How do I find my SAGE folder (Stylus RMX Library)?


The data files for Stylus RMX are stored in your SAGE folder. When you update your patches or soundsources, you are updating files in your SAGE folder, which was created when you originally installed Stylus RMX. Your SAGE folder is located inside your Spectrasonics folder. See the instructions below to find your Spectrasonics folder. Inside your Spectrasonics folder you'll find SAGE, which may be the SAGE folder, or it may be an alias (Mac) or Shortcut (Window) to the SAGE folder.

On Mac, the Spectrasonics folder is located here:

Macintosh HD/Users/<Your Username>/Library/Application Support/Spectrasonics

From Mac OS X 10.7 and higher, Apple have made the User - Library folder a hidden folder by default. This is to stop general Mac users fiddling with settings, however, music makers will require using this folder from time to time.

Please see the handy article below from OS X Daily on how to unhide your User Library folder in Mac OS X 10.7 or higher
