Hey everyone,

 

I know where the User & Logic 9.1.8 Project Templates are, except for the "Empty Logic Project Template". The one where you can start a NEW Project from the File/New... Template. Under every Collection there is the same "Empty Project" Template. Can this be modified, so that I can use that button.

 

I know I can create my own template and open that, but I would like to modify the one that is in all of Logic's templates under Explore, Compose, & Produce.

 

Anyone know?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S.

I'm assuming it may be in the Logic Application under "Show Contents", but where?

    Hi

     

    The short answer is no, the default "empty" template is embedded within the Application somewhere. Should you be able to get inside the package, find the correct data etc., you most likely need to re-do it every time you have a Logic software update.

     

    Simply make your own template, save it, and start your projects from that instead.

    I always save my start template under the name Autoload (in templates). Everytime  I start Logic this song is automaticly loaded.

    (of course you know that already?)

    When open File/New you can choose Autoload or another template. You can make a template as empty as you wish.

    I suppose I don't understand your problem?

    You can simply create your own default project and then in preferences/general/project handling choose and set the default project to your own default project so when yo click on new project, it opens that one up...

     

    See this part of the user guide for more info

     

    http://documentation.apple.com/en/logicpro/usermanual/index.html#chapter=44%26se ction=3%26tasks=true

     

    You can also then set the startup action in Logic to either do nothing so you can load an existing project or create a new project using your own default project... or have it automatically open your own default project every time you open Logic

     

    Again see the link above for more info...

     

    The choice is yours...

    Yes.. That is exactly how I have mine setup...

     

    The other way is to do exactly what you have done as far as creating your own default project and then choose "Create new project using Default template" in the startup action drop down menu...  and pressing the choose button to choose your own template. Now whenever you open Logic it will automatically open with your own 'default' template.

     

    However, there are times when i simply wish to open an existing project (or one of my other templates) rather than automatically open my default project which I then have to close and open the one I want..so I decided to set it up to 'do nothing' on start up and then do as you are doing now... which for me, gives me the maximum flexibility at start up.
