I am new to MAGIX products and this may be the cause of the issues that I am having. I come from Ableton and Sonar but I wanted to know a bit more about ACID loops.
I purchased, on a deal, Samplitude X4 Suite because this came with a large library for the Independence Sampler.
I alo wanted some work with ACID loops, so I downloaded rthe free version - ACID Xpress. This looked quite good although, as expected for a freebie, quite limiting. Every time I wanted to do something useful I realized that the feature was in the paid version. So I ended up buying ACID Pro. Both of these products also came with a reasonable sized library of loops.
The problem here is that I had no idea of where the sounds were stored because I wanted to to move the Independence library out of my C: drive. The forum did help with this but there is no documentation that refers to this (at least I couldn't find it). I think it is always good when it is clear where everything is stored. Sample projects are also in this location but these are not mentioned either and the software does not point to these in preferences.
This software also came with a substantial range of sounds. It was a long download and I had no option of where the files would be stored with no clue on the installer. When the download completed the sounds were installed but there was no information of where these might be and I still haven't found them. There is no documentation for this at all.
I was excited that the documentation referred to a Media Manager with features that I thought was fantastic for working with my loops but when I selected this feature in View I was informed that 'Media Manager is not installed'. When I tracked this down on the Forum I am told that ACID Pro 9 does not support Media Manager. What a naff way to deliver a product, with features (important features) that no longer exist. I wish I could flog my software that way!
Now, I am new to these products and it is highly likely that the fault is mine for not properly RTFMing the manual and I apologise to MAGIX if that is the case.
I would be extremely grateful if anyone could shed some light on the location of files please
