Deleting factory Apple loops including dimmed ref.


Recommended Posts

What I wanted to do was clear all factory Apple loops from the Logic loop browser so I could just have my own ones that I make or buy.

The problem was that even after I deleted them, Logic kept reindexing them so they showed up the dimmed versions which is not what I wanted.

After lots of searching I think I have figured it out.


Deleting the loops from Library/Audio/Apple loops/Apple gets rid of the aiff files.


In Logic 10.4.4 I found the files in Applications. Logic. Show package contents/resources/AppleLoopindex.


If you delete everything in there and then delete the Database file in Users/Music/Audio Music Apps/Databases.


Restart Logic and reindex in the loop browser it will be empty.


Now you can add all your own stuff and none of the stuff you don't want.


I hope this helps someone.

You know, I was just about to get rid of those. I never use them, so nice tip. Thanks.


I spent ages searching for a way to do it and I know some people will say why bother. I just like having all the browser with files of my choice. You can go another step and use Apple loops utility software so you can tag all your own samples.

After learning that Producer Packs are not commercially licensable

That content has a different licence agreement to the rest of Logic's content? I'm surprised - where did you see this?

No worries, thanks for checking. To the best of my knowledge, and the license agreement, Logic's content is free to be used in commercial music - in fact, there have been numerous hit records featuring prominent and obvious Apple loops from Logic.

Remix sessions are something different - basically, a bit like commercial demo projects you can play with, but you can't use in your own works.
