From Session to Arrangement - Help Needed

I have put together several clips that sound good together. I have applied various audio effects to the clips. I get a sound that I really like. From here I get lost. What I'd like to do next is to take this 'loop' and extend it out to a certain length (time) - but instead of just repeating the loop - I'd like the effects I've applied to continue across the entire time (many of these are randomizing type effects to enhance texture etc). 

I think what I need to do is get this into Session view? 

My ultimate goal here is to arrange these sounds into songs and/or mixes for a live/recorded set.


Thanks for any help, and let me know if I can provide further information.

    Yes, move them to arrangement for arranging a full track.
    As far as effects on loops is concerned: have a look at the 'link' /'unlink' function in your clip editor (select clip, see bottom left of the screen).

    This function allows you to unlink automation of fx from the loop length.
