Loops are a great way to create depth and layers in a mix but how can you make them even better? There are a lot of different ways you can take stock loops and make them your own. One way to spice up loops is to cut them up, this way you can rearrange and remix the loop to match your song. Using the grid and shuffle mode in Pro Tools makes it easy to rearrange the beats and make your own rhythm. Another great trick is to use Lofi, Compression, or Distortion effects to make the loops hit harder and sound dirtier. Pro Tools has many different stock plugins that can be used to get the job done. A great way to add diversity and contrast is to mash loops together. In Pro Tools you can easily cut and slice up multiple loops and combine them together to make your own interesting creations.
