How do I migrate my library and playlists from one mac to another?

Dear Audirvana community,

Is there a way to migrate the whole library with all the playlists from one computer to another without having to export them one by one?


Apple hide the Home Folder in User Library at some time depending on OS System…
When you have clicked your Home Folder, and cannot see the Library Folder in there,
just do a ‘‘cmd J’’ to show the folder settings preferences and see at the bottom…
click Show Library Folder and then you’ll have access to the rest forever.

Close Audirvana.

Go to User… Home Folder… Library… Applications Support… Audirvana Folder
copy that folder (that is your database of music with your playlists).

Go to User… Home Folder… Library… Preferences…
copy com.audirvana.Audirvana-Plus.plist and com.audirvana.Audirvana.plist
in that folder (those are A+ software preferences).

Put them in the other Mac at the same place they were.
Restart the new Mac.
Put Audirvana in the Applications folder of the new Mac and start it.

If it is a new Mac and you will not use the other, you can de-authorize before starting
the new one if you have already use your 2 licenses.

For me, it is always a good idea to export all your playlists when they are set up like you want…
so, if a bug occured in your music database and you have to trash it, you don’t lose them :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot for your help! :slight_smile:
