LOGIC-9 Can i choose which SOFTWARE components to install?

Hi people.

Now don't laugh, but I am still running LOGIC 4.8. I am finally going to purchase LOGIC 9 to run on a second hand G5Mac (I am on a budget) -the purchase of which I am currently looking into.
When installing LOGIC 9,will I be able to selectively install only the software components which i need and only want to use? This will be beneficial for saving on MAC processing power.

I only need facilities for SEQUENCING / AUDIO RECORDING/ EXS SAMPLER and the TIME STRETCH facility -but no other SYNTHS / EFFECTS PLUG-INS.

I will not need -and don't want to use any other PLUG-INS. I will be using Hardware outboard gear for ALL effects / compression processing and Synths etc utilising a 24 channel SOUNDTRACS PC MIDI DESK for recording and mixing.

Thank you.

Logic 9 is not supported on a G5. Be sure to buy something with an intel processor.

It isn't supported, but WILL work on a G5.

However, you can't be that prescriptive with what you install. The only things you can get shot of will be the Apple Loops etc....
The Logic soft synths don't take up much space, and WILL run fine on the G5.

The ones that will cause issues will be Space & Delay Designer. These WILL eat your G5 :D

Thank you guys, that's lovely

I have just done some homework on the web directed by your advice and knowledge. I will just not use Space Designer etc on individual tracks to save on CPU usage!

Best wishes.
