I've ripped some samples from a PS1 game. Problem is, there are 301 of them. Is there anyway to, for multiple samples at once, simultaneously create a new instrument and automatically bind the sample to it? Even better if the same tool applies for presets.

Like, I seriously do not want to click "New Instrument" then "Bind Sample To" 301 times (and then have to do the same thing for presets).

Multiple ways of implementing this (all of which I tried):
After selecting all the samples you wanted, you could
1. Hover them onto the New Instrument button, up in the HUD;
2. Hover them onto the "Instruments" tree
THEN, after that, the program would automatically make a bunch of instruments at once, naming each one after its respective sample by default.

Ideally this same tool would apply to Presets, as well. The graphics already react to having you drag stuff onto them (as the screenshot shows), and there's a similar process already in place (dragging many samples onto one instrument), so it may be a question of retooling the "adding multiple samples to one instrument" scripts, I don't know.

A work-around would be to add an option to create more than one instrument/preset at a time, with the name you type in being repeated the same way Windows Explorer does it. If you type "BigLump" into the prompt, a bunch of instruments show up: "BigLump (1)," "BigLump (2)," etc.

This is a nice idea indeed. I propose to implement it this way:
  • select multiple samples,
  • drag them over the "instruments" node
  • a dialog will pop to display those options:
    • create an instrument containing all selected samples
    • create an instrument per sample
    • cancel the operation.

The same can be done with instruments when dropping them on the node "presets".
It's on the list for the next version:
