Re: Project end adding insane amount of time

it's not the app (altho it does add measures when i work, just not like that). it's the project. turn on automation, check all your tracks, see if there'a anything copying far into the future.............

Re: Project end adding insane amount of time

always hated that; seems when i go in to record a part, the end is extended. i just keep track of where i want it (ie measure 71), then move the end marker back later. and repeat. until i'm finally done mixing... EDIT: oh wait, just looked at your images larger, and... that's insane. see if there's ...

Re: Time Machine vs. Carbon Copy Cloner

I like Time Machine because it's built-in and always quietly working. Every now and then you glance down at the external hard drive and see that the light is blinking. You can very easily look through past versions of anything that has been backed up. It also backs up other things like Mail. When I...

Re: MIDI sync alert

Wait. Your project sample rate is 176.4 kHz? no, 88.2 kHz. The error gives about 40 kHz used to happen to me a lot (with arturia's spark plugin). just some (for me) random moments when the plugin lost sync with the logic project. are you getting this error a lot? you could reboot, open the project,...

Re: Run a serious studio from a MacBook Pro?

best processor can be an unnecessary expense in the new models. The i7s in the 13" barely outperform the i5s, and the i9s... are thermally limited anyway. i would go for, at least, the i7 over the i5, at the absolute least... just a quick google search (& you can find mac-specific info as ...

Re: Run a serious studio from a MacBook Pro?

i had a studio in times square for several years; everyone wanted time in exchange for a 'percentage of the song', or needed a favor (a mix, a vocal session, etc). when i said 'no, here's my rate'... a lot of people vanished. when i closed the studio, i felt soooo good ... until i started back up on...

Re: Omnisphere not playing first MIDI note

are you starting your project on measure 1? try starting everything on measure 2. or check the piano roll; is the note right on the grid? ahead of it? perhaps move it a fraction to the right... a small fraction!

Why don't you have some donation jar/thingy setup? I mean, i'd rather not disable my ad blocker as ads annoy me greatly and really mess with this site on ipad. And what will you profit from 'me' seeing them in a year, $5? I dunno? I'd rather just donate the equivalent to you/thesite, and continue t...
