How do I cancel the leftover echos after I pause a track? I can mute the track but when I un-mute it's still there.

    bypass the delay plug in that is still feeding back. – Brad Dale May 16 '13 at 19:05
  • I don't know about Logic, but this feature sounds like I've seen it in some software (could it be Reaper?). – Internet Human May 16 '13 at 19:41
  • As far as I understand you correctly, you mean when hitting pause in the middle of the track, echoes, reverbs, etc. keep on going. This annoys me as well since a long time. Hitting pause for the split of a second is an ugly workaround. Nevertheless, @ARRAYEWHY, you should read the SE FAQ and edit your post (tags help!) also make sure to add more detail. Read other questions as a blueprint. – Julian F. Weinert Jul 28 '15 at 18:31

If you have a track with a long reverb or delay with lot of feedback which keeps playing after you press stop, you have to go to a empty place in the arrange window and press play.


You need to be more specific with your question.

  • Setting an echo plugin to overkill, playing through, and then pausing leaves the echos trailing almost infinitely instead of total silence. Anyway, deleting the instrument and un-doing seems to cut it but this was pretty annoying. – ARRAYEWHY May 16 '13 at 17:00
  • Go through source, insert & bus plugin chains and try to pinpoint which plugin is in a so called feedback loop. It seems that one of the plugins that you are using has too much feedback and keeps feeding itself. When you find the plugin / source that´s doing the feedback loop, turn down the feedback and the problem should disappear. – Ville Sorsa May 17 '13 at 3:34

Turn the feedback amount down.


I understand this question although don't know of a way to solve it. Basically the OP wants to bypass live processing in the channel strip when the playhead isn't running. . .

  • It's either a feature that's been implemented or then it doesn't exist. It's basically "kill all audio when playback isn't enabled". – Internet Human May 16 '13 at 20:38

    stop, then move the playhead manually to a new position? that forces logic to shut up if i remember correctly. – georgi May 16 '13 at 21:23
  • Nope. You have to hit play for a split of a second... – Julian F. Weinert Jul 28 '15 at 18:27

Turn the speakers off.
