    Have you called Apple about this? This sounds like the kind of issue they'd actually want to see.

    Once you inevitably stump their standard pro apps advisor, (these guys never know anything about Logic even though they're supposed to), they should put you in touch with a senior pro apps advisor. If it's something they haven't seen I wouldn't be surprised if they have you send files that they'll push to the engineering department... (Been through for a few weeks now with issues I'm seeing with the nMBP.)

    I considered updating today but I have no particular reason to. After your experience, I think I’ll wait a bit longer! Were you having any of these problems before the update?

    After the most recent Logic update I would occasionally get an Illegal Region pop up window when I opened a project that I had been working on. And sometimes one region would be deleted and missing, I must confess I've yelled and pounded on my desk a couple of times.

    But the past couple of days has been on another level, much worse. Logic was running slow, a couple of times in the middle of me working on an open project it would just delete sections of the song, as I mentioned in a previous post.

    I rebooted the computer and was working on the project today, no problems. I don't know. That seems to have been a one off type of issue. And no, I haven't called Apple about this. Though I have sent one of those automatic reports in, the ones that pop up sometimes when an app crashes.

    I don't mean to scare anyone off of updating. My experience seems to be in the minority.

    Concerning the illegal region issue, you are not alone. Though as I reported in a recent Logic discussion, it’s hard to say if the LPX update is the issue, or the result of updating to Mojave (or both), as I did these updates in close proximity.

    That being said, I seem to have the ear of someone at the Logic team, as this is the third time in recent years they’ve responded when I’ve submitted feedback; FWIW, I was actually able to reproduce the illegal region problem, and I sent that project and a profile per their request.

    Also since Mojave, I’ve had a couple of the intended alerts for 32-bit apps I didn’t realize were still 32-bit. From what I’ve read, this is to alert users that support will be dropped soon, and perhaps has been dropped to some extent in Mojave, as I could not run a rar extraction tool I frequently use right after I got that alert. Today, I discovered the synsopos to launch some VSL products on its respective dongle is also not 64-bit at this point, with an alert saying the developer would need to update it soon. Who knew? The plugin did launch in Logic, though.

    I don't know if this will help at all as it might be unrelated but I and some others were getting a lot of problems with groups of notes and sometimes whole regions mysteriously disappearing from projects. This was on 10.3.x however. Here is the thread, if you read mostly from post #35 on:

    When will Apple require/mandate that we update to Mojave? I am still on Low Sierra, as I have both Adobe's MCS 6 and Creative Cloud. In addition, one wonders if eventually NI will also require update to Kontakt 6. I have K Player 6, but was curious if things of all sorts would eventually stop working in Mojave.

    Im experiencing 2 problems:
    1- when exporting to wav or aiff file from Finale Notation, I can’t open the files in Itunes and I can’t email them.....??
    2- on my desktop I have 3 Finder windows and 5 applications open and placed specific. Before Mojave, OSX did start up with this specific screen setting, But Mojave don’t recall these specific placements, it moves the Finder windows and Application to other places on the Desktop :-/

    Since High Sierra is a disaster on my Mac mini 2012 quad-i7, I’m thinking to upgrade sooner or later. But how's the lack of support of subpixel rendering on older displays? And have the slow exit from sleep and spinning ball issues afflicting HS been resolved in Mojave?

    Don't do what I did - upgrade to Mojave and then turn the Mac off during important updates. I had to reinstall macOS, which wasn't easy considering I had to put the old graphics card back in - a card that isn't supported by Mojave. In the end I had to have the new and old graphics card in, the new card specifically in slot 1, the outputs of each card going to separate HDMI outputs.

    After the initial pain I'm now successfully running Mojave on my 2009 Mac Pro + Sapphire Pulse RX 580. Worked on a few projects in Logic and no DAW-breaking bugs to report (yet)!

    I’d been holding out because I have a couple 32-bit plugins that I still want to use (with 32Lives), plus everything is working great. I was just about to update a clone to Mojave to see if the old plugins still worked before I update the internal SSD for real...until today when I read above that the hardware must first be updated via High Sierra. Now it doesn’t sound like a viable test.

    Does this mean once the firmware is updated, I can no longer go back to my original [internal] Sierra drive? Can you no longer boot from older OS drives? Or is the firmware only necessary for certain computer models?

    I don't know, but my guess is that the firmware update is for the 5,1 Mac Pro (only) to support the Metal-capable graphics cards Mojave requires. That's based on Apple's 5,1 instructions to update to High Sierra with the old card installed first, rather than going straight from Sierra.

    If you have a different Mac, I would think the question is moot. It seems unlikely that the firmware update isn't backwards-compatible, however. I haven't tried starting from an old macOS, but you can still start up in cloud recovery mode - it boots from a very stripped-down macOS over the Internet - which seems like more evidence that you haven't crossed any bridges.

    If 32Lives works in Mojave, there's no reason it wouldn't work on any machine that runs Mojave. But what you should do in any case is make a bootable clone - i.e. a bit-for-bit copy - of your current startup drive in a working state.
