MIDIExtractor does not understand comp:\ variable

Fusion version: 9, but older versions as well



OS and version: Win10



Additional relevant system info:



Description of the bug:
When opening a MIDI file and using the comp:\ variable (like comp:\mySong.mid) the MidiExtractor will not work.
Loading the same file with a full path (like X:\songs\mySong.mid) works just fine.

Severity (Trivial, Minor, Major, Critical)
Annoying...:-)


Steps to reproduce:



Please, if possible, provide a Fusion setup to help demonstrate the behaviour, either as an attachment or between [code] tags:

Confirmed in Fu9 and Fu16.

In fact, confirmed as behaviour in Suck Less Audio, so it seems the comp:/ variable can't be used for paths in Modifiers.
