Currently Being ModeratedAug 12, 2009 10:28 AM (in response to synesthesian)I just up-dated from Logic Express 8 to Logic Studio (Logic Pro9)
I cannot open any Yamaha piano in the Piano list of instruments. A message pops up saying EXS II can not find the file.
Opening EXS II, these pianos are not in the instrument list.
These instruments are in Logic Express 8. Have they been eliminated from the Logic Pro 9 Library?
Why do they still figure in the instrument list?imac 24 inch, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2009 7:50 PM (in response to roxen)I have exactly the same problem. Just updated to Logic 9 and lots of factory instruments in EXS are missing samples now - really random. I had 12 and no only 9 folders. the Pianos are one of the files missing. Could any one shed some light on why this has happened and how to restore the missing files?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 3, 2009 7:00 PM (in response to synesthesian)Same thing happened to me. Lost lots of EXS instruments after doing clean Snow Leopard install and reinstalling Logic 9 & iLife '09. Old songs were missing, exs instruments, UltraBeat kits, etc. Open each song and complied a list of missing files. Then used Pacifist to install the missing sounds. Funny, seems Snow Leopard does rely on /library/receipts to track installed packages any more, so I couldn't simply re-run the content installers. After 3 days, I'm back in business though. Hope Pacifist might help you guys. DDiMac Core 2 Duo 2GHz/ MacBook Air 1.6GHz, Mac OS X (10.6), 4GB RAM/ 2GB RAM Apogee Duet
Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2009 9:43 AM (in response to Darrell Diaz)This problem began,i think in Logic 8.....when you install LP8 normally the EXS instruments and Legacy EXS there were always some missing that I was used to using..I found them eventually,they were now part of the the Garageband instrument Library.
I went back and searched all the install DVDs until I found them showing up..some EXS instruments would be missing the actual samples which were now part of the Garageband instrument library,Attitude Bass being one I remember off hand.
I just copied all the Instruments and samples I needed and got rid of the rest which amounts to a lot of space being freed up.
Now I just keep a backup of all my EXS files on external drive so I dont need to install them every upgrade as in Logic 9 (which I checked just in case there were any new files etc!)..which also sorts out the duplicate files headache.
Hope this helps.....MBP, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2009 5:40 PM (in response to miccav)yeah, i just solved the problem. On another Mac which still has Logic 8 installed on I searched for the missing files on the Mac HD Library folder (when trying to load them from logic 9 it tells you the name of file thats missing). They are held within a garageband folder which has loads of EXS instruments in it. I copied that to an external HD (12gb) and pluged it into my Logic 9 Mac. When loading the instrumets that previously had missing files, they now all worked! didnt even need to move the files back to the original HD.
It looks like the Logic 9 installation must remove some of the garageband files.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2009 5:55 PM (in response to naivemachine)Good lord, why is Logic ( a pro app ) even interacting with anything to do with garage band ( a paint by numbers joke app ) I swear to god Apple are trying to merge these apps together with a bias towards garage band.
Note to Apple: please please stop with the garage band, Apple loops, semi professional crap in Logic.
If I wanted to paint by numbers, I'd visit an art shop.
I really am starting to hate Apple, and I just don't want to. I've been using their hardware since 1991, but enough Already.
