Re-posting from Youtube post:
Me: Have you or anyone else found bugs in Logic X ? (or maybe Mavericks)  When I record enable on Inst or Aud track the CPU meter starts activity and builds up gradually until it clicks and then distorts every time. Installed FreeMem from app store but still same prob. Thanks in advance


 Dancetech: perhaps it's your audio interface make/model? or is this problem reported widely?

Could be my audio interface yes, theres always been a slight noise from monitors, I always assumed thats normal!


But more people are now saying theres known memory problems with Mavericks, and in particular with Logic (X). Also saying best combo is Snow Leopard + Logic 9, which is what I had before upgrade! I had occasional probs with this setup, mainly latency build up after a time, which I would fix by restarting Logic.
Anyone experiencing similar probs?

Regards the sound from interface, are you using balanced cables, i had an maudio fire 410 that picked up power supply and cpu noises, all reduced by 98% with balanced cables.

Mr Hatman - good point, I dont know if the firewire cable that came with the Saffire is balanced, its very long tho!

K - Interesting about Mavericks power saving, I'm thinking more now that it is Mavericks, it all started when I upgraded.
And, now if I go back to Logic 9 the problem is there now as well!
To recap, if I open a new project with Audio track its ok.
If I open project with software instrument track, as soon as I load up an instrument the CPU shoots up to about half way, and gradually goes up to full, over time & playing etc.
Does sound like a Mavericks problem when used in conjunction with a slightly older Mac processor (3.06 GHz, Duo Core, 2009)
No idea how to turn off the power saving?
Also just increased the RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb - Mac is quicker but still have problem.

Hi Dancetech, I read your link to Apple Mavericks tech info, thanks.
Also if you read comments/feedback at Apple store MAvericks downloads page it appears there are many unhappy customers with many apps running Mavericks!
So it could well be the power saving crap you pointed out in Mavericks.
But I can't see anywhere that Apple tells you how to turn it all off, and maybe you can't.
So what do you do? Wait for them to sort it out, or go back to previous OS - but then you can't use Logic X, it would have to be Logic 9 !
Hmmm..

..and the 3rd option is to upgrade Mac to newer level.
Understand Mavericks runs better on newer faster spec Macs which is bit of a con, and at about £1k an expensive test to find out!

Well the golden rule is, dont upgrade OS until you have checked user-reports and feedback to see that it doesn't cause a problem.

Sadly you might have to re-install whatever OS you were running before and then re-install logic etc - rebuild from scratch

Tbh I was suspicious of Mavericks when i saw it is free and my mac's keep on suggesting to make me upgrade to it in software update every other day
