It's been quite awhile since I've been on this forum, and the programs I'm using are definitely older versions of the Vienna Strings Library. I have the Horizon Series Opus 1 and Solo Strings, and here's my setup:
MacPro desktop, OS 10.5.8
Logic Pro 8.0.2
EXS Standard Manager
Internal Computer Setup (3 hard drives)
Main hard drive: OS, Logic Pro software
2nd hard drive: All Logic Pro audio files recorded to this drive
3rd hard drive: Vienna Library samples, Siedlaczek Advanced Orchestra samples
Neither the Vienna Strings Library or the Sielaczek Advanced Orchestra are showing up or loading into the EXS24 Sampler menu in Logic. It's not a routing issue, as I've consulted Andrea Gozzi at Redmatica, who told me it is because the Vienna and Siedlaczek files are not .exs files. How do I convert the .wav and .aif files to read as .exs files, or is there another solution?
Things worked fine before with a previous Mac desktop computer, and I had the Vienna Strings and Siedlaczek Orchestra stored on an external hard drive. Then I had to change my setup because that computer failed, and so when I got the new computer I was able to install three internal hard drives, one of which I've dedicated to most of my virtual instruments. I've not been able to get the Vienna Strings or Siedlaczek Orchestra to load into the EXS24 Sampler since then. I can't remember if I copied the files from the old external hard drive to the new internal drive or re-installed them from the DVD's, or if that would even be the cause for things not working with the EXS24 Sampler.
I appreciate any help you can send my way!

seems there is some confusion ....

EXS libraries always consist of 2 parts: the samples folder and the Sampler Instruments folder,

please see also your setup- and library-manuals http://www.vsl.co.at/en/68/427/157/192.vsl


to my knowledge the required location for the .exs files has changed with logic 8 or logic pro (something like /user/library/application or such ... see logic manual)


you may also need to install the VSL performance tool (plugin to exs)

and remember: a CRAY is the only computer that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...
