Can I use my own Samples/Loops in Phobos?

Last updated:

No, Phobos is restricted to the loops and samples that BT has created specially for this product.

    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/

    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 :-)

    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? :(

    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.

    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.

    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!
