Logic Express 9.1.8: Release notes
Mar 13, 2015
This update improves overall stability, provides numerous fixes and improvements, and is recommended for all users of Logic Express 9. Running Logic Express 9.1.2 in 64-bit mode requires Mac OS X v10.6.2 Snow Leopard or later. For information about running Logic Express in 64-bit mode, see this article. Some issues addressed in this update include but are not limited to: Performance and Stability

Logic Pro/Express : Startup modifier keys for troubleshooting
Mar 13, 2015By holding down modifier keys while you open the application, you can put Logic Pro or Logic Express into one of several troubleshooting modes. To do this, go to your Applications folder, double-click the Logic icon, then hold down the respective modifier key(s) from the table below until a dialog appears or Logic is fully loaded.
Start without Audio
This can be helpful to rule out issues with a specific Core Audio driver. In some cases, Logic may stop responding or quit unexpectedly while initializing the Core Audio driver. In these cases, start Logic Pro or Logic Express without Audio. If needed, turn on Built-In Audio for the troubleshooting.
This will only load Audio Units that have passed the Audio Units Validation Tool which is automatically launched on the very first startup of Logic. If you have enabled Audio Units that did not pass this test, you may experience unexpected quitting or misbehavior. With this option, you may revert Logic Pro or Logic Express to a stable state.
Start without Autoload/Template/LastRecent
This will start Logic Pro or Logic Express without loading a Template, Autoload, or last-opened project. This can be useful for troubleshooting any kind of issue since it excludes the possibility that an issue is specific to or caused by the currently loaded project. Choosing File > New with the Option Key held down will load an empty default project for troubleshooting.
Logic Pro, Logic Express, MainStage: Disable or remove Audio Unit plug-ins to troubleshoot issues
Mar 12, 2015In many cases, you can troubleshoot issues with Audio Unit plug-ins by disabling them in the Audio Units Manager. If you can't use the Audio Units Manager because Logic or MainStage won't open, you can remove the plug-ins.To open the Audio Units Manager:Click Logic Pro, Logic Express, MainStage, or MainStage 3 in the main menu bar.Choose Audio Units Manager or Preferences > Audio Units Manager from the drop-down menu. The Audio Units Manager will open.Disable Audio Units by deselecting their respective checkboxes in the Logic or Use column and in the Node column (depending on the application). Click the Done button.Quit and reopen Logic or MainStage for the changes to take effect.If you are having trouble opening Logic or MainStage and suspect an Audio Unit plug-in may be the cause, you can troubleshoot by manually removing plug-ins.Most Audio Units install to this location:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/ComponentsOther Audio Units install to:~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/ComponentsTo disable any Audio Unit for troubleshooting purposes, simply move the file from one of the above locations to another one, such as the desktop, before opening Logic or MainStage. If you don't know which plug-in may be causing the issue, move them all from the above locations.To access ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/ComponentsIn the Finder choose Go > Go to Folder from the menu.Type ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components in the "Go to the folder" field.Press the Go button.If Logic or MainStage behaves correctly without your Audio Unit plug-ins, you need to find out which one caused the erratic behavior. To do so, put them back into the original folder one after the other, or a few at a time, checking after each plug-in or group of plug-ins to see if Logic or MainStage still behaves correctly. As soon as the issue recurs, you've discovered the affected plug-in.https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201199
