Understanding Grainstates SP

I am still exploring Reaktor Ensembles and I am trying to understand Grainstates SP. If I click on the waveform, an extra pane opens at the bottom where I can load other soundfiles. There. are already 4 waveforms by default. However, when load a new wave, I don't hear any difference and I don't see the waveform at the top change. What am I doing wrong?

    On the bottom of this page

    you can download Reaktor 5 manuals. One of them is the instruments reference with a description of all ensembles comming with R6 incl. Grainstates SP.

    I know that. I have the manual open. My issue was with the soundfile seemingly not changing. In the meantime, I figured out that in the globals section, the left knob selects the sample. However, only when I removed the default samples, it really loaded my samples.

    On the whole instrument: I see it as basically an instrument that is replicated 8 times. Many Reaktor ensembles seem to be that: one instrument replicated several times.

    It works with sample maps. Go to the map editor and create your own map.
