Hi again all,
I'm still having exactly this problem. I am using Logic 9, not Logic 8, but have started having this problem since installing Snow Leopard 10.6.1.
In a nutshell, I can't quit Logic, it freezes when I choose quit, and I then have to force quit.
Does anyone have any suggestions as a starting point for dealing with this issue?
I'm getting quite concerned at this point, as the update to Logic 9.0.2 didn't resolve the problem...
Hi again guys,
Following my post above, is there anything I (or Daz, who started this thread) can provide by way of logs or info (from the Activity Monitor, for example?) that might help some of the more technical guys on this forum to make sense on what specifically is causing this hanging behaviour on quitting?
Thanks heaps guys, would love any clues or help!
Thanks for the update!
I had already tried saving / closing the project and then quitting as a separate action - still getting the freeze on quit though!
Strangely though, sometimes quit DOES work. Usually if I just open and play a session, perhaps record one part and then save and quit.
So perhaps see how you go over the next day or so, you might find quitting still fails on occasion.
Hope it's all solved for you though, that would be great!
Hi Mike, still not heard anything from the Logic Pro Forum so it must be a case for waiting for an update or something. Like i say, it works the way I posted but its not right, especially for you Logic 9 users!
Anyway, anymore news & i'll continue this thread mate and also hope that someone may have the answer to this thread
I have the exact same problem, and closing the session before quitting gives only an intermittent solution. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Could it be a Snow Leopard problem? Funnily enough it's been happening only in the past few days....some time as the first post of this thread. I hope they fix it soon. Maybe Logic 9 is the solution?
I've just gone from 10.5.8 to 10.6.1 this weekend.
I too have the exactly the same issue with 8.02.
It doesn't matter which order I shut down, either project first then quit Logic or just quit Logic, eventually I have to do a force quit of Logic.
I have Logic in the Dock and do it from there.
I assumed/hoped it was an 8.02 issue but now I see 9.02 users are having the same issue with 10.6.1.
It's not a show stopper but I hate things like this.
It makes me worry about what else could be going on in the background.
Looks like something in particular in my pre Snow Leopard Project is causing the issue.
If I create new projects in 8.02 I do not have to force quit.
The hard part is now working out what FX or instrument or whatever is causing it.
So far third party stuff I have like BFD2, Sonnox and Waves 7 seem ok.
So it looks like it will not be easy finding the culprit.
Strange as it may seem the culprit is the *Event Float window* !
I had it open when the Project in question was saved.
If I close the Event Float then save the project I can then close the project and then quit Logic without having to Force Quit Logic.
BUT if I just quit Logic with the Project open I still have to Force Quit.
This is 100% reproducible with this Project.
BFD2 seems to be the source.
If BFD2 is used then the Event Float window must be closed before closing a project.
As long as the Event Float is closed I can close the project then quit Logic without a force quit.
I can reproduce this 100% of the time with a new blank project.
All I have to do is introduce BFD2 and have the Event Float open.
How weird is that hey !!
I will post on FXpansion. forum.
I have been having issues with this whole "not quitting properly under 10.6.1", and I've just tried your theory to see if it applies to me...
I kept the BFD window open and tried to quit - quitting was fine.
Just to confirm... by the "event floar window", do you mean double-clicking on BFD's button in the channel strip, to open up the main BFD view (the one that shows the drum layout etc)?
If so, it seems that's a slightly different problem to what I'm having, as doing this didn't cause Logic not to quit properly (but some other things still do - haven't been able to establish a pattern as yet, which is driving me mad!).

In a word...no.
I mean the Event Float window in Logic.
I do not have Logic in front of me but in the arrange view I think you go Options> Event Float
It tells you everything you need to know about a selected region, like where it starts exactly , how long it is, if it is a mid region the velocity etc etc.
