Hi Jonas
Would it be possible in a future update of Helix to add support for Helix to recognise userwavs placed in a subfolder of the cycles folder?

I suppose the "cycles" folder are the right one, it does include waveforms but still the manual is referring to a "waves" folder. Is this just a typo in the manual?
User Waveforms
Custom waveforms (singe cycle) are also
possible. In the folder "waves" you can
place loopable 8/16/24/32-bit MONO WAV
files, no larger than 4096 samples.

Aha...ha.. :oops:
Yeah...it's a typo alright. :dog:

That reminds me, I still have to finish my alternative version of the manual.

!!!!!!

But yes, basically you place all WAV files inside the CYCLES folder, and it will be seen by Helix on next load.

It would be possible, but I don't think it's very likely... there are so many other things I would like to do first... I'll keep it in mind though...

Sounds like a good idea for sometime, especially if someone wanted to stick e.g. all the Galbanum waves in there -- better to have them organized in subfolders.

It would be definitely nice to implement better waveform navigator with sub levels etc. I just dropped all my 4396 waveforms to cycles folder and tried to run the synth. It crashed my host (Live).

Speaking of user wavs. The only problem is the load time. It takes about a minute for Helix to load when there are 100s of waveforms in that folder.

If there was some way to load folders of waveforms through a menu command (on demand) within Helix that would be ideal.

Any chance of that happening in the future?

Actually, I'm testing with over 2000 files in my cycles folder and it takes about two seconds to open Helix.

I did and it worked fine. 2 seconds or less for me :)

What WOULD be neat however is if the folder, when placed in "cycles", branches out to other sub folders. The galbanum kit in itself is so large that it has dozens of folders, making it awkward to scroll slowly downward. Mouse wheel scrolling would be a just as acceptable alternative.

Btw, I started the folder name with the letter "z" to put it furthest down, to separate it from the built in folders :)
