Love Logic X, Hate 10.0.7
I loved switching from 9 to X. So many great features like fast track and the interface redesign helps me be more intuitive and working more efficiently. With the most recent update to 10.0.7 advertising it would take advantage of all 12 cores in my computer, I was excited.
However, after using the thing for a couple of weeks, I have run into so many bugs it makes it hard to work. I cannot move a track without it glitching and crashing. The track literally jitters when I move it and when I move my mouse the track moves all over the screen. It then hangs for about 20 seconds and then crashes. Then it usually crashes 3 times when I try and open projects. Last night I tried to move a Logic plugin (Channel EQ) up one slot on the Channel Strip and Logic crashed. I can’t move tracks and I can’t move plugins. This makes it near impossible to work and get things done. I pray they fix this soon, I’ve already missed a few deadlines due to the constant crashing. Between crash and reopen I’m averaging an hour worth of downtime-completely a waste of time
Buggy buggy buggy
I’ve been using Logic ever since it was known as Notator on the Atari. I’ve been using LP9 professionally on my Mac Pro 1,1 for years. Just upgraded to a mini (yes, it’s an upgrade) so I could run LPX and could not be more disappointed.
I waited till this recent version because I saw all the huge list of bug fixes. So silly me, I thought I was safe. And I would be if all I needed was Garageband features. But I need pro level features and expect them from logic.
So I won’t complain about the new UI even though I hate it. It’s features I need to work which don’t that has raised my ire. I cannot easily go to a specific location via timecode - a deal breaker for film work. If I change tempos in a project the entire temp list disappears. Markers do not work as expected - if I select a number of regions and use the function “create markers from regions” the new markers are offset by something, who knows what. And, opening and film and importing audio brings the audio in out of sync. I do the similar function in Pro Tools with the same files and they import properly.
I’ve been using logic too long to want to move to something else and I don’t want to use my old machine.. no 64 bit export audio to movie function in LP9 makes it a drag.
When these and other bugs are fixed I might start griping about the UI but until then I just want the necessary functions to work.
10.0.7 Incredibly Buggy
I want to love logic but I can't. I'm starting to wish I had bought ableton or some other DAW instead.
I updated to logic 10.0.7 and IMMEDIATELY began noticing more bugs than the previous version. For example copying and pasting audio regions in the track view doesn't work. the pasted region doesn't produce any sound and all other regions in the track are removed. When I went to rerecord a section I noticed the count in is in beats not bars. Those are just a couple. I'm sure I'll notice more the more I use it but honestly I don't want to use the program until they release something fixing things.
Sloppy coding Apple. Don't ship your products without testing them. New features don't mean anything if basic controls don't work and there are bugs everywhere.
