Re: Plugin windows behavior changed yet?

No, I'm simply saying, this is the way it's been implemented, for whatever reason, and if you think if could be improved, send them some feedback (as you have done.) I made no comment on how I feel about the current implementation at all... it's a workflow thing really - I can't say in using Logic s...

Re: Internal output limiter?

My point is: since I work already way below 0dBFS (around -9dB as a starting point), I'm just saying that having a limiter set to -1dB would allow me to catch those very unexpected peaks Well, it would mean the maximum level sent to your audio interface would be -1dBFS, rather than 0dBFS... so you'...

Re: Internal output limiter?

What I mean is that, no matter how loud Logic is (0 or above it) the D/A converters always receive the same which is 0dBFS. Correct? The *maximum* volume that can be output is 0dBFS, nothing higher, as this is the point the internal 32bit-float signal is changed to a 24-bit fixed point signal for y...

Re: Plugin windows behavior changed yet?

I think the problem is that windows are referenced based on the plugin slots. If you open a window for plugin slot 1, then insert a new plugin before plugin slot 1, the plugin slots are reordered, and the window showing plugin slot 1 will change to show the new plugin on slot 1 (the old one is now i...

Re: MIDI notes recorded « in double » Topic is solved

Yes, it supports layers:

"Multiple keyboard zones for layering, splits and 4-note chords with a single key press"

So you'll need to turn off all zones except zone 1, as you've probably got two zones playing.

Re: Korg Classic MS-20 VST - Not Registering MIDI/Sound in Logic

The MS20 plugin has worked fine for me in Logic since it was released. As mentioned above, if you are trying to load and play the "FX" version of the plugin, you're doing it wrong, as this is not an instrument, it's the audio plugin version which is designed to process audio signals. If yo...

Re: Importing old Camelsound Alchemy libraries in Alchemy ?

It's not working. Are you sure I just need to drop my old "Camel Audio" folder (containing presets and samples) in Library/Applications Support ? You don't need to move them at all. Logic's Alchemy reads the locations where the previous content is stored, as I state above. Your presets ar...

Re: Importing old Camelsound Alchemy libraries in Alchemy ?

But the old V1 presets won't show up in Logic Alchemy preset tab. Make sure "Legacy Content" is ticked in the Alchemy preset browser menus, and if Alchemy doesn't refresh the library itself, run a manual refresh to rescan the preset folders, and they should show up - you have the legacy c...

Re: My Logic X 10.4 projects are interrupted w window showing " ERROR WHILE TRYING TO SYNC AUDIO & MIDI" Someone please

It looks like you're overloading one core of your processor, so try to track down which track is causing this - you might need to split out the processing if one core cannot process all the plugins on one track. Try selecting a track with no audio plugins if it's the currently selected track being p...

Re: My Logic X 10.4 projects are interrupted w window showing " ERROR WHILE TRYING TO SYNC AUDIO & MIDI" Someone please

If you're trying to force multiple streams of audio to and from each UAD plugin, plus the audio to and from the audio interface, *and* all the audio files from your drive, both audio tracks, and streaming sampler voices, over one TB connection, you may be asking too much of it. What does your CPU me...

Re: EXS24 "save" confusion

I think we should save the files for most compatibility in both Factory and User content. No, you should absolutely not save user content within Factory content. It's separated like this for good reasons. I just wanted a single workflow for both so I don't have to think differently based on it bein...

Re: EXS24 "save" confusion

Yes, it's always been a confusing implemention, imo. (I haven't gone through your findings above in detail, but I'm pretty familiar with the EXS's foibles...) When editing a sampler instrument in Logic, you really want to save it to disk, and then reload it into the EXS24 from that disk file, for pr...

Re: EXS24 voices affect CPU?

I would assume that in that situation, the pitch, bend, etc, would be applied to everything at the same time, almost like grouping tracks and sending them to an aux and using only one compressor. That’s what I would assume, but I have no idea how things work under the hood... No, voices always need...

Re: EXS24 voices affect CPU?

The EXS24 is pretty light on CPU, always has been - it was designed to be quite CPU light even on machines in the Logic 4.x days in the early 2000s when it was introduced. It's a bit heavier if the filter is turned on, as you now have a more CPU-heavy component that needs to be calculated for each v...

Re: Generating an IR from a plugin

Logic comes with an Impulse Response Utility for creating impulses - it's inside the Logic app package, and you can use that to generate a sweep to run through your plugin and deconvolve the results into an impulse response you can use in Space Designer. You can open the IR utility from the menu in ...
