Re: Plugin / instrument name greyed out

It isn’t a VST it’s an AU component. Is it supported on Big Sur? Is it an M1 plugin or intel? Are you running Logic in Rosetta mode?

I get really weird things when running logic native using unsupported plugins. Far more reliable in Rosetta mode

Re: Changing the GUI of a Plug-In

I would start with making a Smart Controls interface for the plugin, mapping the parameters to knobs etc. Lots of different possibilities. You don't get a lot of control over legends for the knobs, but you can make a credible looking "box". If you need *lots* of buttons and knobs try "...

Re: Create automation points on Cycle Locators

Thanks! Simply dragging the automation curve is a nifty saving of steps.
I tried leaving my tools as Pointer/Marquee, selected the automation I wanted, did the Marquee selection and simply dragged down in the selection using the Pointer tool. Automation points showed up.

Super simple. Thanks David!

Re: Create automation points on Cycle Locators

Make sure the track and proper automation parameter are selected. Marquee select the cycle area. Click on the selected area to create a region. Issue the "Create 2 Track Automation Points At Region Borders" If you don't like having the extra regions simply select the track and join the reg...

Re: Bouce to selected track??

I wonder if Selection-based Processing will do what you need? Select a region. Selection-based processing. Click the Apply button. You wind up with a new audio file in the project browser, and the region is right there in place on your track. Don't enable any plug-ins so you get unprocessed audio. Y...

Re: Disabling and re enabling channel plugins

yes - screenshots - just like taking a picture of the gear in the rack, or the console itself. Every time I do live recordings I take a picture of the mixers (before AND after) for each set. Sometimes the band will twiddle a knob or two ;-)

Re: Saving Mix Scenes (What are the alternatives?)

The switch from one project alternative to another is, basically, loading a new project, but probably without having to load more audio (usually). My standard workflow for live performances consisted of 1+ hours of audio on 14 tracks. 6GB project. Each song was turned in to regions. I would mix the ...

Re: Open new project when starting logic [SOLVED]

Set Logic to do nothing on open. Use the dock contextual menu - control click - to choose a recent project to open. Works like a champ.

Re: Open Plugin-Menu without Mouse

Can Keyboard Maestro search for text in an open window? If you open the Library, search for "Bass", and click you should be positioned properly to use keyboard arrows to navigate.

clumsy, but might work.

Re: Can I work from a Logic file in iCloud Drive?

I have to chime in here. iCloud Drive files are entirely stored on your computer, in the iCloud Drive location which is somewhere on your Mac hard drive. When you read it, or write it, it happens to your local, internal drive. At some point in time the bits and bytes that comprise the files will be ...

Re: Cheapest machine that can run Logic Pro X in 2021

MacBook Air heat problems that "many" users have, are probably not M1 MBAs. The M1 MBA does CPU throttling to control heat when doing long renders. I can find no specific evidence of M1 MBA heat problems. I can certainly consider Intel MBA heat problems - my wife's 2020 Intel MBA lights up...

In the App Store you need to get to the screen that lists "Purchases". In 10.15+ you click on the user id at the bottom left. The "Purchased By" menu at the top right should allow you to select your father's AppleID. Scroll to where you see Logic and download. No idea what it loo...
