The actual strings goodness of Symphonic Elements STRIIIINGS – the audio content – is packed into a so-called blob file named SE-STRIIIINGS.blob which is about 4.7 GB large.
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:
(assuming your system drive is C)
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 “SE STRIIIINGS Content” to select it – as shown in the image below – and follow the instructions in the installer.
OS X Installer – Change Content Location
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 leaving this untouched unless you have a good reason.

Changing the content location after installation
You can always change the content location after installation by just moving the SE-STRIIIINGS.blob file:
- Move your file to the desired location (different folder or different drive)
- Launch your DAW and open Symphonic Elements STRIIIINGS. It will present you with a dialog asking for the file location. Simply point to the new location of the SE-STRIIIINGS.blob file – done.
