Is anyone running Logic 9 on a macbook white 13"?
      #1007269 - 05/09/12 08:39 PM
Just got myself one of the aforementioned second-hand on ebay circa nov 07' in pristine condition, very lucky.

I looked up the minimum requirements for running Logic 9 and it needs OSX 10.6.8

So if I update to Snow Leopard theoretically I can run it? Forgive my cluelessness but I've been out of the music production game for a few years now and will be glad to be back soon. If you are running Logic 9 on this setup, let me know how you're getting on!

Thanks in advance, Lewis.

I am running Logic on a white Macbook running 10.5.8. I don't do anything that taxing as I use my desktop for that but it runs fine. The main reason I guess you would need 10.6 is just to download it from the App store in the first place. 10.5 doesn't have access to the App store.

Thanks for your responses, no welcome back I guess I'm not remembered after all these years, hopefully I will be right back into things again and able to help others again soon. It will be interesting to see the learning curve again after a few years out.

Where will you get Snow Leopard from?
Its not on the app store as Mountain Lion is out

You will need discs I think

correct - you will need physical install disk for snow leopard. it's no longer available via apple but i think you can still get it from amazon or second hand.
once 10.6 is installed, you will need to run the software update to get the app store from which you can purchase/download logic 9.

s.e.

Same here but I'm taxing it like...Harold Wilson? Last project was 30 tracks, 10 aux, Logic/Ableton rewire, about 8 Waves plugs and more of Logics. The rewire crashes Logic regularly, sometimes constantly, I needed to bounce all but two of the midi instruments to audio, and bounce all the tracks basic eq and compression, but it definitely works.

Hi,

Snow Leopard is once again available directly from Apple:
