I have Logic Pro, 8.0.2, running on OSX 10.5.8, Leopard. Here's my problem: Often, when I record a new audio track... it's like that new audio region is "protected" in Sample Editor. In Sample Editor, I cannot edit or delete or cut any section out of that newly recorded track. Can't trim or fade-in or fade-out. Nothing --- except "copy", which is non-destructive. The only way Logic lets me edit is... if I save the Song File, quit Logic, and then reopen the Song File. And only THEN can I delete parts of the audio. (Another silly work-around is for me to "Convert Regions to New Audio Files" --- which is basically taking the AIFF I just recorded + creating a new copy of that AIFF. And then I am able to edit this new copy of the AIFF. Still... it's an unnecessary process.) __ I've also had the same Sample Editor problem, but with a twist: I did not record any new audio. I simply imported an existing AIFF from my desktop. And then in Sample Edit, it wouldn't let me edit that imported AIFF audio. (Just as before, the only option in Sample Edit was "copy", which protects anything from being deleted.) I had to save the Song File, quit Logic, and then re-open that song file. And only then could I actually edit that audio. ___ Even more frustrating: this "error" isn't consistent. Sometimes i can record new audio + edit that audio immediately in Sample Edit, (without saving + restarting the program.) But oftentimes, the error is in full-effect. Has anyone else experienced this? I find it demoralizing, not being able to immediately edit newly recorded audio. Makes me want to get out my old G3 iMac and power up Logic Platinum 4. I never had problems like this in OS9.
