Logic 8 ESX Help needed:Logic8 newbie

Discussion in 'Logic 8' started by peterlemer, Apr 7, 2009.

    Just installed Logic8 - haven't launched it yet.
    Ran a current Logic7 session and the ESX assignments were lost.
    I know this has been discussed so best to point me to previous threads.

    But... if anyone has the time:

    I'm using an ESX instrument called GTR_Power Chrd1S which thankfully was saved in the project. But it isn't in the new library. I have the original library backed up so it it simply a question of dragging the missing samples across?

    ( I don;t want to mess up any directories)

    If so, is there an existing list of missing samples, so saving me the hassle of comparing multiple folder lists?

    Further:
    In my previous setup, I had a LOT of 3rd party samples in my ESX list which no longer appear in ESX. I tried putting aliases in the /FactorySamples folder but this didn't work. What can I do?

    and I don't have time to RTFM before the next session!

    The actual samples shouldn't be an issue, EXS should find them wherever they are (but EXSmanager fro Redmatica is a big useful tool in this respect).

    It's the EXS instruments (.exs files) that may be trickier to locate.

    Where your 3rd party exs instruments in the system library or your user library.? This could be the problem as the system library stuff would be overwritten and although it's quite possible to put 3rd party instruments to there, always to bung them in your user library so that new installations of Logic don't interfere with them.

    Seems to me like you just need to put the 3rd party stuff into your user library:

    (User)/Library/Application Support/Logic/Sampler Instruments.

    I found that it screwed with my Kontakt samples' locations, probably because I didn't set it up right.

    They are all currently on a dedicated sample internal RAID drive. I think that's where the previous EXS found them, but I can't be sure how I set that up.

    yep! just an alias of the source folder works fine - many thanks
