Let’s be honest with each other for a moment. Despite all the glory Logic Pro X brings to our musical lives, it’s not all roses and cupcakes, is it?
Sometimes we run into an unforeseen circumstance. A hiccup, if you will. And that that hiccup can send us on an hour(s) long chase for a solution.
That’s why I’m starting a new series and YouTube playlist called Troubleshooting Logic Pro X.
This series will answer those questions I receive the most from Logic users. The video are designed to be short, quick and efficient solutions to the most common hiccups in Logic.
And to start this series off with a bang, I’ve posted 3 new videos on pressing Logic questions:
- Can’t Find That Cool Feature You Saw on YouTube in Logic Pro X? Here’s How to Find It
- Stop Losing Files in Your Logic Projects – Consolidate For Collabs and Future-Proofing
- How to Stop Logic From Auto-Quantizing Your Recordings and Imported Audio Files
Each video is roughly 5 minutes in length. Quick, and to the point. And you can watch all 3 below:
Very often the issues we run into in Logic require nuance and finesse.
Or in plain English – we just don’t know how to fix the problems. My hope is Troubleshooting Logic Pro X will be that solution.
Have a pressing Logic question you think would be a great fit for the Troubleshooting Logic Pro X series? Leave a comment below!

I’m new at this recording process and your videos are such a great help.
When I go to mix my project the volume fader has a mind of its own. When I bring it down and hit play it goes back up to where it was. I’m not 100% sure, but it seems to only be affected by midi files I have imported from Finale.
Any thoughts on what could be the problem?
Great as always cdawg. Keep the NE bright bro.

I’m new to logic pro x, and producing in general, so im not really sure if the problem im having is the problem your referring to in your third video here. Every time I try and load and audio file to the work flow, like an acapella or any song for that matter, it gets entirely warped and oddly pitched, doesn’t match the tempo at all. I have watched numerous videos and tried messing with the Time & Pitch machine with no luck, the Flex tool, “setting the project tempo to audio file” with absolutely no help. Do you think the Auto Quantizing is the root of my problem?
I just upgraded to Logic Pro X 10.5. Now some of my projects have that annoying “additional content needed for this project” message even though nothing is missing. Maybe a video on this issue?
Im getting the same message, very annoying to have to download and install every time I open a project
Gordon, I’m now thinking this may be a bug with the new version as I have tried numerous suggestions to fix the problem. Plus, my sound library is complete and my projects aren’t really missing anything. I have reported the issue it to Apple.

Ive downloaded Logic Pro X recently and I found to my dismay the playhead is missing , Ive tried everything to find it but to no avail. I heard that this was an issue in Early Catalina, does anyone know if there was an update from Apple containing the patch. I’ve just spoken to a mate and he has exactly the same problem .
Can you help please.

Firstly thanks for all you do to help the Logic community get the best out of this great tool.
Do you know of anyone else who is getting errors saying that “Surround P” and “Atmos” plugins are not available?
I have tried creating new projects but I still can’t access the surround capabilities of the software. Any help would be much appreciated 🙂
