Logic Pro Help Forum rules
- Are you looking for a fast, accurate answer?
- Would you prefer to avoid having your questions moved, edited or deleted?
=> Then please read on, and help us make Logic Pro Help an organized database of questions/answers that's easy to browse and search.
1) Post your question in the correct forum
Read the forum descriptions on the Board Index, and post your question in the correct forum.
2) Choose a descriptive thread title
Your thread title should sum up the topic of your thread as accurately as possible to give readers a quick idea of the subject it discusses.
• Newb needs urgent help - desperate!!!
• Logic Pro 9.1.6 question for the gurus
• Problem trying to get this to work asap
• Beat mapping deletes all tempo curves?
• Connect my hardware synth to my computer?
• Can't hear my guitar when I arm its track for recording
3) One thread per topic
Do not post the same question more than once. If your question is not getting answered, reply to it, adding more detail if possible, to bring it back up.
4) One topic per thread
Do not ask several unrelated questions in the same thread, create one thread for each topic.
5) Give detailed information on your music studio
Most questions cannot be answered without this information. Add the following details to your signature
• Which version/sub-version of Logic (e.g. Logic 9.1.6)
• Which version/sub-version of OS X (e.g. OS 10.7.2)
• What computer (MacBook, Mac Pro, iMac)?
• What CPU (Intel, PPC)? Speed?
• How much RAM?
• What kind of hard drives?
• What audio interface?
• Anything else we should know?
6) Give detailed information on your issue
Members attempting to help you cannot see your screen, and don't know how your studio is set-up. Give as much information as possible, including:
• How your devices are connected (keyboards, mixers, MIDI and Audio connections, speaker monitors, headphones, etc...)
• What you are attempting to do (the general musical goal)
• What steps you've taken so far to reach that goal (the tools/techniques you've tried to use)
• At which step(s) you're encountering the problem
• What the problem is exactly
7) Update your thread with your results
If someone took the time to answer your thread, take the time to update the thread to tell them if their answer helped you or not. It's basic etiquette to thank the person who took the time to help you, and it's also very useful for anyone else reading the thread to know if the suggested solution worked or not.
If you solve your own problem, please take a minute to update your thread and explain how you solved it, however obvious the solution was. In the future, someone with the same problem may search the forum and find your thread. If you've simply updated your thread with "problem fixed", that's.. enraging! If you explain how you fixed it, it's a big help for that user.
8) Do not post commercial links
Commercial links will be deleted, and in certain cases the persons posting them will be banned. If you're not sure whether a link is a commercial link, ask before you post. If you do not receive an answer, do not post.
9) Do not send your question privately to a moderator or admin (or to anyone)
Post your question in the forum, where all members can benefit from the discussion now and in the future.
10) Do not answer a question with a link to another site without first making sure that link contains the answer to the question.
Posting a link to a 10mn video that does not answer the original question is obviously a waste of everybody's time. If you really feel like a video or an external link answers a question better than you could by simply posting a few words in the thread, then at least indicate how to get to the information quickly, i.e.: "watch that video @ 5:32". Often it is just as easy to answer the question in a few words, which makes it quicker for anyone reading the thread to get to the information.
THANK YOU! And enjoy our forums.
