FULLY SELF CONTAINED GEIST 2 PRESETS?

Postby BenjaminLucas » Sat May 02, 2020 1:16 pm

I'd posted something about having issues when audio used in my personal presets were moved to a different directory (Moderator Lawrence_fx was very helpful, thank you Lawrence) Now because of this weird issue with Filevault on my mac, I have to completely wipe my hard drive and fresh install High Sierra. What's the best way to make sure I back up Geist 2 presets so I don't have the file referencing problems? Is it just to manually move the files to the content folder in Geist 2 and re-reference to those files?

I'd like to make Geist 2 completely self-contained so I don't have to worry about this when I get my projects going again after the hard drive apocalypse. No way to automatically pull in all referenced audio files in a preset to the Geist content folder correct?

Thanks

I replace the full path in the preset files (which are XML format) with a relative path -> cut off everything from the start of the path that represents the base folder the presets are in. Quite easy to do in Notepad++ on Windows. Looking at the pre-packaged presets that came with Geist2, they have relative paths, too - sometimes starting with "../" if the samples are stored in a location above the preset folder.

Go to the Tools menu and select 'Save samples with presets'. You can then save the preset on your hard drive and it should copy the samples to a folder in the same place.
