I am trying to remove 3 wave file from a wave bank and from my project, but I am totally unable to do so.
The only way I have is to move the obsolete wave file into a new "dump" wave bank, but then, I cannot delete the "dump" wave bank because it`s not empty. So I am stuck with those 3 files that I want OUT of my project.
Am I missing something here or is FMOD unable to remove a wave file from a project?
I tried to remove the file physicaly, but then FMOD freaks out because it cannot find it.
Can anyone show me how to do this? I am clueless right now, totally…

If you right click on the file there should be an option that says something like "Go to ‘Name of Sound definition’" You have to delete the files from the sound definition first. When you do that, if the files aren’t used anywhere else it will ask you if you want to remove unused files. Click yes. If by chance you don’t click yes, you can still remove the files from the bank by going to the edit menu and selecting clean project. This however deletes ALL unused files, so be wary in case you loose anything you intended keeping, but weren’t using in an event at the time.
As far as I know it’s impossible to delete a file directly from a wavebank.

In the current version of designer, if you delete a sound definition from an event and Designer detects that it is no longer in use a dialogue will pop up allowing you to delete the unused wave from the bank at that moment without having to clean the project. If you’ve said no on that dialogue but still want to delete it, its sometimes easier to put the sound in question in an event and delete it again so the dialogue shows – especially if you have a lot of unused sounds floating around in your project for later use.
Its worth noting that Designer won’t include an unusued waveform in the banks at build time anyway so it arguably doesn’t matter if you have unused waves floating around.

The lack of options to delete a wave form got me in a bind when setting up resources. I had all the Wave banks going, all the settings right, but if no wave forms are inside them, they get deleted in a ‘clean up’ action.
If i want to delete all the wave forms through the ‘delete sound definition’ approach, it deletes the wave bank they are inside as well, if no other wave forms are inside it. And I don’t want them!
In the end I inserted some ‘token’ wave forms, made token sound definitions, token sound events…just so I could safely use the clean up function. But to be honest…really…what is the idea behind the lack of option to delete wave forms?
