Yes.
In fact Logic 9 (up to 9.0.2 ONLY) will also run on it.
Well, the hardware is good anyway, at worst you might need to update the OS to 10.5 I would think.

The fact that on this Mac the Non-Intel CPU limits me from updating the OS even to Leopard. It's currently running Tiger thus my initial inquiry. I've been told by others that Logic 8 wouldn't even run without the Intel Chip and that at least is running Leopard. Is this true?

Thanks

OP, re your post:
[[ The fact that on this Mac the Non-Intel CPU limits me from updating the OS even to Leopard. It's currently running Tiger thus my initial inquiry. I've been told by others that Logic 8 wouldn't even run without the Intel Chip and that at least is running Leopard. Is this true? ]]

You can run 10.5 on PowerPC Macs.

There is a version of 10.5 that is "universal", will install on PPC computers.

I don't know if it's available from Apple, but you -CAN- get it, if you know where to look and what to do.

Thanks Fishrrman - If I can find the a copy of OS 10.5 will Logic Pro 9 work on on the PPC mac then or do I need to keep it to LP8?

Thank you,
JV
