    Plug-ins and dropouts......
    Hi: Recently I've started having dropouts with Ivory and RMX, and EX insts. when I play back a song in Logic. Logic will play and then a "error when synching audio and midi.." message appears. It says this even if there are no midi/audio tracks playing.....just plug-ins. It keeps playing but stuttering and stopping constantly. I've had this message occasionally in the past, but it always seems to sort itself out and everything worked fine. I have some older hardware stuff as well but it seems to work o.k. I'm using 7.1 with a dual core G5..... So......Does anyone know what this message means and...how to fix the stuttering/stopping ? ? Many thanks... Braden

    Hi Braden, What 3rd party hardware/drivers are you using? Just to check you are running 10.4.9? Any reason why you've not upgraded to 7.2.3? Also, what sample rate are your projects? There's a really good support article here: [url]http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2111[/url] Let me know if it helps.. or not :) Rounik

    Hi Rounik and thanks for that link.....the info was really helpful. As it turned out, I'm running 2 Motu 828's as an aggregate and the 2nd units' optical output had somehow been set to 'none' instead of Toslink. {I'm using s/pdif to connect the 2 units] Once I reset that, everything started working fine. I didn't change the setting, so I'm not sure what happened there..... Re; logic vers. etc... My OS is 10.4.11 Yes, I know I'm behind the current standard with 7.1.... I haven't upgraded partly because of finances.... it gets expensive to constantly jump for every upgrade that comes along. I'm kind of a behind-the-curve- guy !! But also 'cause everything works very well with my current set up......I've heard many stories of people upgrading and what a mess it can turn into. But maybe its time to go to 7.2 at least.....! btw.....Is it possible to jump to logic 8 or 9 without going to 7.2 first ? thanks again Rounik......always enjoy reading your knowledgable comments on these forums. best Braden

    Hi Braden, Yes, it's possible for you to upgrade to Logic 9 : http://store.apple.com/us_smb_78313/product/MB795 In fact, Logic 7.2 is not available anymore... unless you find a copy on ebay. Cheers! Christian

    Ah yes, good point Christian. 7.1 to 7.2 was a paid upgrade... Better to go upgrade straight to Logic 9 when you're ready Braden. Just remember to clone your system. Also, it's never a bad idea to install a new OS and version of Logic on an external drive and run it from there to give it a test and give yourself a transition period :) Cheers! Rounik

    Christian and Rounik: Thanks for that info. I checked out the link to Apple and it appears that my current dual core G5 wouldn't run L9 anyway 'cause of the intel processor ...which mine doesn't have. Hmm....I'm sensing a large outlay for a new Mac even before upgrading to Logic .....correct ? B

    Re: Plug-ins and dropouts......
    ... well, actually many dual-core G5 owners have reported that Logic 9.0.0 to 9.0.2 runs fine on their Macs. However, the latest Logic 9.1.1 only supports Intel processors. 9.1.1 supports 64-bit mode and some bug fixes... so yes, I'd advise upgrading to a new intel Mac if you want to run Logic 9... but it is technically possible to run Logic 9 on a G5. You should find that the top of the range i5 and i7 iMacs easily out perform your current G5...
