Hi All! With the advent of Logic 9, the ability to use more than 4GB of ram and new affordable iMacs that can be loaded up with 16GB of ram(!) I thought it'd be interesting to provide a 'benchmark test'. It reminds me of one I saw on the net a few years ago and is not necessarily scientific in it's measurement :) Here's how it works: 1. Download this Logic project: [url]http://www.sendspace.com/file/ytx28t[/url] 2. Quit all other applications except Logic. 3. Make sure you are setup as follows for our results to be comparable: I/O Buffer Size = 512 Process Buffer range = Medium Low Latency Mode = Off 4. Press play and one by one select a region on a new track and unmute it. When you are not able to play the whole Cycle region without the overload message. When Logic interrupts playback write back to this thread with the following info: - version of Logic (e.g. 9.1.0) - version of OSX (e.g. 10.6.2) - Mac details (e.g. MBP, 2.4, 2GB ram) - number of tracks successfully played back (e.g. 32) Do Not add or remove any plugins or change the presets ;-) Ok, let the benchmarking commence!
