Copying a Loop Throughout a Project
If you use an audio loop as a timing reference when recording, the loop needs to be copied throughout the project. Unlike a metronome, which will click away regardless of the point where the project is playing, a loop has to be copied for as long as you will need it. Once you've mastered looping, you'll be able to record without ever hearing a metronome again.
