Minimum Requirements
In order to use Logic Studio, you’ll need at least a 1.25GHz G4 processor, although a G5 or Intel processor is recommended, and required if you want to work in surround. A minimum of 1GB memory (2GB or more is preferred, especially for loading larger EXS24 instruments) is also required, and you’ll need Mac OS 10.4.9 or later and QuickTime 7.2 or later.
