Re: BFDLAC Tool...

So update here: I wiped my drive, reinstalled OS and reinstalled BFD3. All good.

Update regarding BFDLAC tool. Indeed you can find a "stand alone" app here:

Re: BFDLAC Tool Shenanigans

Okay thanks, Yeah no worries - I copied the WAVs before I ran the encoder so I'll just try it again. Just seems like a very strange bug (some kind of recursive code in the script I would guess.) No biggie. I've learned not to be too surprised by BFD's installers / software's idiosyncrasies. Given ho...

BFDLAC Tool Shenanigans

So last night I ran the BFDLAC Tool to compress Jazz and Funk WAV files and make room on a disk. Here's my settings: Screen Shot 2018-06-27 at 10.51.12 PM.png Which I took to mean: Take the files in the folder BFD Jazz and Funk, compress them, send them to the folder Jazz and Funk/BFDLAC, remove the...

Re: BFDLAC Tool...

You're a legend Purtington. Yeah, I realized it was in the app right after posting, but good to know about reversing to WAV in the stand alone! Hey, I have another question if you're game. I am attempting to authorize an expansion pack. Ican see that the authorizer is attempting to access a path tha...

BFDLAC Tool...

Hi community: Just wondering: does this tool still exist? If so, where is it downloadable from (it's not installed on my BFD computer as far as I can tell, and it's not in my available downloads on fxpansion's website - again as far as I can tell). If it doesn't exist, why? Google results for "...

Re: Content paths

So grooves living on external drive in a unique directory is fine. There is an annoying side effect to rescanning: Some items seem to persist in the app's database in spite of not actually existing anymore. You then have to right click --> remove from database. Some other items do not behave this wa...

Re: Content paths

Yes, you can put all your grooves in one folder and then rescan. My grooves are all in a separate folder. Sweet. I'll do that then. Further down that road, I imagine I can organize them however I want in the finder, and BFD will just scan subdirectories for content... I also imagine that I can do t...

Re: Content paths

Still wondering though:

Can I just store all my grooves anywhere I want? Is there any reason I should not do this?

Re: Content paths

Never mind.

If I throw the .bfd2pal file into a text editor I can modify the info_library= parameter to something useful.

...and yes: that parameter was set to "user"

Content paths

I've been performing a clean install of BFD3, the core library and all my expansion packs. It's been quite a journey... ;) In all cases I pointed the installer to a unique sub folder inside a parent folder called "BFD" on an external drive. Thus I now have this: Volume/BFD /BFD Heavy/Audio...

Thanks Drew_fx, After reinstalling everything and tracking the library drop down as I went it turns out that the only one that showed up as "unknown" was the CHIMP presets and kits. The unknowns from my earlier post might have been from some 1.5 content that I imported. I was however able ...

So I installed imperial drums and all the presets came up as "user" - while all the kits came up as "unknown". I used text wrangler to change the info_library and info_librarylong metadata from "user" to "CHIMP". Interestingly this worked, but when I tried som...

Okay, so next I installed Oblivion and in this case the installer created a grooves folder at the install path that I specified, but kits were installed in the Kits folder here: /Library/Application\ Support/FXpansion/BFD3/System With JM Essentials the grooves that did not show up (see my last post)...

Hey purtington, Thanks for this. Great info. I've trash everything, and I'm starting my install from scratch... I'm launching BFD after each install to track how things are categorized. So far so good, but I did notice that after installing the JM essentials grooves that the JM essential presets sho...
