How to set Sampler default when dragging sample into new MIDI track?

I have a default setting I use for Sampler, but it only seems to work when inserting an instance of Sampler. When I drag a sample into the MIDI track it uses a different default setting, which I can't figure out how to change. Considering that this is how I get Sampler into the track most of the time, I'd love to find a way to reset its default!

    You may alter default settings to your liking, as follows:


    • Load an empty Simpler or Sampler from the Browser (it is important it contains no sample).
    • Alter the settings to your liking.
    • Locate the following folder in the Library, using the Live Browser: \Library\Defaults\Dropping Samples\On Track View
    • Drag the Simpler or Sampler from the Device view to that folder.
    • From now on, dragging a sample to the device view will use this Simpler or Sampler preset, with your own settings.

    I guess I'd like to know how to set those defaults. I just got Sampler and haven't played with it yet but I'd like to have pitch bend always set to the same value for every sample.

    Resetting Sampler back to factory presets: (keep in mind that this will delete your preset.)

    Click -

    User Library > Defaults > Instruments > [right click] Sampler > *Delete

    Load a "Sampler" on a Track. Make your default settings. Click on yor Sampler with Right Click. Choose "Save as Default Preset"
