Logic Startup key commands

There are a number of useful ways of controlling Logic while the program is starting up, especially useful during troubleshooting. You can make Logic start without the audio engine or without loading its default autoload song, stop it loading plugins which don't pass AU validation but that you have enabled, and enter various license keys to authorise or activate your copy of Logic.

The full list is as follows - the specified key must be held down while Logic is starting.

CONTROL = Don't load the audio engine & plugins
OPTION = Don't load any default song
CONTROL + SHIFT = Don't load any plugins which don't pass AU validation

COMMAND = Enter XSkey activation code
COMMAND + SHIFT = Enter XSkey authorisation code

That is some of the best tips ever. I especially love the one about having it not load the Autoload song - brilliant - thanks! Btw - using Safari, how do I do the RSS feed setup for this site? I'm not sure I understand how. Thanks for a killer site btw - I check it daily.

Hi, and thanks!

The best way to use RSS feeds is to use an RSS aggregator application.

I use NetNewswire Lite, which is the free version of the full NetNewswire program (

You subscribe to the URL of whatever RSS feeds you want (loads of sites have an RSS facility these days), and the program simply checks regularly for any new posts from your subscribed feeds, and grabs the new stuff for you automatically. Recommended.

Edit: It just acts as if just the command key was held - "Enter Activation Code".

So in short, command+option does not do anything special.
