When I go to change my Mainstage 2.2 recording directory, it defaults back to Home/Music/Mainstage/ even though I choose a different location.

Any thoughts on how to keep this from happening?

    Hi Thorste,


    I've been having the same problem.  This is a bit of a dirty fix, but it works


    Right click on the and show package contents,


    Navigate to Contents/Resources


    Open BasePreferences.plist in a plain text editor (I'm using TextWrangler)


    Search for <string>~/Music/MainStage</string>


    This witll give you 4 results for the different defualt locations for the various files type.


    Change the last one for the audio file locations.  For example I changed mine to:





    Hope that helped :-)
