    How many Audio files can be open in Logic 9 ?
    Is there a known limit ? Couldn't find something about thais. I have to work with 2506 audio snippets on 30 tracks. Should be possible, right ? thanks z

    Hi xm33, Yes, that should be possible... I haven't tested a project with that many individual audio files. Do they have to be imported as individual files or can whoever is providing them give you 30 files (one per track)?

    Thanks Rounik, no they are individual files, between 17 and 155 per track (around 30 tracks total). After 1000 files loaded, it took quite a while (minutes) for the next 150 files (they are between 1 and 20 seconds long, most of them short).

    What format and bit depth are the files btw? Would be interested to know your experiences with this kind of project... If you find things slow down dramatically then, if it's practical, you can bounce each track to a new audio file and then cut it up and treat the regions as you wish. Perhaps using Strip silence would be a quick way to split up each track's audio region ...

    As far as I know there is a limitation of 256 audio tracks, but you could add as many audio samples between those tracks as you like. Suppose it will depends on how your CPU handles.

    Short report on my experiences. After 1000+ files (.wav 24 bit) I was only able to load 10 to 20 files at once. If I tried more than Logic crashed. After several hours of loading the rest of the 2500 files Logic was working just fine. Only copy-paste takes up to 15 seconds. But the project is now running on my MBP (4+ years old) too.
