Re: New Logic update 10.4.5 is here! Topic is solved

I usually program drums in the step editor, and I've encountered a strange behavior since installing 10.4.5: sometimes when drawing in a note with the pencil, a different note will play. Instead of playing the note I'm drawing, Logic will play a different note that's playing at the same time. For ex...

The list of bug fixes and performance enhancements in the full release notes is extensive. This is a pretty big update, for some reason.

Low-Latency Mode / CPU

This is more of a confirm-how-this-works for me rather than a problem, since I think I have this figured out, but please bear with me. I just upgraded from a 2011 iMac i7 to a 2018 Mac Mini i7. So: big CPU upgrade. I have a template where all of my tracks are routed to submix buses, which are then r...

Re: Anyone using Latest Logic & Mojave advice?

Yup, I also upgraded to a new Mac Mini last week (including updating the OS and Logic version), and so far the only problem was a single project that crashed on opening -- unless I opened it after already having another project open. No idea why (it complained about Ozone crashing), but once I got i...

Re: about to order new Mac Mini or Trash Can Mac Pro ?

Wow, yeah, that Ars review is pretty harsh. I get the frustration with the new Mini, but for me, I've got an old iMac (the calculus might be different with an old Mac Pro) and a Thunderbolt audio interface that I really like. My choices are basically a new iMac with a previous-generation processor w...

Re: Plugins scan and Mojave ?

I have this problem in High Sierra -- I was told it was fixed in Mojave, but it seems like maybe not. In High Sierra, at least, killing AudioComponentRegistrar before you open Logic seems to get the scan to run normally (this was suggested to me on another forum, and it did work when I tried it). So...

Re: Mac-Based Apple Special Event October 30, 2018

With the performance of the A12X, it seems like we're closing in on ARM on the desktop/laptop in the next iteration, no? I bought one of the first Intel Macs ... will I also inadvertently buy one of the last? (Seems like maybe.)

Re: Mac-Based Apple Special Event October 30, 2018

The Geekbench scores for the 6-core i5 are about 75% higher in single-core, 120% in multi-core, than the 2011 15" Macbook Pro. I'm going to wait for the iFixIt teardown to see just how accessible the RAM is (ie., truly consumer-accessible, or officially authorized-service-only), but these are l...

Re: Mac-Based Apple Special Event October 30, 2018

The RAM is a so-dimm, looks to be user upgradable. Probably going to be my next computer in the near future. Ah, that changes things. Still expensive as hell, but if the thermals aren't terrible, a possible win. I want to replace my iMac by the end of the calendar year to expense it, so if there ar...

Re: Mac-Based Apple Special Event October 30, 2018

Really disappointed in the lack of iMac update at this event; I like the iMac form factor, but the current Retina iMacs are out-of-date, and the Pro is too much machine for me. I need something with more processor than I'm running now, 16+GB of RAM, and 512GB+ of SSD (and Thunderbolt). I specced a M...

Re: Mid-2018 Macbook Pros

Yeah, supposedly the fix improves performance significantly on the i9. I wonder about the 6-core i7, though, since performance is similar-enough without sending the price totally into the stratosphere (it's a 5ish% spec-bump with a 10-15% price bump). I'd like to consider the top-spec 13-inch, for p...

Re: audio interface with two headphone outputs Topic is solved

My interface has two headphone outputs (and multiple monitor outputs), but I have a cheap little mixer (an old 6-channel Behringer) that I use sometimes when I'm tracking with somebody else. Run monitor outs into the mixer, artist gets headphones from the mixer and they can control their own level. ...

Re: Mid-2018 Macbook Pros

Can you even get one without an SSD anymore? Problem is I have a 21.5" iMac right now, and adding an SSD is much harder than on the 27" of the same vintage.

Mid-2018 Macbook Pros

Am I losing it or are the specs on these things just bonkers? The top-spec 13" Macbook Pro has single-core performance to match the iMac Pro. Of course, it's a $2500 13" laptop, but considering I paid almost $2k for my current iMac 7 years ago (!!!), it doesn't seem like such a terrible de...

Jumping in here because the issue I was coming to post about seems to be adjacent to this one. I'm working on a project in 96k with a group of phase-locked drum tracks as well as a few other audio tracks, all with Flex & Follow enabled. Occasionally, one or more of the regions will play at the c...

I encountered a really strange playback issue yesterday. I upgraded to 10.3 because I thought I didn't have any big projects coming up, so of course I got a request for a recall (oops). Just wondering if anybody else has seen anything this odd in 10.3 yet. I have an ugly comp (shown in the attached ...

Re: Drummer - separate outs for cymbals?

If you absolutely have to have the cymbals on a separate track, you can convert the Drummer regions to MIDI, duplicate the track, and mute / delete the non-cymbal notes (and do the opposite on the drum-only track).

Re: Unexplained software instrument track behavior

Ah, good thought, but no, those options are set to the default (no control). And, unfortunately, none of the instruments that have had the transpostion problem respond to pitch bend. I'm really stumped on these. I wish I had some reliable way to reproduce them, but it really does seem sort of random.

Nope, not as far as I know. I actually just installed the latest drivers ... unless that was the problem. Both the MIDI controller and FW interface are super old.

Unexplained software instrument track behavior

Hi all, I know I have a bad mod wheel on my MIDI controller--it sends random messages sometimes--but I've got some strange behavior that I'm not sure is explained by that. There are two problems, which may or may not be related: 1. Sometimes, EXS24 tracks switch to the next patch in the list (I had ...
