Can I use my own Samples/Loops in Phobos? April 11, 2017 09:02 Follow No, Phobos is restricted to the loops and samples that BT has created specially for this product.

"Error #5 something went wrong" in Spitfire instrument Comments 19 comments Sort by Date Votes Michael Bastedo May 11, 2017 08:54 Edited I had the same question. I'm disappointed with the answer. To be able to use Phobos like you can use Absynth as a filter for your own sounds would make not only the price more palatable it would open up vast new possibilities. You can purchase Zebra for $199. Being able to use four Zebra sounds or Omnisphere in Phobos would be wonderful/ 0 Comment actions Permalink BOBBY LANZA May 11, 2017 17:29 I definitely agree that limiting the loops and samples to just those from BT (although they are great!), is missing out on a huge opportunity for sound exploration and customization. I would really love to see this changed :-) 1 Comment actions Permalink Ben May 12, 2017 09:19 Hi folks and thanks for the feedback. We'll be taking this into account as we move forward with our product decisions in the future! 1 Comment actions Permalink Nik Racine June 02, 2017 10:21 Sample import is all I ask! 1 Comment actions Permalink Eric Freeman June 17, 2017 03:35 Wow, I could swear I read a review saying you could. Big disappointment, my whole point in buying was to apply to my own samples. Now what? :( 0 Comment actions Permalink Justin Melland September 16, 2017 00:33 Imagine being able to record a bass drum and then load it into the convolvers!!! Are there some one shot samples in here? I haven't found them yet. This thing could be the ultimate BOOM designer. BTW, very intuitive and well thought out design. Although, it would be pretty cool to implement a MIDI LEARN feature. 1 Comment actions Permalink Luka Lebanidze November 07, 2017 02:12 Please make sample import possible. Also adding Phobos as an effect on a track would be fantastic! to use the track as an input source and apply BT convolvers. 1 Comment actions Permalink Eric Freeman November 07, 2017 03:31 Ben, any further updates on sample import? Thanks! 0 Comment actions Permalink Ben November 07, 2017 09:23 Hi folks, just to clarify: At its core, this product was conceived as a sample library with extra functionality built in, it was never intended to be used with samples or loops other that what is provided with it. However, as I said above, we are listening and I'll make sure that your feedback is fed back to the company. Thanks!

Not being able to load custom samples is the reason I'm not buying Phobos. 0 Comment actions Permalink Eric Freeman December 14, 2017 15:19 Ben, I'm taking that as "it's never going to happen". 0 Comment actions Permalink Paul Preston December 31, 2017 04:09 This missing feature is the only reason keeping me from purchasing. Hope you will upgrade this otherwise awesome looking tool soon. Be great! Paul 0 Comment actions Permalink Erik G January 24, 2018 23:33 Agreed with everyone!

As you've already addressed the sample import issue, I don't want to come across as hassling or nagging, but I have to add my voice to the chorus here and say, PLEASE! - it would be amazing to see this feature installed, the increased production and live performance implications would be incredible. At the moment I'd love to buy the product, but as others have said, this missing feature is the only thing keeping me from purchasing. Hopefully this goes through 0 Comment actions Permalink Eric Freeman March 28, 2018 03:23 Just to add to this, although it is anecdotal, I have a couple friends who have recently passed on the purchase of Phobos because of this limitation. I love Spitfire products, this one product being the exception, and I'd love to see this aspect improved, especially given this is Spitfire's first native plugin. 0 Comment actions Permalink Ian Dean August 01, 2018 15:29 I have had BT Phobos since it was released and, like those above, would appreciate some development of this expensive product, especially the ability to upload custom samples. Thanks for listening! 1 Comment actions Permalink Eric Freeman August 01, 2018 15:31 It would be great to have an official response one way or another. 0 Comment actions Permalink Yan-pierre White January 12, 2020 22:19 Using my own samples would be the ONLY feature I would be interested in using.I'm an independent artist that plays many instruments, interested in convolution for a long time.The whole paradigm of closed systems is like a tangleweed on creativity and originality.Please consider expanding this to encourage and include creative artists, as well as sound designers. The world does not need another 1 finger preset monster! 0 Comment actions Permalink Bendik Engebretsen July 16, 2020 06:39 I'm joining the fairly unison choir here: Please, please, please consider WAV import and MIDI learn. Phobos is a fabulous concept for a synth! But the lack of sample import makes it much harder to develop your own, personal sound (which any serious composer wants of course). Because of the lack of MIDI controller support, it's also cumbersome to use for typically cinematic music that over time develops in timbre and style. I agree that it is rather expensive, and I strongly believe you could expand the market significantly with these features added. And yes: An official response would be great! 0 Comment actions Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
