Hello all,
I just want some feedback from anyone who uses garageband on a cube or a sawtooth. The apple website says a 600mhz G3 is minimum requirements, and I wonder if my 450 G4 would be considered equal to this or not.

Any feedback on how garageband performs on a similar spec'd mac would be appreciated.
Mac Pro mid 2010 12core 2.93, Powermac Digital Audio dual G4 1.8, Powermac Cube G4 1.5, Powermac Sawtooth G4 450, MacBook late 2006 C2D 2.0, Powerbook Pismo G3 400, 64GB iPad2, 32GB iPhone 3GS, 120GB iPod Classic, 30GB iPod Video, 15GB iPod 3G, 4GB iPod mini, 2X 512MB iPod Shuffle, Appletv 2 and still growing....

garageband performs like a pig, no two ways about it. it's ridiculously simple to use, is very mac, and in theory, supports the idea of bringing the iLife suite to a higher, more progressive level.

i love it, i use it all the time. but it will sit on everything around it like a drunk on a bus in rush hour. by all means, give it a go on the cube, have fun, but be prepared to deal with its quirk's, especially if you are using real instruments for your recordings. i run it on osx 10.3.5, g5 1.6, with 1.25g ram, and the omnipotent m-audio usb mobile-pre. now that thing is a peice of crap. but that's not what we're talking about, right?

run garageband on your cube and let us know how it goes...

Might work with enough RAM BUT Cube upgrades are cheap these days......and we're right nearby

What's your overall set up?? ( ram and drive )

In Australia and the web site is out of date.
Lots of good deals on Retinas, previous high end MacPros and current MacPro 6 core bundles in stock. [email protected]
