Re: Save a copy as... awesome to save CPU Power?

I remember the old days with Cakewalk 8 and how I discovered that my MASSIVE 4 gb hard drive was slowly cluttered and filled with these clips. Cakewalks clean up function was far from perfect, wave files were stored in one big folder and with random naming so many times wrong stuff was deleted. That...

Re: Save a copy as... awesome to save CPU Power?

But... it is my understanding (I could be wrong though) that logic does not load unused audio files from the audio bin into ram and even reads audio files used in regions from the disk unless something like flex is enabled for that track (then loads into ram). Perhaps this has changed but if not, a...

Re: Save a copy as... awesome to save CPU Power?

And yes. The CPU doesn’t care about those clips. But ram usage and project load time is reduced

Re: Save a copy as... awesome to save CPU Power?

Just a side-note to this. I’m new to logic and not at the computer now, but as I recall there’s a clean up project function that basically clears your undo history and discards all the clips of old recordings made in your projects life time that is presently not in the region view. Other daws have s...

Re: big sur - 20 NOV - the GOOD NEWS (update)

And I haven’t had a drink since 20:09 yesterday evening and my bars where moving around ;-)

Anyway: the general conception is that Big Sur is safe to upgrade to?

Re: MacMini M1 Logic Benchmark results (strange)

Using my Mac Mini M1 for the past day or so, it's a great machine but honestly it's a bit of an ass around getting some stuff inline, especially when it comes to some obscure programs. if you only use Logic plugs and really well known plugins it's pretty good. But for audio work in general, especia...

Re: MacMini M1 Logic Benchmark results (strange)

This is crazy: KIAUiFoYPtQ He’s using loops to populate the many tracks. Don’t know if this should utilize ram or put pressure on the ssd. He’s just using the base model. Seems like it can just run anything that you can reasonably ask it to do, despite the 8 GB RAM. Now I need to keep remind my self...

Fast work flow for editing double tracked guitar

Hi First of all - I'm very new to logic. I've been using reaper for a decade and before that cakewalk. So I'm generally still struggling to find a good work flow for most things. Anyway here's the deal: I have a basic rock song where I want a double tracked rhythm guitar track panned left/right to g...

Re: Worth paying $200 to upgrade to 10.5?

I guess it’s not free if you have to buy a new video card to get Catalina/Mojave and thereby access to Logic 10.5. I have just payed for the top tier iMac to get that access (but the old 2011 iMac desperately needed replacement). I can’t say if it’s worth it. You’ll have to check out the list of new...

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

Thanks. Gonna wait a while until real people have done some real testing in Logic :-) just saw the OWC tear down of this thing and not a lot has been put into cooling of the CPU it seems. Also curious to see if some tear down will reveal that you could upgrade the CPU your self! I’m still debating w...

Re: New Intel iMac or wait for Apple Si?

And yes... I’m asking what you think. I do not expect facts. I guess only Apple has the facts and they’re not willing to share ;-) Edit: I’m no way near a pro so if I invest >2,000 $ in a mac I need it to last and be supported for many years. I’m unfortunately NOT in the “just go get a 7,000 $ Mac p...

New Intel iMac or wait for Apple Si?

What do you think? Me thinks: Apple silicon is exciting, but also uncertain both time wise and performance wise. I’m pretty sure the current chips will handle web browsing and email perfectly. But how about lots of tracks and plugins? With intel based you pretty much know what you will get on perfor...

Re: Logic Pro 11 Audio Units [Concept]

There is not going to be Logic 11. It will stay being 10 (X) as long Mac OS will be called 10 (X). maybe they are going from Mac OS X to Mac OS L once Mac OS 10.49 is replaced by Mac OS 10.50, at which point they may call it Mac OS L. More likely: the nexty Logics are going to be: 10.4.8 10.5.0 (ov...

Re: why add Stereo Spread when mastering?

That was the point I was trying to make. Wideners will only work for the 5% that listens on a perfect stereo set as you would during mixing.

So they’re made for the few and to make it sound impressive during mixing.

Re: why add Stereo Spread when mastering?

Another thing to remember: My guess is that 95% of the playbacks of a given song will be on either headphones, mono or some non-ideal stereo (listener might have a stereo setup but will not sit right between the speakers). I guess these wideners will only work for the last 5% that sits perfectly bet...
