Sampletank 3 not importing all libraries

Postby AdInfinitum » Fri Jan 05, 2018 6:57 pm

I upgraded my MBP and previously had all Sampletank Libraries on an external drive, including SampleMoog, Tron, Sonic Synth and many other libraries.

I'm having difficulty getting Sampletank 3 to import all my libraries from the external HD. I have all libraries under ik multimedia/sampletank, but when i list that string as the disk location, Sampletank only recognizes some but not all.

Does anyone know what folder under Sampletank 3 the libraries should reside so they are all recognized by Sampletank?

Legacy libraries must be imported using the "Import Legacy Library" function in SampleTank 3. They will not be recognized by simply placing them in the filesystem.

You can find more details of how to do this in the SampleTank 3 User Manual, Section 3.3.1, "Instruments Menu" --> "Import Legacy Instruments"

If you do not know where to find the manuals for IK products, please consult the following FAQ: http://www.ikmultimedia.com/faq/2497

Thank you.

Thanks Peter. Good to know that you aren't always haunting the halls of KVR.

Wait - when it imports, will it import to the External or the Home Drive? When I imported, it sent the imported files to my Home Drive/Library/IK folder.

It will import into the location where you have the main SampleTank 3 sounds. You can set that in the preferences/settings.
