Working with Apple loops

Now that we've set up our song, let's start adding some tracks to it. My personal preference is to start with the drums or percussion in a song. Now as we know, there are number of different ways we can approach this. I could open up the Drums instrument and start playing out a pattern, I could open up the Smart Drums and start programming a pattern, but in this case I want to introduce some Apple Loops. Now to get to the Apple Loops I am going to have to switch to the Track View. And as you can see that pops up the Apple Loops button here in the interface, I'll tap that. Apple Loops are great to use if you're in a hurry or you just can't find the sound or instrument you're looking for. You can browse through the available loops, find a pattern you like, drag it into your song and just have it loop over and over or as long as you like to fill out your song.

So you can see here I can browse through 270 different loops, but that might not be the best way...
