    Your_HD_name / Library / Application Support / Native Instruments / Massive / Sounds 

    The other ones are 2 folders up

    Your_HD_name / Library / Application Support / Native Instruments


    For sample lib content and whatnot, it's wherever you choose to install in Native Access.

    Thank You. MacOS folders are so disorganized for audio plugin presets,

    certain presets are in user library, others are in main library, and others in documents and so on..

    The distinction of User VS Lib folders is OK IMO, it avoids the mess of having everything together, useful when you get a new computer and only need to transfer your custom presets.

    There shouldn't be any presets in the root of the Documents folder, if there are it's because you saved them there (it's the first folder Massive offers when you use "Save-As").

    Massive is not smart when performing Save's, so you have to tell it where you want stuff to be, ideally, user presets should go in the User Lib, after you save there once it should remember (afaik)
