How to import custom signals into Waveform Editor???

I can't seem to figure out how to import a custom signal into the Waveform Editor. I've tried a bunch of different .WAV files and it keeps telling me they are all too big. Even very small files like a simple 808 hit can't load. What am I doing wrong?

A simple 808 hit. If it was the, closed, hat, it would still, be, far, too long. The waveform editors are expecting something like a single cycle of a waveform. Though, how long the sample can be is based on time. I can't remember, exactly, how long you get. You can drop the sample rate, first, for longer sample time. Hope that helps.

You can put the file into the WAV editor of the sample instruments (Beatbox, PCMSynth) and grab out a very small portion (zoom in until you can see single sample dots). Use "crop" and save as a new file. This file can be put into the Subsynth VCO. It causes no real "sample playback", but the custom wave is repeated over and over again like the standard forms (sine, saw, triangle, ...).
