    Default free compatible music software for snow leopard and lion (imac)

    i have a late 2006 imac and have been trying to download 'Free' music software which i can make beats from or even record songs on using condensor mics and all that but it seems that most of the software i try to get always tell me they can not run because they are not compatible with my computer .. is their any which are compatible with late 2006 core 2 duo imac running snow leopard or lion?

    Here's what you do, go out drop 99 on a controller. Right here, http://www.agiprodj.com/novation-lau...ulkaAtwH8P8HAQ

    Comes with a free basic version of Ableton. (you can always download an older version once you activate). Your in biz for $99. No such thing as free software if you wanna get in the game for real.

    Latest Garage band is like 5 bucks - easily worth way more than that!

    I highly doubt its your computer not beinig compatible, more likely not compatible with the OS - unless you have only a small amount of RAM - in which case upgrade it to 8gb ASAP.

    I would recommend an upgrade to OSX Mavericks, my old macbook (pretty much the same spec as your Imac) has been given it a completely new lease of life - and its free.

    Once you are upgraded, get garageband as suggested (free too) and the main soundpack/drummers for $5 - it is a very capable and easy to learn DAW despite it being targeted at the beginner market (being free n' all) - and gives you a seamless upgrade path to Logic Pro when the time comes.
