With a simultaneous release date, Emagic released the first Logic version optimized for Apple's Power Mac G5. Version 6.2 update is a requirement when running Logic on a G5. All registered owners of Logic Platinum 6.x can now find this as a free download at www.emagic.de/support/download/lpx.php?lang=EN.
"The G5 is a dream machine for musicians," said Dr. Gerhard Lengeling, Emagic co-founder and chief architect of audio applications. "The introduction of the first 64-bit desktop processor means a huge step toward an integrated, computer-based native music-production system: one that includes software instruments, composing and post-production tools. As a musician, you will experience an incredible performance boost. Not only CPU-hungry plug-ins, obviously, but also those functions that require moving lots of audio data in RAM benefit greatly from the extremely fast new bus architecture."
According to Lengeling, many aspects of audio applications will profit from the new G5 frontside bus; for example, especially when large amounts of audio data must be streamed or moved in memory. This includes audio inputs and outputs, plus audio buses within an application's internal mixer. In addition, Emagic's EXS24 software sampler and all effects plug-ins, such as Emagic's PlatinumVerb, will benefit from the new bus architecture. Logic Platinum 6.2 also includes special performance optimizations for Power Mac G5 models with dual processors.
