Logic 8 moving samples to an external drive.

Angry Logic 8 moving samples to an external drive.

Hi Folks.

I am running still logic 8 under OSX 10.6.08 just because its stable.
The space on my OS HD was getting very small and I do have tons of free space on external drives.

I did copy all the samples, of the sampler instruments, to an external HD and aliased them, they now redirect to the original folders on the external HD.

But nope Ultrabeat and EXS does not eats this.

So my second choice was simlinks.
But once again they do not find the samples.... they ask for every set separate to direct them by hand to the correct location.

I am frustrated at the moment because this should be logical and easy to do.
But it is not!!!

Any help is welcome.

From my understanding Logic scans EXS instruments, on boot up.

.exs must remain in the logic application support folder.

Samples can reside on any hard drive in your system, no alias needed.

Or you can open each instrument in the editor, point to samples and save the instrument.

How can I point to samples in the editor?
Do you mean EXS24 editor?
