Bus names

    I saw a Logic X tuitorial on youtube today and I noticed that the names of the effects each bus was sending to, were appearing in the channel strips in the send slot. All I get there is the bus number like "Bus 11" appearing to the left of the send knob. But on the video it said, Bricasti, Lexicon etc...

    Anyone know how to make this happen? It would be a real time saver.

    As CSeye points out this way they are named permanently which may be good for your autoload template but there may be times when a specific bus does not feed a specific output or processing.

    For this approach, if you open a new bus send on a channel strip, logic creates an aux fed by the bus. If you then name that aux strip, that name will also appear in the bus menu.

    This is a great tip! I never knew I/O window existed, so useful!

    Excellent point!
    Renaming in the I/O Labels does make them permanent.

    Renaming the aux affords more flexibility on a per Project basis.

    Do your I/O labels work correctly? I gave up using them because mine don't work as they used to in earlier Logic versions.

    I haven't noticed any issues with them. A typical set up would include sub-mix axes for drums, percussion, bass, guitars, synths, and a few sends effects, and a final aux just before the main out. Once labeled, they're just there.

    Any particular behavior that you're noticing?

    Yes. Not all I/O labels get stored permanently, sometimes I get unreadable stuff instead of names and sometimes Logic displays wrong labels in the channelstrip. So far I heard I am not the only one. Permissions repaired, nothing bad to see.
    So what ... I simply don't use this feature anymore ...

    Very strange.

    Your solution is very reasonable given what you describe.
