I would much rather Amadeus did not use my Time Machine™ drive for temporary files. It makes the computer fuss when I am going to and fro between projects with my laptop.
In principle, the "Temp files" tab of the "Sound" panel one can open from the "Preferences…" drop-down from "Amadeus"'s column of the Mac's menu bar, should help me deal with this. It seems not to. The names of the various available drives are there --sometimes greyed (or in one case Purpled) out, sometime solid. Yet if I select the drive I would rather have Amadeus ignore, no good come of it. It won't delete, it can't be dragged to the trash. This behaviour persists even after stopping and starting Amadeus several times. All I've accomplished is to unset the "use the drive with the most free space" check-box.
Technicalities: Amadeus Pro Version 1.5.5 (1202), running on a "mid 2012" Retina MacBook Pro [2.6 GHz Intel Core i7], running Mac OS X.95
