I'm having a problem with a loop I imported from audioshare. It won't play the first beat although it loops nicely in audioshare
Would you email me the loop? michael at atastypixel dot com
Ah, I see what's happening; the loop's a bit unusual because it has hard discontinuities. Loopy's seeing this mismatch between last and first sample, and automatically applying a small microfade, under the assumption that it's not a seamless loop. This is deliberate, as otherwise one will ordinarily hear a hard click.
Your loop looks like this at the start:
Loopy's doing this:
You can trick Loopy into avoiding this microfade by making the first couple of samples zero. Try this version.
