Building a Project

SampleSort is designed to find samples for you, with minimal input or fuss. You’ll notice there is no real file management functionality at present this is by design as the overall experience is that you already have a great tool for that, the Operating System itself.

Below you will find the various ways you can create a new project and import your sample libraries.

Creating a Project File

Before we can import samples we first need to create a project.

  1. Launch SampleSort.
  2. Go to the Search View.
  3. Click the Create Project button.
  4. In the Create Project dialog you can choose where to create the project and give it a name.

Backups!!

As you are working with SampleSort you can easily make a quick backup of the currently open project.

  1. Navigate to the Search view.
  2. Click on the Backup button
  3. This will create a backup of the file in same location but with a .bak suffix
