How to set up and change the Sound Content Directory for SampleTank 4
To get started using IK Multimedia sound content, you must first install SampleTank 4 using the IK Product Manager. While we recommend new users use the default path to avoid issues, you can follow the steps below to customize your SampleTank 4 sound content directory.
Setting Up a New Path
- Launch SampleTank 4
- Navigate to the Sound Content page by clicking the gear icon in the lower right hand corner.
- Click Add and you will be able to select your Sound Content Location on this page. You may set up a new folder on a separate internal or external drive.
- Next, be sure to remove the previous existing/default directories so that only your custom paths appear.
Once established, SampleTank 4 will scan the sound content database. If you had set up a new sound content directory, it will appear empty for now - until you install sound content.
This will also set up the sound content disk paths for the other Sound Content Apps.
Please note: The custom directory you set up here will be used by IK Product Manager to install your sound content.
