Re: Apple Loops and others.
Hi again Logic Pro,
Do you mean you double-click an Apple Loop in the OSX finder window and it opens in iTunes?
1. Open a New finder window and navigate to:
Find any .CAF apple loop within an enclosed folder and select it (by clicking it once).
2. Choose File > Get Info... (CMD-I)
3. In the Get Info window click on the Triangle next to 'Open With:" to show that area if it is hidden.
4. Select the Application you want Apple Loops to open in, e.g. Logic Pro or Quicktime, etc.
5. Now click on "Change All..." button to make sure all similar files (.CAF) files on your Mac will open in that application when you double-click them.
btw, did you know if you are looking at Apple Loops or audio files (or any documents) in the Mac Finder window, pressing Spacebar will 'quick look' the file. This will preview the file without opening it in any application.
Secondly, you can browse all your Apple Loops within Logic. Click on the Media button in the Toolbar and choose the 'Loops' tab.
As for moving the loops to another external drive... When you install Logic you have the option of where to install the additional content. If you already have Logic installed then...
1. Drag the whole Apple Loops folder to an external drive.
2. Delete the original Apple Loops folder on your system drive.
3. Open or create a new Logic project and drag the new Apple Loops folder on the external drive onto the Loops Browser.
This will reindex the loops.
Hope this helps
