Importing Media

The Import Medium dialog lets you import files directly into the Pool.

To open the dialog, select Media > Import Medium, or click Import on the Pool toolbar.

This opens a standard file dialog, where you can navigate to other folders, audition files, etc. The following audio file formats can be imported:

  • Wave (Normal or Broadcast)

  • AIFF and AIFC (Compressed AIFF)

The following characteristics are possible:

  • Stereo or mono

  • Any sample rate


    Files that have a different sample rate than the project sample rate are played back at the wrong speed and pitch.

  • 8 bit, 16 bit, 24 bit, 32 bit, 32 bit float, or 64 bit float

  • Various video formats


You can also use the commands on the Import submenu of the File menu to import audio or video files into the Pool.
