何时以及如何复位逻辑的偏好设定档案的Trash Talk:为什么指南
Peter Schwartz on Tue, April 26th | 8 comments
Since its earliest incarnations, one of the most common prescriptions for curing Logic of its occasional ills (read: wonky, strange, or seemingly buggy behavior) has been to trash its preference file.

由于其最早的化身,偶尔弊病固化的逻辑(读:靠不住的,奇怪的,或看似越野车的行为最常见的处方之一)已垃圾桶其优先文件。这种做法是不特定的逻辑,因为几乎所有的应用程序创建的首选项文件,这些文件时偶尔会损坏它们可以产生不利影响的应用程序的行为。

The mechanism behind how such files can ever become corrupted has always been a mystery to me. Maybe it is to you too. Regrettably, I can't shed any light on the causes, though it's not like I haven't tried over the years to find out. You may take solace as I have, however, in the answer provided me from numerous conversations I've had with computer programmers on the question of "why do the prefs get corrupted?" Their answers, almost without variation: "it just happens sometimes".

Thus, while the cause itself is not known (and perhaps doesn't even matter) I can't provide you with, as the old adage goes, an ounce of prevention. What I can offer instead is the pound of cure in the form of:

  • knowing when (and when not to) trash your prefs
  • which preferences to trash (there are two preference files to consider)
  • what preferences to make sure you restore to their previous settings, including a few that are little-known, not visible from the Preferences pane, and thus easily overlooked
  • information about what kinds of information can (or will) be irretrievably lost when you trash pref files

01 - 寻找和销毁!

之前,否则举止温和的逻辑用户偏好捣毁横行熄灭,将有助于他们知道他们的名字是什么,以及他们所在的:

"Main" Logic Preferences (.plist)
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.plist

Control Surface Preferences
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs

一旦你找到了这些文件,你会被罚款的立场是取消,玩完,抹杀掉,或在一些其他的方式派遣他们。虽然采取任何此类行动之前,让我们熟悉这些文件包含什么类型的信息。

偏好。PLIST文件存储在逻辑的偏好设置面板的各种标签,以及一些重要的参数没有出现在那里(不久被发现)发现参数。

02 - 偷偷靠近你的猎物

有相当数量是捣毁。plist文件将玉米田永远失去了希望的参数设置。

等待。我刚刚意识到,结合“麦田”这一段的标题可能会被视为故意的双关语。亲爱的读者,我可以向你保证,这不是。我绝不会屈尊如此之低。从来没有。 [啊哈]

考虑:预置面板有九个类别的选择。它们之间存在21制表符,以及各种个人设置窗格,总计超过150,将有可能被初始化参数,当你垃圾的首选项。我提供这个角度来看,锤炼你的热情,应该鞍马您的首选项的冲动,只是因为你的东西是不正确的逻辑工作。捣毁Prefs的应该是最后的手段。

03 - (首选项喜欢被称为“设置” - 他们这样挑剔)

这里,我们看到的图标访问“首选项”,在上述安排当地的头。

图2:首选项

重要的是要注意的喜好和设置(“项目设置”)之间的区别。首选项是“全球性”和形状的方式逻辑的外观,感觉,任何项目的运作,而​​项目设置用于调整的行为或改变逻辑的个别项目运作的各个方面的参数。这方面的例子包括节拍器的设置,或计数,在酒吧当记录的数量。所以,当谈到捣毁首选项,一首歌曲的

04 - 选择合适的时机

因此,当是正确的时间来考虑snuffing。plist文件?好,让我们开始与少数情况下,

  1. when you install a new plugin or JamPack and the plugin (or sounds) don't show up
  2. when one or more instrument or audio tracks don't play back correctly
  3. when automation doesn't play back correctly or in time
  4. when your MIDI controller isn't recognized by Logic
  5. when strange fonts show up in the score editor
  6. when you get error messages reporting synchronization or disk too slow errors
  7. when certain keys or controls on your controller stop working correctly (this is a sign of control surface pref file corruption, not .plist file corruption)
  8. when key commands stop working correctly

上述是常见的问题 - 在大多数情况下 - 什么都没有做一个腐败的plist文件。。

好了,什么时候应该选择Prefs的垃圾?那么,

05 - 痛下杀手

现在,这种“捣毁”的喜好的过程是有点用词不当,因为它不字面意思找到。pli​​st文件,将其移动到垃圾箱中,然后清空垃圾桶。这将是一个极端的和不必要的(如果不是潜在的遗憾)机动。这里的首选技术:

  • Open your Key Commands window and export your Key Commands. If you fail to do this you run the risk of losing your custom key commands!
  • Quit Logic
  • Locate the .plist file and move it to the Desktop
  • Re-launch Logic

逻辑重新启动后,将创建一个新的首选项文件,所有参数设置为其默认设置。第一件事情,你现在应该做的是重新载入您重新建立你周围的逻辑导航键命令。接下来,进入到您的偏好文件,并重新建立您的首选设置。这意味着有条不紊地通过设置和恢复。是的,这可能是有点费时,但真的是你有没有其他选择,如果你想逻辑的行为,因为它没有前捣毁的首选项(在所有的好方法)。

在这一点上,你应该打开以前参展问题播放一首歌曲,如果在修复捣毁的首选项。

06 - 你赢了一些,你失去了一些

假设逻辑,现在是迫使它来创建一个新鲜的。plist文件运行顺利,可能会有一些残留的某些参数设置的“损失”。其中的喜好和其他用户的设置存储在plist文件:

  • custom colors you've made in the Color Palette (figure 3)
  • EXS-24 virtual instrument settings and preferences (you may wish to take note of these before you trash the prefs so that you can restore them later. See figures 4 - 6)
  • stored Zoom 1/2/3 settings
  • the list of recently opened files
  • possibly some other settings which I haven't yet discovered (just covering myself here LOL!)

图3:显示出在较低的左上角的几个自定义颜色的调色板,

图4:EXS24 Preferences菜单

图5:EXS24取样偏好

图6:EXS24虚拟内存设置

如果你觉得麻烦的行为,促使你垃圾的首选项仍然的,你有选择还原原始的首选项,特别是如果你想重新夺回丢失的属性(如上所列)。过程是:

  • Quit Logic
  • Locate the newly created .plist file and move it to the trash
  • Move the old .plist file back to the preferences folder
  • Re-launch Logic

07 - 我最不喜欢的复位县

出后捣毁的首选项,一个是最高度的问题(在我看来)是样本精确的自动化设置重置为默认设置的所有的项目得到。默认为“音量,声像,发送”。我不明白,在此设置的“逻辑”,但是,因为它可能会,捣毁您的首选项后,我建议将它设置你在下图中看到的“,音量,声像,发送,插件参数“。

08 - 当提上胡说的CS Prefs的。

我会让没有骨头:

  1. your sustain pedal or other controller suddenly stops working
  2. a single key on your controller suddenly stops working (and pressing it doesn't "register" in Logic's MIDI Monitor, located in the Transport)

在这种情况下,最好仔细检查,故障未与您的控制器。但是,如果你有理由相信它的优良,继续前进,“垃圾”CS Prefs的。

  • Quit Logic
  • Locate the .cs file and move it to the desktop
  • Re-launch Logic

如果现在你的控制器如预期般运作,你的,CS的可能性Prefs的损坏是相当高的。警告:

  • Excellent tutorial. You know how many times I have fussed over why something was not working. To realize that all it was was a corrupt preference file.

    Thanks Gary and Rounik. Rounik, the only reason I didn't talk trashier in my article is because that MPV editor guy emailed me after submitting my first draft, writing, "My dear man, taking a reasonable approach to troubleshooting is much more preferable than the yelling, screaming, and cursing route." After reading it, I stomped around the studio for a while, throwing my hands up in the air for dramatic effect (and aerobic exercise), sulked for about an hour, maybe two, and only then did I wipe away the tears and get to work on the second draft. Man, it's really hard work writing for these guys... : - )

    Thanks 'ski', this article is packed with good info. Oh, btw, I'm glad you referred to trashing preferences as 'a form of troubleshooting voodoo', which made me chuckle, because there's a certain 'MPV editor guy' who I've seen recommend trashing Logic's preferences a number of times! Well, maybe for him it's more like acupuncture than voodoo! ;-)

    I'm pretty sure that... No, I'm *absolutely* sure, that... Well, at the very least I'm **pretty darn sure** that Mr. "MPV Editor Guy" (who shall, of course, remain nameless) wasn't entirely unjustified in his recommendations. Even for an editor! Then again, you know what they say, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions". But in all honestly -- and all kidding aside -- I can't foist that sentiment upon Mr. Editor, as I've gotten to know him quite a bit over the past few months and he's the furthest things from being an irresponsible sorta guy. So call it voodoo, magic, or technological snake oil, but sometimes it's the most effective Rx.

    Ha! yeah... the pesky MPV Editor guy -always with the same turbulent, trashy, troubleshooting tricks. Not sure I'd go for the snake oil or acupuncture analogies... but perhaps I see it more like a detox diet - flush out those bugs! :-)

    Leave it to the editor to come up with the most appropriate analogy. Detox diet it is!
