Nice color! Though "IK red" and the basics (black & white) are quite powerful in their own right :)

.DMG files for mac! YESSSSSSSSSSSS! no bloomin .zip files to faff with. THANK YOU! you've made my day. well, this internet connection is going to feel rather loved but wrecked for the next few days as I don't have previous libraries etc to fall back on, I literally have to download the lot.

I do wish that for something this big, that a torrent system could be implemented to save strain on browser downloads, etc. any thoughts on that @peter_IK

Our CDN shouldn't make torrent files necessary but I've re-engaged in some conversation about general download/update management.

it's more a question of accessibility, I'm registered blind, so as such I'm using a screen reader, running safari (latest build) with OS X Mojave 10.14.3. here's an example, I'm downloading these files, setting them up in safari, but I have to keep track with Voiceover as to what files I'm grabbing, so why not for the bigger stuff, create either a master torrent for max 4 or break it into smaller torrents for all the parts per volume? makes it easier to keep track. I've just listened to the amount of data there and it's a challenge. OK I wish I had the physical installer, but budget due to saving and rebuilding my studio after a family tragedy means cutting cloth, so went for the download only so that a combination of delivery and VAT were reduced.

You need to download each of the sound library files in the dropdown.

Things like that would be in SampleTank 4 MAX. If you don't already have them, you can download and install them. Otherwise, you can point SampleTank 4 to your previous SampleTank 3 library directly (as SampleTank 4 allows you to now point to multiple locations).

Okay so I got the MAX one. So ALL of those directories need to be linked together before I can run the sound content installer? This is like 30 Downloads.

You would download and install each of those downloads. Yes, it is a lot of content (~260GB in the end).

Right, but most of these are not new they are just expansion downloads that were available from ST3 (Like the Neil Peart Download) no? I feel like I'm really missing something here.

If you already have it and have installed it, you don't need to install it. The new content does need to be installed.

Yeah I get that. But this was advertised as "250 Gb of NEW" stuff. How much of this 250 Gb is actually new and exclusive to ST4 that was not previously available as an add on to ST3?
