And....how to do boolean searches? i remember it used to be possible in some old version...
Works only for user library searching so make sure you disable the 'store' button after searching. You may get a error message if you search the store with any advanced boolean search features.
Also - you can save and load your favourite searches by clicking on the magnifying glass.
The fancy search features below can be slower than using the tags or plain text searches.
Case insensitive. Just enter some text to use this search. It searches the file name, including the extension, but not including the folder name.
Use AND, OR, NOT and parentheses to refine your search.
Code: Select all
Reggae AND NOT Drum
kick OR (tom AND low)
Prefixes are easy to add to the software. We’ve added some for the most important fields.
Search by bpm using:
Search for a Tag searching, e.g.
Tags with spaces need to be in quotes, including the tag: prefix.
Searching for a tag includes all the sub-tags in the hierarchy of tags. So searching for tag:House includes all types of house music, and searching for
Will show all samples not tagged with any genre.
if you really only want to see items with the specific tag of house (and not the sub-tags of House).
You can also search by UUID, if you happen to know the UUID of the tag you are looking for. It looks something like this:
Code: Select all
You can get the UUID of a tag in the tag manager. The UUID may be useful if you end up with two tags with the same name. The UUID does not change if you rename a tag, nor if Loopmasters rename a tag, so may be a good option when writing scripts that may be used some time in the future.
Regular Expressions - Power User Tool
Nerd friendly and powerful. They let you perform magic. You can find all the files with WAV extensions that start with the word BASS and contain a number in the file name. If you can think of it regular expressions can do it. Regular expressions are also case sensitive, unlike our other kinds of search.
The regular expression format is documented here:
Folder name searches
These are case insensitive:
Again, use quotes around the whole thing if you need spaces in there, like
There are a few more of these features which I still need to document, but those are the most useful ones!
