I recently purchased GarageBand's additional content (the $4.99 for everything one) specifically to acquire the drummers. Now I've got around 10GB of unused content eating up a significant portion of my hard drive. How do I remove the sounds and loops installed by GarageBand?

    Check your /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops for GarageBand – Ruskes Oct 11 '14 at 19:39

You should look for it in the following place, copy following and paste it in to the Go to Folder in the Finder.

/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops for GarageBand


*If you are wondering how I did it, since I do not use the Garageband:

I used the mdfind -name Garageband in Terminal that showed me all locations for it. After that it was easy.*
