I have just had to do a clean install of Big Sur. All my Alchemy legacy libraries are backed up on a SSD but I presume I won't be able to install the old Alchemy on this Mac so is there still a way to point Logic Alchemy 2 to the legacy library location without installing the old Alchemy and setting the path from there (which is how I did it on my old system)? I presume there must be a .plist or something that contains the information needed?

Cool thanks that seems easy enough - and I can probably do it with a symlink to the SSD

Actually this method works better than the 'Load legacy library' method because I can see all my old Alchemy libraries alongside the new ones and don't have to switch between new and legacy views. You just need to create symlinks to each legacy library folder inside the same folder the new libraries are kept. Then rescan presets in Alchemy. This way you also get them appearing in the library browser and they share the same ratings file.
