This has been a problem with Sampler Tracks since Sampler Tracks were introduced. But now it seems audio tracks have the same inherent issues.
Create a project
Drag audio files from various folders / drives.
Create sampler tracks from any audio files
In Audio Pool, prepare archive (All files are copied to project folder, as expected)
Load project > Audio files are loading from the original file location, not the project folder.
This makes archiving projects safely impossible.
This issue was acknowledged by Steinberg years ago, but it has never been addressed.
When using Backup Project, audio files are copied to the correct folder, but Sampler Tracks still point to the original file location. Grrrrrrrr.
PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
