Re: Certain Project Crashes Logic X Immediately

One of the things I sometimes try is to transplant bits of non-working projects into working empty projects, to see if I can identify what data Logic is choking on. ProjectData is the main data for the project though, and if this can't be parsed, there's very little chance of opening it. Sometimes t...

Re: Certain Project Crashes Logic X Immediately

No luck here, I tried a few secret handshake type things which have been known to rescue some things in the past, but it's the parsing of the ProjectData contents that fails, in all four copies of it in that project (even though they are not identical), in both 10.4.x and 10.5.x. I get the exact sam...

Re: Certain Project Crashes Logic X Immediately

Honestly, in this day and age it's still remarkably frustrating, and somewhat incredible, that a pro app like Logic can corrupt user data on a regular-ish basis (given all the numbers of times people here have had irretrievably corrupted projects) and not load a project at all. And certainly for an ...

Re: Certain Project Crashes Logic X Immediately

It might have been corrupted early on in it's life, so it's spread and possibly got worse over time. You could try zipping it up and uploading it here (no audio) - maybe an early version and a later version - and we can try to open it, but I don't expect much success... :(

Re: Certain Project Crashes Logic X Immediately

Likely the project is corrupted, which is why Logic crashes when trying to open it. This is nothing to do with plugins, this is Logic crashing hard when loading the project: Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID...

Re: Logic projects at 88.2k will only bounce to a 48k file on an external hard drive.

Yes, WAV supports whatever sample rates you need. mp3, being lossy compressed audio, is a completely different thing. You can bounce multiple formats all in one go - so if PCM is ticked and mp3 is also ticked, you'll be bouncing both an uncompressed WAV (at whatever PCM settings you've chosen) and a...

Re: Unable to open Logic, crashes on open due to plugin

Quit Logic, and move/delete the file: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic10.plist (that's the Library folder in your Home folder). Logic will create a fresh new set of default preferences next time it runs. Note - iZotope states on their website that RX does not yet work natively on ARM Macs, so m...

Re: Unable to open Logic, crashes on open due to plugin

You can turn off the audio engine in the prefs (or hold Control while starting Logic), then load your project, remove the plugin, and re-enable Core Audio.

(Or trash your prefs to forget Logic loading the last loaded project).

Are you running Logic in native mode, or under Rosetta?

Re: Logic crashing every project

If it's specific plugins always crashing, then yes, making sure those load would be the first thing to check.

However, if it's crashing on random different plugins each time, that suggests a different issue.

Re: 3rd Party Plugin factory presets database for Logic

Remember that in general the V5/6 *bundle* designations are different to the actual *instruments* - eg, the first first version of the Matrix 12 was in certain bundles, then they released a V2 of the Matrix 12, and that's in all the bundles since. As they haven't updated the Matrix 12 V2, I haven't ...

Re: Logic crashing every project

I tried disabling third-party plugins but it still crashes after trying to enable core audio. The plugin scan usually stops and crashes with Pro Q 3, Waves, and even with Chromaverb. I tried disabling those. I have a lot of stuff that is registered iLok license manager, such as. Soothe2, Soundtoys ...

"Upload" where?

Yes, you can save channel strip presets and/or Patches to save configurations of channels/plugins.

Re: Automating multiple tracks at once

if you don't want to use automation, just use the marquee tool to snip the regions with your selection, then use region gain to drop the cut out regions down by 6dB (or whatever).
