One thing really annoying about Padshop Pro is that when loading your own sample into it, Padshop always duplicates / copies the sample into its own folder, the one called ‘user samples’ located in the Sternberg Padshop main folder. Why is that? Every granular synths I own don’t do that, they simply load up & save the sample in their buffer when a preset or a daw session is saved, they dont duplicate the samples somewhere else on the hard drive every time. After a while if you have experimented and try hundreds of samples over time, this can eat & waste a lot of space!
Why can’t Padshop not work like any other granular synths outhere and not copy the samples into another folder each time you load a sample into it? Any idea on the reason behind that?
