Downloading the same LP X content over and over? [SOLVED]

Thu Jul 18, 2013 4:42 pm

I open the Drummer plug-in , click on a preset and I get a message that I am missing content, do I want to download it. So I do.

I wait until it is finished and "installing." When it appears to be done, I close Logic and start again. and the same thing happens. I swear this must be the third time I seem to be downlaoding the same content.

OK now it wants to do this a 4th time. :cry:

"Essential Instruments' ,"Drum Kits",etc. all theoretically downloaded after hours and I says that it is all being "installed" , progress bars and everything, and seemingky finishes.

I quit Logic X, reopen it, open a new empty project, choose Drummer and it wants to do it all over again. :roll:

Try repairing your disk permissions in Disk Utility.

I tried that.

Clearly, the material has been downloaded and installed. My suspicion is that it is installed either in the wrong place or or some reason, Drummer is just not linking to it.

I've re-installed it eight times now, actually it did it a ninth time when I just opened now.

Hopefully it's done now... it's taken 1.5 days so far.

Not a very cool installer.

I don't think repairing disk permissions will help anything, but theoretically it could be a Spotlight problem. Perhaps give Spotlight some time to index.

I noticed that my internet traffic would drop to zero, I would get a Logic cannot complete file download message.

Later in the evening on the west coast USA, I didn't have any issues downloading.

I did have better success downloading smaller chunks, vs cueing all files.

Yes, apparently it may still be more content.

Also, I have my Sampler Instruments and EXS samples on another drive that the Sampler Instruments alias in my user folder points to and now it wants it in the User > Music > Audio Music Apps folder.

I too was having hassles with the content downloads and I needed it on several macs.

One way you can get around this is to download the installers. A neat trick is to copy these links into a text file and use Firefox with the DownThemAll add on. Open the the DownThemAll manager right click and import the text file and it will do it's thing.
Hope this helps.

Just realised that it may not be easy for some to copy the above links and paste them into a text file for the Firefox & DownThemAll trick.
So here's the text file.

Start the download of the content via Logic then close Logic and cancel the download. Use Finder to go to "/private/var/folders/" and find "com.apple.MusicApps"
Using Text App you can see the link in the ".resumeDataMA" file.

Some of these links, instead of turning to a solid bar stay "barber pole". When they do, then when you install them, the installation fails.

This is why I suggest using a download manager like DownThemAll in Firefox. :wink:

I tried it and cannot get it to work. The help file only talks about downloading content from a webpage. Can you give me a step by step?

I had the same problem a few days ago. I had to turn on Spotlight on my main drive. I had turned Spotlight off on all of my drives. Go into System Preferences/Spotlight/Privacy and remove the main drive from the Prevent Spotlight from searching these locations. After I did that everything went smooth.

In Firefox go >Tools > DownThemAll! Tools >Managed
In the DownThemAll main screen right click and select >Advanced >Import from File
In the Import Downloads dialog change Format to Text Files
Browse to the logicprox-content.txt file and select it
Select all the links and right click and select Check Selected Items
Select where you want to save the files and click Start!

Thank you! This appears to be working really well. I reinstalled Logic Pro X and then started this. I assume the "skipped" files were in the basic install

.If you like, pm me our address and I will send you autographed copies of my 2 Logic Pro books. Not that you probably need them.

Jay, you will need to download all the files and run each installer. These will not detect and determine what files are already installed. So you need try download all of them.

Thanks, will PM you.
