With the ABSYNTH 4.0.4 (and 4.0.5) updates, ABSYNTH changed the location for the sounds from the ABSYNTH 3 Factory Content. Those updates saved the content to a subfolder of the ABSYNTH 4 sounds folder, and left the old folder intact. In order to fix this, proceed as follows:
- Delete the old folder. By default, the content folder is found here:
- Windows: C: > Program Files > Common Files > Native Instruments > Shared Content > Sounds > Absynth 3
- Mac: Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Native Instruments > Shared Content > Sounds > Absynth 3
- After that, rebuild your database.
