Sample Browser -- The Sample Browser is a new tab in the Library that contains customizable paths to the audio samples users have curated-- this feature lets them use their own samples with Liquid Rhythm’s creative tools. Compatible file types include MIDI, WAV, and AIF. All they need to do to access samples is:

- Click the Add Folder button at the bottom of the pane.
- In the window that appears, navigate to the folder containing your sample library and click Open.
