Support For 8 Cores and Ram Capability?

So is Logic 8 abble to utilize all 8 cores of the newer Macs and access more than 3gb of ram for the EXS samplers? Or is this a Leopard thing?

Logic 8 recognizes all 8 cores.

It's mentioned on page 71 (I think) in the quick start guide under "Hardware"

This links to a photo from an Apple Logic 8 support forums member showing Logic 8 and 8-cores.

A member of said it supports 'at least 8' CPU's. I know from working with other types of multi-core software that there is a certain amount of diminishing returns as the number of CPU's goes up. Regardless, if you can afford an 8 core it probably doesn't suck.

The product info also says that Nodes can now run some, but not all, third party Audio Units.

I'm not sure about the sampler RAM limit, I have not seen anything posted about that just yet. Give it another couple of hours...

edit: beaten like a redheaded stepchild. :-)

If you have an 8-core computer I'm sure you will benefit from them in Tiger. Leopard will support more efficient core management so thing only improve for the lucky Octo Mac owners. Though you will have to move to Leopard to get these features enhanced multi-core support is new only in this upcoming OS X version.
