Submit Score

Step 1)

You need to be using Logic Pro X to add your score to our chart.

 

Step 2)

Download this Logic Pro X project and open it on your Mac.

Step 3)

The project consists of 20 instances of the EXS24 plugin and includes a Ringshifter, Compressor, Channel EQ and Space Designer in the plugin chain. The buffer is set to 256. Ideally, for the sake of being able to compare all scores objectively, you shouldn’t change any settings in the project.
The only setting you should check are the number of threads. To do so, go to Preferences → General → Devices. Don’t set it to automatic. Instead, select the maximum number of available threads. This will vary depending on the number of cores your Mac has (i.e. 4 cores = 8 threads, 12 cores = 24 threads). You should use all your cores.

 

Step 4)

Duplicate a number of tracks, and then play the loop several times. If everything works normally, duplicate another numbers of tracks, and play the loop again. Repeat this process until you’re not able to play the loop properly anymore, due to lagging, freezing or any other issue. When you start, you can hit stop and re-play several times, so Logic can learn how to spread the processing load in the most efficient way. If after several times you still get a system overload message, or the playback is lagging, then your limit is reached.
Your score is the last number of tracks where you were able to pass the loop at least several times without any interruption or lag.

 

Remember to be realistic. We all want objective results. If you think you’re ready, go to the next page to select your Mac and submit your score!
