Question Guys,


Back here again for some more advise. Now I know that really, I should be on 10.5 but at the moment i'm still on 10.4.11 and I'll have to make do with it for the next few months or so. Just wondering, the reason really why i got my powerbook PPC was because of music. I have had some good reviews that the MAC or any MAC is the way to go for MUSIC, mp3 etc.


Now with this said, I'm a little worried about try to connect my ipod classic 160GB to a PPC. not only that I'm worried that there is nothing out there as far as software that will be complatible with PPC. For Example, I have heard of cubase VST and all its forms and version. This week, I found a really good piece of software called Melodyne. For those who dont know what it does is it takes music files and I am able to change the pitch of any track or change the track down to a semi-tone higher or lower if needs be without damaging the original track.


Now the question is....firstly, will I have any issues connecting my ipod classic to a PPC, I know that i will need to upgrade itunes to the correct version but will I have any issues. Secondly, does anyone know out there which is the best studio software for PPC. Will I be able to run cubase or Melodyne on a PPC Powerbook G4.


Or is this a non starter as far as music goes. My powerbook G4 is 1.67mhz with 2GB of RAM....

    The best one! (we have several ...)


    Your iPod Classic will attach to your PowerBook just fine.


    Melodyne products won't run on the Powerbook, as they require a G5 or Intel processor.


    Cubase 5 is the last version with PowerPC support. Finding a company still selling the mac version is difficult.


    Anymore, unfortunately, you really need an Intel-based mac for more current software to run.
