Logic Pro X Way to make Logic Pro default to 48k?

Is there a way to make Logic Pro default to 48k?
I get inspired or excited and start to record without bothering to check the settings. I almost always want to use 48k 24bit. Is there a way to set this? I know I could make a template, but again, I would forget about that when I'm in a hurry.
Thanks in advance.

Make sure your output device is set to 48k/24 bit.

When I make a New Project I leave the input and output devices alone (selecting default) and my project is set to 48k

Use Audio/MIDI Setup to configure your device (and whatever is required to set the output device to the proper sample rate)

When you start a new project from scratch do you just use Logic’s default empty project or do you use your own customised template that you’ve saved as a template?

You should look at doing your own template for lots of good reasons if you don’t already. Saving the sample rate with the template is just one good reason.

Also regarding the previous post and setting the sample rate of your interface, for me at least with the 5 or 6 different interfaces I’ve used over past years, Logic actually switches their sample rate automatically to bring it into line with the sample rate of the template or project I am loading so this approach won’t work with all interfaces.

Kind regards

Hmm. Good point about the interface. I'm using an ancient MOTU 828mkII. I just did a little test. I turned on the interface and it was set to 44.1. I then used MOTU Audio Setup to change it to 48k. Then I switched it off and then back on again. It remembered that it was set to 48k. Next I opened Logic to a new project. It defaulted to 44.1k and the interface switched to 44.1. So my question remains the same: is there a way to set Logic to automatically start in 48k?
I know I can change and set parameters before recording, but the point is, I forget sometimes in the heat of battle. :cool:

There should be a pop-up menu in the Logic interface (audio settings?) that lets you change the sample rate.
If the sample rate doesn't match the interface it is usually listed in italics - when matching, no italics.

The short answer is no as far as I know. Sample rate is a project level thing thus you have to set it for each project unless you use pre-configured templates as I have already mentioned.

Okay. That answers my question. Thanks. I'll have to rein in my enthusiasm and remember to go through the sample rate ritual each time.
