How do I upload/import audio to Soundscape ?

You will need to use the  Pack creator to do so, which you can access via the main menu of the Arkenforge Launcher. Please keep in mind that the Pack creator only supports .ogg or .wav files to import, so mp3/flac files need to be converted. You can use a free converter like this (Thank you Leigh Pierce for suggesting it!).

If you would like to import individual instruments in a song, and then be able to control those individual instruments, just like with official assets, you will need to have an export of all audio layers in .wav or .ogg format, and name them in a specific way for easy import : Song title_Instrument name. Therefore sound files regarding to a song called “Here are the pirates” would look like this :
Here are the pirates_Drums.ogg
Here are the pirates_Violins.ogg
Here are the pirates_Flutes.ogg

Naming multi-layered songs this way will automatically group them when imported!

Step by step tutorial to import SFX into a pack:

SFX’s are one-off audio files, to time and add to an ambience, or place it on the Quick access SFX tab of Soundscape. These files also need to be in .ogg or .wav format!
To increase variety in your SFX, we recommend tying multiple soundfiles to a single SFX. You can achieve this by naming your files in a certain way: Filename_order. An SFX named Sword would be named like this:
Sword_1.ogg
Sword_2.ogg
Sword_3.ogg
Naming SFX this way automatically groups them at import, and ties them under one SFX button.

Step 1 : Click on the SOUND FX tab in the Soundscapes section of your content library:

Step 2 : Click on Add SFX, navigate your browser to the folder where your .ogg or .wav ambience files are. Select one file by clicking on it,  or multiple files by holding the ctrl button while clicking the selected files. If you would like to select all audio files within a folder, click the first file then hold shift, and click the last item to highlight them all, then click Open:

Step 3 : Optionally fill out the tags (separated by a comma) to find your SFX easier within your library!
