This feature combines the functions of adding an Object and adding a soundset or an audio file to the soundset. When selected, a finder window will open and you can navigate to a desired folder to import an audio file. 

Tip: MacOs users can preview the file in the opened finder window. 

Once imported to the selected parent Object, a soundset will be attached and the audio file will be imported to the soundset. 

If you select multiple audio files, a unique Object - soundset combination will be created for each file.


Add Audio → As Soundsets...

Rename Object
The default name of each new Object is numerical. Selecting this feature allows you to change the name of the desired Object and must be done at each Object level. Please note that periods cannot be used and will automatically be replaced with an underscore.
