LP9 Too Many Groups In Audio Bin = Beachball
      #1072682 - 31/10/13 08:17 PM
Hello Friends,
I'm doing some sound editing for a video. Each scene is comprised of 3 or 4 mono audio files, which I have organized into groups. In other words, the audio files for each group are grouped to a folder in the audio bin. Well, it seems that I've gone a bridge too far, as Logic hangs whenever I try to make changes to any audio files, including moving them around in the arrange window, deleting the groups or deleting the files from the session. Any ideas on how to get out of this? I've tried numerous things including increasing my latency to 1024 samples, removing the video and markers, and cutting files one by one. I'm not using any plugins.

Logic Pro 9.1.8 64-bit | Mac Pro w/ 8GB RAM | Mountain Lion 10.8.5 | Apogee Ensemble

Thanks, Matt

Lower the amount of Undos for the Undo memory in the general preference, editing tab.

If you enable a large amount of undos, Logic will reserve memory for that use, may affect performance.

Every time you change anything it's recorded in the undo history.

Thanks for the undo history tip. I only have 30 levels of undo, so I don't think that's the problem. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the group folders in the audio bin. I've had this problem before, but not as severe. I see that in the activity app that Logic's CPU usage goes from about 20% to 199% after I try to make a change to anything in the audio bin. YIKES! That being said, I was able to copy and paste my scene markers for the video into a new project and re-edit the audio. Life goes on - without group folders

I have for the first time recently been presented with the "audio configuration is corrupted" error message.
This is brand new to me as opposed to "the 32 bit bridge has taken a personal dislike to me"
Now I do tend to always push my system right to it's limits.
It's a bit like that old adage, the more money you have the more you'll spend.
It is intensely frustrating to have repeated crashes on this project within Logic 9.
And a slight fear of the what if.......
I've deleted preferences, fade files etc.
And unfortunately not found the smoking gun to this issue.
However it is without doubt through my observations that the undo history is an implicit link to this problem.
And that this issue is probably a result of going beyond the limits of what Logic is comfortable with regarding memory allocation, whether that be plugin instanciation, samples loaded or the number of regions/ audio files and undo history events.
The removal of the audio configuration window which might potentially lead to a repair is dissapointing.
I don't discount a 3rd party conflict when dealing with the outer limits of my system.
I do wish however Apple could define a pre warning system, one which is realistic and not too overly pre-emptive.
I guess the work around is to not be so expansive with ones creative possibilities
I must say generally I have always used and loved Logic since the old Creator / Notator days

You can open a new project, IMPORT the project.

Then you can choose what elements you can bring in.

Refer to the online help for details.

More good advice, G-Dub. I ended up just copying and pasting the empty regions I was using to identify each scene into a new session. I used the create Markers from regions command and I was back up and running. I will not be using Group Folders in the future.
