View project information and reorganize memory

You can view the number of regions and other objects in a project, the number of different MIDI events, and the amount of memory they use, in the Project Information window.

Very rarely, a project may become corrupted due to driver or memory conflicts, or may feel sluggish. If corruption occurs, Logic Pro displays a warning message letting you know about the problem. These problems can generally be fixed in the Project Information window.

The Project Information window also provides the Reorganize Memory function that allows you to increase the amount of free memory, and to fix a number of potential project corruptions or problems.

Open the Project Information window

  • Use the Project Information key command.

The Project Information key command has no default assignment. For details about assigning a key command, see Assign key commands.

Reconfigure project memory

  • Click the Reorganize Memory button in the Project Information window.

When you reorganize memory, the current project is checked for any signs of damage, structural problems, and unused blocks. If any unused blocks are found, you will be able to remove these, and repair the project.

Note: Project memory is also reorganized automatically after saving or opening a project. A common (and good) use of this feature is to free up memory after closing a project, if two or more projects were open prior to the Close operation.
