How to change default file location

I Hav e all my song files in folders on my external hard drive, how can I get Artist 8.5 to save to this location and not the default. On previous versions of cubase in the preference you could set the location to any drive on your computer. Mac El Capitan

I am not at my computer at the moment but the project assistant should show the project location as well as the name for your project at the bottom. Simply direct to the location you want to save the project. Box bottom left “Use Default Location”. Obviously this will only work if the external drive is plugged in before you start Cubase.
