Re: Advice on what to upgrade my computer for better perform

Awesome, thanks for the specific advice. So you'd recommend just 8 x 4 slots (32gb)?

I remember hearing once that there are ways to configure it that work better (don't use different types of RAM or different brands)? Not sure if there's any truth to that.

Advice on what to upgrade my computer for better performance

I use a lot of taxing software instruments (Omnisphere, East West, Kontakt). When I have large projects I often get the " System Overload" message. I try to bounce and freeze tracks as much as possible, but it seems that I may just need to upgrade my system a bit for better performance. So...

Re: Hotkey to nudge volume automation in track or region?

The gain parameter does work, is there a hotkey to nudge that up or down? I think in Final Cut the hot key nudged the gain up or down by +/- 3 db, pretty useful.

Hotkey to nudge volume automation in track or region?

There isn't a hotkey in Logic to nudge volume automation UP/Down for a region or even a track? I know Final Cut Pro and Pro Tools both have this, never been able to find it. When doing sound design I often need to adjust volume for several regions at once, wondering if there are any tricks to speed ...

Re: Hyper Draw Region Volume no longer in LPX?

Thanks Edgar! That's exactly what I needed. There isn't a way to adjust these MIDI draw volumes on multiple regions at once is there?

Hyper Draw Region Volume no longer in LPX?

I've used LP since '07 and I'm used to being able to hyper draw volume on each region for BOTH audio and MIDI files. Now it seems they changed it to MIDI Draw and it only works on MIDI regions? Am I wrong? Did they give it a new name? I'd love to be able to hyper draw volume directly on regions... (...

I have done the activity monitor sample, but I don't know computers well enough to recognize the computer jargon it gives me. I just updated to OS 10.5.7, performance seemed to increase some, it still gives me the occasional spinning wheel though (this makes me feel like it's definitely a software i...

Is everyone stumped? Is there anywhere I can go for support without having to pay a ton. My computer and software is out of date.

Is there a setting I can look at within Logic that will show what might be going on?

Are there settings I could change within the CoreAudio window?

Could it be a problem with my audio card/driver?

I just tested my RAM and it seems to be fine.

I'm just hitting spacebar, I tried clicking the stop button on the transport and I get the same thing. It's a little bit sporadic as well, it doesn't always happen and sometimes I have to wait longer than other times.

I'm not sure what else it could be...

I have some 3rd party AU plugins installed, but I'm not using them on the current project.

Usually they're at normal levels (depending on how intense the project is). Right now I'm working on a small project so the CPU and hard drive are at pretty low levels. I guess my question is, what is happening within Logic when you hit pause? Honestly, I think the problem is within Logic not my sys...

I actually cloned my old hard drive, so both are identical (both have the project and logic 8) They are both 1 TB (more than 870GB free) I checked and it is partitioned journal (extended) I reinstalled Logic a couple of times on the old drive and it didn't seem to change anything. Do you think it's ...

I do have two internal drives. One of them only runs at 5400 rpms though.

So run the song file from a different drive?

Spinning Wheel even on low-demand project, Please Help!

Hey, I've been getting a strange problem when I work on projects. I'll hit play and everything will be working fine, I have 8GB of ram so my processors can handle quite a load. The problem is when I pause the song, I get the spinning wheel of death. I get the spinning rainbow wheel for usually 30 se...
