    ///Only files can be deleted.///

    Since patches are seen as folders and not files; I can not delete or copy any patches.
    It only allows me to delete individual files inside of the folders, so I do not understand the use of this.

    Am I missing something?

    @min yu I mainly created this tool to work with samples. I often use the Recorder and Prairie loops patch which can produce a lot of files. I wanted to be able to delete those audio files or use them in other patches by copying them.

    It can also be useful if you want to swap samples e.g. in the DrumBank-240 patch.

    Thank you for the patch and the work in it.

    For organelle m users like me that do not find the system folder in the access point i suggest creating a dedicated folder in the patches folder, it works perfect for me.

    The only thing I miss in it is to be able to change the names of the files, some sampling patches need to rename the audio patches with certain names as 1.wav etc 🥲

    @Joaquim Salvador Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. I could image adding a rename function which would allow you to rename a file to 1.wav – 24.wav.

    @axlwaii thank’s mate. I’d do it my self but i’m still on the very basics.

    Anyway someone just uploaded a revision of your patch with renaming functionality, i’ll try it as well 😋

    @Joaquim Salvador I added a rename function which allows you to rename wav files from 1.wav – 24.wav.
