Supported Multi-sample and Loop formats

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

Supported Multi-sample formats:

  • GigaStudio

Supported sample loop formats:

  • REX files are supported in Live Standard and Suite. These can be loaded into audio tracks and will play at the tempo of the Set. REX files can also be sliced to a new MIDI track. 
  • ACID Loops are supported, as they are WAV files with additional ACID loop tags. Live will not, however, make use of the specific ACID loop tags. 
  • Soundtrack Loops are supported as they are in AIFF format. Live will not, however, make use of the specific Soundtrack loop tags. 


If you're having difficulties importing samples or if the format is not supported, it may be necessary to convert them first. Chicken Systems Translator offers a paid file conversion solution from and to most popular formats.
