    I use Logic Pro with a variety of sampled and other instruments.

    I'm wanting to get my instruments/samples folders organized better-get a proper handle on where its all located, etc. I've always just installed the instruments on my internal HD, wherever the various installers wanted to install them. Not surprisingly, I now find that the instruments and sound files are in various places.

    Some are in HD>Library>Application Support/
    Others in HD>Users>Shared/

    According to some manuals, often the sound files should be in Users/My User Name/Library/Application Support/. But in the My User Name folder, there is no library folder.

    I'm wondering if that Library folder that's at the highest level of the hard drive should be in the My User Name folder? Maybe it got moved by mistake?

    The instruments that are in the HD/ Users/Shared folder are just loose in there, there is no Libray/Application Sport folder in there. Should there be?

    I'm thinking these instruments from the two folders should all be in the same place?

    have you any native instrument plugs?
    it creates a shared folder where you're looking. is that it?
