Omnisphere can import single or multiple (hundreds) of audio files at once. The way in which the files are organized prior to importing determines how they are organized in Omnisphere’s Soundsource Browser and in your STEAM folder.

Importing Single or Multiple Files (not in a folder)

When importing single or multiple audio files, the files are saved to your User directory, in a folder labeled with the current date. This folder will show up in the Category column in Omnisphere’s Soundsource Browser.

That folder resides here on your drive:

  • STEAM/Omnisphere/Soundsources/User

Importing Directories (files organized in folders)

Omnisphere can import hundreds of audio files at once into multiple, custom-named directories. Importing using this method is a simple matter of selecting the top folder(s) containing the audio files and either dragging them into the User Audio pane or locating them via the File Dialog. They will be saved in your User directory and the top folder will show up in the Category column in Omnisphere’s Soundsource Browser.

The first three sub-directories below your top folder can be displayed by setting the Soundsource Browser to File Directory mode.

On your drive, the directories will be in the following location:

  • STEAM/Omnisphere/Soundsources/User

NOTE: Omnisphere will assign unique names to files that share the same name. If “Audio File Name” already exists in your User folder and you import the same sound (or a sound with the same name), it will be renamed “Audio File Name_2” when it is imported.

File Naming

Both macOS and Windows have prohibited characters for file names. Make sure that your imported audio files (as well as your custom Patch names) do not have any of the following characters:

  • < (less than)
  • > (greater than)
  • : (colon)
  • “ (double quote)
  • / (forward slash)
  • \ (backslash)
  • | (vertical bar or pipe)
  • ? (question mark)
  • * (asterisk)

That will ensure that your User Audio Files and Patches will load on any across both platforms.
