I have an iMac (early 2009) running OS X 10.6.8. I also have the corresponding versions of Logic Pro 9.1, Mainstage, Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Compressor installed on the same (with all their latest updates available for this OS) and various other third party VSTs and plugins for music-production. Things have been working fine so far.


I would now like to uprade the OS to OSX Mavericks and have the following queries regarding the same:


  1. Will my existing Apps (like Logic 9, FCPX etc) still work fine ? (Those are presently in 32 bit mode and the new OS will 64bit I believe!).
  2. Will the VSTs like Spectrasonics Omnisphere, Stylus RMX, Nexus2, ENGINE and it's libraries, Native Instruments Kontakt etc work fine as they were ? or will these require a re-install? (or should I confirm this with respective manufacturers!)
  3. There also are several sample-libraries, Apple-loops etc added to the current Logic Pro installation. Will the upgrade affect this in any manner?
  4. What else should I keep in mind before upgrading the OS?


Kindly suggest!



iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
