Lines, Kits, and Loops

What is a Line?

Lines are collections of sounds that fit a common theme and musical purpose. Each Line contains a curated set of Kits and Loops designed to fit a musical theme. For instance, the Drum Sesh line consists of live drum sounds, the Toys line has obscure, playful musical instruments, and Field of Sounds consists of all ‘found sounds.’ Each line has its own flavor, and will continue to be fed with new Loops and Kits every day. We’ll also continue to roll out new Lines over time.

What is a Kit?

A Kit is a collection of Loops mapped across the 15 White Keys in ARCADE. All Kits within a Line are setup to have a similar combination of Macro controls, Modulation, Effects, and Modifiers. This makes it easy to switch through Kits in a Line.

What is a Loop?

The basic building blocks of ARCADE are Loops. Loops are audio recordings that play back seamlessly to your heart’s content. Your ARCADE subscription gives you unlimited access to download every Loop we offer royalty-free (please see our Terms of Use for full details).  You can also use your own Loops in ARCADE by dragging and dropping onto a key.

Since we’re always adding fresh content to ARCADE, when we have new Lines, Kits, or Loops, you’ll see a yellow New and/or star icon label like this:
