Thanks, i've made a search and read this before posting. But this is not answering the question.
I know how to collect and save a project, and this is what i've always been doing, but i'd like a way to simply save a Drum Rack without having the unnecessary and hard-drive greedy step of collect and save.

Maybe because the link I provided actually answers your question - it tells how to save the rack with contents, not the whole project.

i'll pretend i'm naive and ignore your pedantic tone, and try to understand how this helps me to install a drum rack on another computer without having to create a new project :

"If, however, you want to give your pack to someone else, a different procedure is required.

Once again, you want to create the drum rack and save it. Ok, you should have done that in the previous steps. Now, what you need to do is drag that saved preset into the "Places" area into the section called "Current Project". Once you have dragged into there, you should see 3 folders:

your ableton set, your samples folder, and now your adg file.

Then you want to click in the blank space beneath the files/folders and click manage project. This will create an area on the right side of the screen where you can export your current project as a live pack, after you hit yes for the "collect into project" button for the samples."

So, it creates a Project with no .als file, a .adg file and a sample folder.

Then i can save it to the library, and delete the project folder.

But it's no way easier than just saving a new project and collect&save.

i admit i'm a bit confuse about the file management in this case :
Are the samples saved with the library in this case ?

Sorry, wasn't meaning to sound rude :)

In the Drum Rack's top right corner there's icon with a floppy disc, which - I'd imagine - saves the preset somewhere. I'd think that the collect & save process that the guy is talking about is there to make sure that all samples used in the project (and by extension - the rack as well) are copied to its folders.

I can't test it right now (I'm at work), but that Drum Rack file needs to be stored somewhere.

Maybe topic title should have read: "Live Pack w/ external files using Drum Rack as .adg instead of .als"

Bump.

I'm still very annoyed with this.
The goal is simple : I create a drum rack on one computer. I want to copy this drum rack to my computer.

I would love :

In the Browser, locate the preset file. Right-click : create a preset pack.

Then the created pack would allow you to install the preset (with the corresponding audio files) in the library.

Current best workaround is cumbersome :

Open a new live set. Open the Drum Rack in an empty track. Save the project. Collect and Save. Open on the new computer. Save the preset.
