    Can LS9 work on a G5?

    yes it can. It isn't officially supported by Apple, but it is possible.

    kind regards

    My copy will arrive on Tuesday and will give this a run. I have both types of systems to compare results, in case a partial install is possible on G5s.
    Stay tuned....

    Apple hasn't crippled Logic9 so it won't work on a G5, and it's still a Universal Binary (this means: works on Intel and PPC chips). It just isn't supported or recommended. Use at your own risk. Wear safety goggles and have a fire extinguisher handy! Sign your organ donor card! Finish your bucket list!

    Yes, that guy installs and launches Logic Pro 9 on a dual G5:

    cool so far. Let see how it works once you start working in it.

    In case an install on a g5 does indeed work, but performance is sucktacular...is it possible to have L8 and L9 coexist on the same machine, or is it either/or? Anyone found out yet?

    Yes, it is possible. Here I have Logic 7, 8 and 9 installed on two intel macs.

    kind regards

    I finally got to install mine on my Macbook Pro. I then proceeded to 'research' the installer requirements and nowhere I saw or detected an 'Intel' only path. This, in addition to all components being Universal binaries, clears the prolonging G5 systems a while longer.

    It's time to start saving though... the writing is on the wall.
