Moving the bundled sample sets

Postby Treppenwitz » Thu Oct 29, 2009 11:48 am

How do I move the bundled sample sets from the default install location on my C: drive? I need to free up some space and don't like to have streaming audio coming off the same drive as my OS.

In there Audio tab of the Preferences dialog box there’s a place to set the location of the Notion sound set.

1. Download the latest update.

2. Go to Preferences.

3. Go to the audio tab.

4. Samples Folder - you can choose the destination you want your samples to be

I just tried that: My samples now reside n a dedicated drive. Loading scores is _even faster_ now - it was already pretty fast before compared to other applications!
