Logic 9 logic node requires separate licence?

    I just exchanged chats with an apple sales person who told me that if I were to purchase a mac mini just to use it as a logic node machine, I would have to buy a separate logic license for that machine. This can't be true.

    No, you definitely don't have to buy a second Logic license. Logic's "node" is a actually just a small app that you need to install on the "farm" computer.

    The main limitations are:

    No sampler instruments (UB or EXS 24)

    Third party plug-ins do need to be installed on the farm computer.

    The other thing to make sure of is you run the same version. I haven't "noded" for a while, but memory serves that as you get Logic updates, the node software is updated as well. For example, I'm running Logic 9.1.4 and my Node version is 9.1.4.

    I would add to what Eli wrote:

    While you don't need two Logic licenses, as Eli stated you will need to install any AU plug-ins on both machines. So there might be license issues with plug-ins (for example, if they are iLok protected plug-ins).

    it crashes!

    Did it work for you? Node crashes on my macbook/macpro!

    After I went to all the trouble of finding out which plug ins I could use with a node computer, I realized that only those which were not software instruments, in other words effects plug ins could be used on a node computer. Under those circumstances it wasn't all that useful to me so I didn't try it.

    If my memory is good, the Logic node only works in 32bit mode...

    You may be right. I'm still running in 32 bit mode because I have an older iMac that's maxed out at 4 gigs of ram.
