Please make it possible to select sounds like the one for the alarm clock from files.Currently only add from music library is supported. It is very annoying to add alarm sounds to the music library.

EDIT: Today it happened again. My alarm tone hammered with full volume when I was running and selected shuffle all. Please fix this very very annoying bug.

I use this alarm sound: http://www.freesound.org/people/joedeshon/sounds/78562/ @Jolla please try to use this as alarm sound and to not get annoyed when playing normal music and it comes up.

Apart from probably annoying volumes, the selector should at least provide a possibility to choose between "Select from music files" and "Select from files". It would be even better to remove "Select from music files" completely.

Having to add files to tracker manually to be able to select them as sounds is tackling the issue in kind of a roundabout way - preventing this is what UX design is about.

It's not obvious why sound files should be part of the music library: They're cluttering the already quite fragmented ID3-only based view even more and it takes ages to search for them with a decent amount of music on the device.
