    Im trying to add an instrument group to drop box, so I can link it here for critiques and ideas. As well as a starting point for new producers.

    I'm having a hard time finding the file, any mac users know where their stored?

    thanks

    Maybe a silly question, but did you save it?

    It might be easier to just upload a song file with only the instrument in it? I don't use Live much (I have a lite version I got for free with my midi keyboard). But I assume you mean things like sampler patches and other instruments in Live.

    Which version? In 9 if you go into your user library and find the saved instrument group you can right click (cmd-click) and "Show in Finder" You might also try searching for .adg files.

    Also when I saved a rack it showed up in /Users/sulihin/Music/Ableton/User Library/Presets/Instruments, so check there! (replacing sulihin with your user name of course....)
