    Sorry for all these questions . I've been trying to find where my Sampler Instruments are . The Sampler Instruments Folder in the Library > Logic folder is empty . My Jam Packs are in the apple loops folder. Is this correct in Leopard ?

    Hi economous54, It's important to know that on Mac OSX you can system wide settings (normally directly on HD/Library) and user only settings (normally in Users/*username*/Library)... Here are a list of locations that might be useful: [b]Users sampler instruments can be either in:[/b] HD/Library/Application Support/Logic/ Sampler Instruments or Users/*your username*/Library/Application Support/Logic/ Sampler Instruments [b]your user created Channel strip settings, plug-in settings, project templates can all be found in the Logic folder of the Users App Support (as above)[/b] [b]Your user created Apple Loops can be found:[/b] Users/Library/Audio/Apple Loops [b]System installed Apple Loops (jam packs etc) can be found in the corresponding location for the whole system:[/b] HD/Library/Audio/Apple Loops [b]You can find your Logic preference file:[/b] Users/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.plist Cheers Rounik

    Hi Jam packs are essentially collections of apple loops. Often, like with the world jam pack etc, you'll find that there are channel strips settings and/or sampler instruments based on the apple loops that are included too. I hear what you're saying... But, having the ability to have different user accounts can be really useful. For example, although Applications are shared across systems, you could have a user account with all your channel strip settings, logic preferences etc in your user account. Another user can have completely different settings for Logic & different channel strip settings in their user account... HTH Rounik

    [quote:29399]Are there TNT Tutorials that covers this topic ?[/quote] Hi economou54, not any TNT tuts as such... but you can find some relevant info, e.g. where Logic, by default, store the sampler instruments and audio samples for EXS24 and how to organize and move them to other locations (plus much more!) in Logic 8 102: Exploring the EXS24 [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/logic8102[/url] I'd also recommend checking out the Mac OS X 101: Mastering your Mac [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/MacOs101[/url] if you feel that you could be more comfortable getting around OSX. And of course, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask here :) Best Rounik
