    1. no kidding R McRae! Wish some other daw makers (hint hint Ableton), would get on top of some of the problems they claim don’t exist! Kudo’s to apple.

  1. I suppose it is a very strong software, going from strength to strength. But I use Cubase for Mac. Because that’s the program I started using since v1.8, and I never managed nor took the time to learn Logic properly or to get not new habits.

  2. I still remember so clearly all the people… Not too long ago saying Logic was doomed as apl didn’t care about it anymore.

    Would love to see a huge project running on 24 threads on the new mac. Still doing well on 4 though…..

    1. I never understood those people. I mean, Apple was issuing regular updates for Logic 9. They updated it often enough that it was clear that they still cared about the product.

  3. Have they allowed running 32-bit plugins yet? I’m still running version 9 just because of that pesky problem (and I’m really not into third party problem solvers). There are a lot of obscure interesting plugins for Mac that are only 32-bit and I want to be able to experiment more with these.

    1. For better or worse, Apple doesn’t put a lot of effort into backwards-compatibility kludges. Remember when they axed floppy drives and switched to USB peripherals? That pissed off a lot of people.

      This cuts off any incentive to invest in old technology, which is good in the long run, but it does force users to make hard decisions about when to upgrade.

      If you’ve got plugins that haven’t been updated to 64-bit still, they probably aren’t going to be, don’t you think?

    2. They’re not going to “allow” running 32 bit plugins, ever. It’s a 64 bit app. Welcome to the firggin future.

      1. it always confuses me that something that is as totally and essentially driven by forward momentum as the technology industry gets complaints from people that it’s not backwards compatible. Like wondering why they don’t still have a slot to fit my Nintendo cartridges into my PS4.

    3. I use “32 Lives” by SoundRadix to run my older 32bit plugs in LPX. Try the demo on your plug-ins to see if it works for you. It did for mine, so I bought it.

      1. By the way, forgot to add that so far 32 Lives has been MORE stable than the crappy “32 bit bridge” that was in LP 9 when I ran that version in 64 bit.

    4. 32 Lives dude!
      It just works.transparently too.Only draw back is that its expensive $100 but well worth it for me to use my 32 bit plugs or load a Logic 9. song into x with no surprises.

  4. I wasn’t pissed when floppies faded. I sat and converted everything of importance and I’m far better off with USB. I haven’t piled up softsynths; I bought with deliberate care. Moving to 64-bit will be procedural, not cataclysmic. I have safeties out the yang, too, as you should. I’m on my fourth Mac out of pragmatism, not elitism. I’m about ready to upgrade and this list makes me feel more confident that I’m about to get on the version-wave at just the right point. There’s also no sin in using Cubase or any other DAW on a Mac. I simply realized that the OSX-Logic integration was the best fix for fringe incompatibilities that bit me in the @$$ a few times. Boy, was that the right move for me. I like the fact that Logic is “smarter” than I am. It means my new problems always seem to have a fix in a drop-down window. You can pay far less for a PC, still have to drop $400-500+ for another DAW and pay a similar amount for the same equivalent power. Logic being $199 and a Mac fetching premium dollar has balanced out well for me. Don’t get in an auto-knot when a platform changes. Sometimes its a truck wreck and sometimes, it kicks you to a new level.

  5. 12 cores are around $6000 US
    Don’t know about you but that’s some serious bucks for most folks! Pro studios however should consider this though unless you normally carry a $2000 roll of twenty’s in your pocket then I say go 4 it!

  6. I think this is among the most important info for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. But should
    remark on some general things, The site style is great, the articles is really great : D.
    Good job, cheers
