Audition for the Mac will be for Intel-based Macs only. There are no plans for PPC support, and development has been focused only on Intel support.
I'll see if this is information we can have added to the Labs page, or at least on the download page. Sorry for any confusion, but I'm glad you're able to try it out on your iMac.
Thanks to both who replied!
Colin, yes, I spotted that piece when I went back and did more in-depth searching.
And _durin_, I really appreciate you taking the time to give official word and, as Colin points out, the information is there...it should probably be added to the main description like you say, but it is there. In my excitement I just didn't wade through everything before downloading.
I would put in a request to make it PPC compatable though -surely the added user base would justify the resource expenditures, if it's technically possible on the PPC. Thinking I could run it on my PPC G5 as the "one ring to rule them all, and in the DAW-ness bind them" was one of my main factors in switching back to macs as my primary DAW computer. Ah well. It's a great, wonderful product, and I'll use it any which way I can!
Thanks for the reply and feedback.
About your suggestion on adding a note about Intel based Macs (and maybe a link to the sys req's as well) on the main "Getting Started" page is a good one and I will talk to the labs web team and get that done to help make it clearer for folks.
