Hi Niko.

In the future, would it be possible to add a preview-audio-file whenever importing a sound to coppercube please? EG: when browsing the sounds, they are previewed automatically in the browser.

I have thousands of sounds (which I've converted to .ogg format for use in coppercube) but they are not conventionally named, so I have to guess which is the correct file (or preview them externally) before I can import them into coppercube.

No big deal really but it would be a very handy feature for me as it does sometimes break my work-flow having to switch between Coppercube and sononym just to preview the sound-samples.

Thank you!

Can't you just do that in Sound manager window of coppercube?

can also use VLC playlists for all these tiny sound fragments

then you can also sort through the sound metadata
which is much handier.

MusicBrainz Picard is a multi-platform open-source tool that lets you easily add metadata to your music files. And there are many more tools.

Thanks both.

Unfortunately, I think the sound manager can only preview sounds already loaded into coppercube, I can't find a way for it to preview sounds which haven't already been loaded into the project.

VLC metadata and tags is good idea - I own sononym which has already catalogued my entire library with metadata and tags - the main issue is that coppercube can't search using metadata or tags and also doesn't support drag-and-drop audio files.

I may be wrong but I think the only way to load sounds into coppercube is to use the built-in file browser and manually look for the specific file by name.
