Kit - Importing loop of a preview

Hi, this is my first question in here and please note I am a total newbie w. Maschine software, an MK3 and Komplete Kontrol S49mk2. So I bought the whole set :)
So I started to learn how to use the software and I finally got into the inner works on how the software works. Different patterns equals a scene etc. I bought the Rhythm source package and just now started to think:
As I scroll thru the kits, a kit always has a preview loop - can that loop be imported and modified?
If not - I would think this would be a really cool advantage. Assuming the loop is done as a pattern/midi and not a .wav-file.

    I think what the op is wanting to do is to load the example/preview loop into Maschine and then modify it. To use the preview as a starting point and modify the beat.

    @MjN as D-one mentioned, there's no way to do that. However, if you click on All Projects you can then click on one of the expansion packs and load a demo project made from that expansion. That will give you a place to start and you'll be able to change things up.

    PROBLEM 100% solved! Boris does the exact thing I was writing about, here https://youtu.be/YcSle_Cypzg?si=iWe-ddqSzbNOuVak&t=1352
    This is the exact thing I wanted to have and now I know how to do it. Tested and it works. I can take the preview pattern of a kit and load it, then tweak it.

    You would not want that, the previews are just an audio file, low-quality .ogg files to be more precise... If it was actually pattern/midi previews would take as much time to load as the actual kit, sort of defeating the purpose. The point of a preview is to quickly listen to how a Kit or Instrument roughly sounds without loading it.

    If you want that then just load the actual kit and then in Group mode use audio drag-and-drop to another Group, it will export-import for you into an Audio loop Pad.

    Took a quick look and I had not opened any demo songs yet. For example Rhythm Source has 12 demo songs - Did a quick test and I can copy a drum loop from those to a new project.
    The samples in the kits are good but I suck at beat/loop making. That is why I was thinking if the preview loop could be brought in as a ready pattern.

    Oh... That's just loading the Patterns normally, your not loading any previews, you're loading all the patterns in the kit.
