No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no nooooooooo!!!
The audio is fucked up on my PC. I just got the damn thing a few months ago, what the fuck? Right side is playing louder than the left by a wide margin. Multiple pairs of headphones reveal the same thing, while they all work fine on my phone. Kill me right now.

I scouted @GoldiePanda, just to find out that this user uses GarageBand loops. Shit. I'm just trying to get more artists on the portal, and I've been hitting that scout button/link on a lot of pages lately. I need to slow down, apparently.
Hey, Goldie, don't be discouraged. I used to midi rip all the time. You'll get it eventually, just keep trying!

I'll only reply to helpful reviews. If your review is ass-kissing, hateful or doesn't make sense, I don't bother.
I'm also making preparations to leave Newgrounds before the end of the year. I'm hoping (before I leave) to find the time to put together a few resources for new musicians, plus a pack of midi files of original material I've made. I'll still make music until the point where I leave. A few of you already know why I am leaving.

I have a formula for the length of your loop based on the tempo and number of measures, where L = the length of the loop in seconds, B = BPM, T = the number of beats per measure (the top number in your time signature) and M = the number of measures your loop spans.
L = M×(60/(B/T)
If you don't understand algebra well enough, I'll explain. Divide your BPM by the number of beats per measure (if you're using 4/4, then it's obviously divide by 4; if it's 3/4, divide by 3). Then do 60 divided by that result. Then multiply by the number of measures. You'll probably end up with a weird decimal number most of the time, so use that zoom feature and use the nearest sample (those little dots you see when you zoom in very close; those are called samples). Once you're done highlighting, use Export Selected Audio and you're good to go!
Example: my song is 120 bpm with a 4/4 time signature. I have 32 measures in my loop. 120 divided by 4 is 30. 60 divided by 30 is 2. 2 times 32 is 64. My loop is 64 seconds (1 minute, 4 seconds) long. In my DAW, I make my loop run 3 times back to back. After mixing it down to a wav file, I would import that file into Audacity and highlight (to the sample) from 1:04 to 2:08 (minus one sample at the end). I use Export Selected Audio in the file menu, and export a perfectly looping mp3 file. Bam.
If you'd like to see a demonstration of this, I made a video doing it myself.
