No after-the-fact automation...Snow Leopard?

Hey there. I just upgraded my OS, from 10.5.8 to 10.6.6. I'm running Logic Pro 9.1.3. I was trying to fix an ongoing issue, but I'll describe that again later. What seems to have happened since this OS change is a problem with automation. I'm not much of a keyboard player, so I often record the basic lines, then put the track in Touch or Latch mode, and add the volume swells, pitch bends, etc. separately. Now I can't do this. I hear the articulations as I play them, but nothing gets recorded. I tried it when I first switched, and then changed to 64 bit mode, but that didn't help. The reason for my OS upgrade was an attempt at resolving an issue with a couple of MIDI notes not being recorded by Logic. At first I thought the keyboard was the problem, but it makes the sounds it should, and when I try recording MIDI in Garageband, all the notes show up when played. When I hit these notes in Logic, instead of the little "note / note crossed out" symbols that appear in the MIDI section of the transport, just the "note crossed out" shows up. The actual notes, G2 and A2 do appear, plus a constant velocity value of 64. However, all this info shows up slightly later than when playing healthy notes. Maybe I should add this to the original post, from six months ago... Yes, I've been playing with sick notes for that long, usually transposing up and down the keyboard after recording, which seems like the easiest workaround, but it's a pain in the arse. One suggested workaround is to open in a different user account, which solves the dead note problem, but I haven't been able to convince the folks at Omnisphere to allow/enable me to open it anywhere other than in my main user account. Plus, the automation thing is still an issue "over there". Long-winded I know. Sorry about that. Please throw any suggestions at me. I'm currently considering another clean reload, which takes at least one full day, and deprives me of Facebook for far too long....Reply
