Hi All
My rig's been performing seamlessly for ages...... then I go and buy an iPhone, upgrade to the latest version of iTunes and... oh no!... the above message when loading core audio.
I've tried launching while holding down ctrl to disable ca driver, then scanning AUs etc, even pulling suspect plugs out of the library/audio/components folder, trashing prefs..... I'm at my wits end.
Somebody please help... I've got an important mix to do and facing re-installing everything gives me the shakes!

My rig:- Logic Pro 7.2.3 on G5 dual 2G with 3.5gB RAM, Tascam FW1884+3x FE-8
G5 dual2gig, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

    I have the same as you and it crashes all the time.

    I have EWQLSO Gold XP, Logic Pro 7.2.3, OSX 10.4.1 with 5.5 GB Ram and after every track or two, it crashes.

    What's the deal? Help.

    Mine crashes when I save half the time on Logic 10.4.10. And it hardly ever saves any of my pre-settings. Is 10.4.10 purposefully bad so that we have to buy the newest Leopard 10.5 whatever animal is out now?

    Hi,

    I do think it is the Core Audio.

    I do think you should go back to Mac OSX 10.4.8, since that's the last real known working OS version.

    It's kinda sad, but that should get it to work. Don't forget to:

    1. BACKUP. Backup EVERYTHING. And I do mean everything....

    2. Do a CLEAN INSTALL. Macs like this, they become friendly after one of these. It's like a lobotomy, but better.

    3. Go and Install ONE BY ONE, your applications, starting with :

    1. Any audio device you will be using with Logic.

    2. Logic itself.

    3. Open and TEST Logic BEFORE installing ANY plug-ins.

    4. Plug-Ins. And do them one by one, and test them FIRST. Don't go and install 50 plug-ins, only fo wonder later which one is crashing the system.

    5. Enjoy your now-functioning computer.

    6. TURN OFF AUTO-UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or face the consequences...like you are doing right now.

    7. Wait a while to make SURE this now works as it did before.

    8. Then, and only then, consider upgrading iTunes so you can sync your iPhone. Unless the iPhone is more important than runnign Logic, which of course cannot possibly be the case, as Logic RULES!!!!!

    Well, that just about does it for me, I hope you have a great ThanksGiving day weekend.

    Cheers

    10.4.9 is also safe.
