I have searched high and low and no forum's seem to answer my question.
Like a really not smart person, I installed the free download of OS X Maverick when it first came out without reading reviews. Well, once the download was done, I went onto Logic 8 to record and every time I hit play or record, the playhead tracker moved across the screen covering my workspace in black. Once I hit stop or pause I could see all but this caused a very annoying and potentially serious problem!
So I went back in time machine to my original Mountain Lion and have stayed there ever since.
However, now I have software that I can't use because they are only formatted for Maverick.
Simple question: Will Logic 8 run off of Maverick or will I need to upgrade to Logic X?
I'm sure it does georgi but with limited means and the fact that I'm super comfortable with the DAW that I have I want to explore EVERY possible option.
I understand. I had terrible problems with Logic 9 in Mac OSX 10.8, so I wouldn't bet on Logic 8 playing nice with 10.9, especially since the latter has the habit of suspending unsuspecting apps in the middle of work, be it realtime-class or not.. Also not surprised about graphics issues. Too much Carbon in Logic 8.
I imported over 70 projects into Logic X over the past two days that were from versions Logic 7 through 9. No issues.
Logic X will open older projects (v7.4 and up), but once imported, you cannot open the new Logic X files in older versions.
I should mention that I am running Mountain Lion. Cannot speak to how that works in Mavericks.
