Re: Logic Pro X - What's new in 10.5

Fri May 22, 2020 11:31 am

Anybody else notice/frustrated with the new EQ controls (parametric)? The EQ is freaking awesome now, seems to have better resolution and flow, but for some reason, after I make an adjustment to the bottom half of the EQ (like for instance, dragging the width numbers on a given node, the mouse kinda "sticks" for like a 100 milliseconds and then lets go. What's annoying about this is that I like to very quickly stop and play using my space bar as I make adjustments. What sucks now is that it freezes the window for a split second and flashes white at me. I tried to explain that the best I could lol.

UPDATE:
So to make this more clear of what's happening: I can no longer press spacebar (to toggle play and pause) while I have my mouse click held down on one of the EQ nodes. Instead, the screen flashes white until I let go of the node. Was able to do this before 10.5. I know this isn't a big deal to some, but to me, it kinda is, because I'm kinda frantic when I work. LOL

I had some odd issues with sync and midi notes in the piano roll showing up in random places not on their assigned notes.
I trashed my preferences and - so far - those issues went away. I don't have a ton of custom settings so this isn't a huge thing for me.

BUT after I trashed my prefs, I noted some distinct changes to my interface that were NOT there before.
S and M on each channel have been replaced with a speaker icon and a headphone.
The mixer at the bottom is better aligned and the window default resize perfectly shows the fader/pan AND track name.
I'm certain there are more changes I haven't noticed yet, but I've found that trashing the preferences was an improvement.

Ahhh, nice! I may try this actually! I'm using a very old preference file. I also noticed that when I open new plugins, they keep snapping to the bottom right of the screen; some of them I can't even see the whole plugin window, until i drag it up. Maybe this will help that.

Okay I deleted my prefs and rebooted everything. Had to go through the whole menu to fix stuff, butttt, it appears to be working more stable now. Not sure about the display thing; I don't experience that problem anymore as I've moved up to an Ultrawide. As far the EQ thing, I've just accepted that it's probably not gonna change. Meh, oh well.

I'm still having MAJOR issues with Drum Machine Designer. When I try to perform from with my Arturia Keyboard or my Roland SPD-30, the Midi is writing about an 1/8th note late. I'm in LowLatency mode, restarted Core Audio, have no sample delay set, 128 is my buffer size. When I perform I hear everything in perfect sync but I see that the midi notes are not lining up on the beats. When I pay back, they are off grid by about an 1/8th note. Doesn't happen with other keyboard patches.

Anyone else?

I’m still surprised they haven’t added grid line showing through waveforms yet. Hopefully they add this simple but yet effective feature. They have it in the editor window why not in the main arrange window.

Have you sent Apple a feature request for that?
The more people that do, the more likely it is you'll see it in an update.

Check you plugin compensation settings under General I think


That's EXACTLY what it was. Depending on the instrument I need to with turn Plugin Compensation on or off, and turn Low Latency Mode on or off. It's a combination of those, no one setting seems to work globally. Thanks, been three days in the making!

Ha! No worries! Yeah, this one had me scratchin' my head a couple years ago. I noticed it happens with a couple of Logic's plugins. I don't use those anymore, so I mostly just keep it on "All" and have the plugin compensation for everything. Haven't had too many sync issues since though. Glad it worked for ya. A small note: if you have plugin compensation on, be careful when you're making stems that need to be accurate down to the sample; you might have to turn off plugin latency for exporting if you do that.

YES! I have always had advance preferences turned on for the past however many tears. Since I trashed my prefs it came up in the default.

Re: Logic Pro X - What's new in 10.5

Just my quick thoughts after 2 days of usage before going back to 10.4.4:

-It fixed the glitch of 10.4.5+ where it would crash whenever I tried to record in projects of 100+ MB. This was a glitch that a senior adviser literally said the technicians were "stumped" about.

-The editor doesn't take a super long time to open when I press E. This is an improvement.

-In the Flex editor, it defaults to snapping all the notes to the C major scale when you try to move them. This seems dumb. I had to turn this off every time I started working again.

-In projects over 100MB, it starts to take 4-5 seconds to save on my MacBook Pro Mid 2012 (16 GB RAM). One time Dr. Cleaner said I was up to 99% CPU. This is the main reason why I've switched back to 10.4.4 until I get a new laptop. I feel like 10.4.4 handles Flex better than all previous versions, although still not without maddening issues.
