Logic pro x disk too slow free. Avoid system overloads in Logic Pro
Aug 24, · Right-click on that directory and create an Alias of it. Go to the existing project directory parent folder in Finder (should be Music) Rename the Logic folder to Logic_old (or something like that) Move the alias from the external drive to the Music folder (the only Logic “folder” is now an alias). Oct 29, · “Disk is too slow or system overload” I´m sorry to bring up this topic since it´s been dealt with numerous times before. On this forum as well as on many other. Crazy thing is; while many are familiar with this message only some of us get them to a degree where it´s utterly impossible to have any.

Do you know how big your disk is, and how much free space you have on it? play “x” amount of information fine until i add to it another track with too. › system-overloads. Hi, I have Terabytes on my system drive and Terabytes free on my other drive which is only for audio. So everything I record and all related files are.

Could be disk space. I’ve tried that in the past, but reverted back to internal as I had disk io issues. Especially when jumping from one section to another. Silly question, are you running in 64bit mode? I’ve got the same spec as you, except mine is I’ve duplicated what you are running, and I’m getting no issues. I’m able to triple the tracks plus some. Only difference, I’m running off the internal hard drive. I’ve easily ran that many tracks with my internal drive alone. Seems like reinstalling logic could possibly sort out this issue.
Especially since its not happening with other programs. Sent from my SPH-L Simon Morrison. Also, as free space on system drive shrinks, so does system performance. Thanks for all the replys guys.
I bought a iMac 4ghz with fusion drive refurbished direct from apple and had nothing but issues with it. That was the only Mac I have ever returned for a refund. Get one of these and use it for the projects you’re actively working on. Use the traditional hard disk for backups. No need to overpay for Thunderbolt. My guess is Mojave is the culprit. Logic 9 was stable on everything I run Logic X on a i7 2. Every once in a while I’ll get that message.
It happens in playback, not recording, so I just click it and it rocks on with no further stops. Check your buffer size in logic as well. Try raising it and see if the problem persists. Tried an orico external usb but it was very slow. No advantage. I had two dvd burners in mine. The bottom one was sata. Removed that by taking off the side and pulling the cd rack out. That connection allowed very fast read and write times. About 3x faster than the 3. My Pro Tools was always giving me cpu overload errors and I had fairly fast rpm drives.
Since I’ve moved my session audio files to the ssd I haven’t had one cpu overload during playback. I have read that Logic does this the first time a new instrument or region is introduced because it hasn’t had a chance to load it into the memory yet. Every time I got an error I’d save, and relaunch, so perhaps this explains why I haven’t been able to move past it, because I haven’t really given Logic a chance to run through the piece more than once or twice, before closing it and starting over.
Sep 3, AM. Hi Pancenter, I was under the impression that a larger buffer size increases performance but introduces latency. As I’m not experiencing any latency but am experiencing frequent errors I thought I’d put it up to to see if that changed anything, but it didn’t. I was still getting the errors with a lower buffer size though. As I mentioned earlier I’m not using Space Designer or any other plug-ins. It’s quite bizarre.
Going to have another bash today and see if it’s magically resolved itself over night. You’re correct but it does depend on the drivers for the audio hardware, occasionally a smaller buffer is more efficient.. The Focusrite is plugged directly into a USB port correct, not a hub? What other active USB devices besides keyboard mouse do you have plugged in? Also what sample rate are you using? Yeah I can’t understand it.
To be honest it could well be related to the inteface as I had no problems when I was using my MBox 2 with it. The only reason I changed was so I could get something more up to date which would work nicely with Logic! The interface is plugged directly into the mac pro. I also have an iLok an iSight camera, my cinema display, a printer and the apple keyboard using the other ports and the session is 24Bit I was on a project deadline, and returned it and went back to my FW Duet ver 1 and everything worked in both Logic and Pro Tools.
I really liked the interface and “check up” on driver development occationally. If your project does include automation, choose the option that includes only the parameters you’re automating. Projects with higher sample rates create larger audio files, which can increase the load on the CPU and disk.
Plug-ins also require more CPU power to process audio files at higher sample rates. When choosing the sample rate for your project, balance the considerations of audio quality, the anticipated format of the final product, and the performance of your Mac. If disk activity is causing system overload alerts, try choosing lower sample rates for your projects. When using CPU-intensive effect plug-ins such as reverbs and delays, you can reduce the load on the CPU by using send effects.
Send effects let you use a single plug-in to process signals from multiple channels. Avoid inserting effect plug-ins on individual tracks in a project. You can also optimize Alchemy for improved performance.
Logic ‘Disk Slow’ – Pulling my hair out!!! –
No automation used. Files are Is it better to have an internal or external SSD? Or switching DAWS? I don’t use Logic, but my understanding is that MacOS What is your Mac and drive situation now?
This is hard if you have a sealed iMac. I have a Mid Mac tower. Currently have a drive for my samples, etc, one for my logic files and then one for OS and everything else. I’m a failed musician, not a tech person so I just want to make sure I understand what’s been said. How much free space on your system drive? Committing all ‘highly active’ drives to SSD of any sort is a good thing.
Use the spinning HDD’s for backup and bulk storage. Thanks for all the replies. Will do some research and see what the best options are. So I just added an ssd to my aging mac pro tower. I am running in 64bit – Yes. Journaling has been disabled – I have about 38GB free on the system drive – Yes. I’m using Spotlight has not been disable will this make a big diff? I guess I should begin with freeing up some space on the system disk and also trying to the run the same session of the internal drive and see if I have the same issues.
Also could anyone else confirm if reinstalling Logic could possibly help with this issue in anyway? I had issues with a western digital green, but went with the black and all is awesome. Still using a wd that cam with my mac for the osx :p. Anytime you have issues back up! I didnt and had similar issues and in two days lost everything : Also make sure to turn journaling off in your secondary Journaling has been disabled – I have about 38GB free on the system drive.
You’ll never have this problem with disk cache in pro tools. Thank you so much for comprehensive post Valis! Sice my drive were auto indexed the first time I connected them, is there anything else that I need to to do to completely remove indexing on my ext drives? SSD Hard Drive. A Fak. Logic specifically uses Spotlight to index the apple loops library so disabling spotlight on all volumes is not recommended for Logic to begin with, not to mention that not being able to search the boot volume has other workflow implications as well.
Your main BOOT drive still needs to be indexed, it’s just your project drives that should not be it’s unnecessary overhead. Moving Logic’s loops would have little impact for me as I only audition them from my boot volume, assets get imported into my project folders when they’re brought into a Logic project so that everything is archived together and so things aren’t run off the boot volume.
This is user controllable for loops content. The main issue there is just the amount of space they take versus what you might actually use.
Yes I have ran that many tracks from my system drive but I definitely wouldn’t recommend. It handled fine. It’s been a while but from what I understand you shouldn’t have to reinstall all of logic. Just the main components.
Sounds like you found the culprit! System overload alerts can appear when any of these meters peak. You can use this information to make adjustments to your project or your system configuration.
If you’re recording audio and not software instruments, you can monitor your audio directly from the source. If your project doesn’t include automation, or the automation doesn’t need to be sample accurate, you can reduce the CPU load by turning off Sample Accurate Automation.
If your project does include automation, choose the option that includes only the parameters you’re automating. Projects with higher sample rates create larger audio files, which can increase the load on the CPU and disk. Plug-ins also require more CPU power to process audio files at higher sample rates.

Make sure your Mac has the maximum amount of RAM, especially if your projects usually include many plug-ins or multiple instances of the EXS24 sampler. Save projects with high track counts to a dedicated storage device such as an external USB-C hard drive or an external solid-state drive SSD instead of saving projects to the system drive of your Mac.
