I had once a similar issue (not with Logic files). Check if it is a "local snapshot", see e.g. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questio ... ying-trash

Re: Moving projects and losing hard drive space?

By the way, all my projects and saved as packages with all the additional components saved within the project. If you only check audio files, and not every component when you save, your projects should be much smaller and not have the bloating issue. Interesting thanks for the info! Will this affec...

Re: Moving projects and losing hard drive space?

I just copied and pasted the Logic folder. Open the individual projects, open the Project Audio Browser, and double-check the location of each audio file. Thanks David, I opened a few projects to check this, all the audio was located inside the project package on the new external drive. There are a...

Moving projects and losing hard drive space?

Hey guys, So to make room on my Mac I purchased an external drive to store my Logic projects on. I've moved then deleted my Logic folder containing all my projects from my Mac. This folder is 513 GB, however after deleting it, my Mac only has 346 GB free space? I originally had about 30 GB of space,...

It's also possible that another 3rd party plugin is having a conflict with Play. Did you add something else prior to your difficulties with Play?


Yeah have added quite number of new 3rd party plug-ins recently.

Re: Auvaltool quit unexpectedly when validating plug-in? Topic is solved

So I finally resolved this issue by re-installing the software after deleting all the backend components (not sure the technical term) fully first. In case anyone ever has the same problem and finds this thread, I'll list below the files I deleted before re-installing: - Macintosh HD > Library > App...

Auvaltool quit unexpectedly when validating plug-in? Topic is solved

Hey guys, I'm trying to reinstall 'Play' after having some issues with it recently. When I open Logic and try to validate the plug-in in Plug-in Manager, I get the following error message: 'auvaltool quit unexpectedly while using the Play plug-in.' Any ideas what the problem is here/how to resolve i...

Re: Project won't open, and previous versions won't open either? Topic is solved

Thanks for your help David. I finally managed to isolate the offending plug-in, not much fun in project with 300 tracks! :lol: Turns out it was the East West PLAY engine, am only using a single instance in the session but have tested it in a new project as well and it instantly crashes Logic when I ...

Re: Project won't open, and previous versions won't open either? Topic is solved

Even after you close the Preferences window? Are those plug-ins used for playback? Ok sorry my fault I think, I originally opened the project while holding control to turn the core audio off but this seems to have caused the problem. I restarted logic with a different project and turned core audio ...

No need to close and reopen. Select Core Audio (enabled) and either click Apply or close the Preferences window. It should work. Try playing back your project?


Ok yeah sorry playback works but all 3rd party plug-ins remain off (they have '!' marks over them).

Re: Project won't open, and previous versions won't open either? Topic is solved

It could be, you have to run some tests with different combinations of 3rd party plug-ins disabled until you find the cullprit(s). Ok thanks, to re-enable Core Audio do you have to close and reopen the project each time? I tried just selecting the box in preferences in and then clicking apply but d...

Re: Project won't open, and previous versions won't open either? Topic is solved

Open Logic, choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Audio and disable Core Audio. Now try to open your project. If it opens, then you can save it as a copy (to troubleshoot) and start removing 3rd party plug-ins, then re-enabled Core Audio. Thanks David, yes it opens with Core Audio disabled. Is the issue...

Project won't open, and previous versions won't open either? Topic is solved

Hey guys, So when I try to open my project Logic crashes during loading the plug-ins. So I tried to open the previous version of the project (I save it as a new version at the end of each day) but that won't load either? How can this be? I could open the previous version yesterday fine and it hasn't...

Re: Internal vs external SSD for Logic Projects? Topic is solved

Time Machine will backup from external drives if you want it to. I assume that you use a separate drive for Time Machine backups. You need to go to the Time Machine preferences and check the exclusion settings - click the Options button. You will probably see your external drives in the list of exc...

Re: Internal vs external SSD for Logic Projects? Topic is solved

That’s what I was thinking - it’s not quite as easy as the backup isn’t done automatically. How about storing completed projects externally and only keeping your current projects internally? Then keep the automatic Time Machine backup. That should sort out both of the points David mentioned and als...

I assume you back up. Always back up.

I save everything on internal and back up to external. I don’t know how easy it is to back up what’s already on an external drive.


Yes I use time machine, I'll probably need to back manually from now on I suppose which is a bit annoying.
