Download All Available Sounds – Logic X – Logic Pro Help
Board index Music Software Logic Pro. Logic keeps asking to download the audio content, but the audio content is already downloaded on a separate drive in the same machine. Also when I select Sound Library Manager, it clearly can’t “see” the sounds that are already on the other disk. What can I do about this except re-download the entire thing? See attached. Thanks Chris. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. David Nahmani Site Admin.
Not the worst thing that could happen, but something they could easily fix. After downloading the “Essential Sounds” or some other small library, relocate it to the external HD. This creates all necessary symbolic links in macOS system folders, pointing to the library on external.
After that delete the newly relocated Library folder and rename the existing fully downloaded folder back to “Library” or whatever it’s normally called. Can’t guarantee it will work, though, since Logic apparently registers the sound library components as installed through installation receipts. You might have to combine these two methods. Please, report back on what worked and what didn’t.
That should help everyone understand the whole process better. Note: I personally find the Sound Library Manager a total mess. In my experience, it’s never worked properly, and the way it treats users’ time is outrageous. For example, it cannot detect previously installed library content say, after it had been moved to an external drive and after macOS has been freshly reinstalled, like in the OP’s case , although Logic itself can load samples and presets just fine.
And to add insult to injury, the installation status is defined through installation receipts which are stored in a separate system folder. It’s as if Logic and Sound Library Manager are two totally different apps developed by separate dev teams.
Could SLM’s development have been outsourced? I don’t know, but whoever came up with SLM in its present shape and form should probably look for another career. Thank you for this link. I have these sounds installed on my studio machine and I should be able to get the receipts file from there.
I’ll try it and report back. As for the external drive being greyed out, have you renamed the folder on external to something other than “Library”? Logic’s SLM obviously still detects that library files already exist on the drive. From my experience, once you rename that folder, the disk should become available for relocation. You might have to quit Logic, rename the folder, eject the disk and plug it in again, wait for it to mount, then launch Logic again.
Then I deleted the contents of the newly created “Library” folder and replaced it with the stuff that was in the renamed file.
The Sound Library Manager still can’t see the samples on the other drive, but I played around with it for a bit and opened Alchemy. Alchemy showed me a progress bar see attached which probably lasted less than a minute, then all the sounds were available in the program. Same with Drummer. So clearly it found them on the drive and didn’t re-download all those massive files. So I think it will grab what it needs when it needs it but at this point, you’d think it would update the Sound Library Manager, such that once it “knows” the sounds are there, it checks it off in SLM as already downloaded.
I have the full library but I imagine this would be hell for someone who had meticulously downloaded only stuff they needed because of disk space or whatever.
I closed the file and re-opened it, just to see if it would re-open Alchemy again immediately or whether it would have to do that refresh. It didn’t. Those sounds were right there in the plugin and still not checked off in the SLM. I guess tomorrow I’ll try the receipt trick to see if that shows everything downloaded. Chris JotaGi wrote: You could try library installation receipt transplant technique.
The receipt “transplant” should do the trick, then. The SLM showed “Installed” next to most of the sounds in the library but on the left there were no indicators in the check boxes that it could see the files. I had to come into my studio and open Logic here to realize that there are no checks in the boxes by default. Interesting side note – on all but one of my computers I’m running macos in a hackintosh PC hardware and somehow pasting all the Receipts from my studio machine Apple keyboard, PC hardware screwed up the keyboard settings on my laptop Windows keyboard pretending to be an Apple keyboard.
I’ll have to figure out how to undo that. Thanks all for your help. What a great resource. JotaGi Posts: 61 Joined: Mon Dec 17, pm Re: Reinstalling Logic X with Existing Sound LIbrary Tue Jan 08, pm Chris, you have a mild case of “receipt transplant” rejection with that keyboard glitch, it seems lol By any chance, when you were copying the receipts, did you copy the whole folder from your studio computer, or did you make sure these were only sound library-related receipts?
By the way, normally Sound Library Manager does not automatically tick the libraries tagged as “Installed”. Very glad this method works and on a Hackintosh, to boot. This opens up a whole range of opportunities in Logic Sound Library receipt transplantology, I’d say.
For this I join here to tell you as it’s a bummer not finding it. I putted a 3th drive on it and moved the basic new library to there with logic as the 3th don’t show grey but white.
So according Logic thats where the sounds are. Then I deleted the logic file of disk 3 the basic one and copied the big library to there from disk 2. After that I deleted the big library from disk 2. So the big one is now on the 3th where according Logic your sounds are.
After that you can open Logic and from there switch all back to disk 2 as it don’t show this grey anymore. Best regards Edu. What you can do though is when you first download the Logic samples — and before you install them — is find the pkg files on your hard drive and back those up. Then use a shell script to batch install all the pkg files. This is perhaps a cleaner way to go about it rather then disabling csrutil and implanting old receipts since it will install everything fresh again.
It’s essentially what the Sound Library Manager does, just without the headache of downloading 60GB from a slow server. How to find and backup the pkg files : using Sound Library Manager, select the samples you want to download and start downloading them. After they’ve downloaded, macOS will prompt you to enter your password, but don’t.
Leave that dialogue box open and instead go into Finder and we’ll find the pkg files that were just downloaded. You’ll have to look through these subfolders since they are arbitrarily named until you find the folder path: com. Then within here you will see the pkg files. There are other data files in here named. Sort this finder window by kind to group all the pkg files together and then drag and drop them to your backup disk. Full disclosure: I haven’t gotten to this step of using a script to batch install yet, but it should work in theory.
I do intend to give it a shot though and I’ll report back here with an update. Even if you choose to install them all manually, in the face of the loss of time with downloading the entire library again, you will come out ahead in saving time. Also, if like amitygardens mentioned, you only use a handful of your favorite Logic samples, installing them manually may be the way to go.
Hopefully this turns the “hell” of it all into a more “heavenly” experience. Also this method of backing up the pkg files before install works with other companies. Arturia’s Software Center app for example downloads all the pkg files then prompts you for your password to install. Again, you can go into Finder and locate the pkg files and back them up before install.
The largest bottleneck in refreshing your rig is the downloading process, so having the backup pkg files will save lots of time.
Hope that’s helpful! I’ll report back after I find a shell script that works. Logic Pro X My cat loves cheese. During install it will ask you to install a font for some reason? After install, open up Terminal and type: Code: Select all. Just installed the entire sample library with the installpkg script and it took about 60 minutes, hands-free.
Take that, 2 day download. Allow it to by clicking “Resume”, etc and then cancel it. The prompt will disappear the next time you start Logic.
Code: Select all. Glad it’s helping and thanks for adding your solution to the recipe! Much better than the long downloads, yeah? That was always a huge bottle neck in my OS-refreshes, so I’m pumped for this solution as well.
Happy music making! My guess is that it wouldn’t be, but who knows? If you’ve downloaded the pkg files, you should be able to search in Finder by file type for “pkg” to discover their location. Also, as tootone mentioned, they might be located on an external device if you’ve configured it that way.
