Logic crashing when trying to bounce

I have a very full project. It hasn't had any problems whatsoever thus far. However now that I'm almost done with the song, I'm trying to bounce a rough version and Logic is crashing immediately upon clicking OK in the bounce window😩 Any help would be appreciated. Thanks   249411942_ScreenShot2022-10-24at6_08_14AM.thumb.png.4e3b988e4c450e1179026e2abfe0f7e5.png

To make matters worse, I kept going back to the auto saved version when re-opening Logic, trying to bounce and failing several times, so this last time, I did not, I just clicked Saved instead of Auto Saved.. And it went back to the version saved three hours ago.. there are no more recent projects to revert back to, so it seems I have lost several hours of work. I haven't faced any issue this bad with Logic in a long time, and honestly I expect more from Logic.

Command-S is your friend. You can't work for hours and never save.

If Logic crashes because the mix is complex, you gotta be prepared. Save more often.

fisherking, Right, I thought auto-saved would have AUTOMATICALLY SAVED IT, which is why I didn't hit Command-S when the bounce and crash issue started repeatedly occuring. Yes, I rebooted it, and mp3 settings are normal and can be seen in the screenshot above. I was going to try a real-time bounce, but since the project has reverted back to the last manually saved version, it's bouncing just fine.

triplets, thank you sir. fair enough. 

So even if I Command-S frequently, How do you solve the issue of not being able to bounce when mixes get complex?

your screenshot shows the AIFF settings (altho you're not bouncing to AIFF, only mp3). click on MP3, and you'll see those settings.

auto-save should save at the moment of a crash, so always select that when you reopen a project. however, if it keeps crashing, something's probably corrupt... and you may have to revert to an eariler save.

if you're back in business (even if you need to re-do some work), maybe you won't have the same issue. 

i only do realtime bounces when some effect, or a sustain, for example, doesn't (for whatever reason) play properly in an offline bounce.

triplets, makes sense. i'll keep that in mind and do it from now on. thank you

 

fisherking, thanks. auto-save is great.. it saves your project so you can open back up to that point right before a crash, but it's not supposed to save an actual version of your project, as command-S does
