I have a project in which I dragged audio files from my windows explorer into the Cubase sampler.
I see that the audio files weren’t copied into the project folder (I didn’t get a dialogue asking about it).
However when dragging from the Media Bay, the files are being copied.
In my preferences I have it set to copy all files:
How can I make Cubase copy all files into project folder by default?
If you drag and drop the files directly to the Sampler Track, the Import Audio settings (dialog) is skipped. You have to import the file to the project first. Then from the project to the Sampler Track.
