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: Cheapest machine that can run Logic Pro X in 2021

I use a Thunderbolt dock for the "studio" tons of ports, cascaded USB hubs. I have a smaller dock to take on the road (2 USB-C, 2 USB3, HDMI, Ethernet, SD card, microSD, built-in USB-C cable)

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...

Re: A Couple beginner problems;

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...

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

NB I have successfully run Logic projects on 2011 MacBook Airs, 2016 MacBooks, and various other "underpowered" machines. Any of them will do something useful, just depends on your requirements. I bought my first MacBook after "demoing" Logic from a USB stick on a USB-C port in 2...

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

The M1 is the performance leader in the home market - performance wise - no doubt. It isn't going to be a few years. Their performance over the years is always going to be better than the 2020 variants of Intel processors. As far as doing the task you want to do now - OK - get a low-end Intel i3, sa...

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

I was able to run LPX on my 2013 machines just fine. My 2014 MacBook Pro had a battery go bad. Time for a new machine. New machines available - Intel i3 low-end MBA. Apple M1 low-end MBA. Intel i3 at $700-800. M1 at $999-1100. I don't see where there is a choice if you are planning for the future. I...

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

Short answer/question - what *is* your budget for the machine? Buying an Intel MacBook Air is (in my opinion) a very bad idea. Very bad. Logic is optimized for M1. Any version of the M1 MacBook Air will outperform any Intel laptop that is even close to your budget. Your concerns seem to point at thi...

Re: Accessing the complete library at any moment Topic is solved

Press the TAB key until you see the Library section outlined in blue (it has focus now). The arrow keys *should* work at this point. If they don't try placing the cursor at the bottom of the Library window, positioned on the (possibly hidden) scrollbar and try moving it - click/drag with mouse, swip...

Re: Internal Vs External Workflow

The Fusion drive in a 2019 iMac certainly could be the problem. The early Fusion drive in the 2013 iMac (I had one) had a 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. The 2019 1TB Fusion drive (as far as I can tell) is a 32GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. That would almost guarantee that "application I/O" would wind up ...
