1- Better Marker Management. Sometimes i just need a quick marker with a note to remind me of stuff on that bar or whatever. Having a marker reach infinitum is not ideal, but could also be both versions.
Not sure what you mean exactly by this.

2- An on/off for all plugins in a channel strip. It already exists in the selection based processing, just wish it was also on the normal channel strips.
Agreed.

3- Custom mixer arrangement. Cool it follows the main windows arragement but sometimes i want to move them around in the mixer.
Honestly have grown so used to not having this feature I don't even care for it anymore. And if you've set up your templates exactly the way you need them, there's little need for wanting to move mixer channels. But yeah not everybody is like me.

4- Fix that plugin parameters vs midi automation vs changing up automation...thing that was impletmented a few versions ago and no one likes or seems to really understand.
I have ZERO idea what you mean by this...


5- Multi CC editing in the piano roll section. This one has been asked since forever. still waiting.
Again, one of those "I've resorted to a workaround so I don't miss it" type of deal for me. But if Logic finally got it that would be great.

6- Different color piano roll notes for different midi regions (Edit: w/o region color assignment). An easier way to know which midi track its being edited. Would speed things up imo.
Already exists.

7- Easy way to non destructive reverse audio file. Or create a copy etc. just a better way. (edit: it exist! still key command assignable would be cool)
Already exists. Yes, I meant the key command too. Dude, you need to really look through your key commands window and look up recent release notes/changelogs before making a list of stuff you wished Logic had. They added a bunch of stuff in recent updates.

8- Easier syncronization and tempo mapping. Even after 15+ years using logic, its such a weird on and off - sometimes works maybe not thing. Maybe its just that freaking half frame?! etc.
Agreed, it could be better.

9- 5.1 implementation that actually works for normal poeple.
Don't and probably never will work with surround sound so it's not an inconvenience, for me anyway.

10- Better export all tracks feature.
Agreed, could be better.

11 - Track names that cannot be repeated. How many "track_1" can i have? well, like 200!
Errmmm.

12 - Better flex pitch and time algorithms.
Agreed.

im sure the logic developers are laughing their asses off to some of these.

Ahh, got it. I was thinking cpu. Of coarse ram is the issue for huge templates
Yes. But I don’t think the On/Off button in Logic even saves on CPU, at least not from what I’ve seen ... it seems to mostly just be another way to mute the track output. Have you or anyone else seen it positively affect your CPU usage?

that is pretty cool. One of the midi plugins automatically detects chords... so it would be cool if logic would automaticallty add something like you have out of a specific track.
The main interface can detect chords as they are played in!

Of course I would like to have

- disabled tracks

- increase the limit of possible objects/tracks/channel strips from 255 to 9999

- a well implemented and advanced non linear mode like live loops

- a DP like chunks feature

- the ability to open more than one project at the time in a tabbed interface

- the ability to manually activate loaded projects for easier copy/paste workflows between projects.

you beat me on that.

@gsilbers: Eli Krantzberg has a dozen of brilliant videos up on www.groove3.com - all the updates 10.x updates with their new features. I can really recommend those (no, I'm not affiliated): https://www.groove3.com/browse/by-author/eli-krantzberg
(you might want to filter the list by "Logic X")

But it’s implementation needs further tweaks. If you reverse non destructively the anchor point doesn’t work correctly. If you marquee highlight a part of audio you have to split the file manually before you can reverse the selection with key command. It should work like marquee selections and mute region/event key command.

Not if you have "Flex & Follow" in the Inspector unchecked.

Agreed. I absolutely love the way Bitwig does this. Literally drag and drop from one project to another, and done so elegantly.

- a DP like chunks feature
YES. Would love this.

- disabled tracks
Yeah, like REAL disabled. Where it takes up zero resources.

- a well implemented and advanced non linear mode like live loops
I would love this too, but somehow I feel like the Live Looping feature will be go to MainStage instead... mainly because MainStage is after all designed for live performance. And hey, they gotta save some features for Mainstage too! But yeah. Imagine if MainStage got a really advanced non linear mode Live Loops feature... and... they kept MainStage at its current price point (a ridiculous $29.99). Imagine how many more Macs they would sell to kids wanting to get into electronic music production + DJ-ing.

I would hesitate to call that an "implementation" at all right now, actually. You "can do things in something different than stereo", but that's about it. :-P

Thanks.. I’ve been using logic since 2003.. and learned it w Jeff Beal. I just forget stuff sometimes. Forget a lot of things. And as I mentioned in the op, there is plenty of workarounds and hidden or other ways of doing things.. but for me.. these are small things that other daws have it better. Like having simple markers like in pro tools. Minor stuff.

I wonder since the media landscape has changed so much and people mainly consuming it via their smartphone (now w no headphone jack) the desition to do a better 5.1 was discarded back in 2008 for other better features. Developers said... meh.. not that many use it and Charlie clouser already wrote like 20 pages on his 5.1 setup using the environment ;)

What do u mean w non linear mode like live loops? Is like Ableton Live ?

Agree the other ones. The chunks in dp is def very cool.
I would still be happy with folders within folders. :)

and that's why the vids - i'm in the same boat and they really help me to see the little things which come with every update

- FAST switching screen sets without up-popping window animation!

- Repaired event list window that is as fast and bug free as it was in Logic 10.2.4

- Custom colors

- Again: multiple CC-lanes and unloading RAM for disabled software instruments

- Reducing active channel CPU spikes (VEPro is able to - so we know it's possible)
