    I record a 4 bar drum part.

    I successfully create a solid loop using these tracks.

    I export the looped tracks.

    I import the newly exported file to it's own track and - I now have a working loop in the new track.

    When I open the Loop Construction tool and click Looping so looping is now enabled, I am able to drag my loop out to the length I want it.

    I see the wave of my loop is extended out in that track.

    Now here's the problem,

    I can't get new extended version to play.

    If I turn off Looping in the Loop Construction tool or in the Groove Clip drop downs , the new repetitions on my new track disappear.

    I have found no way to get the new, extended drum track to play.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I stopped using Cakewalk when the close doors.
    The track look, is it set to audio with the right output ?
    Did you try to freeze the track ?
    Just thinking out loud...

    Just use bounce to tracks to put everything on a single stereo track. Trim your track exactly how you want it. R click on your new track and enable "groove clipping" you'll get a dialog box about the trimmed content. Select OK. Drag your track out as far as you want it. It will repeat forever.
