Thinking about buying now Live7 and upgrading later to Live8. Will Live 8 work with OSX 10.4.11 and will it be useable on a 1GHZ G4 Emac with 1GB RAM? Live 7 Demo runs ok but i think Live 8 will need more Power or not?
I ran beta Live-8 on a 1.5GHz Mac Mini with 1GB of RAM and OS X 10.4.11. It was as problem-free as the Hindenburg and I had 6-crash reports in one hour. The poor wee Mini's fan was wheezing asthmatically and we could all toast chestnuts on the computer's enclosure.
It has to be remembered that this was beta software and the bugs may yet be ironed out, but as things stand, our Ableton Overlords may have to up the minimum requirements for computers running their new software.
