lpx_links: New Logic Content Utility

Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:27 pm

Hi
It's been a while. Just a heads up. I've made a utility that helps with getting the latest content
download links for Logic Pro X 10.1.1
For now it just gets the links and outputs them to a text file.

Over time (read as I get time ) I hope to implement some other tools in it as well.

    Download Manager
    Content Installer (Install to User Defined Location)
    Content Re-locator (Move content to another drive - with auto linking)
    Content Re-linker (Attempts to fixes the links should they something go wrong)

I have just updated my utility that gets all the download links to the additional content.
You can use a download manager and install from there. http://bit.ly/lpx_links

I'm missing the purpose of this. How is this different from using the downloaded additional content function in Logic?

Never mind, I just read that some people were having download issues.

In case anyone needs to use David T's lpx_links utility with Logic 10.2.1, there are some things that need to be updated:

After following David's instructions on Github, you'll get a "no such file or directory" error from Ruby in Terminal, but you'll still get a "lpx_links" folder created in your Downloads folder although it won't include the actual links to the content. To fix this, open the "config.rb" (lpx_links/app/lib/) with a text editor and change the following:

From this:

RSC = '/Contents/Resources/logicpro1020.plist'
URL = 'http://audiocontentdownload.apple.com/lp10_ms3_content_2015/'

To this:

RSC = '/Contents/Resources/logicpro1021.plist'
URL = 'http://audiocontentdownload.apple.com/lp10_ms3_content_2016/'

Save and quit out of your text editor.

Now, to get the links to the content written to a file, enter the following in terminal:

cd ~/Downloads/lpx_links/app/; ruby lpx_links.rb


Of course, all of this will be unnecessary once David updates his code :)

Update done!

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't had time to use logic in while and didn't realise there was a new version.

Hi David
Unfortunately, same problem still exist. Is there an update coming up? What do you suggest for the error?
Great idea, btw!

Hi, for some reason David's version detection is not working here either.

You can work around the error by hardcoding the current LPX version in the appropriate places in the "config.rb" file.

So open the file and replace #{VERSION} with 1023 (yes, that's correct. For some reason the plist inside Logic 10.2.4 is is still using 10.2.3, go figure). 

So to be more specific, you need to edit lines 6 and 16 in config.rb so that they end up like this:

RSC     = "/Contents/Resources/logicpro1023.plist"
JSN_FLE = File.join(JSN_DIR, "logicpro1023_content.json")

Once that is done and you save the file, use the commands from my previous post.

Hi, 
Once again thanks for the heads up. 
I've added wildcard selection for the .plist file now so hopefully it won't happen again.
