats.
