    I'm having a hard time finding any loops in 3/4 or 6/8. Everything is in 4/4 time. I really need to find a cool 3/4 loop that can go at 93bpm for a new song I'm working on.

    Any suggestions on how to find 3/4 loops on here?

    The simple answer is you won't. All the loops on this site are in 4/4, as say the rules. You can search 3/4 93bpm loops in Google and try and find some, but you won't get any here.

    There are actually some loops in odd time, but very few. I think this is because many people find it difficult to create loops in other time signatures while also fulfilling the guidelines. It can and has been done. Some people probably also have not indicated the odd time in their title or description,

    Seems that a loop search for 'time signature' brings up many loops other than 4/4. The problem is that you cannot search for the / character, so anything with the numerator and denominator comes up.

    The forum will not allow me to post a direct link to the loop search unfortunately, because of some html code...

    @Spivkurl Interesting - I haven't actually tried that - oops.
    @olinobnizov There's your answer! :D

    Hope that helps out! I know that I've uploaded at least a few in 5/4 and possibly 3/4... can't remember for sure.

    I made an obnoxiously simple 3/4 drum loop a long long, time ago in my old account I don't use anymore. https://www.looperman.com/loops/detail/61830/very-simple-beat-by-separateproductions-free-150bpm-hip-hop-drum-loop to try and advocate more people to think outside the box when it came to time signatures. I didn't realize that was going against the guidelines. I think there should definitely be an expansion on the loops section to include different time signatures and an easy drop down menu to find them.

    I think the key to a 3/4 loop upload, is to repeat it enough that it loops in line with the grid which is present on the waveform image. Of course the other guidelines apply, such as not having gaps or click, and that it loops properly. A single measure of an odd time signature may be rejected if it is not obviously aligned with the grid.

    if it says its 3/4 time in the description there is no reason it would be rejected based on time signature.

    if there is enough demand ill add an option to set the time signature for a few common ones

    i searched for 3 4 and found 3 loops
    and then i searched for waltz and found 21 loops
    and a search for 6 8 give me 2 loops ...
    all in all 26 loops

    I wanted to upload SO many 3/4 and 6/8 loops in the past, but I didn't want to do so to not confuse the ones who download my loops.

    Please Looperman, do add it! It's great to have a wider range of experimentation.

    @olinobnizov Try learning to make your own loops lol

    @Looperman

    I'd love to see 3/4 and *maybe* 6/8 signature.

    Would be great for the loop section, probably much needed too.

    Who else agrees, 3/4 and 6/8? They seem to be the most popular nowadays, from what I've seen.

    3/4 and 6/8 can be considered mathematically identical in a way. I think categorization based on an entered numerator and denominator would be far more versatile for uploaders and those searching for loops. May be more complicated for site design of course. This would allow for things like 5/4, 7/8, 9/12 and more esoteric signatures.

    My encounter with 3/4 and 6/8 time signature loops has been with mostly Blues loops I made a while back, and then there is Country and Western, Bluegrass and folk music. It could also explain to a lesser degree why they are not so commonly used or found that much.

    Man, 90% of music is in 4/4 and most loops will be too.
    Remember that a loop is something u use and change, u don't need to download a 4/4 loop and use it exactly like it was made.

    U can download a 4/4 loop, go to your daw, put it in 3/4 or another rythm, put the loop there, cut the last 1/4 of the loop, and it becomes 3/4.
    Really simple

    What u can't do is try and warp a 4/4 to 3/4 because it will fuck the rythm up. Hope I helped or made my self understood. Good luck

    3/4 and other odd meters are NOT prohibited here. Where'd you get that? I've published several odd-rhythm loops.

    anybody that does blues will be familiar with 6-8 and likely does a majority of their music in it...3-4 will be familiar to those who have any classical music background (its old-time waltz equivalent) There were many hits in both those time sigs...still are for those with varied listening habits...any musician with a bit of versatility should be able to help you out...although since you mention nothing about what instrument(s), key, key progression(s) or compositional structure I suspect some would not be likely to respond...good luck with whatever it is...cheers..Ed

    Here ya go: A slow waltz, in jazz feel, not classical. 93bpm, andante tempo.

    A jazz waltz is in 3/4, but it has a little bounce syncopation, as in this famous old pop hit of 1964:

    Here's another jazz waltz, interpreted by Natalie Cole in 2008. A famous old jazz tune that jazz cats all have to learn:

    With 6/8, there are two ways to play it: You can take the tempo slowish and give it a triple-meter, like waltz. Or you can spped it up, and give it a duple meter, so it has a rollicking, "onesey--twosey" feel, as in this famous Sousa march (aka, The Monty Python theme)

    Bob Dylan gave us a perfect 6/8 march, taken in duple meter, with THIS famous song:
