Hi, I'm new to this forum.

I was wondering does anyone no if the new Ibook intell machines. Let you use the G2 with logic? As an instrument. Eg. Midi Track.

I would really appreciate any advice on this.

I spoke to Nord technical support today and they said they have no idea.. Also it might interest you to no that the have no immediate plains to upgrade the G2 editor to universal binary version.

Thanks for your help.. Simon

The G2 Editor as such works reasonably fine with Rosetta ( which is the PPC CPU enviroment emulator used on the Intel builds of OS X ).

Logic will handle any midi device just fine, so the G2 will work as expected if you are using it like you would any other external midi driven hardware synth.

It is of course not unlikely that running Rosetta while pushing Logic to the max will affect the overall CPU performance and ram management. It is adviseable to shut down Rosetta apps if you are recroding to disk or performing live with AU instruments and stuff like that.

You should in general try to avoid any Rosetta dependant apps and tools when doing critical DAW stuff. This includes the non UB version of Stuffit Deluxe and similar stuff. Take care and only install universal code versions of video codecs and "system extensions" .

Rosetta does however work just fine and keep in mind that my suggestions are meant for your DAW workstation and not for that macintel iMac in the living room or the kitchen.

I am guessing you are not thinking about the G2 demo software ( which is a standalone software app). This one is not designed to work as a DAW plugin. It is simply meant as a demo of the G2 hardware instrument.
