    Will GPO4 work on my Mac Pro Intel Xeon Quad Core?

    Hi there

    I am using Finale 2011 and would like to buy the Garritan Personal Orchestra Version 4 or maybe the Concert and Marching Band packs. Will they work with my computer:

    Mac Pro running Snow Leopard
    2 x 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon (I think this means it is 64bit?)
    4GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM

    I have my fingers crossed, but I suspect it will not work on my computer... Please help.
    Sincere thanks,
    Hercule.

    Sure it will work. Look at the specs of GPO4 at their website. I'm using a mac pro 2.8 12 Gig Intel xeon 8 core.
    Mac Pro is 64 bit

    Hi filmscore!

    Thanks for your help. I am confused because the GPO4 specs on the Garritan website say this:

    System Requirements

    Running Personal Orchestra is dependent on the speed of your computer. The faster the processor the better.

    1.8 Ghz Core 2 Duo MacIntel or better; 2.8 Ghz CPU Pentium 4 or better (single core CPU). Users report G5 PPC Macs work, but no guarantee as you will not get optimal performance.
    2 GB RAM Recommended
    3.5 GB of free hard drive space
    Hard drive speed of at least 7200 RPM
    64bit on Windows only. 32bit on Mac and Windows.
    Internet connection for download version, DVD ROM drive required for boxed version installation.
    Monitor with 1,024 x 768 resolution or better
    A sound card compatible with ASIO, DirectSound, or MME
    MIDI: A MIDI or USB interface may be required if you are using a n electronic keyboard (88-key full-sized MIDI keyboard recommended). A keyboard with Mod Wheel is highly recommended.
    High quality speakers and amplifier, or high quality headphones.
    Internet connection for updates and online registration.


    I assume that my Mac is 64bit? It says above:
    64bit on Windows only. 32bit on Mac and Windows.


    Please help I'm still confused!

    Sincere thanks,
    Hercule.

    This mean the GPO4, JABB3 and COMB2 Player, ARIA Player, is not yet 64 bit on Mac.

    Yes the Intel Xeon is 64 bit and Snow Leopard is mostly 64 bit (I think by default the kernel is still 32 bit).
    But Snow Leopard will run 32 bit (Intel) applications.

    GPO4 will work on your computer

    Yep. . . The Aria player (in 32 bit mode) works great on my Mac Pro 2.6 Xeon Quad (version 1,1) and Logic Pro 9.1.1 (using the 32-bit bridge). So far, it's solid as a rock and a charm to use!
