Scripter Plugin on an Instrument Track causes the Freeze "source only" to malfunction heavily

Thu May 06, 2021 10:36 am

I've reported this a dosen times now over years for years, Apple simply won't acknowledge this. This is tested and confirmed on three different computers and several versions of Logic (included the latest).

When using a Scripter plugin on an instrument track, if Freezing "source only", then you're up for some really odd things. Sometimes I get the recording from a completely different channels (say I frooze horn, instead if plays back trumpets). One time it created a Feedback-loop that nearly destroyed my hearing. Using the full freeze, there are no problems.

I've tried finding exactly what causes this, if it's connected to track stacks, or whatever. But I'm unable to pinpoint exactly what the problem is.

I've seen other people have the same problem. Freezing Source Only would be an excellent option to offload the hard drive when streaming large amount of samples, but still want to change stuff when mixing.

Can you attach a simple example of a project that exhibits the behavior?

Hello,
It's in my orchestral template which is way too large to attach here, but I'll see if I can do a reduced version with the same routing settings. I'll get back as soon as I can.

Thanks!

Yes, my idea is, save a copy of your template, then start removing a bunch of tracks at once to quickly reduce it to a file that has only one track exhibiting the issue.
