Where to put the jam pack when installing L8 on macpro

Can I move the samples and loops to a second drive?

Thanks

 

Yes. Assuming this is a standard installation, go to /Library/Audio/ and copy the Apple Loops to the disk you want to do. Then rename the Apple Loops directory inside /Library/Audio. Next make an alias of the Apple Loops directory you copied to the other disk, control-click on the directory in the new location, then drag this alias over to /Library/Audio and make sure it is called Apple Loops.

 

Test, if it works fine and nothing is broken, delete the Apple Loops directory with the other name in /Library/Audio. If it's broken, delete the alias and rename the original directory to Apple Loops and nothing bad should have happened.

 

If you are installing Jam packs you could directly tell where they are loaded so this first step is only necessary in case you have already installed the apple loops.

 

Also, if you have this alias in place, any future Apple loops installations will go to the new location via the alias.

Something like that.

Thanks man. Only I have a hard time understanding the process. What's Alias?

Select any directory you want. Control Click Make Alias, move the generated alias directory file to another location, open the alias directory, be enlightened.

doing the alias trick doesn't really work for apple loops

 

what does is deleting the apple loops indexes, opening logic or garageband's loop browser, using finder to navigate to the new location of the apple loops, then dragging them onto the loop browser. This re-creates the apple loop indexes and point to the new location.

What are indexes?

I think I got it.

They are no longer on the main drive.

But I can see them in Home/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops/Apple Loops(with a small arrow in the bottom left corner of the folder)/Apple.....

Is it correct?

Having just installed the jam packs myself, they can only be installed on the startup drive. I was surprised since the other audio content can be placed anywhere.

 

Thanks for your tip, now I can try to move them to my external drive with the other sound files.
