so I could put my beats in there and record my vocals in my zoom r8
but every time I make a new folder and put my beats there
then go to track,take

i could put it in LOOP folder and get it from there
But I don't want to do it that way

Is it possible?

Based upon page 100 of the manual, you will likely have to create a dedicated project to hold these files, and use the "import from other project" function to access them (which will, of course, make a duplicate of the file in the active project).

The nature of the project info file is such that it can only refer to audio files that exist /in the project/ -- there is no path information to allow it to pull a file from elsewhere on the card.
