Anyone can share Logic 5.3 please?
« on: February 07, 2021, 08:57:59 PM »
Hi, I'm looking for the particular Logic installation image pre 5.4 which supports VST. I need it for OSX. As far I understand this was the last version ever released with VST support for OSX 10.2. Appreciate if somebody can share it here, please.
And, yes, I checked Logic Anthology it's not there.

Unfortunately, it only has 5.4 for OS X that I tried already. I need pre-5.4 for OS X.

Ask in the "Emagic.de Website archived" thread, someone downloaded the entire emagic ftp site and, as you will see, 5.3 version was an update.

I found the attached file. It is untested by me, and I'm not sure if it is a complete version or an updater.

Please advise if it is useful, if not I'll remove.

did 5.3 exist for osx? is it possible it was only ever OS9 + windows only? i guess it did according to the above post by macarone
they made it dissappear in favour of the 5.5 update pretty quick after its release it seems
5.3 dates back to September 2002

A version prior to 5.4 was requested. One person replied that 5.3 was only available as an updater.

I u/l'ed the 5.3 installer. It installs on a G4 or G5 running OS X Leopard or earlier. The installer says 5.3 and the splash screen says 5.3, but if you do a "get info" on the application, it says 5.2. I suspect EMagic forgot to update that info when it was released in Aug 2002,

The file is less than 16.2 meg. 

It does require the EMagic XSKey.

yea 5.3 was an update that soon got updated further to 5.50 / 5.51
but it would require the blue or white xskey...with a proper license of 5.0 yup
or a serial dongle.. i have a few serial dongle for PC..
i always wondered if i could somehow make the pc dongle work on a mac;) but thankfully dont need to worry about that because of the mac dongle emulator that works for 4.0 + down

wanting to use 5.3 to play with VST compatibility? well some people might have to use 5.1.3 instead or 5.0 will also support VST

Thank you sincerely for the upload macarone
I liked your post and upload , as I had been looking for that particular version. Need it when I swap Tiger out with Jaguar on my G5.

Iíll edit this post and add a photo of a XSKey aka USB Dongle. As soon as I get off my night shift, have slept and wake up again  ;)

OK... so I just nuked a bunch of unflattering posts, I would greatly appreciate if we can keep it civil here, I am not going to play mediator.

Every member here has value and is here for a reason; some members don't like one another, but such is life, so be it, I don't like a lot of things either... like cold goddam coffee, but I'm drinking it right now with a smile... the only words of "wisdom" I can say is the old proverb that if you have nothing of interest to contribute to the conversation, then better left un-said.
