Selecting Freesound download folder

Hi Ardour people. I’m having fun with your great software, but I would like to alter the folder in which I store Freesound files I download in-program. Currently it creates a folder in my home directory and keeps everything I listen to in there. How do I change that?

Thanks for awesome software!


There’s not (yet) a way to do this from the GUI: sorry! It can be changed using a text editor to edit the value of “freesound-download-dir” in Ardour’s configuration file, (on Linux, that’s in ~/.config/ardour4/config) to the full path to the directory you want to use.

For example, <Option name=“freesound-download-dir” value="/path/to/freesound/sounds"/>.

Thanks Colin! Worked like a treat.
