    Hi, How much free space do you have on your HD? And I'd definitely recommend upgrading to 8GB ram for use with Logic Pro X. What are the specs of your Mac Mini? What kind of tracks are you using? Software instruments? What effects? Have you done any maintenance on your Mac to help keep it running smoothly? [url][/url] :)

    Your Mac Mini can be upgraded to 8GB RAM, so I'd definitely recommend upgrading it to run better with Logic X. Get a pricing on Apple equivalent RAM for your Mac Mini from your nearest PC or Mac supplier. You need PC3-12800 4 GB RAM for your Mac. And make sure it's either Apple or Apple equivalent RAM. Don't use normal PC RAM. Your Mac/PC supplier should be able to check what is the correct RAM for your Mac Mini if you give them the specs on the unit. You can get them to install the RAM or if you're happy installing it yourself here is a guide on how to do it: [url][/url]

    I had some major issues like this after upgrading to X. I needed to upgrade osx at the same time as I was running snow leopard which was not compatible. After that I was locking up constantly especially when working on older logic 9 projects that were upgraded to X. Anyway I found I needed to fix permissions and do some mac tool optimisations (using techtool pro) on my mac drive to get my machine to settle down. Working like a dream now.
