How did you install Logic onto your new Mac Book?
From the App store or from the DVD boxed set?
If it was downloaded from the App store then it should already be v9.1.8... and if it isn't you need to call Apple to help you sort this out.
If it was originally from the DVD boxed set then you must update using software updates....
If software updates cannot find Logic to update it then you either have...
Renamed the Logic Pro app in which case rename it back to Logic Pro
The Logic Pro App is not in the applications folder which is where it needs to be to be updated... so move it back there.
I had installed the 9.1.1. version of logic pro from dvd boxed set. The icon was in the application's section, named Logic Pro but I was unable to open it. I downloaded an upgrade from the Apple store but this didn't help either. I then looked at my App Store icon, clicked the 'Updates' section on the top row, and noticed that they were recommending me to install an update for Logic Pro, Mainstage etc. I clicked on this and updated successfully.
I am entering into a new world as I have'nt really got a clue about computers or software but want to make good music... So I am sure I will be back with more questions soon!!!
Hope this is helpful for someone.
The version on the DVDs is actually Logic Pro 9.0.0 (or in rare cases.. 9.0.1 ) which doesn't work with Lion or Mountain Lion... In some cases Logic then gets updated to 9.1.1 which still does not work correctly with Lion and Mountain Lion. (They both need Logic to be a minimum of 9.1.4 to work)
Then the new App Store/Software Update app updates Logic to 9.1.8 which does work with Lion and Mountain Lion.... as you found!
Thanks for letting us know....
I am running Logic 9.1.8 on Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have been really reluctant to move to Mountain Lion for fear of encountering problems with Logic after upgrading the operating system - I use Mainstage in my live set up..
I am on tour in April and rehearsals are ramping up in the next few weeks so I was interested to read this thread. I wanted to get the OS on my macbook pro (on which Logic is installed) updated so I could use the cloud. Question is , do I risk it ?
I wish I had more confidence that I wouldn't encounter problems !
There is an easy thing to try..
Get either Carbon Copy Cloner or my personal fav SuperDuper! and make a clone of your system Hard drive to an ext HD.
Now upgrade to Mountain Lion.. install your Audio/midi drivers for ML.. and test....
If it all works okay then great... If not, you just restore from the Clone image you made and you are back to where you started with the minimal of hassle.
Having said that, unless you have a very good reason to update to ML... (ie you need iCloud etc and/or need to use your Mac for other purposes apart from Audio and you want the new features of ML) then stay with Snow Leopard and the working config you have...... as there are no gains to be made or benefits to enjoy from updating to ML in regards to using Logic/Mainstage itself.
I have a similar problem.
I have a Mac Book pro from the mid 2012 running on Yosemite.
I installed Logic Studio (9.1.1) and it doesn't work.
I installed from DVD box set.
Logic pro is installed in the application folder and was not renamed.
Do I have to buy the new version again on the app store?
Thank you for your help.
Indeed.. Simply update to 9.1.8 using this link
