  1. The whole filesystem on macOS (and Unix) has a permissions system that defines what users and programs can do with files on disk. A program can only create a folder if it has permissions to do so, and if there are issues with permissions, those writes will fail. For example, try creating a new test user account, and from there then reading or modifying a file from your regular user account - you can't, because the test user doesn't have the permissions to access or change another user's files.
  2. Generally speaking, when you first open a plugin, if that Audio/Presets/man/plugin folder doesn't exist, Logic (or the plugin, not sure) creates it. It's possible this fails due to permissions (or other reasons), which is why that folder doesn't exist, and you can't save files directly to the folder. Good to know that creating it manually, if needed, fixes the issue.
  3. A semi-serious point: No one who hears your music will be thinking "wow, that automation swell on the guitar was only only 0.9dB, instead of a nice round number 1.0dB". I get that we humans like round numbers, it *looks* clean and more "correct", but we often lose sight of what it *looks* like is not what's important. If it sounds good, and the number is only 0.87dB - that's fine. I think it's good to overcome some of the visual OCD that it's easy to get stuck in...
  4. SIP is System Integrity Protection, it protects your operating system files from being modified by other software. I doubt that turning this off will mean BFD will validate. You can try it if you want, but I think it's unlikely to help. Just make sure you csrutil enable again afterwards, if you want to try it.
  5. You shouldn't have to disable SIP to make a commercial third-party plugin work - that's pretty suspicious, and has significant security consequences for your system.
  6. Yes, the manual describes a lot of this stuff, but doesn't explicitly name them, largely for legal reasons - which is what I thought you were after. So if you want to find out the actual names of the amps and FX modelled, you'll have to do some searching around based on the info that Apple do provide, and the graphic styles etc.
  7. Apple don't document this, but often the clues are in the icons and styling used, eg for the guitar stuff, and if you're familiar with typical guitar gear etc, you'll have a good idea what the gear is.
  8. I wondered if it might be related to flex. You might want to bounce that flex track to audio, to keep working for now (keep the original flex track, but once it's bounced to audio, just turn it off and hide it), which will at least keep you working...
  9. Hmm, that's not good! You should certainly send those crash reports to Apple. Is this only on one project? If so, can you turn off groups of tracks and see if the crash goes away during playback - and therefore try to identify what track this is occurring on, or if it's plugin related etc...
  10. Yes, it means two successive MIDI messages will carry the combined 14-bit signal, extracted by Logic in the manner you document.
  11. Ah great - glad it was helpful! Like a lot of things, once you know the right way, it's not super hard, but it's often not intuitive or logical to know how to get there sometimes - that's where a bit of help or some pointers come in handy!
  12. The Modulation -> Tremelo plugin will do it, if you want a constant modulation:
  13. Note that as the Triton only supports 8 parts, to get 16 parts if you need them you'll need two instances of the plugin. (So, New track -> Triton, Multitimbral 8 parts for the first 8 tracks, then repeat that for the second 8 tracks.)
  14. You can use the Project Import feature to import content from one project into another... https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/logicpro/lgcpce085447/mac
