Re­lo­cate your Sound Li­brary

iCreate - - LOGIC PRO X -

1 Logic dic­tates

First, make sure you have the lat­est ver­sion of Logic Pro in­stalled (ver­sion 10.4.2). You can check this by se­lect­ing ‘About Logic Pro X’ from the Logic Pro X menu.

2 Drive safely

Now it’s time to con­nect an ex­ter­nal drive via USB to your Mac. Check the for­mat – it will need to be for­mat­ted as APFS or MACOS Ex­tended (Jour­naled).

3 Re­lo­ca­tion, re­lo­ca­tion

In Logic Pro, choose Logic Pro X>sound Li­brary>re­lo­cate Sound Li­brary. The app will then cal­cu­late the amount of disk space re­quired for the trans­fer.

4 Trans­fer win­dow

In the win­dow that ap­pears, select the drive where you want to store the Logic Pro Sound Li­brary. This will be the one you con­nected in Step 2.

5 Push the but­ton

Click the ‘Re­lo­cate’ but­ton to be­gin the trans­fer. You may need to en­ter your ad­min pass­word to con­tinue at this point. So fill in the pass­word field to con­tinue.

6 Ket­tle on!

To trans­fer a fully in­stalled li­brary the process should take no more than 80-90 min­utes. This no­ti­fi­ca­tion will ap­pear once the trans­fer is com­pleted – click ‘OK’ to con­tinue.

7 Drive off

If the drive is dis­con­nected you can use Logic with­out the Sound Li­brary con­tent.

Just click ‘Ig­nore’ and any tracks that con­tain miss­ing files will be re­placed with ba­sic tones.

8 Re­verse pro­ce­dure

To move the con­tent back to your Mac, just re­con­nect the drive con­tain­ing the li­brary con­tent and re­s­e­lect Logic Pro X>sound Li­brary>re­lo­cate Sound Li­brary.

9 Move back

In the di­a­logue win­dow this time round, select Macin­tosh HD as the des­ti­na­tion vol­ume, then click ‘Re­lo­cate’ once again. It’s a very sim­ple process.
