    Most of the loops you can download here have a common naming structure that makes it easier for you to find out who made it and where to get hold of it again in future

    For example ...

    looperman_111346_40676_Food Gathering.wav

    The first bit (looperman) just tells you which site you got it from..

    The next bit (111346) tells you who made it ..

    The next number (40676) represents the identity of the loop itself and allows you to find its page

    The last bit is whatever the person uploaded it named it at that time.

    I should add that it works the same way with acapellas and tracks too. The first is the artist id and the second is the item id

    Most excellent! I guess I can stop renaming them now.....and scrap my complaint about the id format.....I must add its an incredible improvement over the last site download id.
    Thanks Shan. This post should be have a permanent place on the front page....and FAQs if its not there already!

    Hmm, thats fine, but its still a pain having to hunt down the artist/track when you need the bpm. I now rename everything with the artists name track name & bpm (as noted) so I know what Im looking at when I want to use it!

    I cant see how it can be a pain when all you have to do is enter the id number into the search and you find what your looking for.

    Its done this way for a reason as people change their names or titles of things but the id never changes.

    its all done for a logical reason in the fist place to make things easier. by renaming things again you simply make things harder for yourself in the long run.

    if you want to add extra info update the ID3 meta tags and set them visible in explorer

    I did realize that the ID and loop numbers were the same, but when I uploaded songs in the past, (honestly, its been a couple of years now) there was not any names added on the end as there seems to be now. That was the improvement I was refering to. I would never have made this connection on knowing that number id format without this post....thanks again.

    Recently lost a project i've been working on for a while and for the life of me can't fine the loop again. If anyone knows the name of the electronic melody lead used in this clip please let me know!.
