Custom Sound set from existing sounds; No import?

Hello Guys,
I want to make some new unit sound set, and I am aware that I should use one of the existing sound sets to make my sound set. But I am wondering, if I want to make the sound set from some sounds existing in warcraft already, in other unit's sound sets, do I have to export these sounds and importing them again and using that imported sound in my sound set? Or is there a way where I can use these existing sounds and putting them in any set I want? (and if I have to import, is there some path trick to just import pseudo file and set his path to the sounds I want? like can I just import 5.txt files and then set there custom path as Units/Arthas/YesAttack1 or something like that?)


What I exactly want to do is basically use the sounds existing in SylvanusWindrunner soundset as followis:
Particular Sound of my unit = Particular sound of the original set
what 1 (of my unit) = what 2 (of Sylvanus Windrunner)
what 2 = what 3
what 3 = pissed 1
pissed 1 = pissed 2
Yes 1 = what 1
Yes 2 = what 4
Attack 1 = Warcry
Attack 2 = pissed 3
attack 3 = pissed 4
Warcry = pissed 5

left click the sound editor; right click the sound you want to use. Select "use as sound".
Now go to the trigger editor and the sound you want to use should be available there.

Use Shandris soundset?
I did think of that, but I am not really a fond of her sound set, she sound more like a woman than Ranger

Look at sylvanus pissed 5 "COME TASTE THE WRATH OF THE ELVES" (which i will use to warcry)
and Shandris Warcry (Fa yer!) she just sound.... unporffesional ranger

Besides, I might even use shandris herself for the night elven hero so i gotta use another soundset.

You could easily trigger it, I suppose. I don't think there would be any other way other than to re-import the sounds.

I used Shandris' sounds because I didn't spend the time to find Sylvanas' :p

Anyways, I made some triggers:

  • Init
    • Events
      • Map initialization

      • -------- What Sounds --------
      • Set SylvanasSounds[2] = ShandrisWhat1 <gen>
      • Set SylvanasSounds[3] = ShandrisWhat2 <gen>
      • -------- Attack Sounds --------
      • Set SylvanasSounds[4] = ShandrisWarcry1 <gen>
      • -------- Yes Sounds --------
      • Set SylvanasSounds[5] = ShandrisYes1 <gen>
      • Set SylvanasSounds[6] = ShandrisYes2 <gen>
      • -------- Death Sound --------
      • Set SylvanasSounds[7] = ArcherDeath1 <gen>

Now, there are a few problems with this system. First, the portrait does not look like it's talking. Second, I couldn't get it to work when the unit moves. It plays no sound when you order her to move. Perhaps someone can help with that. Anyways, I really hope this works for you!
