    Logic Pro X not opening on Mojave 10.14.6

    Hello everyone, I'm having a problem with opening the Logic Pro X application on Mojave. No matter what I do, the application just won't open. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the application, deleting the "com.apple.logic10.plist", restarting my computer and nothing works. When I go into...

    Developers/Musicians using M1+ Macs

    Hey all, A lot of the focus around the M1 is on video/photo editing. However there aren't a huge number of reports on audio or software development. I'm going to refer to M1 here as the generation rather than the specific chip, so that'll encompass the Pro/Max/Ultra. My daily driver is a 2016...

    MBP for Logic X/Native Instruments

    Hi Everyone, Need some advice on the new MBP's. I currently have a 2015 13-inch (2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with 16GB Ram). I use the laptop for day-to-day tasks but the main reason I'm looking at the new MBP's is that I use my computer for heavy Logic X use (primarily with Native Instruments)...

    Logic Won't Update Even Though I Know It's Compatible

    Wasn't sure whether to put this in Pro Audio or here, but I went for here because I figure ultimately that's a Mac App Store issue, not an issue with Logic itself. So here's the thing… I have a Mac Pro 5,1 running Mojave, and Logic Pro X 10.4.8 running on it. I also have a MacBook Pro...

    MB Air M1 running Logic Pro

    I've been waiting for a new MB for a long time. I've been using my MacBook Pro 2011 for a while for general work but also use Logic Pro and, unsurprisingly, can't take it anymore. I'm not an intensive user of Logic, typically with only 10 tracks on the go and mainly the built in plug ins, with...

    MP All Models Use Logic-only MacPro for web development temporarily?

    I have a pretty high end MacPro that I use only for Logic Pro X. The theory is I don't ever want to install any software that might destabilize it. I use special audo interfaces, have gigs of samples, an internally installed copy protection dongle, etc. My other machine is a recent iMac I use to...

    macOS 11 Big Sur kills a lot of plugins

    Big Sur is a deal-breaker when it comes to Music Production especially if you use some legacy or free plugin that won't receive any update in the future. Most of my plugins were working as of beta 2 since it's the version number was still 10.16 except for those that were already crashing on...

So, I'm in a dilemma on which base MacBook 16" I should with the intention of using it mostly to work with Logic Pro and other DAWs, and doing some ocasional image and video editing (the latter won't be too, too much complex in terms of effects and workflow). With that in mind, I'm...

    Using Logic Pro X (MBP 2018)

    I just dl'd the trial for Logic Pro X. So far, it's running well. Def a lot of GB for sound files. I currently have a 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, Catalina OS (MBP 2018). I'm still learning the ropes of Audio Production. Are these specs sufficient enough for an external MIDI...

    2020 i5, 2015 i7 MBA benchmarks and comparisons using Logic Pro X

    I just bought a new MBA (i5/16GB/256). I ran some tests in Logic and Cinebench to compare it with my old Air, and thought some here might be interested in what I found. With the talk of throttling, and cooling limitations I wanted to see how it compares to the old Airs. If this new Air isn't...
