Cleaning up the Mac for maximum Logic Power


Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

I switched to Mac since 6 months to enjoy Logic, Mainstage etc. I am still enjoying every moment with it.

 

What I notice that (maybe becasue software changes in the automatic updates) my Mac is becoming a bit slower (HD has still got plenty of space left)

 

My question is: Is there a program available that I can use to clean up temporary files, etc?. Not necessarily freeware

 

Regards

Mac OS X automatically cleans temporary files and clears cache files at night. Just leave you mac on at night and OS X will take care of it, you don't need 3rd party apps.

 

If you absolutely must turn off your computer at night, you can get Onyx. Personally, I don't use it.

 

However, I don't think that's the reason your mac is getting slow. How about your hard drive? How big is your system drive, and how much space is there left available? What kind of system are we talking about anyway? --> http://www.logicprohelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=26343

 

PS: in computer technology, MAC is something very different from Mac. I've edited your post to replace "MAC" with "Mac".

There are a few downloadable tools to help with basic maintenance. Such as running Apple clean up scripts without having to leave computer on or running them manually from a terminal window. The tool I use is called Onyx and it let you do lots of maintenance tasks and OS X customizations without living in the terminal window.

There are others, but I have had good luck with Onyx.
