    Some ideas I found here:




    From the first discussion the posted updated their Logic version and this fixed the issue. Maybe you have something similar or at least get some inspiration.

    i'm not able to update without buying a new copy of logic, and £200 is a bit much for a bug fix that might not actually work. it definitely sounds like he's had the same issue though.

    the size issue is real rather than a false representation (like people have mentioned in those threads), my mac keeps running out of storage space and chugging until i sort these files.

    cheers for everyone's suggestions so far.

    Weird. Could it be that Catalina is misrepresenting the filesize?

    Or are you making Big Beat?

    this could be a possibilty?

    also: big beats are the best, get high all the time

    Totally spitballing here, but could Logic have something where it renders some audio to flatten-freeze or print stuff ?

    Because 4GB is the maximum size for a WAV file (maibe AIFF too), and could it be that you have some routings that feed back into each other so if you do the freeze/render, the engine will just keep writing this audio into a file even though it should not.

    I know for a fact that I once managed to crash Live by doing some very "clever" routing that fed into itself, caused a stack overflow and poof. That might have been MIDI, but the point is that I don't think DAWs are smart enough to know that there is a loop like this going on.

    Can you listen to these huge files somehow to see what the hell is going on?

    And like for all this kind of problems, it might help to back the project up, then start eliminating tracks or devices from it one by one and see at which point the file size drops back to normal.

    i don't have anything frisky going on in the projects, just audio going through stock logic plug ins, some external MIDI channels, and usually the EXS sampler with a few short samples loaded into it ... that's about it. i don't use or have any softsynths or external plug-ins that could fuck anything up.

    weird. i wonder if you're saving and resaving samples used in sampler instruments? i know you can choose to save all the included samples with the project which i never do unless i'm going to move it around somewhere. 

    my logic projects are never that big.. i'd be surprised if they were over 7 or 8gb. but my projects are max like 16 tracks. 

    i have started to resave audio and sampler instruments in the folder, but only after this started, and it definitely doesn't change anything.

    i started work on a new track today. all i've done is load up a new project, add some MIDI note data, and recorded some one-shot drums to load into a sampler instrument. this is what the project looks like:


    very early stages, nothing unusual going on – no plugins other than a channel EQ on 2 currently empty audio tracks, no audio other than the one-shots shown there. this is what the audio looks like in the finder and in system information:


    they're actually showing 2 different file sizes this time – regular in the finder, and 4.26gb each when going to about my mac > storage > manage

  3. it's cool to hear what you guys pick, it's interesting that artist's favourites usually differ from the public's.

    i'll play. this weird one is a mood i go back to now and then. 


    always like revisiting this one. the drums and lazy progression i guess. 



    what's the story on the artwork? it like it, looks like a fair amount of effort went into it.

    my favourites are my latest two. they're also the only ones that aren't terribly recorded and mixed, so things might change when/if i finally get around to rerecording others.
