Hi all.

I want to use my custom samples. I searched here and got some clues which are :

#1. SuperDirt.start(path:"/My/Path/*")

#2. ~dirt.loadSoundFiles("/My/Path/*")

1 Does not working even I can't use default samples such as 'bd' or 'sn' But I saw this message from the supercolider Post window :

loading 50 sample banks:

... file reading complete

  1. does not working neither but also I got the same message from Post window. In this case, I could use default samples just could not use my custom samples.

Lastly, I have put my custom samples into '{MyPath}/Library/Application\ Support/SuperCollider/downloaded-quarks/Dirt-Samples' It's working everything properly. However I want to split the path of my custom samples in order to do maintenance easier.

What am I doing wrong?

Tried with the wildcard and similarly it is not working for me either. I removed the wildcard like so:


I can now access all diphone samples. Currently the site shows to use a wildcard so perhaps it is an issue to be raised.

It works only the path is 'Library/Application\ Support/SuperCollider/downloaded-quarks/Dirt-Samples/...' If I set the path as '/Volumes/Data/Users/{USER}/Downloads/...', it dose not work.
