EXS24 blanked/mix deranged... mysteriously

    Hi there folks,

    Sorry, I posted this in the wrong forum. I will go and delete the other copy after posting this...

    I'm a Logic Pro user, have been since it was owned by Emagic. I love the program and really enjoy many of the new features that Apple brought the UI. That said, I have been having a problem with songs getting altered mysteriously. It's happened sporadically over the last couple of years.

    For example, I had been working on a song in May. I left the song to gestate, and went back yesterday to add another voice to it. Opened the song: the sound sounded fine. Added a track. All of a sudden not only is the mix completely bizarre, but two of my exs-24 midi instruments have been blanked and are just sine-waves.

    All of this has happened before (although sometimes it's just opening the song and finding that it has been mysteriously deranged) and I can't for the life of me figure out what is causing it. It's EXTREMELY frustrating to have a mix suddenly deranged by the software. So much work goes in to get things just right. Really they will never be exactly the same.

    The only 3d party plugins I use are Abbey Road Brilliance Pack, Trillian and Augustus Looper. Everything else is native Logic Pro. Does anyone know anything about this terrible bug and what I can do about it?

    This has happened to me - mainly with old files resurrected from previous Logic versions. In my case it was notes going to random pitches.

    All you can do is mute the tracks one at a time until you find the culprits, create a new file and copy-paste the clean tracks, then recreate the problematic tracks from scratch. Hope this helps.

    Isn't a sign wave what you get out of EXS24 if it can't load a patch? It just plays a sine wave so you can use it without any samples or programming.

    As for "deranged mix", maybe you could explain what involves other than the EXS24 problem.

    My suggestion would be start a new project and use the import dialogue to bring stuff from the damages/corrupted project. Sine wave from exs24 tends to mean it can't find the appropriate samples

    Old thread I know, but if exs24 cannot f ind the samples, as mentioned, it plays a sine wave. A common fix is to reindex spotlight.
