Logic Studio / Pro :: EXS Cannot Find Sample Libraries


I made a load of different sample libraries using the exs24. Everything was fine and the exs could find them no problem until suddenly tonight I get a message when I try to load the sample saying something like it cant be found, continue or search again. Why does this suddenly happen? Its not the 1st time with previous samples. With previous ones I wasn't really happy with the samples I made so I didn't worry but these ones I am very happy with so I want the exs to find them. I haven't as yet used the samples in a project. They are saved on an external HD. The alias is found in users /library/ app. Support/ logic/sampler instruments where I have folders for groups of instruments e.g bass, guitar keys etc. I have refreshed menu. I have set preferences to search all volumes. Is there a way to point it in the right direction?

Logic Studio / Pro :: External Sample Storage Of EXS24 Sample Libraries
I'm hoping I can get a bit of advice on the topic of sample storage for my new macbookpro.

BACKGROUND

I have a new i7 dual 2.8ghz macbookpro with a 128gig SSD for the primary drive. This is a small drive but from my testing so far it's a powerful beast in conjunction with the 4gigs of ram and processors.

Additionally, my hope/plan is to use my 1TB external (FW800) Lacie drive as the holder of all sample libraries & projects for both my Mac Pro and my new MacBookPro laptop. This way I can share it across both my Mac Pro (main studio computer) and my MacBookPro, and if/when needed take the 1TB external on the road with the MacBookPro.

Logic Studio / Pro :: EXS Factory Sample Files Not Matching With Instruments
I noticed this issue last night whilst looking for a sample: If I navigate to the EXS factory samples in finder, there are samples ranging from 01 to 10 as shown above. However, if I search for a sampler instrument in the EXS there are sampler instruments that range from 01 to 12. In finder, the sampler instruments folder is the same as it is within the EXS, ranging from 01 to 12. What I'm trying to find out is, why aren't the factory sample files matching with the factory sample instruments? Maybe it will make some more sense if I tell you what I was trying to do:

I was looking for a harmonica (harp) sample, so used the browser in Logic to find one, which brought up a load of factory samples but on my system there doesn't seem to be an EXS instrument for these samples, which I find strange. The blues harp samples are located in the following location:
EXS Factory Samples/10 Legacy Instruments/05 Horns & Woodwinds/BluesHarp
If I try searching for this instrument in the EXS I cannot find it.

Logic Studio / MainStage :: Compatible Sample Libraries - Adding More Sounds
I've got Mainstage loaded and that makes me very happy. I'm still waiting for my UltraLite, but that's another post. However, I have scrolled through the available sounds and now I would like to add more sounds from different libraries. I know MS uses AU so, is there a way I can use sounds from other libraries and load them directly into MS, or do I need to use a stand alone sampler triggered from MS?

Logic Studio / Pro :: Logic 9 Corrupts EXS Insts That Use VSL Performance Tool?
Just noticed this: any EXS instruments from VSL's Horizon Series that use their "Performance Tool" are corrupted in Logic 9.

For example, I have the Epic Horns series. When you call up one of the performance legato patches and try to play legato lines, the result is completely garbled. In looking at the EXS editor's VSL tab, I discovered these patches default to "Thru" where they should be set to their stored setting (Horizon Legato in this case). These same patches come up perfectly in Logic 8.0.2 and earlier.

How this got jacked up in Logic 9's programming phase, I'll never know - but it has just rendered one of my crucial libraries useless. It's not like any work was done on the EXS24 for Logic 9 - how did this happen?!?

Between this and the vastly increased memory needs of Logic 9, I'm stuck in 8.0.2 - and praying they get this stuff fixed ASAP!

Why doesn't Logic Pro (9) search for files the way previous versions have?Okay, I renamed my samples HD, that wasn't the best idea, but L8 and L7 will search and find my samples on that same drive. The samples are STILL there. Logic 9 gives up and there's no option to locate manually.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Editing Samples From EXS Patch
I am having a few probs editing sample start and end points and sample loop points with samples from an exs patch. I load in some samples mostly chopped from transients using flex mode and converted to a sampler track. I then double click on the sample name or the drop down box and choose open in sample editor. When I drag the region start point or end point up or down it makes no bearing on the audio file. The only way I can do it is by manually dragging the start/end sample number from the columns in the edit window of EXS? Also, same goes for sample loops. I choose my loop, click selection to sample loop and it doesn't loop.

One more thing while I am here. Say I want to copy some samples on c1 and d1 to c2 and d2 and pitch them up or down an octave, I copy the samples by selecting them and holding down alt from the column window into the key map window. And they appear on top of the original samples. when I drag them up the octave and hit the midi keys nothing plays and I don't see the on screen keys being pressed. Almost as if there is no sample assigned.

Logic Studio / Pro :: EXS Samples Cut Off Randomly
For some reason, there are certain samples that get cutoff in EXS... mainly the longer ones like cymbals, etc. These patches all worked fine in Logic 8, and now since my upgrade to 9, are behaving strangely. I experimented with the ASDR settings and those don't fix it. I'd like to post a pic of the EXS window, but haven't figured out how. Is there an option for that?

Logic Studio / Pro :: Can't Hear Any Sound From EXS 24
What's going on users? I have Studio logic 9.02 (about to install the 9.13 update and hopefully it fixes my problem) and I now have an issue with EXS 24, no sound comes out from the sampler. On my transport bar when I press a key on my midi controller, it reflects the note in the transport bar, ie F2, G#2, etc, so I know that the interface is working with Logic, plus I've used it with other things within the DAW. Its odd, but if I turn my monitors up loud enough I can hear a faint sound, not the sample itself, but just a faint, extremely short, high pitched sound. If anything I could use the sound to send morse code or something. (hopefully that gives you an idea on how it sounds.) I dont see much topics on the forum about this sort of issue, so I figured I bring it up and see if anyone has any suggestions.

Logic Studio / Pro :: EXS - Modulating Samples With Pitch Wheel?
I'm making an EXS instrument with my own recorded samples. I'm trying to play one set of samples between C2 and C3, and another slightly different set of samples between the same keys. How do I make it so that I can use the pitch wheel on my keyboard to alternate between the two? I can't see the parameters within the EXS sample editor. Or, if I can I certainly can't figure out how to use it!

Logic Studio / Pro :: Loading Audio Files For Unknown EXS
When I boot up Logic 8 I have to bypass 2 hurdles before it starts up.. The first one is:"Loading audio files for unknown.exs" I see when I open up EXS24 that "unknown" patch is called up. It's just a sample I never named. Is there any way to bypass the loading of any patches in EXS24 upon startup? I went through the preferences to no avail. The next one is "Audio file.aifnot found" it asks me to skip or look manually. Since I don't know what it is I skip. Then next time I startup Logic it prompts me with that message every time. I just want it to startup without any messages or prompts and load the previous song.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Crashes Opeing EXS-Factory-Instruments
My Logic 9.1.1 recently started to crash when I try to open certain instruments in the library. Most of the EXS-Instruments work but for example 10 Orchestral/08 Pipe Organ/Baroque Organ makes Logic crash or Orchestral/09 Choir/Chamber Male Swells. This are only examples, I would say about 15 to 20 percent of all factory instruments from all categories lead to the same result. It's the same thing on my recent iMac and my MacBook Pro (all updated properly and with recently fixed permissions).

Logic Studio / Pro :: Relinking EXS Sampler Instruments And Samples
I have an external drive that I'd like to be able to move to several computers and use as my samples drive. To keep things consistent, I thought it best to keep BOTH EXS Sampler Instruments & Samples on this drive. Then I can just create aliases of the EXS Sampler Instruments and drop them in the main logic support folder. That way I can easily just move the drive to either computer for the greatest flexibility. I'd like to relink many EXS Sampler Instruments to their samples. I used to use the ExsManager Pro.app but that stopped working a while back. Is there another way to have logic do all the re-linking instead?

Logic Studio / Pro :: Slow Loading On EXS Orchestral Instruments
It seems to be random, but most of the voice (choir) instruments take 3-5 minutes to load and some of the organ instruments are doing the same thing. The rest load lickety split. I've done a fresh install of osx, logic, tried to install jam packs again, repaired permissions twice, removed .pref files twice. They all load just fine on my 2007 MBP and 2009 Mac Pro, but my brand, spanking new IMac I7 has problems.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Missing Content - Samples Or Loops - EXS Instruments Gone?
There have been a lot of posts lately with people who are finding that they have missing content in their Logic Studio. Most of this content is in the form of missing EXS instruments and Channel Strip Settings. This is content that originally came with Garageband but is used by Logic a lot. People have speculated that it's a glitch in the Logic Installer that deletes some of this content. Here is a post I wrote up to restore your missing content. It was written specifically to find that missing Garageband content off the Garageband Installer that is contained on your System Restore Disks, but it will work for anything that you can't find, or things like Channel Strip Settings or Plug-In Settings you want from Logic 7 that aren't in Logic 8. Read the instructions carefully and you'll figure out how to do this with any missing content.


If you are looking at your Loop Browser specifically, and it is not showing Loops that you know you have installed on your system, do a search for the post called: Apple Loops Missing? File Not Found? Need to Reindex? Read On But if the content is actually missing from your Hard Drive, read on. You need 2 utilities to do this. First, download Tinkertool here: [URL:....] If you have a utility that will allow you to see hidden files, you can use that. Then download Pacifist from here: [URL:...] Pacifist isn't free, but I think you can use the trial version for a certain period of time. Open Tinkertool, select Finder, and check 'Show Hidden and System Files,' then click 'Relaunch Finder' This will allow you to find the hidden installer package on the System Disks...........

In Kontakt you can load dozens of sample sets into one instance but I can't find any info in any manuals telling me how to change between them other than by soloing the one I want to hear or assigining each one to a different midi channel (which would defeat the purpose of having them in one instance.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Sample Editor - Cannot Access This Option
I work in a school and i have 23 new I Macs, 1 Older G5 and 4 macbook. When i record audio in to logic and then open up the sample editor i cant access the functions, the only one i can see is 'Change Gain' and i cant always see that, this happens nearly all the time on my Imacs and G5 but never on my Macbooks, whey its doing this because its hardly ever does it when i record as a stereo track, but always does it when i record as a mono track?

I also have the problem that it says 'File or Volume is locked' when trying to manipulate the audio file, now ive checked all the permissions and there how they should be and i know that im recording to an AIFF format so im really confused about why its happening.

Logic Studio / Pro :: 9.0 - 9.1 Sample Editor Crash/incompatibility?
Just wanted to say that I've had some (not all) version 9.0 Logic song files crash on me when I open them in Logic 9.1 on my 8-core, and then click on an audio file to to open the sample editor and perform a task. All else seems to work, but that action will consistently crash about 3 in 10 Logic songs for me; and not every audio region in those songs will cause it. I'm working on 42 song files, so it's a bit of a pain.

I haven't found a reason for the crashes, although I've scanned the crash logs. My work-around is to launch them in 9.0.2 by dragging them onto the Logic Pro 9.0.2 app icon, then do what I want. I'm glad that Logic doesn't replace the previous versions of the applications when it updates.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Trying To Fit Sample On Recorded Beat?
I never usually sample, I mainly just record audio. E.g. say you made a beat at 90 bpm you like your trying to fit a sample over it (from a record say) and you don't know its tempo...but its alot slower maybe 70 bpm. If you cut the samples from the record to start on beat (or at peak of wave) and then play them through your keyboard/pads in time with the original beat you made at 90bpm. Will it work? Do you need to stretch the sample from the record to match your beat that you made in the first place, before you slice it and assign it to pads in exs24?

Logic Studio / Pro :: Converting Sample Rate Enmas
I have built a rather long and elaborate document in the style of Old-Time Radio.It consists of narration at 48 sample rate,and 200 sound effects from Apple's content of which about 95% are at 48 but some, especial the music and at 44.1.Is there any way to, and what is the easiest way to convert almost 200 regions (or their underlying audio files) to ALL 44.1?

(BTW, in the document-preferences, it is set to 48, (it must have defaulted that way when I first started, sorry I didn't change it from the start.) If I have to convert these almost 200 files individually, I won't do it, but ideally I wish I could convert these to 44.1.Or should I just leave it at the superior 48 until export time?

This may be an application-wide problem not specific to Ultrabeat, but this is where I'm running into it the most.

if I try to load a sample in Ultrabeat (e.g. to replace one of the drum sounds in a Drag & Drop kit), I lose all sound in Logic right after coming out of the dialog box. Doesn't even seem to matter if I actually replace the sound or not. I can hit "cancel" and I still lose sound.
