Let us import sound effects!!!!
I saw that you blocked us in the final release of Dreams the trick to record audio with a Pc.
Bring back the indreams way to do it because if not, we barely have sounds to make anything.
We don't even have animals or people sounds.
So please, fix this issue Mm.

Yup lazy, and copyright violators ruined it for everyone. It would be like youtube preventing you from importing audio into your videos because some people were loading copyrighted material on the site.
Yea it's just lazy to try and stop everyone from making their own sounds .
If Mm disallowed us to record audio threw a PC due to copyright, (which I believe that's the reason they did that) they should instead add a button to report copyrighted material. That way we can still record audio with a PC while at the same time prevent us from posting copyrighted material.
Please fix this issue. I'm making an AAA animation and I have to export voice of voice actors in the game.
Serious Bummer.. I bought the game with the pure intentions of being able to take advantage of my Music background and now they have limited a HUGE part of the game.1/3 If I had to boil it down to Gameplay, Scenery, and SoundDesign. Worst part is that I was having so much fun just going through tutorials to get to the step I find out is not even capable of happening anymore. Someone needs to take down all of those Youtube Videos that make it seem possible by computer bc they definitely have that blocked now; and you're limited to 20" of upload from DS4..
It's really very poor that a game that encourages such a breadth of creativity as Dreams has such shockingly limited audio options. Most of the Sound FX available are MM made and they are pretty limited. Bad enough that there is no way to 'mix-down' music made within Dreams as a single audio track to use in scenes WITHOUT spending precious gameplay thermo but the lack of sound effects is a real disappointment and I would have expected, for a game that has been in development for this long, for a suitable solution to have been implemented.

This makes it impossible to make any serious games within Dreams. I, for one, make games that are heavily focused on audio (dialogs and read narratives of my own writing) and this is a huge limitation to my creations. I was actually starting a new creation, but after I found out about this I'm thinking of quitting Dreams altogether. Hard to believe, really.
The main reason why is because people will upload music in Dreams that they do not own the rights to so MM have to be very careful since they can get sued for any music that appears in the game the game that players do not own the rights to. So you all should understand this.
Well now it’s 15 seconds and it disappears every time I use a male to male cord so that’s out of the question now
Is MM just totally silent on this?
Like, is the web upload coming back or not? I have years of original compositions to upload. I tried voice acting with a mic plugged into the controller and the quality was horrendous (as expected).
This is a SERIOUS limitation.
I was also looking forward to being able to do this. I have a lot of sounds that I've designed over the past few years that I figured everyone in Dreams--including myself--would love to create with. Dreams is still awesome, but that kinda bites.
This also goes for importing samples to use with the music sequencer.
I have a background in Sound design and recording, and I'm not even bothering to do anything to do with sound. I was looking forward to designing sound FX for my creations in ProTools and importing them in, but these restrictions leave a massive hole in the experience.
Shocked to see talk of a 15 sec limit- there goes my hope of incorporating voice acting!
Absolutely loving everything else though!
This is insane. How can you guys say you support creativity by killing musicians and composers with 15 secomd limits? Even people who do a lot of voice acting will be adversely affected by this. We need this axed. We also need another way to import our own audio files.
I totally agree.
well, they plan to reduce the recording time to 15 seconds, I seriously doubt they will bring back the import feature. People abused, we all get punished. Still I vote on that.
we need this game to help us, not deny us, they need a system to check for copyright
Ideal world be through a Dreams ”cloud” or files on usb disk.
I'd pay extra for access to "the kitchen", I'd also sign some hefty disclaimer if it meant I could finally get good quality audio in to Dreams. 4-pole cable to ds4 is pretty rubbish. I've bought 5 cables just to rule that out, used multiple controllers, but there's always a horrible phasing and the results are very poor, not up to the standards of the rest of Dreams.
I too would like audio import even in a limited way , say a max length of a few seconds per sample .
I have samples of fixed length or that require accurate looping for the frequency content, having to trim / loop recorded samples with sample accuracy can be tricky & leaves a lot of empty space in the recording taking up more memory than necessary .
I've just recently discovered Dreams a week ago, and it's the greatest thing ever..However, I am very disappointed that we can not import audio easily. Apparently from what I've read, during the beta there used to be a way to easily import audio online. PLEASE bring this function back!! I am an inspiring composer and sound designer who wants to easily import my own music and sound effects. I have tried importing my audio using a cable connecting my PS4 controller to my computer, but the audio quality is just not very good that way. I love everything about Dreams so far other than this, and this feature would be the difference between me staying addicted to this game or moving on fairly quickly. And if anyone uploads copyrighted material, I think banning them would be enough to deter others from doing it. Please make this happen, MM!!
