    Ok we've got a small recording studio set up in our school which has a Mac Pro running 10.4.8 i think... :S

    We have Logic Pro 7 and all the Amps, Mixers, Interfaces, Mics, Leads etc.. etc..

    I was wondering if I could add a second monitor to the Mac Pro, so that on one screen with have the Arrange Screen, and on the other we can see the Mixer and effects settings (like when you double click on a track and it brings up the Global Mixer)

    Look forward to your suggestions. (Btw It's a UK Mac, with a DVI secondary output and we have an old monitor with a VGA input)

    I don't believe so because you're sort of "mirroring" the desktop onto 2 different screens.

    It wont be a problem having two monitors, but it might be a problem having the arrangement on one, and the mixers on the other... If its in a separate window, then its fine, but if its just like a panel in the program, it wont work.
