As stated on https://www.loopcloud.com/cloud/faq:
What are the limitations of Loopcloud’s free version?
The free version of Loopcloud still has much of the same great functionality as the paid version. All of your purchases from Loopmasters can be added and tagged, as well as any previous Loopcloud purchases you might have. The free version includes two tracks instead of eight and doesn’t include effects adjustment or the ability to search and download samples individually with monthly points. It doesn’t pitch edited regions or allow users to expand the range of content for the Loopcloud Plugin suite of VST instruments. Free users also cannot import new user-content or use the AI user-content tagging, which is new to Loopcloud 6.
So If you do not subscribe and use Loopcloud as a sample manager for your collection: DO NOT update to version 6!

(p.s. from my trial the subscription is not really worth it as you only get this in addition to non-cripled plugins:
* You may download 10 free samples a day (but not any sound, just those same samples that are also available as free sample packs from loopmasters for the same loop/soundpacks without any daily download limit)
* 100 points to spend on a hand full of sounds)

Any recommendations for other Sample Managers? Anyone used the ADSR one?

Well, there is XO, but it's mostly for drum hits for the looks of it. Also I find it really overpriced by a factor of 5 to 10. Then there is Sononym which is still a little expensive for my taste, but seems to be better for phrases as well as drum hits and a little closer to loopcloud regarding functionality.
And of course ADSR is also worth to look at (it was the best imho before loopcloud came along and might retake that spot now).
