Hide unauthorized instruments

Post by ohrobot » Sun Feb 14, 2010 10:35 am

I am annoyed by clicking on instruments that appear to be not available for my live 8 version. Is there any way to hide them?

An instrument is basically nothing more than a directory in your Library.

So if you check up on the Presets subdir. in the Library directory you'll find the instruments which are basically empty directories. You should be able to remove those easily.

But before doing that make sure that no livesets are installed which might be useless now. So; go to preferences, check the Library tab and go over the list of installed livesets. If that list includes instruments you don't have (Operator, Analog, etc.) then simply uninstall those livesets. That might also fix it.
With kind regards,
