    Hello randybarnes,

    I have a friend that has logic 8 installed on his powerbook G4 and it has serious issues with lack of processing. The G4 can simply not keep up with the program. I forget what GHZ he is running at.

    Anyway, you may want to consider a newer intel machine for your software. FYI I run a macbook 2 GHZ core 2 duo and get up to 20 tracks at 24/96.

    does he run a external hd with it .. im thinking of buying logic 7 and trying that with a 7200rpm 250gb external hd. i see that some people ran logic 7 with g4 power books if not logic does anyone run m-powered protools 8 with a powerbook

    I had a 1Ghz powerbook with logic7, does fine with audio.

    Underpowered for virtual instruments, and effects.
    Pretty much had to freeze any track with an instrument or effects on it.

    Now that I have a black Macbook, there hasn't been any need to freeze a track.
