Emagic has released Logic Platinum 6.2, the first version of its professional audio production software that is optimized for Apple’s new Power Mac G5. Users will experience a “dramatic” increase in both speed and performance when using Logic Platinum 6.2 and the G5, according to the company. Logic Platinum 6.2 also includes special performance optimizations for the dual processor G5 model. “The G5 is a dream machine for musicians,” said 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.”
