We're experiencing a problem when looping a range of the Timeline (green selection) in Cycle Mode (a song loop, not a sample loop). When it gets to the end of the selection, sometimes playback simply stops and it doesn't loop at all. Other times it loops a few times and then playback stops. There are no error messages, it just stops.

Is this a known bug? Can anyone help us troubleshoot this?

    Hi,

    Tweak the setting Preferences/Global/Cycle, that might do it.

    delete or move to the desktop logic preference that are located in you user/library/preferences folder

    Before remove preferences you must quit Logic

    Oh, and have you looked the CPU meter? Could be a simple overload. See if you have this setting:

    ... if not, turn it on and see if you get a warning. If you do, you just have too much VI's or AU's running.

    Hi Schmeck,

    Have you restarted Logic? Restarted the Mac?
    And what is you track-, VI- and effectload in this loop?

    regards, Erik.

    I do not know if that is the problem, it could be - you should try it - say, no preprocessing and smooth algorithm. See if it makes a difference. If not, put it back to its' original setting.

    regards, Erik.

    Okay, I am bogged down. NOW try trashing the Logic prefs - don't forget to export key commands first, if you have them customised.
    And check this:

    hope it helps any.

    seems to be that the project file is corrupted

    try to save as including asset in you internal drive...
    Avoid to use Firewire external disk!

    if the project comes from version 7 ... it should be corrupted

    start a New Logic 8 Empty Song and copy the files...
    also copy the channel strips settings!

    Good Luck
