Where are saved Snapshot presets located on your harddrive?

Postby RetroKyth » Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:55 pm

Hello All,
I was just curious where the snapshot presets that you save reside on your harddrive (in case you want to share them, etc.). The dialogue box shows com.Plogue.aria but when I browse to that location I don't see the user folder or any of the snapshot files that the dialogue shows are there (.ariax files). I don't see them when I browse for invisible files either. Thanks.

Hi,

The default location for saved Snapshots on Windows is at:
C:\Users\"UserName"\AppData\Roaming\Plogue\Aria\Presets\com.Plogue.Aria

On Mac: /Users/"UserName"/Library/Application Support/Plogue/Aria/Presets/com.Plogue.Aria

You can choose to save them anywhere on your computer, but they won't be available in the snapshots menu, only from the 'import' option or by drag and drop on the GUI.

Hope this helps.

I'm still not seeing this. For reference I am running Lion on a newish iMac.

/Users/Me/ does not have a folder called Library in it

there is a Library folder at the same level as User though, and that chain goes like this

/Library/Application Support/Plogue/Aria/ and then there is no folder called Presets here, just one called Plugins which has some bundle files.

Thanks to apple the Library folder is by default HIDDEN in Lion (where as previously it was always visible in 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6)
There are tutorials how to make them reapear but it requires messing with the command line and we wont be responsible for problems :)

EDIT: Seb tells me if you hold option key while you use the GO menu of finder you should have Library appear

If you want to show hidden files in you Lion install:
