Logic Pro X v10.6.1 not saving or bouncing anything


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am having a nightmare with this software.


Previously it has been working completely fine but today after I finished my project and wanted to save it, then bounce it to mp3 it simply refused - no error message, but equally no save window (or save as). It sometimes freezes for a few seconds each time you preform this cycle, and yet nothing is saved. I have run a full search of my Mac drive (Mac mini Late 2014, 1.4Ghz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3, macOS Big Sur v11.2.3) to check whether the file had been saved elsewhere under an untitled format - and it had been saved, as "Untitled 4" but the file size was 331Kb - far too small for the amount of audio and midi in my project.


Things I have tried already (with no success):

  • deleting preferences
    disabling "core audio"
    reorganising memory through the project information window
    copying whole project across to a new project and trying to do the same


I am extremely limited by my situation, since I really do not want to lose the project I have been working on for 6+ hours - restarting, deleting, reinstalling are unfortunately not options for me.


The software is not:

  • saving
    saving as
    saving as template
    doing anything that requires any type of writing to files


Has anyone seen something like this before? I would be beyond grateful if anyone has a solution that involves even just bouncing the song to mp3, and losing the logicx file.


Note: I can play the project, and make changes - just no writing so files or bouncing as mp3 or other file types.

Apologies for the late reply, shortly after, logic force updated and I lose all of my progress. I remade all of it, and problem solved. I have no idea what was going on, thank you all for the suggestions though.
