Just wanted to post a follow up to my initial post… Had a phone tech session with Apple/Logic Pro X support over the weekend and after 3 calls we finally got things (mostly) running again. Turns out that a somewhat helpful partial fix was to remove Logic Pro X preferences. Specifically: com.apple.logic10.plist.
I wasn’t aware that plist files could have such a terrible effect on the whole system performance like I was experiencing.
Does Audacity have any similar preferences files that can be relatively safely deleted when things aren’t working well?
The Wxwidgets debug dialog is still coming up from time to time, generally only happens when I have run a 3rd party plug-in, either VST or AU. Happens after applying the plug-in settings, but before can totally close out the plug-ins screen. Good news is that although the debug dialog is popping up, it is no longer crashing when I choose “cancel”.
As for removing expired plug-ins, I just went into the Library/Audio and manually removed/deleted AU components or VST’s I wanted out of the system. Otherwise seems much improved, other than dropping USB recorder interface. But that is easily fixed by powering off USB device and then back on and having Audacity re-scan audio devices.
One lingering issue I have still is that sometimes, especially when I have Audacity and some other Audio program open I get a system freakout (best I can really explain it). If you’re not offended by some blue language, I posted a YouTube Video to show Apple Support after I was tired of explaining the issue over and over again. Check out this video on YouTube:
Worst thing when this happens is that the files are not saved by Audacity and when I tried to re-open Audacity it failed to recover the files. I had a data folder in my default save location but there was not .aup file.
I ended up finding the files (I think) but they are now all out of order and are cut into 6 sec increments and all jumbled up. The method as shown here is not working for me:
