    Sushi Logic on Hackintosh

    I decided to put my geek skills to the test and build a Hackintosh to run Logic with. Gave it a whirl tonight and so far, I haven't seen Logic use any more than 5% of all of the cores across the board. Logic never felt so good.

    Hardware specs? I've been mulling a Hack for a while now.

    This is what I put it together with:

    1 x Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon Quad-Core 4.0GH

    2 x CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin 1866MHz DDR3

    1 x GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD7 TH LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI 8

    1 x Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter

    1 x CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance CPU Cooler

    1 x EVGA GT740 SC Video Card

    1 x TP-Link WDN4800 N900 WiFI PCIe card

    1 x ASUS Bluetooth Adapter

    I already had hard drives and a case.

    Don't know why I didn't do this earlier. Both my geek side and my freak side were excited about this project.

    We built a number of them.

    Ran them for years.

    A slippery slope.

    I'm not saying they can't work well.

    It's KEEPING them going through various OS and third party softie revisions that is the real ballbuster.

    Hope ya like yer kext.

    Thought I'd revive this now, Slippy, since I've had a number of months and a couple of software updates with it.

    Having gone through the 10.5.5 update, it was a breeze one I got a protocol down. I keep a record of all of my kexts and daemons.

    The real test will be when El Crapaton comes out.

    However, this kind of stuff has always appealed to my geekery.

    When the studio burned I got Eva's Dell back from the insurance company along with money so she could buy a decent iMac instead. Took me 50 hours after cleaning it up to stuff it with OS X. I'm a stubborn sonofabitch. Just for the pleasure of watching a Dell boot up with a fruit instead.

    That's about how long it took to get this thing going smoothly - it was more of the case that because my video card was superclocked, it wasn't officially recognized by Apple's NVIDIA drivers.

    Which boot loader did you use to get it going?

    Why did you find it necessary to overclock the video card on a machine used for music production? Just curious....

    Don't recall. Finding a proper version Hack version was my biggest problem. Tested a few. Never got the soundcard 100% either.

    I was never concerned about the sound card, considering that my main audio interface is the Apollo. All that mattered to me was that it was recognized on the Thunderbolt port.

    Your Hackintosh has Thunderbolt? Are Thunderbolt cards available for PC?

    Thunderbolt 2 is built-in on my motherboard.

    Aside that it is not hot-swappable, all of my devices are recognized and it works quite nicely.

    I may be wrong, but I believe Thunderbolt was an Intel thing.

    My Mixes on Soundcloud


    With great monitors its easy to hear and fix problems but hard to enhance things that already sound good.

    With hyped monitors, everything sounds good so you don't hear the problems.

    With bad monitors, it seems easy to make absolutely anything sound better because you are really fixing the sound of the monitors rather than the sound of the recording.

    Seems like first version was an Intel job and second an Apple/Intel joint venture.
