Re: Cheapest machine that can run Logic Pro X in 2021

In the context of Prem Nath's needs, of course you're right.
I was wondering if it wasn't being extrapolated off the context ;-)

Re: Cheapest machine that can run Logic Pro X in 2021

With all due respect, honestly, David, are you telling people that they can base hardware purchase decisions on your running Logic Pro 10.6x "with no problem at all" on a "MacBook Air 1.3 GHz i5 — MacOS X 11.0.1 — 4 GB RAM"? Is that what people should expect? That may be true in ...

Re: Apple Logic Pro 10.6.0 is coming soon!

Those of us running on Classic Mac Pro towers only need to wait for the update fashion to loop around, like skinny ties, back to Intel chips, or at least to "revolutionary" PowerPC chips :mrgreen: Oh, and yes you CAN shoehorn Catalina into a Classic Mac Pro. But this hard sell update press...

Any way to turn off locked track nuisance warning?

The danger of slipping with the mouse and unknowingly changing something in a track is serious. It increases with the number of tracks in a big project. And if you're a bit spastic :roll: . It sure makes sense to keep tracks locked. BUT being able to examine tracks and click/play notes in the piano ...

Can you auto-sample an acoustic instrument?

Has anyone managed to use Auto-Sampler to simplify sampling an external acoustic instrument, say a guitar? Of course you can't trigger the guitar notes w/ MIDI, but might it prompt "now play a G2 note at mid velocity"? Or could you sequentially play and record the notes in order on a track...

Re: Work-flow? Project folders' date/time reflect change of contents?

Thank you, @facej, that's very helpful, I didn't know about macOS
smart folders. Now if we can figure out how to eliminate dupes,
things like that. Is the finder window the best display space for you?
Are there any other scriptable objects we could use?

Re: Work-flow? Project folders' date/time reflect change of contents?

Thank you. My question is still how most people manage their projects. Is your approach all we have? The find thing is helpful. Does anybody have any scripts to "touch" parent folders to propagate last modified dates? It would seem that having a reverse chronological sort is SO fundamental...

Re: Constant Beachballing

So, @paul88, did making (how much) space
on your startup drive solve the problem?

If not, how much RAM do you have?
What is your machine type, CPU speed,
disk type(s), peripherals, MIDI/Audio interface?
What network connections? to the Internet?

Work-flow? Project folders' date/time reflect change of contents?

How do y'all organize/find projects by date? This is simple stuff? I keep each project in "folder" mode, in its own folder and subfolders. I want sorting by date to work, so when I update say the .logicx file in a project subfolder, I'd expect the project's parent folder's Date Modified or...

Re: Beachball on Logic Menu?

No, it's not plugins. And although it's most noticeable with Logic, it shows up in other Mojave functionality too. I believe it's at the root of many "Mojave sluggish" complaints. I had to put a network analyzer on-line to watch the packet flow. So far what I've traced it to is DNS (Domain...

Re: Beachball on Logic Menu?

On Mojave Logic 10.4.8 exhibits the same problem as 10.5.1 if there's a point to point network connection to the PC. Although file sharing and Network MIDI work fine, Logic takes several minutes to start up, beachBall and huge lag on leftmost menu. Leaving the MacPro and the PC exactly as before, an...

Re: Beachball on Logic Menu?

On the studio computers, I don't want ANY connection to The Swamp. I just don't buy the whole "connected for your benefit" story. No dongles either. So, anyway, the mystery of this issue revolves around Mojave wanting an internet connection, but why it worked with High Sierra I don't yet u...

Re: Beachball on Logic Menu?

Oh yes, all projects, thank you @Triplets, and worse. Logic can take several minutes to start up. After that it runs OK, just don't expect a prompt response to anything in that first menu. I've narrowed it down after spending most of the day eliminating Audio Interfaces, project types, location of t...

Beachball on Logic Menu?

Updating my main macPro from HighSierra to Mojave (just to get Logic 10.5), I've had a rough ride. I'm starting to wonder if it's worth it :-( One strange issue is that in Logic 10.5.1 upon placing the mouse cursor on the Logic menu (the first after the Apple apple), I get a many seconds' beach ball...

Re: Logic ABSOLUTELY messed up bus assignments after opening a project?!

At times like this the retro idea of scoring to paper, hiring musicians and recording to multitrack sounds pretty appealing.
Almost.

Re: New iMac - 8 Core i7 vs 10 Core i9

Thanks, @triplets. I just got Mojave shoehorned in on my main 2009 4,1->5,1. That was a battle , and Catalina might be rougher. Had to do a blank slate install. Now I have to see how smartly the (unfamiliar 2 me) Migration Assistant will bring stuff over from the old High Sierra boot SSD. Hopefully ...

Re: New iMac - 8 Core i7 vs 10 Core i9

Oh, yes, I know it and use it. It's in my main bookmarks. But they didn't have these new iMacs listed last time i looked. I see they do now.

Seems like as a "last intel" if you already have displays, the i7 Mini looks pretty decent. Do you know if they plan a last 10th gen Intel mini?
