During a session, AudioSculpt refers to a specific folder, where all the material – sound files, analysis files and so on – that is used and created is stored. This folder is called the UserHome folder.
AS is started up via the application launcher – AS X.X.X–, which is originally located in the application folder.
AS can also be started from an alias anywhere in the machine hard drive or from the dock. To start the application, double click on the AS icon.
By default, the
This folder is specified in the AudioSculpt preferences.
To access this folder, select
AudioSculpt X.X.X./Preferences/Environment. The default folder is refered to as $DEFAULTWD.
If you use this folder at a session, files will be stored by default in its corresponding subfolders.
Files can be accessed or saved in any other location though.
AudioSculpt can operate with several UserHome folders. This allows to organize the material used by several different users, or for distinct projects.
To create a new
UserHome folder :
create a folder in any location of your computer – this folder will be empty at first
select the current $DEFAULTWD folder
restart the application.
The folder now contains the same items as the default AS folder. The folder you choose will contain the same sub folders as the application folder, once you resart AS.
To create and choose another
UserHome folder, proceed in the same manner.
To reset the default
UserHome folder, click on
Defaults and restart the application.
