Okay.. so this is a different issue to the iMac and FD issue that so many people are reporting.....because those with the FD issue have problems with just using internal Audio... as well as an external AI..
Therefore, do the observation tests I suggested and in particular watch out for if it happens after your screen and/or Mac goes to sleep.... Try changing the energy settings temporarily so nothing goes to sleep... (just set it to never on both sliders) and see if that fixes it..
Otherwise, just keep a careful note of what you do just before it happens.. and again, see if there is any pattern...
....and test when nothing else is running.. other than Finder and whichever app you are using when it occurs, like just iTunes or just Logic.
I wish I could say the same. Mavericks on a 2010 iMac with NI Komplete 9, and I am having a number of issues. Kontakt 5 has been crashing on a fairly regular basis with heap corruption errors, LPX beat mapping isn't working for me more than half of the time (didn't experience any problem with same prior to Mavericks), and LPX itself is crashing occasionally as well (e.g., sometimes when I close a project).
I should have waited before doing the upgrade. Lesson learned ... now I can only hope that these companies eventually address these issues so that I can get my studio back.
Other system details: Apogee Duet 2 with the new 10.9 driver, Mackie MCU Pro control surface, Novation Impulse 61 controller (but without the Automap software), Akai MPD32.
Hey Art, Hi All,
Just a bit of an update with my Motu issues.
Have been in touch with Tech Support who are amazing at Motu! Unfortunately they haven't been able to re-create my issue of audio loss through an external interface, but they did just mention that another customer of theirs has got the issue! The only difference they think at this moment throughout their testing is that this may have something to do with the Haswell generation of Intel processors.
Sorry to hear about your issues, that's a very impressive and expensive piece of software not working for you and I can really empathise!
It does seem that there is an issue with Mavericks concerning it's own hardware and 3rd party HW/SW
Hey guys, im getting this problem when opening up old sessions.
i just got the new retina MBP w/mavericks
logic is looking in the root insert list rather then in the audio units folder for my third party plugins
all of the plugins are installed and working in the AU manager its just that logic keeps looking in the wrong spot
when i replace the crossed out plugins with the same plug in all the settings go to the default values which is not usable...
anybody have an idea of whats happening?
this is killing me!!
Hi Art...first of all thanks for taking the time to post.
I unfortunately upgraded to Mavericks without reading the warning first and it's been a nightmare. Logic 9 isn't working at all well (experiencing major hangups and have lost multi monitor support) so I want to go back to using 10.8.5 somehow.
I just learned that Super Duper doesn't keep dated clones, only the latest so I overwrote post Mavericks Doh!
Wish I had read your post beofre.
I got Logic X a day or two after it came out and put it on my MBP Retina. Installation was pain free with none of the content download issues that others have experienced. It's been running well on that machine with an Apogee Duet, UAD2 Satellite and LaCie Thunderbolt drive. I've had a few crashes but stability-wise, I'm pretty happy with it. The auto save feature is an excellent new addition and works as expected when the rare crash does occur.
I waited a while longer to upgrade my studio machine, an older MacPro tower. Again, no problems running it with two UAD cards, a pair of Metric Halo 2882 interfaces and a Raptor 10k RPM drive. On the studio machine, I record 16 - 24 tracks at a time with the buffers at 64. (I feed the digital headphone system via software monitoring over aux sends like a traditional analog set-up.) Again, mostly problem free, except for some audio glitches while scrolling during playback, as some others have reported. No clipping during mixing with larger buffer settings.
Both machines upgraded to Mavericks with no problems.
Thankful to be among the lucky ones this time around.
Maybe before I allowed all the ASSumptions to be made, I should have mentioned that I backed up the downloaded it to a cd (DVD) in the event my system crashed, which a previous update caused data loss, therefore, I tried to reinstall it with the disc...
Since the post of my origianl question, I have reinstalled the software from my "purchase history..."
So, keep your ASSUming finger pointing self righteous name calling ***** calm...
