I have put off upgrading my DAW from OSX Leopard to Snow Leopard for a while now. I want to upgrade so I can use the newer features in 10.6 but mostly for networking compatibility: I need to sync files (mostly music, and sample) between my DAW and my MacBook Pro (which runs 10.6.8), and also the use of App Store.
I am concerned about breaking software, hardware, and VST compatibility. I believe most of my software and hardware have 10.6 compatible drivers. Here is my current setup:
Apple Mac Pro 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with 12 GB 800 MHz DDR2-FB-DIMM (Model Identifier: MacPro3,1)
t.c. electronic PowerCore X8 running Firmware 18.104.22.168 / Device OS 4.3.1f031
t.c. electronic Studio Konnekt 48 and Konnekt 24D running TC Near 2.5
Access Virus TI|2 running 22.214.171.124 beta
NI Battery 3
Wizoo Darbuka (which is no longer supported and I’m worried about loosing)
Comments please! Is the upgrade process to Snow Leopard seamless? Should I make the jump?
When it comes to your 'puter/OS and Cubase; I would say go for it.
When it comes to your 3rd party stuff. Ahhh! There’s the rub.
Why not contact the t.c/NI/ etc folks and ask them where they stand
on your possible up-grade. to Snow Leopard?
Odds are tho’ they are all busy working on getting
all their stuff ‘Lion’ ready.
I have not installed Lion yet because I too am waiting on
a couple of 3rd party updates.
Leopard was kool but Snow Leopard is ‘way koooool’.
Thanks for the reply. I was waiting for one for a while…
Yeah, I think I’ll go for the upgrade. I don’t think I have to do anything special to prepare right? Just stick the Snow Leopard disk in and proceed with upgrade. Also, I shouldn’t have to reinstall anything either afterwards right?
Snow Leopard is definitely a great upgrade. I have a MacBook Pro that I use for DJing on the side.
