    Yeah, I'd love to know if it actually manages RAM and processors better because that's the only reason it'd be worth upgrading if everything else is pretty much the same.

    I'm actually counting on it doing a better job because when I first read about the 64bit and GCD technologies in SL I bought a total of 10gb of RAM in hopes that Logic would use all of it better. Is this the case?

    Hey I just got Snow Leopard up and running too. Apogee Duet is working great, no problems. I too had to reinstall the interlok Extensions for Waves GTR 3 plugins (Native), got it all validated and running in Logic 9, so i guess its all good.

    However, the standalone waves GTR 3 toolrack isn't working for my side, couldn't get it to open in SL. Can't help but wonder if its working for you guys?

    Oh yea, Line 6 Gearbox seems to be incompatible with SL currently. Couldn't get it to detect my PODxt live. So POD fans do take note!

    I am going nuts!!!! I can't load Logic 9 update from 8 on Snow Leopard. Apple don't care, and are not giving me any support cos I live in the UK. When I try to launch the app, it just quits. What's going on?

    is your MOTU drivers compatible with Snow Leopard?
    hold down the key C while booting Logic..does it start now?

    Trying to re-install my Logic 9 (For some reason it's not asked for a serial for 8?) I'll try holding C down went booting. Then I'll throw my mac out of the window if it doesn't work!
  • immo Level 4 Level 4 (1,850 points)
    Whereabouts are you in UK?
    I could drop by outside your window when you throw your Mac :P

    Unless you completely uninstall Logic 8 ... it doesn't ask for its serial

    MOTU have new Snow Leopard drivers for all their USB and Firewire based interfaces. Make sure you download and install the new drivers first.

    Hope this helps.

    Alright I made the leap and just confirmed that Maestro and Ensemble along with Logic 9 work great. All of my plugins which are native to Logic from 9 seems to be working great with no issue. If anything everything is a bit faster. This is a must have OS.

    Re-Installed, held C. Same Thing. Nothing. Think I've thrown away £159. Will just have to use version 8.

    All I want is 64bit Logic, 64bit Mac, so I don't have to worry about crashes due to memory issues when I have heaps of processing left.
  • spidernook Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
    Logic 9 seems to be running fine with the SL upgrade but I can't get Motu Symphonic Instruments or Ivory to validate. Any advice? Should I just do a reinstall of these two and see if it works then? I went to the Motu site and installed the lastest updates but still no luck.

    If you are not aware of this new implementation and awareness in Snow Leopard....

    Some AU plugins have been able to work with Leopard 10.5.x if the developer has not updated them for Leopard or Logic Pro 8.0.2 or 9 compatibility and you can force them to validate, although the Compatibility column in the AU Manager for Logic Pro 8.0.2 or 9 will state "failed validation", they will appear and may still work in the Incompatible AU folder located at Inserts > AU Instruments and I/O > AU Instruments. My point is that if Logic Pro 9 is used with Snow Leopard 10.6 that the AU Manager plus Snow Leopard incompatible software awareness and implementation during install or migration to Snow Leopard known-incompatible software will be moved to a folder named Incompatible Software on your hard drive. "Snow Leopard also prevents known-incompatible software from opening. If you see an "Incompatible software" message, contact the software's vendor or visit their website for a later, compatible version."

    Although the Snow Leopard incompatible software awareness and implementation may be at application level some AU plugins require the Stand Alone Application to be installed into the correct folder during the use of the AU in the host DAW and this will affect the AU plugin from working correctly or at all whether or not you can even can force the AU plugin to validate with any AU Manager.

    BUT IS LOGIC 9 + 10.6 = 64BIT MEMORY ALLOCATION???
  • Priviledged Info Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    It has already had 64 bit memory allocation with Leopard and Logic Pro 8.0.2 or 9 using the EXS24 or now NI Kontakt 3.5 and NI Kontakt Memory Server.
