Move loop question: move a 16-bar loop by just 1 bar (forward or backward), is it possible?

I have searched for this question but didn’t find it in this forum nor anywhere. Not even in the User manual.

If I create a loop of a certain length (let’s say, 16-bar loop), I can move the loop the same length backward or forward, by clicking shift while turning the auto-loop knob. However, if I want to move the 16-bar loop by just 1 bar (backward or forward), I don’t know how to do it. I think it’s not possible?

Btw, I work with quantize enabled.

Any help would be much appreciated

This is a good question @ElTitoFranki, thank you for asking. You can only set an auto-loop of any size (1/32 bar - 64 bars) and move said loop back/forward the same bar amount as you looped. To clarify, if you set an 8 bar loop you can then move it forward or backward, but it will move 8 bars because that is what you have set as the loop duration.


Thanks for your answer @Nekoro_DenonDJ. It would be very nice to be able to move loops in this way, I use it a lot. Is there any place where I can ask for this feature as a feature request?

Btw, I am very happy with the SC5000 players.


We see your request @ElTitoFranki and we’ll relay it our team, thanks again for your input!

Nekoro, I’m new to the forum also maybe you can point me in the right direction. But I’d love to submit a feature request that would allow a user. to move loop of any size by a chosen amount. Moreover, when moving the loop, the track would remain playing in that loop, rather than continue playing in a sqeqnetial timeline until the new loop in point is reached This is a feature that Traktor users currently enjoy. It enables a particular style of Mixing popular with many DJ’s. . See here for a good example,.

Hi @MoJoe, welcome to the forum.

See here:

Thanks Reese. So, if I’m following correctly, it hasn’t been solved? also, there is this other issue which is interconnected

Not solved, it is still a request. And yes, we try to avoid double requests, but they still slip through…

One deals with moving a loop with another value than loop-size. The other is the loop move with seamless audio.

I’ll close this topic. Go ahead and add/like to the other topics.
