I spoke to a Mac repair specialist and he said it was likely to be a faulty gpu and I'd need a new computer.
Firstly, is there anything I can do to save the iMac?
Secondly, if not, will I be able to run my existing software if I got a Mac mini m1?
I have Logic 9, ez drummer, I k multimedia miroslav (1) and melodyne.
Any help gratefully received
I still have L9 on Snow Leopard on my mbp2010.
L9 didn't work so well crashed on Lion 10.7 for me even though I installed the patch.
And since Mac's won't run any OS older than the one it shipped with I can't install L9 on anything other than latest Snowy 10.6.8 I'm stuck on 2010mbp.
I tried to bring projects from L9 into LX yet even with legacy sounds there were many sounds that just wasn't ported.
And there are tracks I made 10years earlier on L9 i don't cringe at that's main reason I'm keeping L9 on Snowy 10.6.8 and stuck on my 2010mbp
Incidentally I don't have this issue with my latest windows machines as I have old cakewalk sonar XL from 2003 running on windowsX in windows7 compatibility emulation mode.
