I downloaded "additional content" and got excited that I saw so many more jampacks, etc. to add to my collection.  Unfortunately, I was shocked to discover that a great number of my original instruments were no longer available.  ( I'm in the middle of a project and I really need those old instruments! )

     Is this process reversable?

    Hello there crumblymusic,


    It sounds like the loop index needs to be re indexed. Check out this article, Logic Pro and Express: Rebuilding the Loop Index found here http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3443


    On Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard

    1. Quit Logic if it is open.
    2. In the Finder, choose Go > Go to Folder.
    3. Type /Library/Audio/ in the "Go to the folder" field.
    4. Press the Go button.
    5. Place the Apple Loops Index folder in the Trash.  Note: GarageBand 1 and Jampacks 1-3 used a different location. See Where loops get installed for more information.
    6. Open Logic.
    7. Drag the Apple Loops folder into the Loop Browser in Logic. Enter your administrator password if prompted.

      Note: If you have GarageBand 1 or have installed GarageBand Jam Packs, repeat the last step for the GarageBand Jam Pack folders (See Where loops get installed for more information).


    All the best,
