Is there a way to have Kyma automatically locate missing files?

0 votes

One of my external drives crashed recently and I lost many audio files referenced in Kyma sounds.  Luckily I'd backed up the audio files on another drive (with another name), but when I try to open the Kyma sounds I have to find each audio file individually.  Some of my Kyma sounds reference dozens of audio files so loading these can take several minutes.  Is there an automatic search option for the missing files so I don't have to do this manualy?

Did you add the new drive (or the folder containing the samples) to the frequently used folders in Kyma?

Kyma first looks for a file in its original location; if the file is missing, Kyma then checks each of the folders in the Frequently Used Folders to see if that folder (or one of its subfolders) contains the missing file.

Choose Preferences from the Edit menu and click the Frequently Used Folders button to set this up.
