    Just tested it and it works great on my eight core.

    On the benchmark before I was getting 70-80 tracks, after this I was able to get it up to 112.

    Will be curious about long-term stability. Especially w/ 3rd party plugs.

    That's the only reason I see Apple forcing customers to use this kludge workaround. (Though the poor souls who bought 12-core machines weren't any better off before hand anyways...)

    Ironic how Steve Jobs rags on other companies like Adobe for not having their s**t together when Apple's own professional app lags many, many months, if not years behind it's own hardware. (Final Cut Pro users are lamenting poor multi-core use as well)

    For shame, for shame...

    I don't post here often anymore, but I just wanted to say that on my system this update is nothing other than fantastic. The whole package seems so much smoother on my now fairly old Mac Pro. Just been doing a bit of comping and things have improved no end. I think there is a lot more to this update than meets the eye. Supposed to be in response to Mike that one! I think we have the same machine?

    No, the older Mac Pro in your signature does not support Hyperthreading and is therefore not affected by the problem with this update.

    While it wouldn't ended up impacting me, I have to say I am a bit dismayed that something as basic as the HT bug would slip past testing and quality control. Makes you wonder what else could have slipped by.

    Hopefully those departments still exist......???

    Unfortunately Firewire video is still not supported in 64 bit mode, although going through the list of fixes, updates, and esp. supporting my newly purchased 12 core machine, I'm quite pleased apple is showing this program some attention.

    I agree...but there is a fix already.

    Futzing with terminal commands is hardly an official fix. I'd say it's more of an untested workaround. (untested beyond a few users playing with it for 12 hours)

    Hardly a consolation to pro users, but then again, no pro in his right mind would apply an Apple "update" the minute it comes out.

    If you don't make your living billing customers by the hour, stay with 9.1.1. If you got time to "play" and take risks with your rig stability, then go for it.

    Exactly. I cannot believe Apple wants its customers to have to use terminal commands. I sure as **** don't want to.
    As for professionals, well, when a professional ap is released by a professional company for professional use on professional machines, then yes, professional users should be able to use it immediately.

    "untested beyond a few users playing with it for 12 hours"?

    It takes about 5 seconds.

    command + spacebar = spotlight
    type terminal + hit enter
    paste: "defaults write com.apple.logic.pro MD_AllowVirtualCores -bool yes" + hit enter

    Done.

    And also it is not so hard to revert by typing:
    defaults write com.apple.logic.pro MD_AllowVirtualCores -bool no
    No sense of adventure?

    Since it came from applecare, I'm not sure what's not official about it, and as long as it works, it works. Nor is it untested. Quad users have been using the HT cores for over a year (and it has been plenty stable), this just reverts it being disabled.

    Hardly a consolation to pro users, but then again, no pro in his right mind would apply an Apple "update" the minute it comes out.


    I see your point, but I'd say it makes perfect sense for a pro to try an update as long as the previous version is backed up (which literally can be done with one key command). If it improves things, you get those improvements, and if it doesn't you just run the previous version.

    I assume now that the terminal command is going to be widely used, the Logic devs may just make it a preference in the app. The genie is out of the bottle.

    Hey everyone,

    Just did the update to the machine and even with my little Duo Core, the HT was disabled. I applied the terminal text fix with better results. Instead of my songs crashing with a processor overload, the song now plays but the processor seems to be taxed more so than before. Using 10 AUs with quite a few FX (Kore2, Massive, Ultrabeat and so on) the performance it seems to be working alright at the moment. We will wait and see if there is another performance update.

    Core 2 Duo machines don't have HT in the hardware, so that setting likely makes no difference either way on your machine.

    HT is on Mac Pros 2009 and newer and i7 macs. i7 laptops have them (not sure about laptop i5) but I don't know if the terminal tweak enables it on those machines.

    Yep, HT is on i5's as well.
