Logic Pro (X) what os for logic x?

Rodney D

I'm still running snow leopard 10.8.1 (at least I think). Can I still keep logic 9 for my 32 plugins and download logic 10? Will logic 10 work with snow leopard 10.8.1? I dont want to waste $200 bucks if it doesnt work on my system...
The minimum official spec is 10.8.4
I suspect you have a typo, talking of 10.8.1 and Snow Leopard together....Snow Leopard is 10.6.x

I have read of some folks trying to force Logic X to work in 10.7 (Lion) but it's not recommended.

You'll have to decide whether to move to 10.8.x or not. I did it recently and it's pretty stable for me. Bear in mind that you lose all your Power PC Apps from 10.7 and above...

So I need to running Mountain Lion 10.8.4

Yes. You must be running OS 10.8.4 to run Logic Pro X

Will I still be able to use logic 9 32bit and Logic 10 if I which?

Yes. You can run Logic 9.1.x on OS 10.8.4. Yes you can have them both installed on OS 10.8.4 and run them independently. And yes, if you are running Logic 9 in OS 10.8.4 you can still launch it in 32 bit mode and run 32 bit plug-ins.

Is there any interaction between them? For example, any common support files that create issues when both 9 and X are on the same partition? Any interaction between preferences? Keyboard shortcuts? Export settings? Or are they entirely unaware of each other's support files and settings? I thought I read somewhere about a concern that X would wipe 9's EXS 24 setups.

I haven't seem any problems yet. That doesn't mean there aren't any. Just that I haven't encountered them yet.

The User folder is definitely separate for the two versions. One is in the User Library, the other is in the User Music folder.

I don't think the shared factory content is an issue, again, at least as far as I have seen so far.

Thanks. Looking forward to seeing the tutorials. That's what will help me decide whether I want this upgrade or whether I can stick with V9 for my purposes.
