The actual guitar goodness of Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE – the audio content – is packed into a so-called blob file named VG-SPARKLE.blob which is about 3.9 GB big. You can keep the blob file anywhere you like (e.g. on a separate content drive). During standard installation, it will be put into the following locations on your system drive:
Installing to a different drive on OS X If you wish to install the blob file onto a separate drive, you can set a different content installation folder in the installer. • Open the installer and follow the procedure to step “Installation Type” • Click “VG SPARKLE Content” to select it – as shown in the image below – and follow the instructions in the installer.
OS X Installer – Change Content Location (shown for VG IRON here)
Installing to a different drive on Windows The Windows installer will ask you if you want to install the content to a different directory. On Windows, you can also set a different location for the plug-in, however we recommend to leave this untouched unless you have a good reason.
Windows Installer – Change Content Location
Changing the content location after installation You can always change the content location after installation by just moving the VG-SPARKLE.blob file:
- Move your file to the desired location (different folder or different drive)
- Launch your DAW and open Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE. It will present you with a dialog asking for the file location. Simply point to the new location of the VG-SPARKLE.blob file – done.
