Apple's Emagic today released is required when running Logic on the G5.
Apple says that musicians will experience a "dramatic" increase in both speed and performance when using the combination of Logic Platinum 6.2 and the G5: "The ability to work on noticeably larger projects than ever before, including more software instruments, audio tracks and effects plug-ins, expresses more clearly than ever both the expanding potential of native music and audio production, as well as Emagic's and Apple's ongoing commitment to the professional creative community."
"The G5 is a dream machine for musicians," says Dr Gerhard Lengeling, Emagic co-founder and Chief Architect Audio Applications. "The introduction of the first 64 Bit desktop processor means a huge step towards 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 which require moving lots of audio data in RAM benefit greatly from the extremely fast new bus architecture."
