How are samples loaded into the Solaris, and what format is used?

Sample files are loaded from Compact Flash cards in this method for the 1.0 release:
1) Sample files need to be in .raw format. 
2) The samples need to be described in a text file. The name, number, sample start and end, loop start and end, root key, fine tune values, low and high keys need to be listed in this text file (see this forum post for example). This text file is what makes up a 'sample pool', and you can have several on the CF card.
3) The samples and text files are loaded via computer onto your CF card.
4) The Sample Pool is selected from the System page and loaded into the Solaris for use in any of the four oscillators.
