    Hi All,
    I am new to the group but have been using Logic for years now. I have recently had a problem with my PC running Windows XP. Logic Audio 5.5.1 has been running very well in XP. My PC has died and I have had to have hard drive re-formatted and new Windows 10 loaded as there is no longer support for XP. I have also misplaced my Logic Audio 5.5.1 disc so cannot reload software into my PC. I believe this versions will not run on Win 10 anyway. Does anyone know where I can purchase a copy of Logic that will run on Win 10?? I need to have the same features as I am used to in Logic Audio 5.5.1. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

    Welcome to the LUG Segio. While it isn't what you want to hear, I think the chances of finding a legal copy of Logic 5.5.1 are pretty small. Furthermore, the chances of running Logic 5 stably in Windows 10 may not be that high. It is approaching some 13 years since this last (and very fine) version of Logic for windows was released. It may be time to move on, either to an alternative DAW on the windows platform, or have a look at Logic Pro X in Mac OSX.

    kind regards

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your reply. Looks like your suggestion of going to Mac OS and dumping Windows may be the best option for me. I am so familiar with 5.5.1 having been using it for such a long time that I really want to be able to have the same interface and features. I only use Logic for midi recording and editing midi files; I do not use any off the audio features, so ideally if I switched to Mac OS I will be looking for a version of Logic with the same midi processing and editing features. Do you know if there are currently different versions of Logic for Mac OS to choose from?? I really don't want to pay for features that I won't use. Thanks and hope you can help me further.

    The current version of Logic is Logic Pro X 10.2.1. X, and is the only version of Logic that Apple offers. It replaced Logic 9 back in 2013. Please be aware that there have been many substantial changes to logic between 2002 when Logic 5 was released, and 2013 when Logic Pro X came out. So along with starting to use an Apple computer you will have to put in some work to re-familiarise yourself with Logic. I made the switch back when Logic 7 came out in 2004 (I used Logic Windows prior to that) and even then it took a few weeks to become comfortable with all the changes. One thing I would like to mention,, the package offered in Logic Pro X is IMO astonishing value for money.

    kind regards

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks again for your reply. That has given me enough to go on. I will do some investigating now regarding Pro X. You have been very helpful!!!
