Hey there guys,
I would really love to understand if there’s a solution to this problem. In DAWs like Ableton Live, Studio One and Logic Pro, the integrated sampler allows you to save used samples as part of the project so that the single project directory can be moved to other computers and opened without absolute directory path references for each of the used files. This allows people to collaborate on Dropbox or simply send a project backwards and forwards with no concerns about locating samples which have been used in sampler instruments.
I have tried this with Kontakt, Battery and Groove Agent ONE and all sample references appear to reference the full original path of the WAV file. There’s no way to package used files into the project folder and moving projects to a computer that doesn’t contain the same directory structure and drive letters causes endless amounts of “file not found” dialog boxes.
Based on my questions to Steinberg on a few past forum posts, it seems that Halion also has this limitation and the only suggestion I have come across so far is to use Phalax (by Vengeance) which gives the option to save used samples in the project file itself.
I really hope I’m missing something in this regard and that there’s a solution to this problem that I’m simply unaware of.
Any help at all (even confirmation that there is NO solution) would be greatly appreciated.
