I can confirm that the nebula libraries works on a external HDD on osx
Nebula tip of the month has not covered a very good explanation on this for osx
So i had to google around to understand the right paths to truly understand them for osx
I did find a xml file when i googled and to me it was much easier understanding what to do just by looking on that xml file
I'll post a screenshot hopefully tonight if i can make it, if not im posting it tomorrow so stay tuned cause it does work
Edit : I think I'm gonna make a thread on Gearlsutz on this so we can have this information in one place and make it easy for new users to understand in a not too tecnical way
I'll post the link in here when i have created the thread
Greetings jfjer, could you please give me step by step instructions to change directory path to my 3rd party libraries on my SSD. A lot of conjecture about how to do this on Mac. There seems to be steps in between that are not fully explained in detail about how to achieve this. Even Acustica's own manuals are of no help. In addition, I have a question about installing Alex B.'s and others libraries, the installer doesn't seem to work. When I click on it none of the libraries show up like they do when installing Acustica's own libraries(they installed fine and show up in menu "Init") presets. What am I doing wrong? All of my Acqua's and Nebula Server Ultimate are registered and authorized. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. _________________________________________________________ Logic Pro X, Neb. Ultimate, Emerald, Ivory, Navy, Titanium.
As cpwade alluded to with his post at the top of this page, if you don't want to get into editing the xml file and just want to move the library to save space on your start up disk and/or put it on an SSD, the easiest method is simply to move your Vectors folder to the disk of your choice, create a symbolic link to it and put that link in the Nebula3 folder (after deleting the original Vectors folder) You could move the Programs folder too, but it really doesn't use that much space, so I didn't bother.
You don't have to use the Terminal to create the link either. Here's a page where a kind chap has written an Automator workflow that installs a 'Create symbolic link' service that you can access by right clicking on the folder you want to link to:
He mentions that you have to open it in Automator and save it to the Services folder, but I found (on 10.10.5) that double clicking the unzipped workflow generates a dialog asking if you want to install it as a service. If you click 'Install' it simply moves the workflow to home folder/Library/Services.
Now right click on your newly moved Vectors folder and select 'Create symbolic link' You should see what looks like a Mac Alias appear called 'Vectors link' Copy this back to your Nebula3 folder and rename it to just 'Vectors' If you click on it you should see the contents of your Vectors folder on the other disk and so will Nebula. You can delete the 'Vectors link' link left sitting next to your Vectors folder on the other disk.
Bear in mind if you move the Vectors folder again, you will have to recreate the link. It won't follow it like a Mac Alias will.
Incidentally, if you're a Logic Pro X user and you'd like to move that ~15GB GarageBand folder in Application Support off your start up disc, this technique will work for that too.
