View Full Version : Logic Pro 9 on G4 MDD!

Sep 4, 2012, 01:29 PM
Hey everyone,

The official specs for Logic Pro 9 require an INTEL based mac. That's funny - I successfully installed logic pro 9.0.0 on my MDD G4 (dual 1.25 FW 800), and it runs fine. I can get about 20 tracks simultaneously before the CPU overloads, which is much better than I was expecting. The G4 is actually significantly better with audio (by that I mean fewer overloads) than my old 2.4 C2D macbook pro, which goes to show how these old PPC CPUs are still pretty darn awesome.

Very good news, I must try it on my iBook G4 :eek:

Can't wait to throw this on my G5!

I bet this would scream on a G5. Mine died two days ago, so I'm back to the G4.

One thing to mention: it seems ppc support was pulled as of the first logic 9 update. I can't get anything past 9.0.0 to run on the G4.

I'm still using Logic Pro 8.0.2. Any major improvements with version9?

I have installed Logic. It won't update but runs fine. Version is 9.0.0. Soundtrack Pro also runs on G4, but it's still version 2.0.2 and crashes occasionally.

Nice, thanks for the news! :)

I wish I could get Photoshop CS5 on my G5. :(
