Saving Preferences

Preferences are automatically saved whenever you quit Logic Express. The settings made in the Preferences window are saved in a general preference file, stored in the ~/Library/Preferences folder. It is named com.apple.logic.express.plist. Preference settings apply to all projects.

A separate preference file, also stored in the same location, is made for control surfaces. It is named com.apple.logic.express.cs.

Note: You can’t open either preference file directly. Any changes must be made in Logic Express.

If you accidentally or intentionally erase a preference file, Logic Express creates a new one the next time it is opened. All parameters will be reset to their default values.

To initialize all preferences (but not your key commands) directly in Logic Express
Do one of the following:
  • Choose Logic Express > Preferences > Initialize All Except Key Commands (or use the corresponding key command).

  • Click the Preferences button in the Arrange toolbar, then choose Initialize All Except Key Commands from the pop-up menu.
