Moving Native Instruments Sample Content or Maschine Directory

Quick Update:*Waving* HHheeey You! What’s been up? I had to handle the school business over the last 2 weeks. Yes, I will finally finish my degree after a long time away from college. I had a hard time deciding what my major would be. I already have two years in communications, with a secondary in Art. I know some are surprised, but I didn’t go with music as my 1st choice. I am really into the whole web atmosphere, as well as music. I will study Web Design and Interactive Media at Art Institute, and take a few course through point Blank Music Production School. I figured this is a win win for all of us. I’ll be able to upgrade my site, help you with yours,makes apps, and do my music..woo hoo words can’t describe how happy I am today…Expect wonderful changes here as I learn..:)……….

I’ve been meaning to share this with you since I upgraded to Maschine 1.7…..
I had a time loading 1.7, as well as moving my Kore 2 content. I installed Maschine on my second hard drive instead of main c drive. The second drive failed. Later i re-installed on the main drive. NI suggest you load everything on one drive (the c drive), but for some, it may be better to place content on different drive. If you move content after initial installation (ex:second drive fails etc.),your software will search 1st database location.

In my case, when it came time to upgrade, the software searched for the “D:” drive, which I no longer had connected. No matter what I tried I got the error:\”invalid drive d\”. Along with upgrading Maschine, I also needed to move my Kore Player 2 Sample Content.

There are two ways to fix this.

1.Replace faulty drive, and do a new install maschine/content, making sure the drive letter stays the same as before.

2.Install Maschine or Content on “C:” .Change the directory path by going to the Windows registry by typing “regedit” in the Search bar located in the
start menu.
From here….

(For Maschine)
Navigate to :
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments\Maschine
Make sure the “InstallDir” key is correct, and if not modify it to reflect the
correct path of the Maschine.(or drive installed Maschine)

For other NI Software Sample Content
Navigate to:
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NativeInstruments\Kore 2\Kore 2 Sample Content\
Make sure “ContentDir” key is correct,and if not modify it to reflect correct path of Sample Content on your C: drive. (or which ever drive u placed content)

Here is what my corrected “ContentDir” path looks like:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Native Instruments\Kore 2\Kore 2 Sample Content\

Now everything is working smooth…I know this is a little techy, so if you have any questions hit me up in the comment section…

Happy Beat Making To All!~
Pz Til Later…
