Well, you notice that my Favorites selector is grayed out. I haven't chosen any favorites yet. I saved that because I wanted to show you how to do that. So I am going to Show All, Signature 4/4, Scale Any and search for world, W-O-R-L-D, and hit Return, and up pop a bunch of world things. Now, you are not going to choose the same ones that I am going to choose by the way. You will choose your own favorites, but I will show you how to choose a few favorites and you can take it from there. So the pieces that I want are down here toward the bottom.
I actually want this World Muted Guitar, I will add it to my Favorites, and now Favorites is not grayed out. There is actually something in there now. I do want this World Fretless. That's a bass and I want World Drums 01. And just for kicks, I think maybe I will grab one of these Shakuhachis. Clear this world search and just go to Favorites. Ta-da! There are my four loops I just chose as favorites. If you decide later on that you really don't care for that loop so much anymore, you can unfavorite it by clicking here.
Now, I don't want to have to re-search for them so I am not going to unclick it, but there is your list of favorites. From inside your Favorites, you have lots of choices too. You can narrow the search down to guitars and now there is only one guitar in my Favorites. So, if you Reset, go to Favorites, there are your Favorites again. You can do the same thing with your Favorites as you did with any other loop. You can play it in the song key, play it in the original key. It too will conform itself to the tempo of your session and you can sort by tempo and key and name and reverse name.
So that's another great rainy day project is to go through some of these loops and find some things you want to work with. That way, you can jump right in and start writing when you get a project.
