Re: Dorky nit-pick question: default track icons?

I'd say try to set up your own autoloading template, with the tracks all assigned to the icons you need, and start you projects from that. Then all your customisations and tools and window layouts etc are set up exactly how you want them, in every project. That's the whole point of templates - to se...

Re: Low Microphone Volume

If you don't have enough gain on your mic or interface, then you can turn the other tracks down as a quick fix, at least while recording. You don't need tracks super loud anyway.

Re: Selecting in library sounds LogicPro Quits Instantly

"Apply to enclosed" applies permissions changes to the current item, but also goes recursively into all items and folders within that selected item and applies the permissions changes to all those many thousands of files. You were jumping the gun here in terms of my trying to help, because...

Re: Selecting in library sounds LogicPro Quits Instantly

Pick a patch that doesn't load in Logic. Find that patch in the finder, and inspect it's permissions (select it, and do a Get-Info (command + I) on that file). The permissions are displayed at the foot of the get info window. You can do a screen grab if you're not sure, but ultimately, you'll be wan...

Re: Serial Number LPX 10.6

None of Apples software these days, nor anything available on the AppStore has a serial number.

All that exists is a record of your purchase on Apple’s servers, and sometimes a copy of the licence agreement on Apple’s site.

There is no “number” for you to need.

Re: Selecting in library sounds LogicPro Quits Instantly

Your experience is not a typical one - I don't remember (offhand at least) seeing anyone with this issue in many years and multiple audio forums online. The bottom line is that we are all running software on our computers, and we could have all kinds of weird configs going on, often without realisin...

Re: Vintage B3 Organ on Logic 9 Topic is solved

No, you can't "install" these things, as they are not separate components, they are part of Logic. If you are using a cut down version of Logic which doesn't have these features, you can't selectively import those features into it from the full version - you'd need to actually use the full...

Re: Selecting in library sounds LogicPro Quits Instantly

So it works in a new user account? This sounds most likely a permissions problem then. Again, limiting this to a small subset of content to check and verify, check the permissions on that content, and check your user account has permissions to access that data. If not, fix the permissions and then s...

Re: Vintage B3 Organ on Logic 9 Topic is solved

Logic 9 comes with the EVB3, which i the same plugin (the GUi was given an overhaul for LPX).

So yes, the Organ instrument plugin is in LP9.

Re: Movie Run Time Changes When I Import to Logic

Frame rate issues? SMPTE timecode issues?

Check the frame rate of the video and that Logic is set to the same frame rate exactly, and also check the timecode start positions match up etc.

Re: Selecting in library sounds LogicPro Quits Instantly

It depends where the content is, but if Logic in the new user account doesn't see your previously installed content, Logic will download the default core content it requires to work (about 1GB) and you don't have to download anything else - enough to test with, and downloading 1GB or so shouldn't be...

There are two preference files, in your preferences folder: /Users/*you*/Library/Preferences/ com.apple.logic10.plist (Logic preferences) com.apple.logic.pro.cs (Logic Control Surface Preferences) As for what content to remove, start with some small self-contained content that you know crashes Logic...

Re: CPU spike on opening project

Yes, I wasn't saying it was the issue, just giving you an example why things don't always load up front. Like I say, you'll need to troubleshoot the project, have a look at your RAM use, what's different between this project and other projects, check if the project is corrupted, trying saving out ve...

Re: side chain does not work on any plugin

I can't see any audio running through that, but as myself and David says, you'll need to adjust your threshold and ratio accordingly for the sidechain signal level and the amount of reduction required, just as you would for using the compressor normally.
