    Simple answer: no. As per the system requirements here, Logic Studio requires an Intel processor which a G4 does not have (it has a PowerPC processor).

    You need a minimum 1.25GHz G4 PowerPC just to run Logic Pro 8 alone! You could run an old version of Logic 7, but personally i reckon that you would still have problems with that 400mhz processor! If you want to run Logic studio 9 your going to need at least a 2GHz Intel Mac!
