The main content of our Plug-ins (samples etc.) is contained in a file of the type "blob" ("binary large object").
You can choose the installation location during the setup, standard locations are:
Changing the location during the installation process (works only for the internal disk):
As content files can be pretty big, some of you want to store them on external drives rather than filling up space on your primary internal disk.
How to move the content files (ending with ".blob") retrospectively
1. Move your blob file to the desired location (different folder or different drive). Don't move the whole folder, just the file.
For example, the .ops file for Virtual Guitarist CARBON is called VG-CARBON.blob (4,36 GB) and the file for Beatmaker DOPE is called BM-DOPE.blob:
2. Then launch your DAW and open the product. It will present you a dialog asking for the file location:
3. Simply point to the new location of the *.blob file – done. ✔️
- Choosing a wrong blob file will crash the plug-in and DAW! Let's say you update your plug-in to version 2.1 but accidentally choose the 2.0 blob file – you will now have to delete the .settings file of the plug-in or even remove the files and reinstall the plug-in.
