The browser could use a few add ons to make searching users content slightly quicker/easier. Cubase has a very forward approach to the browsing of user content and makes it easier to filter file types like REX, MIDI, WAV and other files this way you can filter out file types your not looking for if you have a lot of the content with same names. 

Also you can add changes to the files meta data like ratings and letting the user change attributes such as style, tempo and key/pitch so you can setup search filters for your own content this is incredibly handy if you have 2 terabytes of user content.

But even a simple icons list to check uncheck would be great when searching user file content like the image below.

This is an absolute must. coming from pro tools and having used ableton. I need a fast way to sort and search.. I can look up kick...but what if its a kick loop or hi hat loop.  some for detailed filters would allow me to search for samples by time length thus all the one shots are filtered or vise versa. also searching for a kick may bring up aiff wav rex or whatever but what if I only want to see wav files.... how do we do this?  Thank you.
