missing samples of all instruments

Post by stuart64 » Thu Dec 20, 2007 4:03 pm


All the instruments are missing their samples, I changed the library path to something else then changed it back to mydocuments/Ableton but they're still not there.

Anyopne know how to fix?

I had this recently and the below worked for me:

You have to go to File>Manage Files...> click on 'Manage Library' then point to the folder that has your samples in. It'll take a few minutes... then Live will then tell you if you have any problems and should find your samples. After this hit 'collect and save' so that Live can remember what it's just done.

I'm no expert by any means so proceed with caution!

my problem is similar, but i uninstalled the basics live pack and reinstalled it from the website. now it still says samples are missing, and my metronome click is no longer audible. what the hell?
