Logic Pro X 10.4.4 RAM Problem

I’m trying to use LPX on MacOS 10.14.5, and I’m watching it grab every bit of available RAM for every single edit I try to make. It’s making it glacially slow and unusable. Is this a reinstall issue?

How much RAM do you have? How are you determining how much RAM Logic is using? Via "Activity Monitor"? Check Activity Monitor memory while running Logic and post a screen shot if you can.

I’m using Memory Cleaner 2 and watching RAM availability go down to 8% on every edit I attempt to make. 16gb of RAM, 2014 MB Pro.

I have zero familiarity with Memory Cleaner 2, but from past experience, such “utilities” generally cause problems and accomplish little.

It’s just a RAM monitoring app and GUI for the “sudo purge” terminal command. Causes zero problems with any other DAW. Same behavior happens with or without it. I watch the RAM go all the way down to 8% every time I make an edit in LPX.

Okay, so this has to do with having imported a Garageband project. Never doing that again

Eh? So you re-saved and it went away?

Often doing a Project Management > Clean Up operation can help. Be careful as it seems to delete your History as well. In fact just clearing your History can also be beneficial.

I've also noticed that some plugins may have memory leaks the more you open and close them. A simple restart of Logic can help with this.
