So I was just reminded how awesome this is again after one of my sessions just crashed on me. Usually Logic is pretty smart about detecting crashes, and auto-saving a version of your session as (crashed), but sometimes it doesn’t do this for whatever reason. For me it seems to be 32-bit audio server crashes causing this (damn you 2caudio).

Here is a really cool way of using Terminal and some sleuthing to force Logic to do this even while completely frozen, unresponsive and it seems like your only option is force quitting and losing unsaved changes.

Hope this will be of use to someone!

Yeah it is so awesome. It’s saved my ass at least a half dozen times.

I think it works even if Logic isn’t crashed, so you can test it out to double check it works with your version/OS. Pretty sure its bulletproof though.

Thanks a lot. This should help when a crash comes. Btw, I assume everyone here is a Logic user, any of you tried Studio One?
