« on: August 25, 2016, 09:28:02 AM »


its a 2HD floppy (1.44mb high density? i think) so im guessing this is a PC disk?
or was there an ATARI that took a High density 3.5" floppy ?

If it is an Atari version, then you are right, it can't be for the ST as it never had HD floppy drives.

It might be the PC version of Logic that is mentined in the (German) readme file in the 1.9 version zip file you have on your site. It mentions features that were fixed from version 1.73 to 1.9.
If that is the case, it's a very rare version!

Apparently there was also a 1.5 version (maybe only beta?) and that's what the word "update" may refer to.

Is there any way you could upload it for testing?

Notator Logic v.1.73 for the Mac is a program with some history behind it. Its origins can be traced back to the Atari ST program Creator, first released in the mid 80s, and Creator's successor, Notator, which was one of the most popular professional sequencers on the old Atari platform along with its main rival Cubase.

Logic on the Mac is significantly different from its Atari cousin, unlike the virtually straight port of Cubase.

On boot up,
Logic displays the standard Mac menu bar and a resizable window called the Arrange page which is the closest thing Logic has to a main window.

When you record some music into Logic it appears as a separate rectangular bar here, which is called a "sequence".

From the Arrange page you can select which MIDI instruments to use, change their parameters and loop, transpose, quantize, cut, paste, merge, mute, name, create and split sequences.

The Arrange page conforms to the standard Mac interface, allowing you to lasso a number of sequences with the mouse for fast work. The Mac folders principle has also been implemented here, allowing the user to put certain sequences in folders which can in turn contain more folders. This feature could be particularly useful for users with large midi set ups, but folders can also be used, for example, to contain the drum part, each sample with its own separate track.
