Hi all - came across this thread after I installed Toast & Jam 6 on my new MBP Intel Core i5. All I get is the bouncing icon in the dock. I tried trashing the plist and reinstalling both Toast & Jam but got same result. I've been using v6 of each on my old MBP with Leopard with no major issues and Rosetta was installed during Migration Assistant so I anticipated they would work. But the new MBP has Snow Leopard and so far, the OS seems to be the only difference. Anyone else tried this yet on a new MBP or have any suggestions?
Also, whereas I've been using Jam 6 for so long, can someone give me a Jam feature comparative with Toast 10 in case I have to upgrade? I've heard that many of the Jam features are supposed to be there and I'm mostly interested in how cross-fades behave. The video on the website shows the features in action but I'm concerned that there may be a 10 second limit to the cross fades as the narrator says it's a default setting.
Read up through the thread and you will get some hints, but I will let you know within the last month, I have Jam 5.01 working famously on a brand new MacPro (quad core 3.33) and 15" MacBook Pro 2.66, both of course running 10.6.3.
I too had the bouncing icon. I think the problem is the installer is not compatible. Not the application.
So I think you just need to have a successful installation from a previous machine.
Drag over the old app to your new computer. Then from your user Library drag over the Roxio folder from Application Support folder and "com.roxio.Jam.plist" from the Preference folder. You can also drag com.roxio.Toast.plist if you plan on moving an older version of Toast (in my case v. 8.01.)
At this point, everything opened as per normal and splendidly.
All output was fed fine thru the Digital output which is connected to the main system in my studio.
In fact, the past 4/15/10, I launched the first new show produced entirely on the new MacPro system using Jam 5.01.
So it will work. I held my breath hoping it would and let out a huge sigh of relief when everything was working normally.
