Projects sometimes opening, sometimes not, no consistency


Recommended Posts



I addressed the Forum with a similar question several months ago, but the problems have persisted and I thought maybe some new eyes might be reading...


Logic is acting very inconsistent, and sometimes refuses to open a project. It also basically crashes the computer by making the Finder unresponsive. In one scenario, I might try to open a project, and it will hang at a certain point. If I force quit, then try to open Logic again, it refuses, just bounces in the Dock. Then, force quitting again, I may find that I am unable to unmount external volumes, or restart, or do a shutdown, because the Finder has stopped responding as well. Can anybody shed any light on this? I am running 10.3.1 in Mac 10.11.6, on a late 2011 iMac running 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16 gb RAM. I have had the problem for some time, as I said, but it seems to have accelerated since I upgraded from 10.3.0 to 10.3.1, though I can't be sure of that.


Might it be helpful to trash the preference file com.apple.logic10.plist? If I did that, would it be regenerated on the next attempt at startup as happens in other applications? And does anybody think my problem sounds like corruption that might have been introduced into the preferences? 


I'd appreciate any insight, because now it is driving me nuts, and as of today I am not able to get my current project open at all. Thanks!

I am continuing to have these problems. I have been advised elsewhere to uninstall and reinstall LPX. Does anyone here have any opinion about that? And if people are favorable to the idea, is there a resource where I can find how to do it? In the absence of an uninstaller, I fear it's a "DIY" kind of thing... I have seen websites that offer advice, but they seem to be of the "clean your Mac completely now!" variety and I am suspicious of them. Also, would an uninstall and reinstall mean having to do the same with all the many gbs of additional content? Jeez, I hope this isn't the case... Anyway, ideas would be VERY welcome, thanks!
