Logic Pro 9 Song crashes Logic before opening

Hi guys,

If my memory serves me well (now where have I heard that before?), there used to be a key command, or some such, in earlier versions of Logic (7 or 8) to open a song without initializing the driver, or loading AUs and SIs. Am I suffering a wishful-thinking moment. I have a song which WILL NOT OPEN and crashes Logic every time, with every version of the song file (of which I have about four recorded at different times as the song progresses), even backups.
it's not an old song and has opened before in Logic 9.
The only thing I wish to do is rescue the MIDI from the various SIs that I used, so I don't have to identify and perform them all again.

Any ideas or tips?

Best regards

Graeme Douglas


Start up holding the control key. You will be prompted with the option to launch Logic without the core audio driver.

Thanks, Eli.
I'm much obliged to you. Have a good holiday season (same to all of you in Logic land).

Has anyone noticed how often these multi-cores on Pro get unevenly-loaded when Logic is running? This is a real pain in the ***.
