dual processor ZERO

Does OS 9 takes advantage of the dual processors in the new macs.
I don't mean dual on PT 5, but for instance running PT 5 on 1 processor and logic on another under OS9 , or is the dual processor thing only for OSX ?

It tries.
It's not very succesful.
And it only does it if a particular piece of software can take advantage of it.
Only X's architecture actually uses both processors in a 'useful' way (ie automatically shares tasks no matter what you're doing)

I understand, But since I have a dual 1.25 ghz. Can I run PT5 on the one processor and say Altiverb on the other, and connecting for instance via IAC ?

Any tips on how to get the max. out of my dual processor very welcomeheh

The only way to really get use out of dual procs in OS9 is if you're using Logic. In Logic, you can force certain things to use the "first" processor while everything else uses the second. Logic users have been using the "I/O Helper" plugin trick to force Altiverb to use the unused proc.
