    Logic Pro 9 MIDI Instruments have no output after record

    Greetings, This is a known issue with Logic and as a MIDI guy can drive me nuts. :eeek: If you save your project and close it, then reopen it, (sometimes you have to shut down Logic too, but that is also inconsistent) you will see that the regions are muted. Highlight them, hit m to unmute...

    I can tell you what I have setup and I am trouble free. Actually, it is quite close to what you have. FW 400 - MOTU 828Mk2 FW 800 (but running at 400) - 2 Glyph FW 7200 RPM Drives, one is samples, one is projects. Samples daisy chains off of projects FW to FW. A USB2 drive also daisy chained...

    Hey ryguy76, Glad to help. :) Given the workload you described (no more than 2 audio tracks recording at a time and up to 24 tracks in a project) I would not expect for you to have any issues. The cache will help, but keep in mind it holds recently accessed data for fast access and does not...

    I agree if you are going to only be recording a maximum of 2 audio tracks. Given you have an MK3 (or an MK2 for that matter) I assumed you would be recording more than 2 tracks, that's what I get for assuming! Apparently the bus is shared by both the 800 and 400 FW ports. Hence, if you run...

    Time for a Mac Pro—Which One?

    The 6 core boxes are going to be sexy, no doubt. The short answer to the original question is the biggest, baddest box you can afford. Its the only way to not regret your purchase 2 weeks down the road. Here's hoping the 6 way boxes don't cost the same as a new car... -Kevin

    hey ryguy76. It so happens that I have a MOTU 828 MK2 myself. Small world. :) I run the 828 on the Firewire 400 port and my two Glyph Firewire drives off of the 800 port. This does force both into 400 mode, but I don't care. I have two other Western Digital firewire drives daisy chained off...

    As a rule you should have the OS on one drive, (this will include plug-ins that go in the component or VST folders) samples on another drive and projects on a third drive. Then drives to back them up and drives to backup the backup drives. (Well, that backup part is just for paranoids like me...

    I totally agree with what you are saying zerobeat. The reason I list it as a limitation is because I've found if you have a Firewire audio device and you daisy chain hard drives off of it (or vice versa) pops and clicks occur that otherwise would not. In my mind that becomes an interface data...

    I second seebee62, as i have the same iMac. I'll add a caveat though. I would not purchase an iMac unless it was the top of the line Quad 4 model and then I would upgrade the internal disk and memory to their maximum. (Via a 3rd party, Apple is too expensive as we all know.) The question...
