    Help With Logic Pro X Scripter

    Hey, I made a scripter plugin that allows me to "hotswap" samples in my sampler using MIDI CC. However I can't seem to make the CC values persist once I hit play or record or when I reload the project. I made a video (w/ sound) that will probably demonstrate what I mean a little more clearly...

    Which, if any, of these Kontakt libraries should I buy, given my requirements?

    I'm a soundtrack-esque hobbyist composer in Alaska. My biggest musical influences are probably Alexandre Desplat, Jerry Goldsmith, Howard Shore, Nicholas Hooper, Jay Chattaway, Martin O'Donnell, and James Horner.

    Tip for Logic users with performance issues: Memory diag

    I've had some serious issues with Logic lately, and spent a lot of time troubleshooting. The main thing that came out of all these hours were mainly one thing: MacOS/Logic allow us to load more samples into Kontakt than our system can handle, and there's no built in way to monitor that. The...
