    Re: Logic 9 intel only
    Hi mtec, It would appear I was a bit hasty in my reply in your other thread about PPC support. Apparently, some users have reported that Logic 9 IS Universal Binary. However, it is not advertised or officially supported. The proof will be in the pudding, I say. Also important to consider is when Logic becomes optimised for Snow Leopard, PPC support may not be continued... Furthermore if Logic 9 does run on a G5, does it run well? Cheers Rounik

    Well let's face it: The PPC Macs are so weak compared to a Mac Pro (or even compared to the iMac 2.93/3.06 GHz Dual-Core machines). It's really time for a change if you still havn't done so... Cheers, SpaceAce

    Re: Logic 9 intel only
    Sure, I agree. The Intel machines far out pace the PPC's... But I do feel for Education Institutes and other companies that perhaps bought Quad G5's before Intel's were announced hoping for upto 5 years of service. But anyway, I'm keeping my ears close to the ground as I'm very curious to see if Logic 9.0 is indeed PPC compatible (Universal Binary). That may have some interesting implications for when Snow Leopard is released... :) Rounik

    I would have expected Logic 9 to appear after Snow Leopard making full use of 64 bit... (Might come in handy for audio processing, too) On the other hand Apple might not limit Logic to Snow Leopard users Anyway I'll wait a couple of months before upgrading to Logic 9 anyway. Regards, SpaceAce

    Re: Logic 9 intel only
    Was reading somewhere (unfortunately I can't find the link :( that Logic is already able to handle some tasks in 32bit and others in 64bit... Someone was ruminating that even when Snow leopard arrives, Logic will still carry out certain processes in 32bit which will be more efficient than if it were to do them in 64bit. ... now if only I could find that link!

    [url]http://www.macosxaudio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=46699&p=362296#p362296[/url] Over on MacOSXAudio.com, we hear that Logic 9 does, in fact, run on PPC hardware, it's just not supported. FWIW.

    I'm no power user by any means, but I've got it running just fine on my G5 2.0 Dual Powermac. I know I'll need to change to intel sometime, but I'm hoping for another year from my current mac.

    SpaceAce I think its time for people like you to change your attitude if you still haven't done so. You not a success in this field just because you buy apples newest gear. That's a cheap substitute for lack of success. Try using what you buy productively and professionally. If your on here making comments like this, then you obviously don't spend your time wisely.
