Re: Going from Rosetta to Native with Logic

I have been running Logic in Rosetta mode, but trying again to see what happens. KORG M1 seems to work just fine as a software instrument. Added some Waves - Scheps Omni Channel with an H-Delay included - no real issues. What I see as far as the system is concerned is the 'AUHostingCompatabilityServ...

Re: Deleting unused files

I do live band recordings like this - record each set as an individual set of files (typically an hour), start a new recording for the next set. It works for more than an hour, but I don't like trusting everything in a 2+ hour WAV file - just me. For each song I create a marker and and regions on ev...

Re: External SSD drive

I'm a member of the lower-cost SATA SSD drives + USB3 case. I use them for backups and longer term storage as well. At some point (when prices get better) I will be using an OWC Envoy Express enclosure (1500MB/s) and fast NvME SSD - a 2TB drive can hold everything that I use and need. Carry the driv...

Re: Adjusting height of mixer elements?

hmmm - db-Linear? I just watched the little display above the fader as I moved it and got the .1 increments, but I work in Exponential mode - anything below -30 dB is dead to me ;-) got me some gates ;-)

Re: Adjusting height of mixer elements?

The size of the fader does not change - only the scale - in db-Linear -60 to 0, exponential -30 to 0. When I use my trackpad to adjust the fader I see the increments at .1, no matter which version of the scale is by the meter. The steps on the scale are the levels, the fader adjusts from -infinity t...

Re: Not enough Thunderbolt 3 ports...help!!

7 USB-A devices (when using typical MIDI and audio gear is USB-2) is about 4 GBPS, plus an HDMI port running between 10 and 18 GBPS - so like maybe in some crazy world, 22GBPS constant. The TB3 port can do 40GBPS. That NvME SSD completely depends on the controller interface. For practical purposes o...

a half speed Thunderbolt port is not compromised in any way compared to a USB 3 port (or less)

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

USB hubs - I use an OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock in the studio - I can plug it in to either my iMac (Catalina) or the MBA (Big Sur) everything works. In the studio the MBA typically connects to an Anker 8-in-1 USB-C hub (powered) with an Ethernet port - that's the network connection. For on the road I use...

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

I have an M1 MacBook Air (I replaced an older MacBook Pro). All of my USB peripherals and interfaces work fine with the M1. Most of my third-party plugins and instruments work, but all of it happens with Logic in "Rosetta" mode. In emulation the MBA outperforms the old quad-i7 by a signifi...

Re: M1 Mac mini... Isn't great or what!!

NB the KORG Legacy apps (I use my M1 a lot) are Intel binaries, and I assume the plugin is as well. All should be good if you run Logic in Rosetta mode.

Re: Control surfaces?

My absolute favorite control surface is my iPhone. I run Logic Remote on it and can control the recording process over by my mics and instrument without having to push buttons on the computer. Beyond satisfying - makes things so easy.

Re: Removing Silence -- Performance?

Region-less. If there is a region the audio (even if super quiet) gets passed through the processing chain. No region? No processing.

Re: Still torn between M1 Air and Pro

My choice was simple - MacBook Air - no fans - that was always a hassle for me (noise) - the performance difference between the MBA and MBP is small, and my new MBA almost matches (or exceeds) my 8-core i9 - soooooo. MacBook Air for the "always quiet" win.

Re: CPU Constantly Overloading on M1 Mini

If your interface is "running through Rosetta" then you need to make Logic run in Rosetta mode. Any other choice will give you bad/bizarre behavior.

What interface is "running through Rosetta"?

all I ever do is leave room correction plugins on during a bounce - that makes for some weird sounds ;-)
