Logic 9 100 GB Apple Loops - Problems during importing into loop browser

Discussion in 'Logic 9' started by b-pole, Aug 6, 2010.

    Dear fellows,

    I completed my library and translated most of my samples into Apple Loops.

    It is about 100GB altogether.

    Now I dragged the folders into the loop browser, but I was not able to finish the importing process.
    I was running my iMac the whole night about 6 hours but no finished process. Now I am at work and the process is running again at the moment, but I think it will not be ready when I am at home later this day again.

    Is there a limit of Apple Loops I can import into Logic?
    Is my library too big for this?
    Is it normal that it takes so long?
    Is there any alternative to import such a big library?

    Please help because I do not want to hold my iMac on standby the whole weekend for updating my Apple Loops index file.

    Greetings from Germany

    Off the record - I've always found that the apple loops browser "chokes" when you try and add too many new loops at the same time to be indexed. If I were you you, I would trash all the apple loop indexes and start over. And just drag a handful of folders at a time over the browser for indexing. With 100 GB of loops, it will take a while; and you'll have to be there to interact with the process regularly. But really, in my experience, it's the safest way.

    Thanks for fast reply.:)
    Where can I find the Apple Loops Indixes in order to delete?

    I agree! I have a very large apple loop library and I simply take the time to drag the folders one at a time onto the browser.

    It worked for me to do it manually folder by folder.

    Thanks for the tips.

    But one question left.

    Where are the Apple Loops Indexes on my harddisc?

    Not in front of Logic at the moment, but from memory:
    Library ---> Audio ---> Apple Loops

    And check the same location in the user folder.
