    For which product? Plug-ins usually have a standard location/folder and moving them may result in problems for future updates. Sound libraries, however can be moved and when done properly will allow for subsequent installations to follow suite.

    Hi,

    if you mean Superior SDX libraries, you can move the entire ‘SL-Xxxxx’ folder to a new location and then relink it.
    Please see the Manual:

    Why aren’t you recognizing the need for the manager’s ability to redirect an SDX or whatever you like to call your library file’s to a specific download path? If you are using an ssd system drive of minimum size you are not going to want to fill it with libraries. Also if you own an additional SSD drive, you will want to down load to it and not put it in one place and then move it. Especially on a MAC which does not simply cut and paste but needs to move and then delete source method. A manager app should manage that! No?

    Also your link is redirecting the the user page not the manual

    On a Mac the Product Manager download target is changed in preferences. When the installer is run for an EZX or SDX you can identify where the actual sound library gets installed.

    Not sure if this helps now so far down the line but on the Product Manager, go to Tools > Options – then in the middle of the window under download location it allows you to change the drive 🙂 Had the same issue!

    I’ve read to the end of this and I still have no idea how to move my sound library location on a Mac.

    Can someone make this clear?

    The link to the manual, supplied, redirects to here – which is no use at all – https://www.toontrack.com/user/

    I don’t understand why this is so difficult to find the answers to. Native Instruments makes it simple. It’s pretty common to put all of these instruments on an external hard drive.

    Hi guys,

    it seems you are asking about different things in this thread.

    It is one thing to change the Downloads location in the Product Manager, i.e. where all downloaded installation files end up.
    This is done by going to the ‘Toontrack Download Manager’ file menu, then Preferences (or hitting Cmd+,) on a Mac and ‘Tools > Options’ on Windows.

    When you install a new SDX library, you can set the location for it during the installation.
    If you wish to move it post installation, you can simply move it in the Finder/Explorer and either:

    • change the path to it in the Product Manager by clicking ‘Show Details’, then ‘Installation Info’, click the small drop-down menu and ‘Change Path…’
    • open SD3 and go to ‘Settings > Libraries/Paths…’ and change the product’s path.

    BR,
    John
