Good advice is good advice... The 5 in-depth tips in this article are your 'recipe for success' when using your favorite DAW in any studio setting (from bedroom to multimillion dollar setup).


ヒント1 - 更新を停止

プロジェクトの途中で。 、これまでに、馬を途中で切り替えることはありません。それはあまりにも危険。私は(そして、本当に私は)それを言うことを憎むあまりのように更新しても何か他のものを壊して文句を言わないという当たり前のことができません。しかし、あなたが何を選択した任意の

ヒント2 - モルモットしてはいけない



汝はダチョウが ​​好きではないこと


ヒント3 - 欠陥だけでなく、機能を学ぶ





  • First, when you can prove that a given set of actions has a deleterious result, you can begin to practice avoidance of the dysfunctional feature, or look for a workaround. Truly, being aware of a program’s flaws is equally as important as knowing about its working features!

  • Second, you can help others out by sharing this information. Internet forums are especially useful for spreading the word (though don’t be too quick to “cry bug” before you’ve tried to reproduce the problem on your own). If you’re convinced a bug is at play, posting about it may attract knowledgeable people who can help you troubleshoot or work around the situation. And if you frequent forums as a regular part of your daily “never can learn enough about my DAW” regimen, don’t gloss over other people’s bug reports. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say. 


ヒント4 - よく保存!

ミュージシャンがゾーンに到達したとき、彼らはしばしば、 コマンド+ Sを押すと、その作業内容を保存することを忘れない。一方、マーフィーの法則は、コンピュータがホードは史上最高記録ホード取るを含むプロジェクトを保存した直前に、予期せずクラッシュすることを指示する。

Pro Toolsのとは違って、それが一定の間隔で自動的にあなたの仕事をバックアップしていないため、特にロジックユーザーは、心臓にこの穏やかなリマインダーを取る必要があります。

しかし、関係なく、あなたが使用するどのようなプログラムの、その代わりに、基本的なコマンド+ S Saveの機能付けて保存]を使用することを検討してください。あなたはそれが以前とどのように異なるのかについての言及で各新しいセーブに名前を付けることができますこの方法で保存します。

ヒント5 - データのバックアップ!

彼らのハードドライブが腹上がり、theyveは、おそらく、明白なことを述べて、その価値を、すべてのデータを失ったのでアイブ荒廃ミュージシャンから読み取るフォーラムの投稿から判断する:バックアップ専用のドライブを持っている! Mac上で、あなたのデータをバックアップすることは容易になるcouldntの。二つの言葉:タイムマシン。これは、バックグラウンドで実行され、時間ごとにデータを保存します。

予算でyoureの場合、バックアップメディアの場合、たとえ安価なUSBドライブでいいや。ただ、それが接続され、Time Machineが常時オンになっている。あなたにはない余裕があれば、あなたがバックアップドライブを買う余裕傾けると思えば、自問してみてください!

    I definitely live by the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' when it comes to software updates. And I've learnt the hard way when it comes to backup. So now I have numerous drives in place that run my backups just in case. Thanks for the great article!

    This article rings so true with Logic especially. Following the last update (9.1.8 I believe) that was suppose to (amongst other things) fix an issue with plug-ins that contain visual feedback (a la FabFilter C, WOW Filter, etc.), I now find that having multiple instances Logic's stock channel EQ with the spectrum analyzer engaged creates criminal-level latency. So much that after hitting "spacebar" to stop a track, it can literally take up to 30 seconds to respond. All is not lost though, as I now rely on my FabFilter Pro Q. While I have made many Time Machine backups, I'm too stubborn/scared to revert back. Here's hoping for Logic 9.5 (or Logic X!).

    I wouldn't pin my hopes on a new and projected version of Logic solving your problems which are immediate, as opposed to Logic X (or whatever) which is indefinite. Suggest you do a complete backup of your present setup and then revert back to 9.1.x (where the "x" is whatever worked for you previously). Worst case, you can always re-revert to 9.1.8 and press on with that.

    In between updating something the day it comes out and doing it only "when it's broken" or "truly compelling" is a wide swath. I will disagree with my very dear friend and colleague, the brilliant Mr. Schwartz, and say that folks should shoot for somewhere in the middle :)
