Logic Pro 9 still using 9.1.3

Is there any benefit for me to install more recent patches to Logic Pro 9? I am using 10.6.8 and really do not have intentions to upgrade to Lion unless I really need to do so.
Sorry if this has been covered in earlier posts.
thanks,

Check the release notes of Logic, it describes all bug fixes and improvements. Then you make your call.

Do you bounce a lot? 9.1.6 supports multi-core bouncing, which on an i3 should probably 2x faster.

Also: do a backup of your computer, that way you can update and see if it works for you.

Logic Pro 9.1.6 runs in 10.6.8. You don't need to upgrade to Lion. At the same time, having tested Lion for a couple of weeks now, it seems to me that Logic, safari and other apps run somewhat faster in it.

kind regards

To be safe you can make a copy of your Logic 9.1.3 app first prior to updating incase you need to revert back for any reason.

FWIW, I use Logic Pro 9.1.6 w OSX.6.8 and all works fine here.
While hearing that things may be snappier in Lion, I will not be upgrading with my present set-up.
No reason to change when everything is working great!
Happy Music Making... :hippy:

Hi Charlie

That is my experience as well, and one of many reasons why I haven't by any means burned my bridges, rather, am testing Lion on a clone of my 10.6.8 system. TBH, in contrast to Leopard and Snow Leopard, I was not that enthusiastic about once again going through the whole OS Upgrade procedure (which as you know can be very time consuming), but as mentioned, I am positively and pleasantly surprised.

While hearing that things may be snappier in Lion, I will not be upgrading with my present set-up.

No arguments on that score, clearly the priority has to be a system where everything works. At the same time, it is interesting to see what way things are going - not least of all to be able to converse with and help people here who may be having issues.

At some stage Lion will start to be mandatory for some apps - in fact, I believe that Avid Media Composer 6 already requires Lion. Logic 9.1.6 needs 10.6.8, I assume that some future version of Logic will need Lion.

kind regards

You are correct about Avid's Media Composer 6 requiring Lion. MC6 was developed on their Windows version of MC and then ported to the Mac. :eeek:
They did this because their Windows version of the software had 64 bit support, they then re-wrote parts of it & ported it to Lion.
I hear it is full of bugs, so far, :rolleyes: but in all honesty, it's a "point zero" release so, I'll give it some time... For a big post-facility like where I work, this IS a big upgrade. All 19 of our systems will have to upgrade to Lion & then to this new version of Avid. No small feat!
Still, the 64bit workflow should be interesting in that world.

And, I hear you on thinking long & hard about upgrading & all the time it takes to do it correctly... I'll hang on for the moment for as long as I can! :thmbup:

I'm interested to see what differences you see down the road, positive OR negative...:hippy:
