    What version of Logic and what version of OSX you running these days? How's it working out for you??

    I have 9 and X on Mavericks and it runs like a massive pile of donkey turd most days!

    System spec.
    Mac Pro Quad 2.6ghz
    16GB Ram
    60GB SSD for OSX + Software
    1TB for Audio + other shit

    Anybody else getting this stupid GUI lag once the project gets going a bit?? Sometimes I can't click anything for like a 40-50 seconds when the projects playing :confused:

    I think i'm going to roll back to 9.1.8 and Snow Leopard 10.6.8 - apparently this is rock solid! Anyone doing this currently?

    What computer is it? The intel based towers are the best for logic. I have a 17 macbook pro laptop and if I have vlc and other shit running I cant use logic. But it does run very smooth with a lot of plugins

    4gb ram and 2.5 I5 10.6.8

    I have L9 and LX on both of my machines and have projects & samples piped in via Thunderbolt RAID:
    Late 2013 Retina i7 2.3GHz 16GB RAM
    Late 2012 i7 2.0GHz 16GB RAM

    Both run smoothly under Mavericks. There was a nasty issue with Logic's Channel EQ affecting the GUI of the main interface, but that was corrected at the last update. The only plugin that ever gives me a problem is DIVA, and that's because she's a bloody whore with regards to CPU when using Divine mode.

    I don't have any plans on updating too quickly too Yosemite, despite lots of impressive features. I tend to wait about 3 months or so for all the kinks to be worked out and for plugin developers to utilize the new SDKs as needed.

    I'm on X still a bit buggy but they've got some of the more annoying bugs locked down now
