Relocating Libraries

Hopefully this is the correct forum to ask my question.

I just purchased a Mac Studio and I'm in the process of relocating my libraries. Several of my libraries don't give me the relocate option although many do. I only get an "Install" option. I don't want to download several big libraries like some of the Spitfire Albions, Berlin Brass and many others. They are located on a separate SSD.

Any guidance on this?

Thanks

    Hi Aaron,

    yes, it is!

    The "Repair -> Relocate" function is offered by Native Access for libraries that are already installed but got moved to a different location.

    For libraries not yet installed you can encounter the following two scenarios:

    1. If it is a library that is not available as download via Native Access you will see a "Locate" button
    2. If the library is available as download via Native Access it will be displayed with an "Install" button. In that case simply press the "..." button next to it and select "Locate". You will then be able to select the the library folder and Native Access will set it up and activate it automatically.

    I hope this helps!
