Can i uninstall Sampletank 2 after importing to Sampletank 3

Hi,

Can i uninstall Sampletank 2.5 XL and Miroslav Philarmonik 1 after I imported their sounds into Sampletank 3 SE?

Also, its a bit too much work to install 20+ separate installations that make up all the sounds i have for Sampletank and Miroslav, is there a way to backup all the sounds (after they are already installed and imported into Sampletank 3) into a single large folder, and in future installations simply copy that whole folder to the Instruments location of Sampletank 3?

Thank you and cheers

Hi ferez21.

Yes, you can uninstall but with the caveat that any DAW projects you have with ST2.5 or MP1 in them won't work properly. ST3 will not automatically replace them even if you have imported the sounds.

As for backing up the sound content, yes you can just copy the main Sampletank 3 folder that contains all your samples, instruments etc. The default location of these is:

Mac: Macintosh HD > Users > Shared > Documents > IK Multimedia > SampleTank 3

Windows: C:\Users\Public\Documents\IK Multimedia\SampleTank 3

Obviously if you have installed them anywhere other than the default then you will need to navigate your system to find them.

Hope that helps.
