I'm using it now, but not for a DAW. I have OS9 on my iMac for ONE stinking sample dump utility for one of my keyboards - if they'd port the thing to X, I'd be more than happy to never see OS9 again.

Ive been using OS X for audio for the past 2 years. At the start I was using OS9 to do my multitrack recording.
At the time Logic On OS X had some troubles recording multiple track simultaneously.
So.... I would do my main tracking in OS 9 and then mix in OS X. It was a bit of a pain in the ass, but I loved working in OS X, OS 9 was so boring..... :roll:
At the time the promise of OS X was great, I couldn't stand by, I had to be a part of what would soon be a Kick ass audio OS.
Logic was the only thing that held me from a complete switch.
A soon as Emgic fixed that multitracking problem, I deleted OS 9 from my disk and have not looked back.

OS 9, who cares its totally dead.


Mixing - Logic Pro X | OS X 10.8.4 | 3.4GHZ Quad Core Hackintosh | 16GB Ram |

Studio Tracking - Logic Pro 9.1.8 | OS X 10.6.8 | 2GHZ Quad Mac Pro | 6GB Ram | Apogee Symphony PCI-e | Apogee AD16X | Apogee Mini DAC | Logic Control & Extender and Mackie Control C4 and a boat load of other cool stuff i use in my studio Static Productions

eh, os9....

hyperprism with recordable automatition.....os9 only (so far)
i've heard that they are producing AU version now :)

sonicworx powerbundle, still os9 only, and is going to stay so :(
stephan bernsee is going for himself though (www.osxtools.com) :)

i have a feeling that we will forget all those os transition episodes as soon as we get those 64bit for real...

I am so glad to put those OS 9 days behind me, remember when just launching Logic you could do nothing else on the computer, just watch it launch?!?!? It's been nearly 2 years since I was using OS 9 for audio, and before that I was using it for only audio, and using X for everything else.

My main machine doesn't even have OS9 installed.....However after mixing down if I want a reference CD I will go to OS9 to use Waveburner..really hoping they kick up Waveburner in OSX...so I can relegate that old machine to non musical uses...and just network all non musical needs from the older machine...like OS and Logic upgrades...

The ONLY thing I miss from the OS9 days is the TC Mercury-1 (which i mentioned in another post) I used that thing all the time. That thing made some amazing sounds that just reall stood out in your mix. Other than that little gem OS9 was just a pin in the ass. Memory Allocation anyone?
