Fans spinning: two part question

Recommended Posts

Logic runs heavy and makes my fans spin whenever I record, its there a way to make that stop? (using macbook pro retina)

Second part is, if I record without the computer being plugged in, the fans wont spin, but there is lag on the recording, its not in sync with the song, whats ups with that?




Logic Pro X 10.0.4

• OS 10.9

• Macbook Pro Retina

• 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7

• Memory 16GB

• Audio interface - Built in audio usually and sometimes I use my Duet, but don’t have mic yet

• M-Audio Radium 64

Thanks for adding the info to your signature. It's helpful.


Do you get the problem with the fans as soon as you start recording audio? Even if you do that in a new empty project?


Not sure what to say about your second question as I've never recorded with my Macbook Pro while running on battery power.

ok so for the second part of this question (which by the way I found what might be a work around for the first part "smc fan control" )


the delay in recording.


I am going to upload the file, if someone has time to look at it.


I think it is file specific,because I tried in a new file and problem is gone.


But maybe someone can figure out why there is a delay in the recording on this file, I would like to know.


I have a feeling it has something to do with the beat mapping I did, but not sure.


thanks in advance, I really appreciate it!!
