I know that each drum pad button on MainStage plays a note, and it's just incorrect to map that to a file. But I need a few sound effect for my project, and I have wave files for them. There's a couple thoughts I got, but how can I achieve them?

1. Map buttons directly to file
2. Create a new instrument containing those files
