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

  1. Launch SampleTank 4
  2. Navigate to the Sound Content page by clicking the gear icon in the lower right hand corner.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
