Library install

Postby etto » Mon Sep 30, 2013 4:56 pm

Hey guys,
a quick question I didn't find in the FAQ page. I'd like to be sure before installing all the GB: has BFD3 library to be installed in a fresh folder/disk (as I suppose) using its own path or should/could be installed on top of the old BFD2 as an upgrade?

Thank you

Hi etto,

Install the library to a fresh folder. Then add that, plus your BFD2 and any other expansion pack folders to the Content Locations panel (used to be called Data Paths in BFD2).

Do not install the library in a BFD2 folder. It is different from your BFD2 libraries and your content scan will convert your older libraries to BFD3 format (don't worry, your older libraries are still usable is previous versions of BFD).

Make a new folder.

Sorry, but it is late & has been a long year.
Can you please put that in easy-to-understand words for me?
What do I do with my expansion packs for BFD2? Do I copy them over to the new library, or what do I do?
Maybe even reinstall them?

Sorry for being dense.

No need for anything so complex:

- install BFD3 (install the data to it's own unique folder)
- launch and authorise
- add BFD2 and expansion pack data paths to the "Content Locations" panel in BFD3

BFD3 will do all the hard work, it just needs to know where to find all your existing samples. There is detailed instructions in the install guide here:

Even more so, you can blindly have BFD3 search your entire drive and it will do all the work for you.

As Rory said, "it ain't complicated :D "
