27 tracks hey that´s good is it cause you´re running leo 10.5.3? I´m still running Kalys 10.5.1. I have the same q6600 cpu and 8 gig memory but I get 19 - 20 tracks.

only 10.5.2 with logic 8.02

will try with 10.5.3 next week

So I guess it might be worth trying to uppgrade to 10.5.2 then. I mean 7-8 tracks more that´s like round 40% more than I can run and it just can´t be that an Asus mobo with a q6600 cpu is so much better than a Gigabyte with the same cpu on and 8 gig memory. This is more a test to se how much your cpu can take so mobos should´nt make any big difference. I´m also running Logic 8.02. Are using your onboard sound? I´m using a Saffire Pro 10 i/o FW card.
Any way thanks man I´ll have to take a look at the 10.5.2 looks promising for sure.

Ok sorry but slow down with that eye smiley, I think I read somewhere people getting good scores with the onboard stuff that´s why I asked. I see you overklocked your cpu could be that´s it.

you´re right............I didn´t realize that it´s not in my specs.

maybe better benches with onboard sound (didn´t try) - but never would use it because of the sound quality.

27 tracks here as well. Logic 8.0.2, OS 10.5.3, Kalyway on an Asus P5K, Q6600, 4gb RAM. 512 and 1024 buffers.

I actually had to disable my onboard firewire to get my Siig pci fw400 card to work properly (TI chipset).

Not sure quite how to work this benchmark. In continual loop I got 35 tracks to play for a period of time. Didn't play with any of the buffers or other settings.

This was through the onboard sound of my P5K-E WIFI mobo. QX9650 quad core at 3.6GHz

I also have a MOTU 24i, with PCI 424 card, but its not hooked up right now (in the process of moving).

This benchmark isn't exactly the right measuring stick for me because I only use real audio, and I have found that I can run as many plugins and tracks as I ever could unreasonably expect to use. A better test would be how many tracks of fragmented audio can I play with how many plugins, while recording x number of additional tracks. In other words, a combination of CPU and disk performance.

In any case, my hack is working well with the MOTU and Logic, and I can record and process all my typical projects with plenty of CPU and disk performance to spare.

I have a max of 23 tracks playing on a q6600 @ 2.8ghz running at a 256 buffer on a {censored} soundblaster card.

Two things i noticed though was that i had to disable the I/0 safety buffer in the audio prefs also in the activity monitor my most maxed out core is only about 75% where as in logic its touching the top. Tried with the logic script fix posted on here same results as without.

Leo4all v2 10.5.2 and logic 8.0.2

I spent a some time using this test in a q6600 (p35) + digi002, and well...at 256 samples, and logic 8.0.3 buffer setting in medium I can get about 25 tracks at the same time...but it stops after 1-2 minutes. The longest time without stopping were 8 minutes with 16 tracks. With the buffer set to "big" It never stopped playing, but I don't know if it's increasing latency too much.

On the other hand, I made the same test in a E6600 with AL883 in 10.4.11 and Logic 8.0.2, and at default settings (256 samples, medium buffer) It never stopped, so...it seems 10.5.3 still causes some problems in audio .

(spotlight was disabled in both computers)

With my own test for protools (almost 100% cpu usage) the longest time without stopping were 17 minutes.

I managed to install retail Leo and the Apple update to 10.5.3 on my old P4 3Ghz hack, incredible but it worked runs really OK. Had to test it on the old hack before moving over to the quad core. I´ll come back with new testresults when I´ve fired up my q6600 hack on retail Leo 10.5.3. People talk about getting pretty much better performance in 10.5.3 so it´s going to be interesting to see.

Tested with a Line6 Toneport UX8 @ 256 samples.
Same results as the others with similar specs.

Overclocking the CPU from 2.4GHz to 3GHz gave 3 more tracks.
Upgrading from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 gave 1 more track.

After I upgraded to retail Leo 10.5.3 I got 23-24 tracks so big performanceincrease well not exactly :( hopefully I have a more stable system though. Lost dual display though cause I had to go for natit for my video card, Nvinject couldn´t give me QE in Leo 10.5.3 and that´s needed to be able to install Logic. Maby I´ll se if I can change to Nvinject anyway now that I´ve got it installed.

I manged to get 38 tracks with default project settings on logic 8.2

my system is the following:

Ausus P5k Premium
8GB Kingston Memory @ 800mhz
Intel QX9650@ 3.6ghz (stock voltage, zelman cooler)
500GB 7k200rpm SATA drive

Retail DVD install, vanilla system with PC_EFI

That´s amazing you can get that amount of tracks out of you hack, got to be cause of the CPU
you´re using. Checked out what they charge over here for it and it showed the CPU alone costs more than what I paid for my complete hack and I have a hack based on the Q6600 CPU.

looks like that logic 8.02 is designed for new intel cpus.

i tried to overclock my q6600 up to 3550 mhz (worked stable) but cant get more then 32 tracks.


some {censored} things i found out, and i hope this is a logic bug, not a hack mac problem.

lets begin:
on my macbook pro i can run 18 tracks (both meters of cpu are full loaded, in activity monitor i have 185% cpu use for logic, sounds ok and normal)

same tracks on my hackmac at 3.55 ghz give me only 160% cpu load in activity monitor (quite ok i think)
but now i put more tracks, so in logic the meters got higher and higher... 32 is maximum without stop. when i look now in actity monitor
i see only 245% cpu use from logic.

is that normal? i tested some cpu burn tools and i can fully load all cpus without problems around 370% one application.
but in logic my maximum is 280% ( i got this with my own tests by using some minimoogs ) but more is not possible.

i understand that quad core at same frequenz is not twice as fast then dual core... but at the end i have 2x2,2 ghz vs 4x3,55 ghz. i thought that this can be handle minimum twice performance which means minimum 36 tracks for me. :)
