Where do I install Massive preset collections?

According to the latest manual, user content should be stored at the following location on a Mac-

  • User­ /Documents>/Native Instruments/Massive/Sounds

Can I assume this is the best location to install 3rd party preset collections (folders)? Also, can I move the presets stored in "Users/Shared" to this location to simplify my preset browsing? Thanks in advance!

    Yes indeed you can also install 3rd party presets there.

    Yes, you can also move the presets stored in "Users/Shared" to this location.

    Or, you can also go to Massive options and Add any path you like! You don't have to put them all on the same place, neither to the default location. Default locations are suggested, but they are not mandatory.

    However, what ever you do, after that, you have to open Massive in stand alone mode, go to options and click "Rebuild database"!

    If you use Komplete Kontrol also add that path to the User Libraries tab (same for FM8/Absynth) and their libraries will show in the user section in Komplete Kontrol too.
