Hello,

I recently bought a new Windows XP machine, and loaded in Pro Tools LE 7.0 with mbox 2. I am working on editing the sound for a short movie. The system has started becoming slower and slower, and pro tools has started crashing regularly.

Here is what I mean by crash: during playback, all motion on the screen freezes, but the sound continues playing. Hitting stop does not stop the playback. eventually, task manager lists the program as "not responding." If I force it to end the program, a loud buzz comes through the monitor and I have to reboot the computer.

Even when it does not crash, I am experiencing slowdown of performance such as: when grabbing a region and trying to slip it slightly for better timing to the picture, the region won't move, or only moves in large jumps; unable to slide panning or fade sliders; quicktime picture does not move when sliding a region; when using Audiosuite for eq, it will only preview the selection if I make an adjustment to the eq settings, and then only play once and stop; when applying eq to a region I have to reselect the region even if it is already selected.

It crashes when I have a lot of tracks running, it crashes when I have only a few tracks running. It crashes when I am running a plug-in, it crashes with no plug-ins. I have gone through the troubleshooting list. It helped slightly, but within minutes the same problems started happening again. I'm hoping that someone can point me to something different to try. Please respond.

Thanks

Hello,

A bit of background first. I just purchased a M-Box 2 and am new to PT LE. I've recieved the error wanting me to increase my H/W Buffer size from 512 to 1024. I did. This error seemed to pop up after I attempted to playback. At the time I had a midi track and a single guitar track.

With the same session I also recieve the DAE Error 9060 when I try to playback or record a track. Even though it's fairly consistant, there are times that I can playback or record a track w/o getting the error.

I've searched the Digi site and read what little I could find. I've tried starting a whole new session, done the HD tests/defrag/etc and installed the PT LE updates. None of those solutions seem to work.

One thing I have not done yet is to upgrade my ignition pack plugins after updating PT LE to 7.1cs?. And speaking of, when I select "About PT LE" from the help menu, should it show 7.1cs? or will it just show 7.1 ? Mine is showing 7.1 even though I installed the latest update.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additional Info added 7/19/06

After doing more research I found this thread "General Troubleshooting - Pro Tools 6 & 7 Win XP " and went step by step through this guide double checking setings I had made previously and making some new changes that this guide suggested. I wanted to add more info based on these changes.

Where I posted earlier that the 9060 error was not consistant, I came across two situations where it goes away but then comes right back.

One was when I upgraded from 7.0 to 7.1. I unistalled PTLE and installed the 7.1 patch. No 9060 error for the first couple of tries (recording a track). But once it occured again, it was consistant. I upgraded to the 7.1csX. No change. Still had the error.

While I was reading this guide, I would make a few changes and in some instances stop and reboot the machine and try PTLE to see what change may affect the error. The only thing that affected it was " Delete DAE and Pro Tools preference files " and " Delete the Digidesign Databases folders for all hard drives ".

After preforming these steps, I was able record a track. So I stopped and started the record function a few times until the 9060 error came back.

I stand corrected, I just repeated these steps (deleting the requested folders), ran PTLE and instantly got the error when I tried to record a track.

Thank you in advance for any help you may provide. I've been using PT LE 6.7 with an MBox sporadically for a few months without any problems. Recently upon creating a new session, opening an old session, or saving a session the following error messages occur:

"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program:c:\programFiles\Digidesign\Pro Tools\Protools.exe
This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application support team for more information."

This message is usually in conjunction with an "Accession Violation" error message. I am unable to save sessions and Pro Tools will then sometimes shut down and even lock up the computer. I have tried the two suggestions in the Digidesign Tech Forum for alleviating the problem with no luck (trashing some Digidesign databases, operating PT under a new user). Below are my computer specs as reported by SiSoftware Sandra. Thanks again for any help.

Hi,

Im using a :
Compaq w6000 Server with XP SRV pack 2.
1gig ram (RIMMS)
2.2 xeon Processor
SCSI Hard drive for system drive and Firewire for reccording.

This machine is only used as my DAW there is no other software installed other than Pro-Tools and Plug-ins.

Problem:

when reccording with say 10 tracks the system halts with a playback engine error unless the latecy is set to 1024 !! Obvoiusly this is unusable at this rate becauces of the latency. The last seesion I tried had 10 tracks and the monitoring was sent out on sends to my headphone amp. There were no plug-ins being used at any stage whilst reccording.
The system is fine durring mixing and can be loaded up with plug-ins and it dosnt fall over.
Currently Im using the head phone out of the 001 rack to my head phone amp and the zero latency monitoring enabled with the latency set to 1024 this works but its not ideal.
Can anyone tell me how to get things to work on 256 latency with out the system hanging up ?

Iam about to buy a 002 rack but I know this wont solve the problem.

Heres the system info and the error :

The opperating system held off interupts for to long try incresing the H/W buffer size error 9092

This was with 512 latency.

I recently purchased the MBOX 2 with ProTools 7 and installed on my Sony Vaio Z1 (System Summary below). I plan to mostly record acoustic guitar and vocals with this system - so it seems like I'm not going to tax the capabilities of the laptop too badly.

The only problem that I have found so far is that the fan spins constantly when ProTools is running. It's pretty loud and it starts up immediately as I start ProTools and does not stop until I close the program, regardless of whether I am doing anything with the system.

This doesn't seem right and the fan is bleeding onto my recording, do you guys see any red flags that might be causing this issue? I'm happy to upgrade RAM, Processor, and/or get a new external hard drive, but I don't want to do that until I'm reasonably certain it will have some impact on the issue.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I have not slept and am about to rip the last of my hair out. First the error details, then system configuration.

Pro Tools will not launch. 6.1, 6.1.1, 6.4 with the Digi 001 all get the same *'ing blue screen of death before the grey Digidesign window even appears...and when I use any of the installers I get the same message, "Pro Tools LE requires at keast 384 MB of RAM in order to function properly. This system has only 490496 KB of RAM" which is really weird because 490496 is a 512 stick of RAM.

I am running:
AM2 Athlon 64 3500 Dual core
ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard with ACPI BIOS 0303
Updated NVidia bundled chipset drivers GeForce 6150tnForce (no SIS chips)
DDR2 800 RAM capable

Updated BIOS to fix hyper transfer issue to build 3030

Maxtor 80gb hard drive
Western Digital 80gb hard drive (tried each drive seperately, same result)
Microsoft Optica Desktop 2.0 wireless mouse and keyboard
Acer monitor, generic plug and play driver

I thought that since there were no SiS chips I was okay to run my 001 on a Socket AM2 Athlon(tm) 64...I hear people rant and rave about how well the Athlon 64Dual Core processors work with Pro Tools...what am I doing wrong? Should I take back my board and processor and go back to a 32 bit Athlon 3200XP? I don't want to do that...

I might be convinced to part with a section of my soul to anyone who can help me.

Well, for one, you're trying to use old outdated Pro Tools hardware and software on relatively new computer equipment.

You need to make sure that you have:
Installed 6.4 (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&itemid=4959&downloadid=26130&eid=0) Downloaded and installed the 6.4cs6 plugin update (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&itemid=4959&downloadid=25222&eid=0) Downloaded and installed the 6.4cs9 program update (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&itemid=4959&downloadid=25216&eid=0) (the first one qualified to run on WindowsXP SP2) Downloaded and installed the Documentation (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&itemid=4959&downloadid=26133&eid=0) Download and install the latest PACE interlok drivers (http://www.paceap.com) (also for WindowsXP SP2 compatibility)

If you're having trouble after that, you'll need to make sure you read through and try everything in the General Troubleshooting thread.

The onboard VGA is most likely sharing your RAM, is usually not recommended for audio machines, and is probably where those RAM errors are coming from.

AM2

Thank you spkguitar, but already done, and it’s a no go. I think the AM2 architecture is just too different than that of the 939’s. Since the CPU and the memory no longer share bandwidth (as they did on the 939’s) on the AM2’s, the software (Pro Tools) doesn’t seem to be able to make use of the hardware. I believe that an update from either Microsofe or Digidesign would allow Pro Tools to make use of the significant changes in the bus architecture, but I’m not going to get my hopes up.

There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the Pro Tools hardware in the system, my Digi001 and Audiomedia III BOTH pass the digitest. Windows Media player even plays through my Digi001. But clicking on Pro Tools is like clicking the reset button.

I hear there is something called a dual core bug fix from Microsoft…I wonder if this addresses part of the issue.

Has anyone seen a working Digi001 on a socket AM2 based system?

You need to make sure that you have:
1. Installed 6.4
2. Downloaded and installed the 6.4cs6 plugin update
3. Downloaded and installed the 6.4cs9 program update (the first one qualified to run on WindowsXP SP2)

You probably want to switch to xp pro. I do not believe Digidesign supports

I am getting the (-9093) Error: "The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs often, try increasing the H/W Buffer Size in the Playback Engine Dialog. (-9093)"

If I increase to 1024 samples, I get some bad latency. Occasionally I get this message: "Audio Processing is conflicting with other CPU tasks. If this occurs often, reducing the H/W Buffer Size in the Playback Engine Dialog may help preven thte problem."

Seems to be a Catch 22. Pro-Tools is unusable.

I get these messages with as few as 2 or 4 tracks and very few plug-ins.

My system should be more than adequate. I have 2GB of Ram and I am using a separate qualified firewire drive for audio. I have followed the steps under General Troubleshooting - Pro Tools 6 & 7 Win XP

Well, for one, you're trying to use old outdated Pro Tools hardware and software on relatively new computer equipment.

HOW TO MAKE A DIGI001 WORK WITH AM2


Well I for one would have LOVED to find out how to make my Digi001 work on an AM2 socket board through these pages, but no such data exists...well, after painstaking research, just before I was about to give up, I figured it out. You'll never believe me, but here is the answer to all you folks trying to make a Digi001 work with an AM2 chipset motherboard. What I had to do was straight up ridiculous, but if any of you out there are bound and determined to make your Digi001 work with an AM2 system, I'll tell you. Here is the system I built:

AMD Athlon(tm) 3500+ Processor (part number ADA3500CNBOX)
ASUS M2NPV-VM Socket AM2 Motherboard
SuperTalent (www.supertalent.com) 512MB 667 DDR2 RAM
Mad Dog DVD RAM Drive(had problems with a generic DVD burner, made stall on boot)
WesternDigital 80GB hard drive (system)
Maxtor 80GB hard drive (sessions)

1.
Okay. The thing that I believe was the biggest help was running cmd, or entering the DOS command prompt. You can access it by clicking on Start, then RUN. Enter cmd in the "RUN" field. I'm sure all you guys know how to access the command prompt but I want to be as thourough as possible. At the command prompt enter:

bootcfg /raw "/noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect" /id 1

You know it added a line to the boot.ini key because it says something like boot.ini modified.

That's the first thing.

2. You've got to update the bios to 0303. You can't do it with the smart updater on the board, I tried. Wouldn't see the image on the disk...dunno why, maybe you'll have better luck. I went to the ASUS site and downloaded the updated bios .bin file and the awdflash.exe program with which to flash the bios. You’ll need a DOS bootable floppy. I noticed when I booted up with the driver disk that came with the motherboard, it booted up to freeDOS and my C: was accessable. If you can’t get the .BIN file and the flash utility onto a bootable dos floppy, try copying the files to the hard drive root (c:\) and executing awdflash from there. You can access the root by accessing my computer then clicking on the hard disk you want the root of. When your bootable floppy contains your flash utility and .bin file, or you have copied the files to your system drive root, go ahead and boot to DOS or freeDOS with your disk. Run the flash utility. !!!!DO NOT CUT POWER WHILE FLASHING BIOS!!! YOU ARE PROGRAMMING A CHIP!!!

Basic DOS commands are:
dir (directory, type this then enter to see what files are in current directory)
cd (change directory), type this then a subdirectory (folder) followed by enter to change the current directory (open a folder)
cd .. (Up one level, type this to go towards the root)



3.
Alright…now comes the interesting part…don’t worry all you not to DOS savvy guys and gals out there…that BIOS flashing bit was the trickiest. And this part may not be necessary, I installed AMD’s 64 bit Processor Optimizer (supposedly a driver for the processor, downloadable from AMD’s site, search AMD ATHLON 64 DRIVER or something like that, or 64 bit processor optimizer. That’s not the interesting part…the interesting part is the bug fix from Microsoft. It’s not available on their site, you have to call them to get it. You can call them at 1-800-642-7676.

4. I also got rid of everything that I didn’t need. Firewire port, HD Audio, MIDI port, game port, LAN and TV out ALL disabled.

The only other thing that I changed in the bios was turning off the boot screen from the boot menu, and setting my primary graphics adapter from PCIE to onboard.


I also strongly recommend running msconfig and using selective startup as your primary system boot sequence after you modify it. You can access msconfig by clicking on Start then run:

msconfig

Click selective startup, then you can choose what processes and executables that you want to start up when your computer starts from the last 2 tabs.



The ONLY thing that I know that you need to do for SURE is the very first thing, editing the boot.ini. THAT was the thing that enabled Pro Tools to pass that blue screen of death that I was experiencing every time I tried to start Pro Tools. I don’t usually frequent this forum, just these past 3 days, so if any of you have any questions my contact info is as follows(and I only do this for Pro Tools people):

HOW TO MAKE A DIGI 001 WORK WITH A SOCKET AM2 BOARD

So in follow up to my earlier post, the Microsoft Dual Core Hotfix and the AMD processor driver, both UNNECESSARY. I just did it again to see just how little system altercation I could get away with. I installed current motherboard drivers from the site, left all that I could disabled in the BIOS, and deleted the display adapter driver (in my case the nvidia). I still had to modified the boot.ini, of course. (see previous post)

It continued to give me the blue screen of death untill I installed the PACE ilok driver update.

I still removed most of the unnecessary startup items from my msconfig.

NOTE: I could not get my Audiomedia III card to initializa on this system. Only the Digi001, and I haven't tried it with anything past Pro Tools 6.1.1.

So Pro Tools works great...processor stays cold and I have virually limitless plug ins, but I keep getting this damned message everytime I press the automatically find relink, ACCESS VIOLATION OCCURRED, then system locks up. Can anyone help me with this? Why would clicking automatically find relink cause ACCESS VIOLATION error message?

I have like 10 stereo 24/48 Realverbs and 32 tracks going each with eq and at least 1 other plug in...that's like, alot. Processor usage doesn't even go half way on the meter. Doesn't freak out or shut off on me anywhere else sofar, I've processed, bussed, bounced, you name it. It seems solid.

If ANYONE can help me figure out what the hell with this ACCESS VIOLATION upon pressing automatically find relink, it would be soooooooooooo great if you could help me.

Does it do the same thing for both your Mbox and your 002? Is this a new machine and have you ever run pro tools on it before? What OTHER software is on your computer, and have you tried COMPLETELY removing pro tools and reinstalling it? When I say completely I mean:

use Add/Remove hardware to remove Pro Tools, and ALL digidesign stuff.
Go to my computer--> your hard drive with pro tools (c:\Program files\Common Files and delete anything that says Digidesign or DAE (some versions of Pro Tools do not have a DAE folder in common files) Go ahead and delete digidesign driver, you will reinstall.

Then Go to my computer--> your hard drive with pro tools and look in your program files folder. There's still a folder called Digidesign. Get rid of it. Get rid of the other digidesign related things in that folder such as APCE interlok drivers (you will have to reinstall them.

I noticed sometimes driver issues can occur when switching between digidesign appliances.

You aren't trying to run them both at one time, are you?


Have you already completely uninstalled Pro Tools?

I think that will fix your problem. Unless it's a hardwar incompatibility issue. You may not believe this, but I had a CD drive that bogged my network card into stopping the processor sparatically. Try disabling ALL unneccesary hardware if the reinstallation doesn't work

I'm working on a project where I transferred over 8 tracks of audio at 88.2 and each song is about 4 minutes long. I'm using BFD to beef up the drums, and about 10 Aux inputs to widen things up. I have these plug-ins running:

Ok I've done everything in the trouble shooting post and I still get that annoying message: You are running out of cpu power. Remove RTAS Plugins or increase the cpu usage...........(-9128).
How could this be with only 5 Q10 Pargraphic EQ plugins which doesn't use very much cpu usage. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!! By the way i'm using 001 with 6.4

Hi everyone, my problem is the following: i've just bought the mbox2 and when i try to record or edit with de PT. 6.8 appears (all the time) the message "the operating system held off interrupts for too long. if this occurs frequently, try increasing the h/w buffer size in the playback engine panel", i've modified all de buffer size options neither worked. I don't know what to do, maybe the pc's problem, it's a pentium 4 2.66hz 1Gb ram with a mother intel d915pcy. Plesase help me!!!!!!!!!

I own PT 6.8.1 with a Mbox2 which I upgraded in may with PT 7.0 then 7.1.
Everything worked fine .
I haven't opened PT for a month now but 3 days ago, when I've opened PT 7.1 the following message appeared before launching the software: "violation access occured". I cannot open PT 7.0 or 7.1 anymore!
I've re-installed windows then re-installed 6.8.1: everything worked fine, but when i've installed again 7.0 , I got the same violation access message. What is happening? I'm in a hurry because I have a job to finish before 15 august and my session is in .ptf. Cannot open it with 6.8.1!

Thanks to solve my problem.

Updated question-
Is the Mbox 2 not buffered adequately to withstand the additional delays that are possible when used with certain chipsets and if so, can this be corrected with a firmware update?
Thank You
----------------

Greetings,

Well the good news is I may already know the root cause of my PTLE issue. I'm already certain by process of elimination that my problem is my chipset's compatibility (as hard as that might be for me to swallow).
It sounds like this is old news at this point. I just bought a Mbox2 Factory Bundle without catching the detail that the i925X chipset in my Dell XPS has a known problem. Fortunately there are many good threads with excellent info out there.
So after a lot of reading and troubleshooting effort I've deduced that I'm screwed.

I did try a couple of things I hadn't seen listed here yet and I thought I'd provide that info incase it could be of use.

I get the error to increase or decrease the buffers. Very reproducible with just a few seconds of playing back a single mono track with everything possible tweaked, and it bairly even registering a blip of bandwidth performance being kissed by the CPU, Memory, PCI bus, drives, etc.

I did try the external power hub. Didn't work. Maybe not the 'right' brand.
The one thing I didn't see mentioned was an internal card. I added a internal FireWire/USB2 combo PCI card. Still have the issue. But in my particular case it is noticeably improved to Almost be usable.
I tried plugging the external, powered USB2 (that will throttle down to USB1.1) to the USB2 port on the PCI card. With this I had everything removed from the motherboards built-in USB ports. My theory was I was moving the Mbox2 off the mobo (which I'm associating with the mobo's chipset) and onto the internal card, and the PCI bus. I figured this could possibly lead to future performance issues by putting more traffic on the PCI bus. But it was just to test this theory and bandwidth had not been an issue with any internal part of the system including the PCI bus.
Putting the USB hub on the PCI combo card just doesn't work.
In the end the Mbox2 plugged into the PCI USB2 card works consistently the best. I can sometimes play up to 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds.

Mbox 2, PTLE 7.1cs9 (Updated from 7.0 to 7.1 to cs9. Not recording to the system drive).

Just a side comment related to MCE. I'm running MCE 2005 SP2 with all the patches. IMHO Media Center Edition of Windows should be a non-issue if you know what your doing and happen to hit everything right with your drivers, etc (Windows being Windows...)
I've seen some inquires by people that just aren't familiar with MCE and the differences, and I just want to comment that if you bought a Actual "Media Center" (as in it's mounted in the home theater rack) and you expect to have all the media center features such as live TV PIP, USB remote control, etc. that it is not very realistic to expect that Digi Hardware/Software is going to be compatible with all the extra hardware and software you probably have loaded such as a TV tuner card and extra DLL's, drivers, etc. and still expect something like this level of A/V HW/SW to not have compatibility and performance issues. BUT, if you are not using MCE in that fashion and just happen to have MCE2005 as your OS because is was the latest out there (i.e. May be shipped on Dell PCs, etc) then in my opinion it should work. I have had no issues related to MCE or had to make any changes (SPECIFIC to MCE. That's not to say that Windows in general has been radically altered from out of the box. With all the tweaks because of troubleshooting from MSCONFIG minimal bootup to changing the cache priority, etc, etc, ad nauseam.).

Best Regards,
Derek

For those who don't already have the details of this issue and would like to know:

Model : Dell Computer Corp 82925X/XE Host Bridge / DRAM Controller (B1 Step)

Known issue:
Intel 9xx Chipset Compatibility With Mbox & Mbox 2
Digidesign's Mbox and Mbox 2 are not compatible with desktop computers with the following chipsets:

Intel 915G

Intel 915P

Intel 925X

915GL, 915GV, 915PL, and 925XE are compatible, see supported chipsets at the bottom of this page

Intel has provided the following information regarding this issue:
"The Intel 9xx family of Express Chipsets, including the Intel 925X chipset meets USB specifications. The Audio issues reported by Digidesign are not due to any direct USB issue, but appear to be a result of a documented errata (errata #7 (http://developer.intel.com/design/chipsets/specupdt/301474.htm) on the B-1 stepping of the ICH6, which is stepping of the I/O controller used with the 925X chipset. The B-1 stepping of the ICH6 controller is also used with the 915G and 915P Express chipsets. Errata #7 may impact devices connected to the ICH6, including PCI devices and External devices connected via the USB port, due to an internal arbitration issue that may result in up to 40 µsec delay.

Most USB devices are buffered adequately to withstand an additional 40 µsec delays, but some full speed USB 2.0 devices may experience underruns, depending on specific system configuration and instantaneous USB bandwidth consumption. In addition, USB devices that do not meet the USB specifications could also be impacted.

Details of the errata are given at the link above. The errata was fixed in subsequent steppings (B-2 and C-0) of the ICH6. The 925XE, 915GV, 915PL, 915GL and the 910GL do not utilize the B-1 stepping of the ICH6 and therefore are not impacted by this issue.

Suggested workaround: For heavily loaded audio solutions, the best alternative is to utilize systems based on chipsets that utilize the B-2 or C-0 step of the ICH6 component, which has been better optimized for heavy audio traffic. Also, although Intel has not validated a high speed USB hub as a solution to this issue, we are aware of certain 3rd party system manufacturers that are using an external high speed USB hub to mitigate this issue on platforms with the B-1 step of the ICH6 component."

Chipset Requirements with Intel Pentium 4 processors & Digidesign Mbox and Mbox 2 Systems
The following chipsets have been approved with desktop computers with Intel P4 processors:

Intel 955X*

Intel 945G/945P*

Intel 925XE

Intel 915PL

Intel 915GL/915GV

Intel 875P

Intel 865PE

Intel 850/850E

Intel 845/845E/845PE

*Also qualified with Pentium D processors

The following chipsets have been approved with laptop computers with Intel processors:

915PM

915GM

855PM

Other chipsets will be added as we confirm their compatibility with Mbox and Mbox 2 systems.

From Intel:

7. Intel® ICH6 Completion Delays

Problem: ICH6 internal devices or devices connected to the ICH6 may experience additional completion
delays of up to 40 usec.

Implication: No end user functional impact expected.

Most ICH6 devices are buffered adequately to withstand an additional 40 usec delay.

The UHCI (Full-speed only) may experience underruns and PCI may experience downstream
request delays. Both implications are allowable their respective industry specifications.

Workaround: None.

Status: Fixed in B-2 stepping. For steppings affected, see the Summary Tables of Changes.

I just recently upgraded my motherboard and cpu. Should I reinstall my OS? Could a driver conflict between the new board/chip and the old board/chip be causing the issue? I have been through and tried everything in the troubleshooting thread, I have also searched the forum and the answerbase, and tried their suggestions; but no luck.

Thanks in advance.

I just updated my PT (I'm using a Digi 001) from 5.3.1 to 6.4 and experiencing a few problems. Here they are:

1) I'm getting 9128 H/W Buffer errors very often when I try to playback or record anything, but I'm pretty sure this is just because I only have 384MB of memory (see system specs below).

2) Upon closing pro tools, I get these errors:
1) A fatal exception has occured.
Pro Tools must exit.
A log file has been written to...

when I check the log file, it says: "Access violation occurred"

2) The instruction at "0x0d8c2f2f" referenced memory at 0x00000051". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program

and one or two more errors just like the 2nd one but with different memory address number things.

I think that these errors might be from a RAID controller, although I'm not sure I had one since I went into my BIOS and couldn't find any option to disable it.

3) I'm using a USB 2.0 external hard drive to record onto, and I was wondering if that is advised against. I tried playing and recording files onto the same HD that PT is running on and I encountered the same problems.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Hi.

Having recently purchased an Mbox 2 with PTLE7.0 (winXP Pro) I've run into a bit of a snag:

As long as I'm just doing plain audio editing there doesnt seem to be any problems, but as soon as I add in a quicktime video track (for lip synching, post-production, etc...) I get playback H/W buffer size error (-6086). I've tried every possible configuration of buffer size, from 128 through 2048 with no discernable effect other than it takes a few seconds longer before the error occurs. I have disabled all startup, network, on-board sound card, etc.. to no avail. I've tried to implement all the solutions from other similar threads I've been able to find but have had no success in cracking this problem.

I start a new project, usually building it up from midi tracks, then adding guitar, percussion etc. I save the session as I go, and I also have the auto save feature activated. Eventually, I leave it, shutting down in the normal way.

When I come back to the project, next day or after a few days, before the session is finished loading I get "Pro Tools Application has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and offers to send the details off to Microsoft!!! I send them off but never get a reply.

I am usually able to open one of the backup files, but typically it is missing some of the modifications, plug-in settings etc that I have made. It sets me several hours work back.

The last time This happened, to a project I had spent a lot of time on, I ended up working on it the whole day, not shutting down until I had done the final Bounce to Disc. That worked, but I can't open that session now, without going back to a place where all the automation is gone.

Help!!

The response I am getting from Customer Service is that it could be something to do with Plugins.
After much experimenting I have narrowed it down to one or two...they could be contaminated. It seems I can use them if I only have one instance in a session. If I bounce the track to disc with the effect and then import the audio file the problem doesn't happen and I still have the effect I want on the track!

Hi I have a new Dell Inspiron 6400 trying to run PTLE 7.1cs9 with a 002R...I've tried everything I could find on the DUC (search for DAE 1115 and you'll see my post with all info) and answerbase but I still cannot get past the PTLE Launch sequence without encountering 'DAE error 1115'...I think my chipset or something may not be compatible...any other suggestions appreciated...

I'm currently running in my default hardware profile as I've almost given up on PT and have left it alone until I come across any new Info...

After much experimenting I have narrowed it down to one or two...they could be contaminated. It seems I can use them if I only have one instance in a session. If I bounce the track to disc with the effect and then import the audio file the problem doesn't happen and I still have the effect I want on the track!




I thought I would chime in here regaring this statment. Being the originator of the Allenstein Quadzilla Machine thread, and after helping many guys get their Quads up and running, just about EVERY single problem came from a plug-in. Once the offending plug-in was removed, the systems were 100% rock solid stable. The few times the problems werent plug-in related, were because of faulty hardware or a simple user error etc. Some of these posts I have quickly read through are definitely plug-in related.

I'm not even sure if Digi is aware of how much many of these problems actually stem back to plug-ins. I myself didnt realize this until I started the Quad thread and helped a ton of guys with their new rigs. We even had one Quad that had the very famous "Cannot Bounce To Disk" error. And guess what? It was caused by a plug-in!! Once the plug-in was removed, the owner had a 100% rock solid stable system. BTD errors, white noise bursts, system crashes, system freezes, -9XXX errors ALL came from plug-ins on the Quad thread. Every single one of them.

Do not rule out plug-ins for some of these problems.

The best thing to do is install PT, do the recommended Digi tweaks in the "Getting Started Manual", fire up PT and work with it for a few hours. Do not do anything else. Do this before you install every plug-in known to mankind and do every untested tweak known to mankind. And if your system is running good and stable, then make an image of your system drive ASAP using Acronis True Image or something similar. Then after that, slowly install your plug-ins and watch your rig fall apart. It will be alot easier to pinpoint the offending plug-in if the above method is done.

Just thought I'd share some experience from the Quad thread, as just about every single problem we ever had was plug-in related.

Carry on.

Hi

I keep getting DAE error -6 and DAE error -9073 messages about the DAE not beeing able to get audio from my drives fast enough. I'm running two SATA drives (on as my system drive) and one IDE drive, as you will see below. I get these errors when running sessions off my SATA drives, but if I copy the same entire session folder to my IDE drive (including audio folder) I have no problems, So I assume the problem has something to do with my SATA drives. (yet everything else on my PC runs fine off them)

Thanks alot, here is my system summary:

I have encountered a serious problem this afternoon, while trying to access PT I am getting an error message:

(The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the application. )

I looked at the answer base and tried the only option given but it didn't work. I have also tried uninstalling and re installing PT 7.1 but I keep getting the same error message. The other thing I am getting while trying to uninstall is:

(The following files did not self- register or unregister:
C:\program files\Digidesign\ pro tools\ DigiMIDIServices.dll
invalid access to memory location.)

If you guys can help me fix this problem urgently I would be very greatful, I am working to a very tight deadline and I can't really afford the downtime.

I am running 002 Rack with PT 7.1

johnj, You never mentioned which Digidesign hardware you are trying to use. Since I don't see a firewire interface in your details, I'm going to assume it is the mBox or mBox2. In that case,

Model : IBM 82915G/GV/GL/P/PL/GL Grantsdale Host Bridge/DRAM Controller


The 915G is not compatible with the mBox or the mBox2. Details can be found on This Page (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?langid=100&navid=54&itemid=23005)

hello. i was wondering if you found a solution to your problem with the underflow message thing. i have a mac pro with 2 dual core 2.6Ghz processors and 2 gigs of ram, and i get the exact same message after about 1 minute (sometimes less!!!) of recording or playback! just wondering if you found a solution...thank you very much!

I believe there is no patch for my problem (chipset compatibility). I'm just going to have to find another computer to use with the Mbox. Good luck with your issue.

Gary/gazza,
From the compatibility pages (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&langid=100&eid=170) (which are referenced on page 3 of the getting started guide):
The following are not compatible with Pro Tools systems:

* ACER dual core laptops



That is probably your biggest problem, because that is what you have.


There's also one other big issue that I can see with a quick look:


Physical Storage Devices
Hard Disk : HTS541080G9AT00 (75GB)

You only have one physical hard drive, and it runs at a speed of 5400rpm.

As per the requirements (listed on the compatibility page), you will need a separate physical hard drive for your audio files (an external firewire drive is recommended for laptops), and the drive must have a speed of at least 7200rpm.

With Pro Tools, you definitely need to make sure you are using a compatible computer, with compatible parts, and configured as per the instructions.

Hello...I'm having a problem with MIDI. I can record audio, also can control the MIDI instrument from my keyboard (a Casio CTK-811ex). When I hit the keys, for example with BFD, I can make the drums sound and the green meter on the track reacts, however, no MIDI notes are written to the track, even when record enabled.

Also, when I set up a click track it sounds for a few beats then just stops.

This is a new computer and I am a new user. I would appreciate any help and advice that might be available. I'm really looking forward to moving forward with my music. I've worked for a couple of nights on this issue and am at a standstill.

Thanks for your kind attention! I hope to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Guy

Hi I am new here
I have been using Pro Tools Le with an MBox 2 on a AMD 64 3800 laptop with 1 gig of ram and a 7200 rpm hard. I use a fantom fire drive 7200 as my audio drive. I previous had problems using MIDI with pro tools due to conflicts with the drivers installed from my Yamaha motif, I removed those drivers and got midi running perfectly in pro tools. I started noticing my tracks were not in synce on pro tools by using midi beat clock.

Most importantly
Recently I installed Reason 3.0 and an M-Audio Axiom Keyboard. When I went record audio from external hardware, I noticed that there was a significant delay when booting up pro tools. My laptops usually brings it up in seconds and now it took a couple minutes. Also, there is delay with playing back any tracks. All other functions of pro tools work fine. Should I reinstall pro tools or format my system drive, or is there a bigger problem

Originally I was having constant buffer errors on my Dell XPS Gen2 Laptop with a qualified cpu, chipset, and 2GB RAM so I decided to upgrade my workstation to a Tyan Quad system.

I initially got a D-Verb test of 148 D-Verbs over 32 Tracks at 1024, but I am still getting buffer errors in small sessions at 128, 256, and 512 though.

I have removed all plug-ins (Reason Adapted and the IK Multimedia plugins that came with the ignition pack) except the stock digi plug-ins, BFD 1.5, and Xpand and I am still getting the buffer errors.

I am starting suspect a problem with my Mbox2. It is less than a year old. Oh and look, here comes the Mbox2 Pro. Just past the nick of time.

Hi there,

I recently purchased a Dell Precision "M65 Core Duo" notebook, and I'm struggling to make it work with ProTools LE and my DIGI-002r...

The issue I'm experiencing is that during the ProTools LE boot-up the application hangs during the "Setting up peripherals" phase, switching on and off my DIGI-002 rack and loosing the firewire connection. ProTools eventually succeed to load, but then if I try to play/record a track I get a message saying "Problem detected with audio clock, check that your clock source and sample rate are correct"...

Everything works perfectly instead when I connect the DIGI-002 to my desktop PC!

In order to sort-out this annoying issue here is the list of the "workarounds" I did:
- Upgraded ProTools to the latest CS release (7.1cs9)
- Updated the PACE drivers to the latest version
- Deleted DAE and ProTools preference files
- Deleted the Digidesign Databases folders
- Disabled unecessary system startup items (with exception of the "MMERefresh")
- Disabled bluetooth, WiFi and the internal modem
- Disabled the multi-core support and the speed-stepping in the BIOS

These are the specifications of my notebook:
- M65 Core Duo Processor T2500 (2.0GHz 2MB L2 cache)
- 2.0GB RAM
- 80GB (7.200rpm) hard drive
- Integrated 4 pins firewire adaptor

Any help and suggestions are deeply appreciated!!

There you go, i bought a M-box factory and installed it on a none certified computer hardware. As expected it didn't work so i have upgraded my PC to a certified motherboard and processor models and it still doesn't work. It actually reboots the entire system as soon as i try to launch protools. I am getting very frustrated as i took a week off to have fun with this. PLEASE HELP IS NEEDED URGENTLY !!!!!! THANK YOU TL ALL

musicman06230,

You need to download and install the latest PACE drivers from www.paceap.com (http://www.paceap.com)

What version of Pro Tools are you using? This usually doesn't happen with the up-to-date versions.

Also,

You are only using one physical hard drive? The recommendation is that you have a separate physical hard drive for your session audio. You will want to correct that, or you will continue to be frustrated.

Hi,

I have 6.4LE and Digi 001. Everytime I try and install PTLE it tells me that 'The driver installer could not find the driver information. Please make sure the path to the INF file is correct'.

I have tried installing the latest pace driver, removing and reinstalling etc.

Muffleman, did you perhaps uninstall Cubase SX prior to trying to install Pro Tools?

Hi,

Nope, it was a clean install of XP Home. I had XP Pro 64bit on the machine, but wiped it completely and installed XP back on it.

Hello,

I am using Pro Tools V7.1 on a desktop PC (Dell dimension 8400) and Digi rack 002 connected through the firewire port of a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS. Alone, Pro Tools works fine. But I can't use my favourite keyboard midi editors with Pro Tools (01W Edit Pro and XV-5050 editor). When selecting Digi 002 Port 1 in their midi setup, I get the error (I translate in English) : "sysex midi in : a peripheral number out of the range of your system has been selected". I have disabbled many things : Ethernet board, Audigy WDM pilote... without any success. Herebelow is my config

Thanbks for your help

connected through the firewire port of a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS

That is most likely your problem. You need to be using one of the qualified firewire cards. Check the compatibility page (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&langid=100&categoryid=35&itemid=22766) under the Firewire Connections heading.

There have been many reports of the Audigy causing compatibility problems just being installed, let alone actually connecting to it's firewire connection.

I am running PTLE 6.7r2 with a digi 002 mixing console. I also have a Motif ES88 that I'm having trouble integrating.

first of all, I get a few error messages, when I load PT. the first one has to do with OMS. I can't remember what OMS is, but i'm sure it's important, haha. the message says: "an error occured (-1)while initializing oms. You may continue without oms functionality."

the second one says:"the digi 002 has system firmware version v1.04 which does not match the current system firmware version v1.21. would you like to download the current version? please note, on some computers this may take as long as 10 minutes." (I don't know what the heck that is all about, but I would be happy to just click on download, if that computer was connected to the internet. However, I must use this laptop to connect, and I don't know where to go to download it, what to actually download, or how to install it).

anyways, after that, it loads up to a blank session. My major issue here, is getting my Motif es hooked up, so I can get to work on some projects. I went into the "setup midi studio" window, and tried to select it from the list, but the motif is not there. I talked to the guys at yamaha, and they told me to download the midnam file, which i just did, but i have not been back to the studio to install it. do I need to do anything special there?

I don't think that will really effect much other than having the patch names at my disposal. I think the main thing is figuring out how to properly route the thing. I have it connected by two midi cables. In to out - out to in. (the yamaha guy said i may to have 'in to in' 'out to out' but I don't think so...) I have the motif set up to transmit the signal through the midi ports, which the yamaha guy said was all i would have to do on the motif side of things. he recommended that I get the thing properly routed, and figure out what I'm supposed to do with the speakers, but I'll get to that in a moment. I've tried to play around with the routing in the midi tracks in PT, but I can't seem to get anywhere. I see two different drop menus to select from... i dunno. I'm ashamed to say that I may require a step by step process with that. does this have anything to do with the OMS? I saw in the motif documentation that I may be able to import the motif oms from it's driver disc. from what I gathered, this is supposed to be some kind of midi studio set up for the motif, which I can import in PT's "setup midi studio" window. Is that right?

also, the yamaha guy told me I may have to connect the monitors to receive signal directly from the motif, unless the digi 002 has it's own sound generator. that seems kinda dumb, but it makes some sense, since the motif is only transmitting data to PT, then PT tells it what sounds to play at which time, instead of playing them itself. but what about vocals? I know that isn't right. I have the speakers connected to the digi 002. can't i set up an aux track? I think I remember something like that from school. (full sail, but it's been a while).

ok, i know this may be elementary to any guru who may be reading this, but it took me a long time to raise the money for this stuff, so some of the stuff from school may have left the building. I just wanna get the stuff set up, and I should be pretty good from there, and just relearn as I go. whoever responds to this, thank you for your help.

This is a known incompatibility with the Yamaha drivers. Try uninstalling and/or reinstalling the yamaha driver.

The "download" is from your computer to the 002 hardware; has nothing to do with the internet.

Start with those two solutions...

Hello -

I've gone through all of the steps in the user guide and all of the steps in the troubleshooting guide here: http://duc.digidesign.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=802377&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=7&fpart=1#802377
including disabling duo core, updating PACE drivers.

I'm using a Digi002 With ProTools LE 6.4cs9

The most common error is H/W Buffer Size, increase playback engine -6089. When I increase it tells me to decrease.

From time to time the program also freezes when launching DAE controllers.

Thanks for your help in advance.

thank you for your reply.

Once I've posted this, I will try your advice, and see how it goes.

I am also going to try and pull the OMS from the yamaha driver disc and see if that gives me any help with the midi studio setup for that instrument.

also, I will see about installing the midnam file I downloaded for the motif es, and see if that will give me the patch names needed, even though it is somewhat inconsequential.

What about the speakers? This thought woke me up this morning: If I set up an aux input track to receive signal via 1/4" from the motif's audio outputs, I should be able to monitor the playback of the motif, while it is simultaneously transferring midi information via the midi cables, correct? Then, all I should have to do, is properly route the midi tracks, and make sure the aux input is set up correctly? I will have to go purchase more 1/4" cables if that is the case, so I would like to know if this solution will solve some of the problem.

thanks again for your help.

The 250GB drive is the system drive. I have tried to playback from both drives and have been unsuccessful on this machine. The odd thing is the smaller drive that you mention has been successfully running ProTools in another machine on it's own for about a year now. I bought this machine that I'm having the problems with as an upgrade.

This isn't one of the recommended cards. If there's no other problem areas in the config, I'll probably start by replacing the firewire card and then if that doesn't fix it I'll buy a faster secondary HD.

great.

I'm getting closer. Your advice worked to some degree. I uninstalled the drivers for the Yamaha motif, and reinstalled them. However, the drivers are merely to transmit midi data through the USB Port. Understantably, the computer would not recognize the motif, until I switched it to transmit via usb, and hooked it up. Therefore, the solution would only work if I had the motif set up to transmit through USB. I tried it out. I loaded protools, and had no OMS error message. The firmware message popped up, and I clicked download. It took a few minutes, but went through just fine. Once it was done, i closed it, and reloaded protools with NO error messages. I pulled up the session I have been working on.

In the edit window, under the i/o section for each track, there are two boxes. The second box read Yamaha 1-2. I clicked on it, and here were the options:

None or Predefined

under predefined i have the following. each with options ranging 1-16:
------------------
SB Sudigy DirectMusic Synthesizer [A800]
Digidesign Digi 002 port 1 [Emulated]
Digidesign Digi 002 port 2 [Emulated]
Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth [Emulated]
Microsoft MIDI Mapper [Emulated]
SB Audigy MIDI I/O 2 [A800] [Emulated]
SB Audigy MIDI I/O [A800] [Emulated]
SB Audigy SW Synth [A800] [Emulated]
SB Audigy Synth A [A800] [Emulated]
SB Audigy Synth B [A800] [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-1 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-2 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-3 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-4 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-5 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-6 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-7 [Emulated]
Yamaha USB Out 0-8 [Emulated]
-----------------------

I edited the Digidesign device list to reflect the motif as an option. I also pasted the midnam file I downloaded into the proper folder. Everything there should be fine. I switched the Motif back to transmit via MIDI, and loaded Pro Tools. As I suspected, the OMS error message (-1) Popped up again. There was no firmware message.

I opened up the 'setup midi studio' screen, and selected the motif from the model list. also, there are some other options here, which i wanted to make sure i had correct.
-----------
Input Port: Digidesign Digi 002 port 1
Output Port: Digidesign Digi 002 Port 2 [Emulated]
Send channels: 9-16
receive channels: 1-8
(something tells me I should have all of the channels enabled on both 'send' and 'receive')
-----------------

Now, the options for I/O settings are a little different. For a Midi track, the input options give me 3 boxes: 'All', 'Motif ES', or 'Predefined'
---'Motif ES' input and output options reflect the settings from the 'setup midi studio' screen, but when I select any specific channel other than (Motif ES > ALL), it just reverts back to 'All'.
---'Predefined' now gives me fewer options:
SB Audigy MIDI I/O 2 [A800]
SB Audigy MIDI I/O [A800]
I can easily select any of these predefined options, but I'm not interested in that.

I selected for the first box, which I'm assuming is the input:
'Motif ES' (All)
the second box, which I'm assuming is the output:
'Motif ES' (1)

I record-armed the track, and played a few notes on my motif, and was able to see some action on the track's meter gauge.

Of course, I don't hear any sound, but we already established why. I hit record, play in the transport section and received an error message: "Operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs often, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the playback engine (-9093). I tried that, but then it displays another message, after I try to record again, saying the opposite...that I need to decrease the H/W Buffer size. (Catch 22 it seems)

Here's the other thing. I have a master track, and Aux Track, and an Audio Track.
Each of them have "Analog 1-2" selected in the 2nd box under the I/O section, which I'm assuming is the output. there are no other options other than no output.

there's a little fader button that I clicked on, which of course brought that track as an individual fader from the mixing window, i guess. under the second box, again, it read "Main Out (Analog 1-2)"

By the way, I know how to save screen shots, but not how to paste them in here. Is that possible? It would make the explanation of these windows a little easier to understand for you, haha.

Anyways, I'm gonna run off, and get the 1/4" cables to connect from the motif to the digi 002. What settings would I need to make to the other tracks to get everything going?

I guess at this point I just need a little walkthrough for the routing of the tracks, and to figure out what to do with the H/W buffer.

thanks again for all of your help.

hey

I bought this new high spec laptop from dell: dual core inspiron6400 1024 mb ram and a 7200 rpm disk. (Using Mbox)

I've tried pt 6.9 and 7.0 and both are giving me messages about the hd buffer size and messages that pro tools is conflicting with other cpu tasks even when the session is a new one and im trying to record just one track. any one got a solution to this???

Even in windows playin standard audio files with media player the sound cuts and skips.
(I guess this is an other problem concernion the wave/asio driver)

I heard that i can fix the main problem by turning one cpu off. (That's not a real solution to me)
But some users can run pro tools using both processors without any problems.

So is the Problem caused by my chipset? Is my chipset not compatible with Pro tools? Or will an upgrade to a higher version of pro tools solve the problem?
If not, i have the chance to return my laptop to the store within 14 days.

So please tell me anything you know about this problem.

Thx alot

Hi....

I got Mbox2 with ProTools 7 LE and Im having probs with saving my PT 7 as a copy to lower versions of PT...... A message comes up "Could not save a copy in NAME because Assertion in "\code\aztec_Staley\AlturaPorts\PT4_App\PTSess_XC line 1127 ""

And almost the same message if Im trying to Bounce to disk ... After the play back of a region ( doesnt matter how long it is ) same message comes up..."Could not complete the Bounce To DIsk command because Assertion in \code\aztec_Staley\AlturaPorts\NewFileLibs\Ft\Audi o\FF_Aud line 33 "

Also, I have a Fastory Bundle plug-ins that came with my MBOX2 Factory Bundle and when I install the plug-ins and start up ProTools ( with my iLok ), PT starts up, but freezes up on 1 of the plug-ins that Ive installed with the Factrory Bundle. After that I tryed to restart PT, but it does the same thing, so the only way I could open up PT is to Uninstall the Factrory Bundle Plug-Ins....!

If any1 have any tips to solve these probs .....
Please heeeelllppppp......!

Tx in advance....!

Hi,

I'm trying to connect my EMU proteus 1000 sound module (hardware) to protools. I did it before with version 6 and now I can't get it to work.

I have PT 7/DIGI 002 rack on windows XP SP2.

What I'm doing: I've connected (and checked ;o) the module midi in and out to my 002, I've configured the midi studio with the midnam file. I've imported the midi file to my session and the info is reaching my proteus (I can here the midi file in my proteus with headphones), but I can't get it going back to PT (cables are ok, BTW)

I'm trying to get it working using both midi and instrument tracks and nothing.

Can anyone detail the connection/configuration I should be doing to check it with mine.

thanks.

Hi, i still got these hd buffer size errors with my dell inspiron 6400 dual core and my mbox.

Please reply Digi! I postet my configuration above!

I went through all steps of the Troubleshooting guide, i installed the latest Pace Driver, installed the MS dual core hotfix, i turned off one core in the bios and i even disabled speed stepping in my bios. I tried to record with several external hard drives and im sure that my hard drive is not the problem.

So what can i do?

After a week wasting time on this the only solution seems to me to sell my mbox and switch to steinberg's cubase, though i decided to work with digidesing products cause they are known for stability and their great support.

As far as i can see there are so many users with this problem.

Well, I'm still waiting for help.

As far as i can see there are so many users with this problem.

Well, I'm still waiting for help.

What are the error numbers in the messages you're getting? Are you trying to use the primary internal drive for recording and playback?

Hi....

I got Mbox2 with ProTools 7 LE and Im having probs with saving my PT 7 as a copy to lower versions of PT...... A message comes up "Could not save a copy in NAME because Assertion in "\code\aztec_Staley\AlturaPorts\PT4_App\PTSess_XC line 1127 ""

And almost the same message if Im trying to Bounce to disk ... After the play back of a region ( doesnt matter how long it is ) same message comes up..."Could not complete the Bounce To DIsk command because Assertion in \code\aztec_Staley\AlturaPorts\NewFileLibs\Ft\Audi o\FF_Aud line 33 "

Also, I have a Fastory Bundle plug-ins that came with my MBOX2 Factory Bundle and when I install the plug-ins and start up ProTools ( with my iLok ), PT starts up, but freezes up on 1 of the plug-ins that Ive installed with the Factrory Bundle. After that I tryed to restart PT, but it does the same thing, so the only way I could open up PT is to Uninstall the Factrory Bundle Plug-Ins....!

If any1 have any tips to solve these probs .....
Please heeeelllppppp......!



Have you recently moved your DAE Playback Buffer to Level 8? If so, that can be a cause for the /FF_Aud line33 errors. Moving it back to level 2 should fix the problem.

You should also trash preference and database files as indicated in the Win XP/ Pro Tools 6.x General Troubleshooting (http://duc.digidesign.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=802377) thread.

the error messages are -9093, and -9129.

Yes, actually i use the primary internal drive for recording and playback, but i tried an external firewire drive of a friend, and. i still get these error messages.

When i turn one cpu core off in the bios i can play a single audio track at least for about 30 seconds, so i guess the problem is with the chipset of my dell, don't you think so?

i even get these error messages when i playback one single audio track in a new session.

When i turn one cpu core off in the bios i can play a single audio track at least for about 30 seconds and the error message changes (pro tools tells me that it is conflicting with other cpu tasks), so i guess the problem is with the chipset of my dell laptop, don't you think so?

The usual errors: Disk -9000 errors. Disk -6000 errors. Increase H/W Buffer, etc.

The project files are on the external drive (F and G, Oxford Chipset). I guess the problem is a sub-standard PCMCIA card, but I just wanted to see if anyone saw other problems. I bought this notebook well before Pro-Tools, so that's why I didn't check compato ahead of time. I'm hoping I can get this notebook to work.

Finally, using the 002 (not Rack).

Thanks for any help.

Hi. This is a really simple problem I hope, so I don't think I'll need to post my configurations or computer specs. I just built a new computer, on which I'm running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I'm using the 002 Rack as my primary (and my only) audio device. I have installed all the drivers along with Pro Tools LE 7.1, but in my Control Panel (under Sounds and Audio Devices - Volume Tab) it shows that I have "No Audio Device."

I am still getting audio playback in Pro Tools despite this, and Windows is recognizing the 002 as my default device for sound playback (Sounds and Audio Devices - Audio and Voice Tabs). However, certain media players (ex: Winamp, Power DVD, Jet Audio, VLC Media Player) do not play back audio.

Any solutions? Thanks so much for your help either way.

Josh, you need to configure the wavedriver as directed in the Wavedriver Usage Guide (http://akmedia.digidesign.com/support/docs/WaveDriver_Usage_Guide_25693.pdf), which is referenced from the Getting Started Guide.

The Pro Tools software uses it's own driver and needs no configuration.

Thanks so much for your answer. I had already configured the wavedriver, but your link brought me to the information i needed to add third party applications into the opt-in list. One more question though. Is it okay that my Control Panel still lists "No Audio Device" under the Volume Tab of "Sound and Audio Devices"?

Hey, I have PT 6.7r2 on XP Pro SP 2. AMD Athlon Dual Core w/ 2GB DDR Ram. Digi 002....

I recently reinstalled Pro Tools on my computer, to solve some other issues. If I have my Digi 002 powered on, (even without pro tools running), I can't get iTunes to start up. It says it has encountered an unknown error (0x666 blah, blah). If I turn off the Digi 002, it starts up just fine. However, having the digi 002 powered off, it makes running the sound from iTunes through it very difficult. I took a few measures to fix the problem:

(I'm not right in front of my studio computer right now, so bear with me...)

1. I went into quick time's preferences page, and made sure the little box under the audio tab labeled safe mode (wave out only) was checked. That didn't help me.

2. I went to iTunes support, and found an article, which told me to 'disable' that little box. Also, it said to go into the 'sounds and audio devices' in my control panel, and click the advanced button under speaker set up, and select 'stereo headphones' apply, ok, ok. That didn't help, either.

3. Since the reinstall, i noticed that the digi 002 was not an option for the playback devices under the sounds and audio devices window in the control panel. "HA! Drivers!" I thought. I came back here, and downloaded the digidesign audio drivers 7.0, and followed the installation instructions contained in the "wave driver intructions" .pdf files that came with the driver download. That enabled the digi 002 to become an option in the 'sounds and audio devices' window, so I selected it. Still, nothing.

4. I saw in the .pdf files i just mentioned, that I could use the 'MME Helper' to ensure that iTunes was in the opt-in list of third party programs permitted to run sound through the digi002. I already that software from before, so I opened it up, and sure enough...iTunes was already in there.

I still couldn't get iTunes to turn on, while my digi 002 was running. Also, if I remember correctly, it won't open if I have that little 'safe' box checked in QuickTime prefs, either, so I turned it off. I turned the digi 002 off, and then opened iTunes. Once iTunes was open, I turned that safe box back on, and turned on the digi 002. One time it froze my computer, and another time, I got it to stay running, but I couln't get any sound.

I gave up, for the time being, and decided to work on a proTools session. I tried to open it up, was stopped dead in my tracks, before the load screen could even show up. I received two error messages. They both had to do with .dll files missing, but the first error message was much more of a dramatic. I wrote it down, but I forgot it, back in the studio. I would have just saved a snapshot, but I wouldn't be able to paste it in here, anyways, right? Man, that would make life much easier. Anyways...

I had to completely dump Pro Tools....AGAIN!...and reinstall it. Now, it seems to be working fine, but I haven't tried the driver thing again. Would it have to do with the fact that the driver file name said Digidesign Wave Drivers 7.0 instead of 6.7r2? That would make sense, but I wasn't sure if the driver version had to do with which version of Pro Tools you had to be running, but it was the only driver file available for download. Where would I get the drivers for 6.7r2? I would have thought that the drivers were already on the disc, but I thought I also read somewhere, that I need actual standalone drivers, which the .pdf's instructed to find on the digi website.

anybody have a clue what's going on there?

Thanks in advance, for any assistance anyone has to offer

Yes. Different versions of the drivers cannot co-exist.
Where would I get the drivers for 6.7r2?

The drivers are on the disk, and installed by default with all new versions of Pro Tools (I can't remember if 6.7 is one of those or not; I think that started with 6.9).

You will need to remove all Pro Tools software, including the wavedriver and ASIO drivers, and re-install. While re-installing, make sure that the ASIO and Wavedrivers are selected during the installation.

I would honestly highly recommend upgrading to version 7. You will then be able to take advantage of the dual core capabilities of your processor.

Hi, my problem is "simple"; the computer refuses to see DIGI002-RACK.

Did you buy it new or used? What is the serial number of your 002R? If it ends in the letter "F" or earlier, you could be experiencing the famous "Power harness" problem. If so, contact Digidesign and they will send you a new one ASAP.

There is also a workaround that might get you going temporarily; open the unit and reseat the power harness.

Hi,

I have a Sony VAIO pc (PCV-RS502(CE), with winXP-sp2 and a previously installed version of Pro Tools 7.1
I recently bought an Mbox 2, connected it and it worked rightaway. Except for the midiports that didn't show.
I removed the 7.1 version and tried to install the 7.0 that came with the Mbox 2.
When I launched it it crashed on startup rightaway.

So I did a windows system recovery to put everything right again. But then the "old" 7.1 would not startup anymore (fatal exception, Pro Tools needs to exit, a log file ... etc.) , and now I can't even remove that old program anymore, I think it must be damaged.

Does anyone know how to remove an old program that cannot be uninstalled anymore?

And If I manage to remove the old version (7.1), why does the Mbox 2 software 7.0 give me such problems?


Thanks in advance,

Robert

Hello,
Hi....(sorry for the bad english)

I got Mbox2 with ProTools 7 LE and im having problems when try to playback. The playback stops alone when im using a single or more tracks with or without plugins. This message comes up " The operating system held off interrupts for too logn. If this occurs frequently, try increasign the "H/W Buffer Size" in the playback engine panel" (-6086)
I try to disable the Hyper Treading or increasign the buffer size but its the same.
Please help!

Thanks.

Hi,

I purchased an M-box 2 recently and am running Pro-Tools LE on Microsoft Windows XP/2002 Professional 5.01.2600 (Service Pack 2)

The problem I am having is often during tracking or playback the system will stop and a pop-up will appear saying,

"The operating system held off interrupts for too logn. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the playback engine panel" (-6086)

Or sometimes the number is (-9093)

I've tried following all the troubleshooting guides and disabling the Hyperthreading and the Onboard Audio Card in BIOS as well as adjusting the display settings have had some minimal impact but the problem still persists.

Being in general fairly illiterate when it comes to configuring the hardware on my computer i have tried following the Troubleshooting to the best of my ability but i still have a couple of questions.

1) I read that in the BIOS I should disable Intel Speedstep and any RAID & SATA drives but i couldnt find anything matching that description, am I not looking properly?

2) I was told that I should disable some network adapters but not if they were a particular type. The listed Network Adapters in my Device Manager are "1394 Net Adapter" and "Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection". Should I disable either of these or will this have a bad effect on my computer?

3) I also read that Firewall or Wireless Connections can cause this error. In my System Configuration Utility should I then disable "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)" or "Wireless Zero Connection"?

Are there any more configurations I can then make? Or is there some piece of hardware I should purchase to allay this problem? If you could help me I would be very grateful. I listed the SiSoftware System Summary Module below.

Thank you

Hi,

I purchased an M-box 2 recently and am running Pro-Tools LE on Microsoft Windows XP/2002 Professional 5.01.2600 (Service Pack 2)

The problem I am having is often during tracking or playback the system will stop and a pop-up will appear saying,

"The operating system held off interrupts for too logn. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the playback engine panel" (-6086)

Or sometimes the number is (-9093)

I've tried following all the troubleshooting guides and disabling the Hyperthreading and the Onboard Audio Card in BIOS as well as adjusting the display settings have had some minimal impact but the problem still persists.

Being in general fairly illiterate when it comes to configuring the hardware on my computer i have tried following the Troubleshooting to the best of my ability but i still have a couple of questions.

1) I read that in the BIOS I should disable Intel Speedstep and any RAID & SATA drives but i couldnt find anything matching that description, am I not looking properly?

2) I was told that I should disable some network adapters but not if they were a particular type. The listed Network Adapters in my Device Manager are "1394 Net Adapter" and "Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection". Should I disable either of these or will this have a bad effect on my computer?

3) I also read that Firewall or Wireless Connections can cause this error. In my System Configuration Utility should I then disable "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)" or "Wireless Zero Connection"?

Are there any more configurations I can then make? Or is there some piece of hardware I should purchase to allay this problem? If you could help me I would be very grateful. I listed the SiSoftware System Summary Module below.

Thank you

Benjamin Golby

Hello

My specs are:

Pentium 4 2.6gig
1 gig ram
2 x 300 gig hard drives
windows xp std
service pack 2


my PTLE 6.4 has been working a dream for 1 year solid, till today! I was saving session copy in, and then all of a sudden I got this.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program:c:\programFiles\Digidesign\Pro Tools\Protools exe This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way Please contact the application support team for more information

It also happens when I bounce to disk.

Now I read that you need to install CS9. So I did and the problem still occured. Sorry for the dumb question, but do you need to put the downloaded Cs9 Zip folder in a specific folder for PT to recognise it?

Anyway, I then read that you will need CS6, which is mainly a plug in 'fixer'. I did this too, but still nothing. are there 9 CS files i've got to install in order?

I haven't installed any new software, and my computer components are fully PT compatable.

You're help would be much appreciated.

Duane.

Hi,

I'm new on this forum. So i'll give it a go. I've protools LE on my brand new laptop. But during playback it stops with the notice of an (-6086) error witch states that i've to increase my H/W buffer size, but it's already on max size...
Can somebody help? I'm not a computer wizzard. There's a lot of money in this protools Mbox 1 system and laptop wich a curenttly can't use.

Thank you "spkguitar". i did what you've told me. I've made a Protools optimized hardware profile. In that profile, using 'device manager', i've switched of all of the unnecessary hardware (network, bluetooth,...). After switching all hardware it was time to switch off all unnecessary software startups.
I ended up with a laptop, totally focused on protools and my Mbox. And gues what, it works, it really works. Now i can work with protools like never before (somethimes it craches, but that i can live with)
Thanx a lot, good forum !!!

Hi everyone - this is my first post here. I just bought ProTools LE with the Mbox 2, got the Factory upgrade, and an Axiom61 MIDI controller.

I'm having.. well, several problems.

1. Every time I open ProTools, I get a DAE -1115 error, and it closes, and then if I open it again everything works fine.

2. The main problem that's driving me insane is, simply, playback. Everything sounds incredibly garbly and noisy and there's a wierd click happening as well. This occurs even for the metronome. If I set the Mix knob on my Mbox all the way to the left, everything sounds fine; but the output is all garbled. I am NOT having this problem in Reason.

3. I am having a problem in Reason, however, which is a bit of latency in my Axiom61. I can't tell if there's latency in ProTools, however, as I don't have any clear playback (see #2).

My hardware specs are listed below; any and all help is much appreciated. I look forward to being an active member in this community, just as soon as I learn what I'm doing.

Hi,

I am running PT 6.7r2 on a custom PC with Windows XP Pro SP2, AMD Athlon Dual Core 4400+ 64-bit 2.21GHz and 2GB DDR-SDRAM. I am also using a digi 002 interface and a Yamaha Motif ES88 keyboard.

I wanted to free up some MIDI channels on my keyboard, so I recorded a MIDI track (snare) to an Audio Track. That seemed to go just fine. However, when I muted the midi track, and let the audio track play, the snare seemed to be early, instead of on time, like the midi track. When I got to thinking about it, it made sense. In the time it takes my processor to send the audio signal from the audio track to the monitors, the data from the MIDI tracks was being sent from pro tools back to the keyboard, to trigger the tone generator, which sent the audio signal back into the line inputs of my digi 002, which routed it directly to the monitors.

I am hoping that there is a way to compensate for this. I am sure that if I recorded ALL of my midi tracks to audio, that they would again line up correctly. However, I am not yet at that stage. Even if I were, what would I do if I wanted to add more tracks? The rest of the song would be playing back much faster than the midi data I'm recording, and it wouldn't sound good, until I recorded the midi track back to audio.

I guess I could 'nudge' all of the audio tracks' regions forward a few samples, but I don't want to have to do that for every single track or region. I guess I could also select all of the midi data for all of the midi tracks, and pull them back a few samples. Either of these options would make composition and editing a bitch, since everything would look out of whack in comparison to the grid lines.

I know that TDM systems offer a TDM plug in that automatically compensates for this. Do LE systems have a way around this, as well. I read through the user guides, and all that malarky, but it was all very confusing.

Should I be trying to figure out a way to make all of the audio tracks play back with a few sample delay, or should I be trying to insert a few samples-worth of silence on each audio track? Maybe I'm supposed to be figuring out a way to get the MIDI channels to play as fast as the audio tracks. Speed up MIDI, or slow down the Audio. Which is it? Agggghhhhhhhhh.

Thanks to anybody willing to contribute a way around this.

Hi!

My problem is that I keep getting pop-up windows telling me that the hardware buffer size is wrong (or something like that). "The operating system held off interrupts for too long" (!) When I increase the H/W buffer size it's OK for a while, but I have to decrease it later (when I playback). Very annoying!!!

I only recently bought ProTools LE and Mbox2 to go with a brand new laptop (see spec below).

I see on the Internet that some people have had success recording from Mbox2 using Audacity (whereas other people have been unable to do this!). Do you have any tips on how to set up Mbox2 so it can be recognised by Audacity? My copy of Audacity (version 1.2.4) can't see Mbox2 (even though ProTools LE can).

Looking forward to your advice.

Regards,
Andy Coe

Okay, here's my story. MBox on a P4, 1.8Ghz or so. All was working very well until one day...

Snap - SNAP SNAP

My monitor starts making nasty snap crackle pop sounds. I turned it off, unplugged it, brought up the spare monitor, and XP (pro) wouldn't boot. BSOD. I have no time to fuss with this (I'm a busy guitar teacher and parent, and the family doesn't take too well to me spending lots of time widdling with technology...) so I eventually reinstalled XP pro to see if it would do anything, and yes, my machine boots now. I go to do some simple recording, and while I can record silence fine, the second the mic picks up sound, it also records horrible noise that drowns out the original source sounds. Not so practical. I hook the Mbox up to my laptop and it does not do this.

So, I figure that the monitor snap crackle popping was some kind of short/surge, and it's shorted *something* in my tower... Whatever this is acts up when recording... What could this be? Power supply? MoBo? Anything else that could cause this? Other minutia: after this incident, Nero no longer recognizes my CDRW as a record device, so currently I'm left using Windows Media Player to record CDs... Sigh.

Thoughts?

Steve

Hi,
My name is James Elvidge. I have a Digi 002 Rack running PT's 6.9. I have a Toshiba Satellite running Windows Media XP. This is a new laptop. I had a Toshiba I bought a year ago and everything worked perfect on it but of course it got stolen! Anyway, now I am having nothing but problems. I can't record hardly at all. Sometimes I can record for 10 minutes easily without the buffer error coming on and other times it won't go 50 seconds. I did not have any of these problems with my last Toshiba and this one is basically the same but with the new Duo Processors. Anyway, her is my profile. Thank you for anything thing you can do to help...

Nobody responded to my specific problem, but after messing with the H/W buffer size I was able to get it under control.

My main problem is that my PC keeps not recognizing my Axiom61, and I'm surprised that ProTools, Reason and other programs don't have the Axiom61 in their MIDI controller lists. Oh well.

Hi

I have a Dell Inspiron 9300, and a digi 002. (digi certified!)
I have allways had problems with the digi 002 in someway or another. It will quite regularly stop, dropout and give buffersize must be increased in sessions. It also drops out so session doesn't respond and workaround is to change buffersize back and forth. Sometimes it reports it cant communicate with the hw device and ill have to quit an restart. Recently I hav gotten dae-1115 errors and errors where it states that "Protools is unable to aquire the hardware because it is in use by another program..."
Only protools was running when this happened.

Please help...an ever frustrated customer.

Have been using pro tools LE and mbox 2 for 4 months and have done many hours of recording without any problems. However, just recently and especially with the release of the new Itunes/quicktime i've been havin multiple problems with recording and listening to audio.

I use the mbox as a soundcard to listen to itunes and its worked flawlessly until just this past week. Update to 7.0.2 (and i know many have been having problems) but even when i revert back to itunes 5 or 6 i cant record more than 10 seconds without the "operating system held off interuptions too long" error. Pro Tools is running 97% of my cpu even though ive set it to max at 85% or even 75%.

Likewise, when listening to music through on board laptop speakers itunes will use about 20% cpu, once i switch sound device to mbox it jumps up to 100%, and if itunes is in the background when firefox is running it'll stop the audio much like during recording (mainly when pages of other media players are opened). Is this at all possibly a hardware problem or problems between itunes/quicktime/and pro tools?


currently it is impossible to record without interuption.

Hey guys,

I had a lot of interrupt problems,
I don't see the interrupts-message occur every ten seconds anymore, (because of putting hardware acceleration to "none")
but it does occur however, twice or thrice a day, just curious if any of you notices anything I can still change...
I don't run very demanding sessions with mostly just 7 tracks and only basic plugins (mostly equalizing and compressing)
anyway, I can work with it for most of the time without errors,
but the fact that I still get them bothers me,
you see, I'm a composer and I like to record when my music is being played, and you can bet your ass the error 's gonna come on a crucial moment while recording during a live concert.
anyway,...
Oh, and I'm running PTLE 7.1 with an Mbox2
and don't bother saying that I should turn off multicore support, because I tried that, and it didn't work, (it only got worse)
I also tried disabling start-up items, that didn't make a difference,
neither did disabling SATA support
(could it be because of my harddisks spinning at 5400rpm?, because before I was running PTLE (6.8) on a mac that had the same speed, and it didn't systematically give this interrupt message)
if anyone sees anything in the sandra report that might be a possible cause, thanks a lot

Since i bought 7.1 lots of trouble with Low CPU problems and interupts...
When i press record now on 1 audiotrack in a new session, my PT LE 7.1cs10 freezes...

What can i do? Cubase SX 3 works fine with my hardware.

I've had a problem where when I hit play or record it does not engage. I'll hit record and it will turn red and then quickly go off without recording. If I keep trying it will eventually play or record. What can I do to alleviate this problem?

Hi, someone please get back to me.... anyone that is having this same problem, or hopefully HAD the same problem, maybe? I just bought the mbox mini with ptle 7. I have created a new session with one track. Arm the track, then I started recording... 2 to 30 seconds into the recording i get the "the operating system held off interrupts for too long. if this occurs frequently, try increasing the "h/w buffer size" in the playback engine panel. (-6086)". I tried every possible size and i even dedicated most of my cpu %, didnt help. I set windows xp to minimum system requirements, and there are absolutely no other programs running in the back ground. Anyone know what else i can try. i have made a few different sessions, and i have recorded several short tracks (due to the error). This occurs even when i play back a track. This is with no plug-ins by the way. Thanks to anyone for any info, i do really appreciate it. I have one day off a week, it would be nice to be recording rather than messing with this damn error :/.

I have a Dell Lattitude D520 - new. PT7.1 (upgrade from PT6.4. I have done EVERYTHING that I could find to do in the setup manual, the knowledge base, forums, etc. But I still bounce between error codes 9093 ("Increase H/W buffer size" and 9127 "Decrease H/W buffer size.")

I previously had a Dell 600M Laptop, and used PT6.4 and M-Box with it. FINALLY got it to work, after adding and external USB HD (7200 RPM). Then that laptop got stolen (in Indonesia).

So this is a new laptop. I could put PT7.1 on it, or I could go back to PT6.4. I only record two tracks (from mikes at either end of my piano).

A Guitar Store sales person told me that my problem was the USB external HD. So he sold me a Firewire HD (more $$$$). But that had not helped. Still 9093 - 9127 - 9093 - 9127 - etc.

I need help badly, and will appreciate any help that gets the system to work. My system specs are:

I have installed Pro Tools LE 7.12 that came with my mbox 2 pro twice and it will not launch. Right at the end of each installation I got a message saying something to the effect of "there was a problem during installation....your hardware may not work properly."

I have used the mbox 2 pro with Reason 3.0 and Adobe Audition 2.0 and it seems to be working fine except I cannot monitor vocals while recording in Audition nor in sound forge 7.0. I can however listen to them at playback. Brand new mic that works properly with m-audio fast track usb.

Also, when I try to launch Pro Tools, nothing happens but when I look in task manager, I see that it is running in the background. Thanks in advance for your help

Bad noise problem when trying to record.

12-15-2006, 11:58 PM
hey everyone...

I'm using a toshiba satelite a105-s4004 notebook, centrino duo core. 1gig of ram, 100gb 7200rpm hard drive. I'm using it with a 002r. I've followed all the recommendations online... disable dual core, power settings wireless networking..etc. no matter what I do, when I run pro tools 7.1 and recording anything (be it 1 track or 16), it stops and says i must increase hw buffer size, when i increase it, it says i should decrease hw buffer size. the digidesign rep told me to use an external hard drive to solve the problem...but shouldnt it still work on the existing hard drive? any thoughts or suggestions?

Jervo,

You wrote:
1. Every time I open ProTools, I get a DAE -1115 error, and it closes, and then if I open it again everything works fine.

2. The main problem that's driving me insane is, simply, playback. Everything sounds incredibly garbly and noisy and there's a wierd click happening as well. This occurs even for the metronome. If I set the Mix knob on my Mbox all the way to the left, everything sounds fine; but the output is all garbled.

Have you solved these issues? I am having the same thing happen on my new HP Laptop. I just posted a new thread asking for help before I saw this one.

Any help would be appreciated.

You have several issues there, soundslave, and I'm afraid none of them are the "easy fix" you are looking for. I'm afraid you are about to be severely disappointed, so brace yourself.

Let's start at the beginning; compatibility. From the compatibility page for the Mbox 2 mini (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?langid=100&navid=54&itemid=22765):

Under "Known Issues" -
Computers with AMD Sempron processors or Intel Celeron processors are not supported

Even if it were, the speed of that processor would severely limit what you could do with it.

Hard disks - Hard Disk : HTS421280H9AT00 (80 GB) You have only one physical hard disk. That disk spins at a speed of 4200rpm, which is far too slow for Pro Tools. A 7200rpm drive is required for Pro Tools to perform as expected and designed. It is also recommended to use a separate physical hard drive for Pro Tools sessions. On laptops (that's what your system is, right?), this means getting an approved external firewire drive. The partitioning that you have is not the same, and will not work.

Unfortunately, your first problem can only be solved by getting a new computer.

Hi.

Just bought the Mbox 2 mini with Pro Tools LE 7.1.
I did use it a little, record and play back 3 tracks. Error messages came up once in while and I had to change around the “buffer size” but it worked. Then when I tried to record a 4th track, error messages about the buffer size kept coming up and now I can´t even record one track in a new session. There´s no audio signal on the screen (even if I hear it) and the record buttons refuse to get red when I click on them.
Changing the “buffer size” parameter in the “play back engine” menu doesn´t change anything anymore. Worst : clicking doesn´t affect anything at all.

Do you think it looks like a RAM problem or is it a worst problem with the inner structure ?

I removed the network cards and everything they recommand in the ”Getting started” guide.
My chipset are NOT in the Digidesign list of the ones uncompatible with Protools .
But I have XP Pro Media center, I read it could be a problem.

I would like to know if there´s a hope I can use it on this computer if I buy more RAM (or change to XP Home edition) or if I can just cry.

Thanks for your help .

Diplo, You actually have a few problems;
Media Center is number one. Pro Tools is not supported on Media Center (for the exact reason of the problems you are having).
You are using a dual core processor, so once you are using the proper operating system, you will need to apply the Windows dual core hotfix Hard Disk : Hitachi HTS541060G9SA00 (54GB) You are only using one physical hard drive, and it spins at a rotational speed of 5400rpm. You need to be using a separate physical hard drive at 7200rpm for Pro Tools to function as designed. With laptops, that means using an external firewire drive with the oxford 911 bridge chipset.

You should have plenty of memory; that's not a problem. More is always better, but it's not at all what is causing your issues.

Hi All...I'm sorry for the doubleposting, but after I wrote the new topic...I later discovered this topic.

I've got a MusicXPC C4 computer, installed the Mbox2, that came with Pro Tools LE, and then my monitors that I use are Samson Resolve 80a Active Studio Monitors.
The problem that I am having is when I have the Mbox2 connected to my studio monitors. I can hear a loud high pitched frequency, whenever the DAE in ProTools LE starts up.
I do not hear the sound when I use my headphones in the Mbox's headphone jack, but I am using unbalanced cables, and I also have everything going into an APC Battery Backup/Surge Protector.

Do You Have Any Suggestions to Try?
Thanks and Happy Holidays!

I just lost a session today due to not getting that error fixed.
Is there some quick fix for this? It comes and goes as it pleases.
I have no other applications running whenever I open ProTools.
This is aggravating, someone help me.

I am having a problem and I suspect it has to do with the cardbus, but before I go out and buy a computer with firewire ports or wait for digi to come out with useable cardbus firewire adapters I want to make sure that that is the problem.

I have an mbox 2 pro factory bundle and when I start up Pro Tools, it cannot find the mbox 2 pro. However, it has worked 3 or 4 times, but only to fail on restart and not work the next time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys


What is the test that I need to run to get the report, i have the program just don't know which test to run.

And if any one has any unofficial cardbus recommendation that would be greatly appreciated also.
Thank you

all right...thank you very much.

I´m already working on fixing problem number one : get XP Home edition or XP Pro to replace XP media center.
problem 2 : the Windows dual core hotfix : I guess I will download an update or something.

problem number 3 : get a external firewire HD...is a tough solution cos it costs money.

Am I close to 80% sure to succeed working with my Mbox by doing those 3 things ?
or will I have problems still coming because of my computer nature (chipset, processor speed etc..) ?


Cheers

Hello,

I am running 7.1 CS10 and I’m getting -9129 buffer errors. Once I decrease the buffer all seems o.k. for a while then I get asked to increase it. I forget the error code for the increase but I am sure you are familiar. I have read the General Troubleshooting thread and all the support FAQ's and done all the instructions including the AMD and Windows dual-core processor hot fix. I have gone over it multiple times and seem to have come up empty. Hopefully in reading all these posts, I forgot to do something. Please help!!!

Hi everybody,

This is my first time asking help on boards. I have helped others in computer problems, but now I can't find a solution. So here it goes: help me!

System description:
MBox 2 Factory (USB) and Pro Tools LE 7.3
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A1667G
Athlon 64 3200+/1,5GB/80GB/Mobile Radeon X700/WIN XP Home FI, SP2
(and all the latest updates and fixes that MS has to offer, no alphas or betas)
More details below.

My MBox2/PTLE has terrible backround noise when playing any audio tracks. When I hit the play button the noise begins. There is no noise when there is no audio sample on track to play. But when sample starts on track, noise begins too. I Don't think this has anything to do with input/output cables, because these same cables have worked fine before. The noise isn't there all the time.

Here is what I've done so far:
- Previously I had PTLE version 7.0 that I updated to 7.3. I uninstalled the old version and installed the new version.
- At first I had NO noise problems. My MBox was connected directly to my laptop usb, but that did not work. I had 6086 errors during playback: "Operation system held off interrupts for too long..." (-6086), wich I managed to fix. I found a recommendation from from digidesign website to buy an active USB hub. So, I went shopping... Got a nice I-Rocks UH-400 active 4 port USB hub
- After the USB hub installation I reinstalled PTLE 7.3 and drivers. I made sure digidesign folder was removed completely, before reinstalling PTLE 7.3.
- Now my PTLE 7.3 is working better, but it was a bad trade. Now the voices are ruined and my ears are aching

Now I get an error: 'DAE error -1115 was encountered' every time I start PTLE after a system boot (not after logging off). On second time PTLE starts without an error msg, but the noise during playback is unbearable. The noise is hard to describe: all the voices are kind of distorted and you can hear ticking that pans from side to side.

I'm 'experiencing' the same kind of noise when running the Reason Adapted. (Using the same ASIO driver).

I have tried everything and I have read through the problem solving section on DigiD's website:
- updated drivers (icluding iLock)
- I have moved the usb hub as far from MBox2 as possible. I allso moved MBox to a different location, away from any power sources and the hub. (These had no effect to the noise and I think that the source of the noise is not external?)
- USB hub has a thick "signal protected" USB cable, so (I think) there is no interference problems there.
- There are no other usb devices on the same hub and there are no other hubs
- I detached all the other usb devices (mise), but the noise goes on.
- I removed power cable and run on battery, but the noise just goes on
- I Removed the power cable from active usb hub and run on computers usb power, but the annoying noise goes on
- I removed both power cables (laptop and usb hub) and powered down both WLAN router and modem to minimize any power related/electric interference. Noise goes on when playing audio.
- I disabled every possible device, I could think of (icl. internal audio device AC'97, Broadcom WLAN adapter, ACPI compliant control method battery and so on). I had to do those by using device manager and disabling drivers. I have no control over AC'97 settings in this Megatrend's BIOS's UI (weird, but true). In this BIOS version you can adjust system time, boot sequence and thats about it. Perhaps I should try to find a BIOS update too. But what I've heard, those updates are a bit dangerous...

Summa summarum:
This noise began after installing USB hub and PTLE 7.3. What (on earth) could be the source of this annoying thing!

I would be so-very-thankful of any help or ideas. I have strugled several days with these problems and I still haven't managed to get this MBox2-machine working properly. Is it me or... ? I'm about to looooose it.

Thank you for a nice BB. Keep up the good work. We need this.

Diplo, You actually have a few problems;
[LIST=1] Media Center is number one. Pro Tools is not supported on Media Center (for the exact reason of the problems you are having).
You are using a dual core processor, so once you are using the proper operating system, you will need to apply the Windows dual core hotfix



Hello SPKGuitar,
I have been reading up on laptops and posts on the DUC. I saw your posting re Diplo's problem. I am considering the purchase of this computer and I didn't want the same issues. http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11187710&whse=BC&Ne=4000000&N=4017754&Mo=8&pos=7&No=2&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=4774&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&Sp=C&ec=&topnav=

I know I will have to replace the OS with XP home or Pro. I will also need an external HD. Can you see any reason this laptop is not a good choice. I heard via word of mouth that one should stay clear of the Centrino processor. I might need to upgrade RAM to 2.0

You mention a "hot fix?"

I was also considering this laptop.

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11178478&whse=BC&Ne=4000000&N=4017754&Mo=8&pos=7&No=0&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=4774&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&Sp=C&ec=&topnav=

This is a huge expenditure for me. I would appreciate any feedback you have to offer.

Happy new year

You mention a "hot fix?"

Windows XP dual core hotfix. Google it.
I would appreciate any feedback you have to offer.

Stick with the recommended laptops.

-pluto- is back again with his problem

I was writing earlier about my problem with noise and clicking voice when using active USB hub.

I went back to the shop and got my self a Belkin's 4 port usb hub, that was solving the problem in some cases. Well, after installation I got my original problem back. Now I get 6086 errors again that says "operating system held off interrupts for too long. Try increasing...". The sound is now OK, but the demo session plays only few seconds before this error. Just like it was when MBox 2 was connected directly to my laptop (without any hubs).

I found out something new: when I was playing a combinator MIDI track in Reason Adapted (using ASIO driver) the playback breaks time to time for a second (or less). Just like it would be a some kind of hard drive speed problem or something (which it propably isn't). I thought this might be a symptom of the same problem I have in Pro Tools (the 6086 error). When I was using I-rocks USB hub there was no breaks in playback at all, so there are no problems in hard drive seek time. When I changed the audio driver to default DX driver, Reason Adapted started working fine without any breaks in playback and sound quality was OK.

It seems to me that the problem exists only when using ASIO driver in Reason. And what I understand, Pro Tools is running the same driver. Isn't it? So, the problem must be in ASIO driver or in the Mbox 2 it self(?)

I would be so-very-thankful of any help or ideas. I don't know if there are any real work arounds to this problem. Maybe I should give up and return my MBox 2 to the dealer

Thanks for your advice.

However, now, I have purchased a ADSTech Pyro 1394DV to connect my Didirack 002 - I have upgraded to ProTools V 7.3. I still can't use my favourite keyboards editor with Protools (01W-editpro, XV5050 editor). I still have the same error when selecting "Digi002" in their midisetup "sysex midi in : a peripheral number out of the range of your system has been selected". My editor software are unable to use Digi002 as a midi interface.

Thank you for your help.

hi, my problem is that my digi 002 is not being located by pro tools 7. it is only weeks old, and have yet to use it. i have only used it in standalone mode for use with reason 3.0, just to do tracks. i couldn't set it up because i realized that the connection, and that my friend, who built my cpu, didn't install the firewire card when he built it. it works fine in standalone mode, but when trying to load up pro tools it tells me that it is unable to locate hardware. i tried looking at the firewire installation. that is fine. i remember reading one person saying that it could be a power harness issue. another person said that sometimes you may have to open it up and play with the wires to shake off the oxidation because of moisture. the only thing is is that my 002 is brand new!! i do not know what the problem is!! hope you can help!!SiSoftware Sandra

Hey,

Everty time I try to start protools 6.4 my system crashes. I followed the installation instructions to the letter. I have an MBox 1 and I upgraded from protools 6.1 to protools 6.4 and yet I still can't run protools at all. Am I doing something wrong? This is definition frustrating to say the least.

My Question:
after searching this forum and the web I found several possibilities to solve my problem.
Do I have to fix it by installing the AMD Dual-Core Optimizer or the Win XP dualcorefix
or just remove SP2 and wich consequences would this have on my system?

Thanks for your help.

Hi, All,

I've been playing with Digi001 for a few years, but only in my spare time (I wish I could do music full time - perhaps in a couple of years when I retire). Recently, however, I made a BIG mistake: I got a new computer (see below) and moved up (?) to Digi002R (PT7.1), all at the same time, and my whole world caved in. Would someone, please, help me a bit. Not that I dream these will be my only vicissitudes, but at least resolving them will get me going.

First: I've never been able to understand I/O assignments (I/O Setup), but I never needed it before. In the former encarnation of PT there was, as I remember, something that mirrored (?) the SPDIF out to the Main out, which allow me to input the digital signal into a recorder. Now I cannot find such command and I'm not getting anything in my recorder.

Second: When I use "Help" to bring up the PT manual from a session, it works the first time, but misserably ignores any subsequent invocations.

I tried out the Mbox 1 and could not get it to even turn on. I was told that I probably did not have enough power going to my USB ports. I returned it for that reason and because I want something better. I will be getting the Mbox 2 next week and I would like to know if my system meets the requirements or if I can upgrade or will I need a new system. Here are my specs.

Hello, I just built my quad system based on shanes specs and others here in this great forum, but i have run into an error that i have tried all known toubleshoots on this forum and still no fix.Im only having an issue when i want to record a track in a sisson that is at 44.1k (digi002 with windows xp sp2), as soon as i hit record i get an error saying "The audio device buffer overflowed. This might include an invalid clock source. If this occurs frequently, try decreasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the Playback Engine panel (-6084)", offcorse i tried to lower the buffer and still no fix, this ONLY occurs when im at 44.1k, at (48,88,96K) everything works like a charm, so the error is only at 44k for some reason.I have searched and googled and no result, so im turning to this forum's great members and support staff.

What i did WITH NO RESULT: I did all the tweeks for xp as listed on this forum, trashed the DAE, and deleted the database folder for all hd.
-i have now tried all pro tools le software from 7.0 and up with the updates, up to 7.3cs1
-added the dual core fix (for amd)
-tried different firewire ports and cables

****UPDATE*** I WAS WRONG WITH ONLY NOT RECORDING AT 44.1, IT ALSO WONT ALLOW ME TO RECORD AT 88K, BUT FOR SURE I CAN RECORD AT 48 AND 96K, SO IF YOU DOUBLE THE FREQUECIES YOU GET THE SAME RESULT, THAT IS VERY STRANGE, PLEASE I NEED TO GET THIS FIXED... IM ALMOST 100% SURE ITS NOT THE DIGI002 AS I RECORDED ON MAC AT 44.1 WITH NO ISSUE,ITS NOT THE FIREWIRE CARD OR THE CABLE BECAUSE I CAN RECORD AT 48 AND 96K, THAT LEAVES ME WITH 2 OPTIONS (SOMETHING MISSING FROM THE DIGI002 DRIVER NOT ALLOWING FOR THIS) OR AN XP SETTING THAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED, i HAVE EMAILED DIGISUPPORT WITH NO ANSWER SO FAR, I WOULD BE GREATFULL FOR ANY HELP!
*****
To make sure that my digi002 is not at fault i tried recording at 44.1k at my friends studio (he has a mac) runing pt7.3, and it worked like a charm on all frequencies.so its not the 002 fault/

Please Im going crazy, i just cant wait to get started on this monster pc , but this is making it hard for me, I will be greatfull for any help,thanks again!!!

here are the pc's info:

Hi Digi!!! The error I´m getting is "The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the H/W Buffer Size in the playback engine panel (-6086)". I´m getting the error kind of "at random". I´ve noticed that with NO session opened at all, the System Usage window´s CPU bar clips randomly (and every time that happens, error 6086 appears on screen when in playback). I repeat that it looks REALLY good (almost no usage at all) when in playback until this happens. I´ve downloaded the AMD power monitor to check CPU activity and it does not clip in there as in Pro Tools... I went through all the steps in the Troubleshooting Thread, Dual Core Hotfix, Optimizer, etc, and nothing works for me... I still have to try with a dedicated Hard Drive for audio, but what concerns me is that I get the "clips" with NO session opened at all, so I guess that the problem is not because of that. PLease Help!!!!

I have been using my mbox2 with my laptop for about a year now. Just recently my internal hard drive crashed, and I tried to reinstall Pro Tools on my new hard drive, but I can't get it to work. Part way through the installation an error comes up

"Component Transfer Error"
Component: Program Files
File Group: PT Folder Icon
File: <iconPath>\
Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Thanks for the help,

could this -6084 error be caused by the bilt in motherboard firewire card? can the fire card somehow read the 48k and 96k frequencies from the digi002 and not read the 44k and 88k? i have tried everything, and nothing has allowed me to record at 44 or 88k
the firewire onboard is TEXAS INSTRUMENTS OHCI COMPLIANT IEEE1394a HOST CONTROLLER ,SHOULD IT BE IEEE1394B? is it time to try a pci firewire card? guys im going crazy.

***upate*** while using kontakt 2 in standalone mode i will not get a clean signal playing at 44.1k or 88k using the digi002 as the driver (i get cuts and electric ticks, as if the digi is clocked worng)) at 48 and 96k its all good with no issues, so its not the pro tools software itself (that is ruled out, and not the digi002 as it worked fine at 44k on mac), that leave me with 2 things, firwire connection or the digi002 driver, what di yiu guys think? if its the onboard firewire, why would than the firewire driver work with the ndigi002 at some frequencies and not on others?

I used this system in the past with an Mbox and an 002 for a while
the only issue then was bounce to disk but we got around that now
I get errors every few seconds with the new Mbox 2
PT LE 7.31
Held off interupts increase buffer etc...
It is completely unusable
the odd thing is works great with Cubase SX3 and the Rental version on Samplitude 9

the task manager shows 2 proccessors but I think there is only one
It has hyperthreading
I am confused about the dual core
It is over a year old and they did not have any out at the time.
How can it have 2 and not be a dual core?

Should I have 1 or 2 selected?
what should the cpu percentage be set too?

Hey there,

Glad to see there's someone out there who might have a bit of experience and can help. My system was working pretty well under XP SP1. I recently upgraded to SP2 and am getting the "Blue Screen of Death" when I try to run LE. I have installed PTLE v 6.4cs9. Here's my system info from Sandra Lite:

When i launch protools to install the protools 6.4 cs9 file it wouldn't let me extract the necessary files to open protools.When i first got protools two years ago I had it up and running on my Hewlett-Packard. One week ago, when trying to recover files I made a mistake and went back to factory settings, and it kicked out all of the protools data. Now, when I try to launch and install the 6.4 cs9 file my computer shuts down. All hibernation is disabled. Cant find the problem?

Hi there,
I have problems with "bounce to Disc". Nearly no attempt to bounce is successful. I tried very advise getting in the forum and on the Digidesign-homepage. Nothing helped. I have nearly no extra software like virus scanner and stuff like that. Below you find my system configuration.

... and thanks for the fish.

I'm stuck with the following problems:

1. every half hour or so I get an error telling me to decrease my buffer size. A half hour later it tels me exactly the opposite. This is quite annoying.

2. Once in a while, when i try opening an other project, Protools stops workin completely. it doesn't do this every time, it occurs randomly. When this happens I'm forced to press ctrl+alt+del and restart my computer.

I've contacted my dealer, but he says I should find out if it is a software related problem first before jumping to conclusions. Considering no other programs show the same errors.

I installed the "windows dual-core optimiser" but that only made problem nr 1. worse. Instead of every half hour, the error uccured every 5 min.

Well that's it. I hope I've explaned my situatie clearly. Good luck figuring things out. If you need any more info let me know.

I recently updated protools LE 7.0 to 7.3.1. Everything was fine until after the update. Now when I close protools I get two error messages. The first is: Mirosoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime error! Program C:\programfiles\Digidesign\protools\protoolsLE.exe R6025
-Pure virtual function call. Then the next is: Rewire DLL D:\projects\rewiredll\portable\rewiredll.ccp(980) Verify fail

I am running digi002 on a 2.2ghz amd 64+ with 1gig ram
the only rewire item Iam running is Gigasampler orchestra. The messages come after I've already closed Giga first then the session. When I try to close the protools program itself is when the messages come. So far I don't seem to be losing data but I'm not sure. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated

thevspeed,
load protools LE 6.7. click icon. computer shuts down and reboots.

This is an indication that you need to install the latest PACE drivers from www.paceap.com (http://www.paceap.com)

I don't know about the problem with installing 6.9; it may be that since you can't successfully start PT that 6.7 hasn't been authorized, and 6.9 needs an authorized version to be present. Try downloading and installing the latest PACE drivers, run 6.7 and authorize, and then try installing 6.9.

Also, since you are using a dual core, i would definitely recommend spending the money for the latest version of Pro Tools (7.3), which is capable of taking advantage of the dual core. None of the 6.x versions are, and you will have to disable one of the cores as directed in the General Troubleshooting thread.

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help.

I have (with the demise of my Mac Powerbook G4) an HP Pavilion zd7168cl "Desktop replacement" notebook. The HP screen is inoperative (yeah, I'm clumsy - in part a result of playing harmonica, guitar, and MIDI bass pedals at once, while balancing on one foot), so I'm using a Viewsonic VA720 external monitor. I'm trying to get a Digi002 Rack, Pro Tools LE 6.4 cs9, and eventually a Behringer ADA8000 8 channel A/D-D/A ADAT converter and Seagate 300G Firewire drive up and running. These all worked with the Mac (I reformtted the drive FAT32).

I have a PCMCIA 2 port 6 wire (but alas, unpowered, as they tell you in fine print once you've destroyed the packaging getting the ferschlugginer thing unwrapped) fire wire card. The HP has one built-in 4 wire firewire port. Would there be any advantage to using the PC card?

I have the new version of Sandra. I couldn't find a "System Summary" module, so I went with the closest module I could find (I knew I shudda wrote it down for this ..... sigh ....) If I messed up, I'll be more than happy to redo it. But this seems to have the pertinent information.

Thanks again for your help.

Oh yeah - it might help if I tell you the symptoms <doh> (I should know better - I repair business communications systems and get ticked when customers do that to me ) (It's been a VERY long day)

Someone who shall remain nameless (my old lady) stepped on my Windows disk. I downloaded PTLE 6.4 and 6.4cs9. When I connect the Digi002 Rack (thru the Seagate HD) and try to run PTLE, it usually freezes the window and crashes. Once I got a message, something like my EPROM firmware didn't match the program. That's not what it said - it's how I interpret it from memory. My version was newer. It tried to download the older version several times, and failed.

Thanks again.

Hello I have this problem:
When I want to create a new protocols file other than 44.1 KHZ I get the following error:

Could not create new document because pro tools could not set sample rate to specified value. Please exit all other audio applications and try again.

But I’m not running any other application than pro tools…

I’m running an MBOX 2 pro on:

Motherboard: Asus A8N-E
CPU: AMD ATHLON 64 3500+
Firewire pci-card : VIA VT6306
Videocard : NVIDIA Geforce 6500
Harddisks: MAXTOR 6V200E0
SEAGATE: ST3160021A
Memory: 1024MB
OS: Windows XP SP2

I did a reinstall of windows but that didn’t work. I’ve tried an other firewire card, that didn’t work either.
Other audio applications DO work with other sample rates on my MBOX 2 pro.
Help me please!

jdl280, thanks for posting your system specs, but are you having a problem with your system? If so what is it?


Eruk, your problem could be caused by a number of things, but here are two things to check quickly; if you are using your Digidesign hardware for your default windows soundcard, make sure to turn off system sounds make sure quicktime is not holding on the the digidesign hardware by right clicking the quicktime icon in the status tray and select exitThese are two typical cases where another application can be using the hardware, but it is not readily apparent and you could be unaware of it.

Wow.

Well, the "path to inf" problem sounds like the old Cubase SX uninstall issue (http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?navid=54&langid=1&itemid=20727). Other than that, I think a clean uninstall would be the only other suggestion.

But...

You've got quite a few problems there, and I'm honestly surprised you ever had Pro Tools running on that system in the first place.
Adapter : ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series

This chipset has been known to cause issues. Though it is not on the compatibility pages (I'm honestly not sure WHY it's not on there), but it is listed on the General Troubleshooting thread (http://duc.digidesign.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=802377&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=7&fpart=1#802377).
Hard Disk : Initio ST3300631A IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device

This external drive uses the Initio chipset, not the recommended Oxford 911 chipset. It could cause problems.

I honestly don't believe that is what is causing your current problem, but those issues would definitely need to be addressed before using Pro Tools further.

Hi,

Here's the deal:

In the edit window, the tool buttons and the counter become greyed out - the same color as the backround. This happens when dragging an automation breakpoint across the edit window. It happens in time with the dragging action, ie: the gray drags across with the cursor. Hope I'm being clear.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

BTW: This is a new system. I've run the dual hot fix and XP tips.

Hi MvdP,

I do know that if you're using an 001 with 6.4 (the last version compatible with the 001),that you will have to disable one core of your CPU, thus you'll be unable to take advantage of the dual core.

I'm not up on my chipset compatibility but you can look in the compatibility section of the digi site to see if it is incompatible, and/or post your question here as a general thread(not in "trouble with your configuration"). You will get a quicker answer.

Peace, Dave

Hi, this is my first time on this forum. I'm in a bit of a jam and I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
Basically, I'm in the final stages of recording an album, recording it all myself with protools LE (haven't upgraded to 7.3 yet), and probably going to get it mastered by a pro. The problem is that I'm running out of CPU usage and I'm wondering what I can get away with upgrading just as a quick fix to get me thru this album session (I'm planning on upgrading my whole system in the next couple months).
The song I'm completely hitting a wall (CPU usage maxing out at 90% and stopping the song) with has 22 tracks, and at least one rtas plug-in per track(usually reverb). I have my playback engine set at all highest possible settings, and I'm recording at 24bit/96.

Here are the specs from my computer:
Gateway GT5032
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
2.20 ghz, 896 MB of RAM, 160gb hard drive
-using a digi002 rack

I'm just wondering if adding more RAM will get me thru this problem, or should I upgrade my processor, or should I just bite the bullet and buy a gigantic mac pro? All three are possible options, though obviously the first two are cheaper and more desirable at the moment.

Help! If you need more info on my set-up, etc, just ask.

Thanks,
Ryan

Hey there picabeats,

If that's a desktop machine and I understand correctly, you are running off of 1 hard drive. Is that the case? If so, get another one to record to and run your system off the one you have. If not, post a SiSandra system report here with your issue.

Dave

03-11-2007, 01:39 PM
I have an external firewire hardrive I use to back up files to. Are you saying I should save files directly to that hard drive while recording? Or do you mean I should buy another internal hard drive and use it for recording only?

Khatru
03-11-2007, 01:49 PM
Sounds like you need to get an internal drive to record to - very highly recommended. Cheap too, if that's your only issue. Not sure, but based upon your track count, it seems as if your performance is relatively okay for only one drive.

03-11-2007, 05:16 PM
thepicabeats, khatru is absolutely right, you need a separate physical hard drive for your Pro Tools sessions. However, it is not your initial problem. Your initial problem is your mixing technique;
The song I'm completely hitting a wall (CPU usage maxing out at 90% and stopping the song) with has 22 tracks, and at least one rtas plug-in per track(usually reverb).

That is definitely causing a problem, and will continue to cause a problem even if you do get a new drive. Your technique for using reverb is causing your problem. While you can use reverb on every track, it is definitely not recommended, and not how it is typically done. Reverb is a very CPU hungry plugin, and using one on every track will definitely max any machine out.

Reverb is typically used to give the illusion of "space" in the mix, and unless you are making some very interesting space illusions by using different reverb sounds on every track, you are over-doing it on the reverb. Typically, only one or two reverbs are used in a mix (two different "rooms" as "space illusions"), on aux tracks, and the signal is bussed from a send on every track that needs that particular reverb sound.

Khatru
03-11-2007, 06:05 PM
Picabeats,

You can also try inserting a dither as your first plug per track. Just drag whatever plugs you've got down one space and stick one in the top space. It will help soften the blow that reverbs will have on your cpu, and possibly make a big diference for you. And yeah, if you've got similar reverb settings in multiple tracks, put that reverb in an aux track and buss those tracks to it.

Dave

thepicabeats
03-11-2007, 07:03 PM
wow, great suggestions. For some reason that never really occurred to me to simply buss things thru a single aux track with reverb-most of the time I'm using very similar reverb settings on every track, so no wonder I was murdering my cpu!

thepicabeats
03-11-2007, 07:52 PM
Damn...Gotta say thanks again. I very much prefer finding out I made a rookie mistake over spending piles of cash any day of the week. I just tried the same song with a single reverb aux track, the CPU usage went from 90-92% before, down to maybe 30-40. awesome, awesome, awesome, thanks everybody!

I have only Pro Tools 7.3.1 loaded along with Win XP SP2 and the CPU is pegged at 99% with Pro Tools open but no session. I can't run a session with one track for more than 2 or 3 secs before I get an error telling me to increase the buffer. I suspect this machine ought to be pretty fast so I am guessing I have a compatibility problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated:

"DAE can't get audio from the disks fast enough. Disk may be too slow or too fragmented. A firewire disk could be having trouble due to the extra firewire bandwidth or CPU load (-9073)"

Kathedral, I think in this case, the error is pretty descriptive of the problem.

You are only using one hard drive, the system drive. It is recommended to use a separate physical disk for Pro Tools session files. With a laptop, this means using a firewire drive with the approved oxford 911 chipset.

The problem with using the system drive for sessions is that it is most of the time in use by... the system. When the drive is in use by another application (the system), Pro Tools can not get or write the data at the speed that is required because the drive is busy doing something else.

You will need to use a firewire drive for pro tools to function as designed and expected.

hello,

i own a digi 002 rack factory and a dell 9150. it's seems that the 002 isn't recognized by the computer (the 1394 green led isn't lighted/on). while launching PT , i get the message "please connect your hardware" as it is connected. when i don't get this message the computer crash while creating DAE objects.

Hello all, I am desperate here, I can't get the damn thing to work. I have the Mbox One and pro-tools LE 6.7

When I try and install the Mbox and pro-tools, and then launch protools, I get a bluescreen that says windows has been closed to prevent damage to your system yada yada,

and for some reason, during the installation it would not be able to find the device drivers. so I went out and downloaded the appropriate drivers, and then tried again, this time it installed fine, but when I tried to open it I got these Messages:


ProToolsLE.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point _DsiSetThreadPriority@8 could not be located in the dynamic link library DSI.dll

Error Starting Program
A reuqired DLL file, DFW.dll was not found.

What is causing this, and how do I fix it.

Here is a brief rundown of my PC:

Dell Inspiron e1505 with Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83 ghz
2 gb of DDR Dual Channel Ram
80 gb Sata Hard drive
Radeon x1300 128mb Mobile Graphics Card.

What's the deal?

My issue:

I recently updated from 6.9 to 7.3.1cs2 on launch it either freezes, stop responding or crashes "a fatal error has occurred pro tools must exit." and im also getting this "C++ runtime error this application has requested the Runtime to terminate in a unusual way. Please contact the application´s support team for more information".

I have a new ASUS P5B-E system based on the P965 chipset with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (E6600), 2GB of DDR2-800 RAM, along with the onboard VIA IEEE 1394 firewire interface.

It has serious problems with playback (filtered dream demo):

H/W Buffer Size Error
--------------- -----
1024 samples -9129
512 samples or lower -9092

If I enable "Ignore Errors During Playback/Record" I occasionally hear a short burst (< half a second) but that's it. I always get error -9092 when attempting to record (input 1).

- I tried setting the processor affinity hack - no change.
- The multi-core Windows hotfix had no change, with or without the registry change.
- I've tried disabling the Gigabit ethernet interface in Windows and BIOS - no change.
- The DirectX diag tool (dxdiag) doesn't output audio with the "Music" test or the
"DirectSound" test, when the output is set to "Digidesign MBox 2 Pro 1/2". (The DirectSound test works fine for the SoundMAX HD Audio output - on motherboard.)

I did some searches on the DUC forum before buying this motherboard, for which there were no complaints, so I'm at a total loss of what to do from here :-( Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Hi chrisf,


I imagine you checked this out since it looks as if you've done some research. I saw this though when I did a search for your "-9129 error" in "suport and downloads". Check it out if you havent already:

This is directly from that, and there's more, including the affinity issue that you've already tried.

.................................................. .............................................

-9093, -9094, -9129 error messages occuring on Windows operating systems.
For Intel-based systems, updating the Intel Ultra ATA storage controller to the Standard Dual PCI IDE controller resolves these errors. To do this:

1. Go to Start Menu > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > IDE/ATA ATAPI Controllers.
2. Right Click on the Intel Ultra ATA storage controller and choose Properties.
3. Click the Driver tab, and then the Update Driver button.
4. The driver update wizard will start. Choose the bottom option for "Specify the location of the driver" and click "Next".
5. Now choose the bottom option for "Display a list of all drivers in a specific location" and click "Next".
6. Double click on the Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller to install this driver.
7. Close the device manager and restart the computer.
8. If the operating system is Win98 or WinME, be sure to enable DMA for any Hard Drives after the restart (see abase #6381).

Good Luck, Dave

I got my PTLE/MBox2 Pro setup working at last

The fix was using a PCI firewire card instead of the onboard VIA one; so the ASUS P5B-E works but not its onboard firewire.

I managed to get hold of this card which seems to work great so far:

NEC PCI uPD72873 IEEE1394 Adaptor

The box is marked ST Lab - PCI Firewire 1394 Controller Card as pictured at:

Greetings friends,

Spkguitar - you are master when it comes to these issues... it seems like you've probably solved over 400 people's problems. I've tried to fix this issue on my own (using a lot of your recommendations from other posts), but I'm at an impasse. I was about to bite the bullet and purchase a new computer, but I thought I'd give it one last try and see if you could see where potential conflicts would be arising. Anyone else who has thoughts, feel free to offer them!

Here's the scenario: I'm running a Lenovo Thinkpad Z60m (Sandra specs below) with the Mbox Mini and PTLE 7.1. Everything worked great for about 3 weeks, and suddenly I started receiving the -9092, -9093, -9094 interrupt errors anywhere from 1-5 minutes into a session during record and playback. I hadn't installed anything new or changed any settings that would have caused this problem. It occurs with the same frequency whether I use my external firewire drive or my internal system drive. I tried disabling all the recommended things (bluetooth, wireless, APCI battery control etc.), running in diagnostic mode, switching to standard IDE controllers, reinstalling PTLE several times... no luck. I'm stumped because many of the other Thinkpad models are compatible, and I can't find any components in this thing that aren't up to Digi specs. The chipset is fine. It's just weird that it was working for 3 weeks and then start having interrupt problems. I thought it might be the external HD (Western Digital seems to have caused problems for a couple of people), but the same thing happens with the same predictability when I record to the system drive. I appreciate any help you can offer - you're my last resort before I have to drop another couple grand on a new laptop. Thank you!

I am using the Mbox2. After having problems on my Dell XPS laptop and a firewire drive, I upgraded to a Tyan Quad. I still get buffer errors. I would love to try a different peice of hardware to rule out the Mbox2 but I am not about to upgrade to the 003 without some assurance that this won't happen with that hardware too.

[/b]Error: The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs often, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size in the Playback Engine Dialog. (-9094)[/b]

Occurs: Can happen in any session but most often occurs during record and playback of sessions with more than 2 or 3 midi tracks or sessions with lots of automation. I am currently running PT 7.1cs10. I don't use any plug-ins that did not come with the ignition pack other than a full version of BFD and a full version of Melodyne Uno. I have separate 10,000 rpm Raptor SATA drives for Windows, Audio, and BFD.

I have reverted back to an Acronis image of a fresh windows install after all tweaks whenever I try a fresh install of Pro-tools. I have tried upgrade to 7.3 but I get massive buffer errors on sessions with only a single audio track after the upgrade to 7.3. (Which I have attempted twice.) Upgrading to 7.3 makes it worse. Going back to 7.1cs10 brings it from unbearable to only very frustrating levels.

I believe I have gone above and beyond in troubleshooting this problem. Unfortunately my Mbox2 is past the free support period.

Steps I have taken:

BIOS tweaks:

System two is a slightly older pc with a amd 2500 cpu and a gigabyte MB with the via chipset
Pro Tools will execute on that one but it will not read the pc card.
I thought getting a Pro Tools setup would be a joyous occasion, but i'm starting to think that paying homeless people to kick me in the crotch would have been a better way to spend my money and less painful ; ;

The problem I'm having is constant interrupts during recording and playback. I've tried changing the buffer size and everything, but that isn't helping. I am constantly reducing/increasing it.

Ladies and Gents, a moment of your time please..

I have had a working system successfully on a previous laptop. Having swapped machines for a brand spanking new dell inspiron 1501, pro tools is playing silly buggers

PC Wizard Report
Mainboard : Dell 0UW744
Chipset : ATI Radeon RS482
Processor : AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-50 @ 1600 MHz
Physical Memory : 1024 MB (2 x 512 DDR2-SDRAM )

The error I experience is the widely reported: the operating system held off interupts for too long. If this occurs frequently, try increasing the "H/W Buffer size" in the Playback Engine panel. (-6086). This occurs almost seconds into playing.

I am suspecting a compatibility issue having worked through the forums and documentation on digidesign but can't see anything that rules out my chipse yet???

Can someone please advise. Many thanks. Mike.

Here is my problem, when i try to load protools i get stop errors involving the DALWDM.sys
i have tried a clean reinstall (format and reinstalled xp, protools 7.3) i have disabled onboard sound, and all of the xp fixes listed in troubleshooting. i have re-seated my firewire and video cards. i have cried like a little girl. also, my second harddrive has disappeared (i have 3 in my computer)

Please Digidesign, I need help.
Read carefully, I included a detailed description of the whole situation.
Isolated problem - people with the same system are working great in Pro Tools.

Problems:
- Pro Tools cursor and counter numbers run sluggish and visually irregular/jumpy
- MIDI performance is terrible - only 10% of random notes are heard with more than 10 seconds of delay
- Unexpected low memory warnings with fairly light samplers and VIs
- The whole Pro Tools application performs a lot worse than on inferior systems - Almost like HD streaming was faulty, or the memory was clogged.

This problem also occurs on OSX to a lesser extent, but the sluggish MIDI performance is still noticeable and definitely not normal.
Plus, I've been talking to users running Pro Tools LE on Windows XP on Boot Camp on Mac Intel, same model, same configuration, with no such problems.

Apple checked the hardware and it is fine.
EDIT: I followed religiously all official windows optimization procedures, as well as the system hardware tweaks for core duos in the digi support documentation, with no noticeable improvement.


System: Pro Tools LE 7.3.1cs2, MBox 2, Windows XP SP2 on Apple MacBook Pro. Two Firewire (Oxford 911 chipset) enclosures connected to the firewire port, all according to Digidesign specifications.

You should start with the steps in the Win XP/ Pro Tools 6.x/7.x General Troubleshooting (http://duc.digidesign.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=802377) thread and let us know if you're still having problems. We'll need to know which version of Pro Tools you're using, which Digidesign hardware you have and how you have everything configured.

Is there a particular reason you're not running Pro Tools in OS X?

Pro Tools is not qualified for use in Boot Camp, so I'm not sure what could be causing the problem. You may want to poll other users who are having success and see if they have any suggestions.

I did that already. they just installed and it ran perfectly.

I know it's not supported. I have windows only software and plug ins that I need to use. OSX also has some sluggishness with virtual instruments though.

I was hoping that you could forget that detail and still try to help me determine the cause of the problem, and maybe even get closer to officially supporting boot camp if we could sort this out!...

Please? Take a look at the sandra report?...

The Sandra report doesn't tell us anything we don't already know, since this isn't a PC. We only use Sandra to see all the different components and such in a PC - since it's a Mac, we already know what they are.

Have you installed anything other than Pro Tools in your Windows partition? Are you using old plug-ins, perhaps?

Yes. And plug ins/virtual instruments without Universal Binary version yet. And a lot of them have paid updates.

Should I try to uninstall all the other software?

But then how do you explain that I notice some sluggishness in OSX too? coincidence?

Hello All,
Long time user first time posting. Just purchased a new Dell Inspiron 6400 and can't get it working. Have tried every work around on the forum (too many to list) and still no luck. The only thing I have not tried is using a PCMCIA card which will allow me to use 6pin-6pin firewire (currently using a 6-pin to 4 pin cable as laptop only has 4 pin connection). I can not understand why this would make a difference, but at this point I am so desperate to get the system running I would do anything. Currenlty running protools 7.1 with a 002r. I have setup many laptops before this one and never had issues like this. Can not get playback at all.

Hi all,

Im getting an error "The Operating System held off interrupts for too long... -6086"

Increasing the H/W buffer size and decreasing the CPU usage limit have no effect.

I have an older laptop: I was told when I bought the Mbox2 that the minimum RAM requirement was 512mb, but when I got home I found out it was actually 768mb. My specs are below.

I know I should have more than 512mb ram and not run protools from my system drive, but my recording needs are basic at the moment: vocal track, guitar track, midi track. Will PTLE 7.3 actually not run under 768mb RAM? Do I need a external hard drive? Please help!

I may have posted this incorrectly before so here goes again:

Hi,

Just purchased an 002 Rack Factory and installed the included software/plugins. The PT software disc is version LE7. (I am yet to install the free update (7.3) email that was emailed by Digidesign).

I keep getting the following error when playing back on one trk with a minimum of plugins used:
"Audio Processing is conflicting with other CPU tasks. If this occurs often, reducing the "H/W buffer size" in the playback engine dialog may help prevent the problem (-9129)"

I have tried disabling HT, done all of the recommended tweaks such as the msconfig startup changes and the usual windows xp audio tweaks recommended in the Digidesign guides. In fact all of the system hardware has been configured for audio performance. I have also made sure that I am streaming audio from the "Music" drive, not the System drive. All USB devices such as modem, webcam were disconnected. The only external hardware connected are the iLok key and the 002R. I am concerned that the chipset (Intel 915P Express) is incompatible even though there are no "confirmed" issues with firewire interfaces such as my Digi 002R, unlike the USB Mbox range which apparently would have conflict issues with a system like mine.

This is deeply concerning and disappointing as I cannot afford to buy a new system just to run PTLE when I have no problems using my trusty Presonus firebox and included Cubase Le software on this system. Any assistance you can offer will be appreciated.

As an aside:
I have moved to Protools as I am beginning an Audio Engineering degree where I will be using it a lot, and had no idea that Digi hardware/software was so temperamental before I purchased it! To be fair, I had not checked this forum before purchasing the 002R, and would have asked more about compatability at the dealer had I known to do so. Even so, I was under the impression that due to the interdependence of the Hardware/Software in Protools, it would be a more solid and stable environment than say - Cubase/My System/3rd party interface - Was I mistaken??? Right now it would appear so, and I really hope that you can offer me a workaround that does not require spending more money, which would be pretty unjust in my humble opinion.

Dag yo!! My brain my brain hurts from trying to figure this out!
I've got a Duo Core 2 Processor PC thats acting like a girl


This is my set up:
Protools 7.3.1 M Box, Korg Triton, M-audio Uno midi sport interface, M-Audio trigger finger, Battery 3 RTAS instrument, M-Audio Key Rig RTAS instrument

This is my problem: Very frequently during MIDI sequencing protools freezes. Large or small session this has been the case. I've updated every driver I can think of but the problem persist.

Also I get increase buffer size interruptions like crazy. (with like one plugin) I didn't have any of these problems with 5.5.3 I recently bought some virtual instruments which 5.3.3 did not support. Then I installed my 6.0 and had MIDI stalling issues. The System ran really slow on my 512 mb pentium 4 system so I upgraded to my current machine (2Gs of ram) and haven't been able to get things running smoothly. Frustration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, folks. Just got a jump start using PTLE 7 @ school. I am checking all requirements and making sure that I fulfill all the system needs to run PT, but I can't find anywhere if my chipset is compatable... it's a ATI Radeon RS482. Graphics is ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. I am having a couple buddies that have a few different versions of PT test on my system, but I wanted to make sure I took care of all the REQ's to run before we test. Any thoughts, opinions, advice, offerings of money will be accepted with the utmost graditude.

Thanks for any info you can help with,

Mike

Hi. After not being able to run it on the new MacBook Pro with Boot Camp, I bought a Dell Poweredge Server, thinking this time Pro Tools would have no reasons to complain. Obviously, I overestimated.

I'm getting the "Operating System held off interrupts for too long... -6086" error
Increasing the H/W buffer size and decreasing the CPU usage limit have no effect. LE 7.3 and 7.3.1cs2.

Hi
New at asking questions, I have been on here as a reader for some time.

But this year my mbox started making this low rumble/crackling sound.
really hard to explain. It makes the noise all the time and changes
pitches as you move the mouse and do things on the computer.

Ive switched out mbox's, that didnt help. I tried my best to restore my computer
to the way it was at the start of the year before it started this and its still there.

Some times the mono button does not work and this morning I was unable to get it to work
at all but then once I got another mbox plugged into the computer (replacing the other one)
it started to work like before.

I can run a session in pro tools fine as long as you can live over the noise.
and once you bounce the project out the noise is gone. So ive attempted lots of stuff
and dont have funding to buy a new computer or upgrade my mbox yet. hope to soon.

Martyk,

Unfortunately your 915G chipset is considered to be incompatible with PT and your mbox2. It also looks like you're attempting to run your system/programs and PT audio files from the same Hard Drive. You need a dedicated drive for your audio files. The chipset issue is the biggie though. You ought to check out the compatibility section in the digi site.

Now, there are folks who are running "incompatible" systems with good results. Go to the "general troubleshooting" sticky and do everything that applies and see what happens. PT is a fussy program and if you do some reading in this forum you'll see that there are quite a few folks having trouble with errors. Every one is directed to run through General Troubleshooting. There's a bunch of things to do and you'll be busy for a while...it might get you lucky though. BTW, Welcome aboard the DUC and sorry to kill your weekend buzz.

hi,

got a problem where after an hour or so using my LE system i get a message saying lost communication with DIGI 002. i've checked all power connections and tried different firewire ports but all to no luck. also i thought it may have been triggered by some software glitch so i left the computer on with pro tools running but no operator using it and still after a while the same thing happens.
i've had the 002 for a few years now and this has only been happening with v7.3 cs2.

all help appreciated.

Sorry I can't get all my information. The computer in question is not online and not in the same building. sorry this is the best i can do for specs

Widnows XP Pro with service pack 2

AMD Athlon x2 3800+ socket 939
1 GB of RAM one from 1 chip
IDE channel 1 = DVD+/-RW DL drive
IDE channel 2 = Maxtor 160GB

Motherboard
Mach Speed MK8-939A VIA chipset
(RAID disabled in BIOS)

1 AGP nVidia 5500 GX graphics card

1 1394 adapter in a PCI slot

Digi 001 card in another PCI slot

External 160GB firewire drive

So my problem is after building this system i installed ProTools 6.4 with the cs9 update and the interlock driver update. when trying to record, nothing happens. the program flinches and then does nothing. when i tried to play an already recorded session i get "Audio processing is conflicting with other CPU tasks" errors. i also noticed that the CPU meter in the system usage window is going crazy. never staying in the same place. I used to use this same digi001 unit on another PC that i sold and upgraded to this PC. the unit served me well for about 2 years. i just cant seem to get it to run on this one. Please help.

Hi,

I have posted before, but I have had no reaction. I'll try it again...

I seem to have the same problem as many others. "try reducing the buffer", half an hour later "try increasing the buffer". I also have problems closing a session and the opening a new one. Sometimes PTLE doesn't react.

I have followed all the instructions displayed in the 'general trouble shooting' post, but still no luck. I'm am going to install 7.3, but I'm not expecting anything to change. Sinds I'm not the only person with this problem, I'm assuming Digidesign is working on it. Though it would be comforting to know this as a fact. Please keep me updated. I think I speak for everyone.

PS. My system specications can be found in a post i did earlier...

Hello there anyone,
I'm thinking about purchasing PT Le 7.3 for an Acer laptop with the following sisandra-report,
can anyone see what problems might occur and if my computer is compatible, cause I'm not much of a computer-connaisseur

greets & thnks

Can I run PTLE in my laptop? some people told me that protools is not compatible with 64 AMD PROCESSORS.
I'm trying to launch Protools LE 6.4 in my labtop but it doesn't work. I followed the instructions on the manual, Protools is already installed and the computer is connected to my Digi 002. Everytime I try to launch Protools I get a blue error screen and my computer re-starts by itself. and some times it says (the application or DLL C:program files-digidesign- protools-paceilui. dll is not a valid windows image please check this against your installation). I uninstalled PT and reinstalled again but I still have the same problem. What can I do?

I am using Protools 7.3 with the mini mbox2, and every time i try to bounce my finish session as a wave all i get is static when i play it. When i bounce as windows media it is extremely distorted. All i can bounce as without being messed up is quicktime but that has a drastic effect on the qualit. Please help

Hello everyone.

I am getting frequent buffer under/overruns. I keep getting the messages to increase/decrease my hardware buffer settings.

Audio processing is conflicting with other CPU tasks. If this occurs often, reducing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the Playback Engine Dialog may help prevent the problem. (-9129)

The operating system held off interrupts for too long. If this occurs often, try increasing the "H/W Buffer Size" in the Playback Engine Dialog. ( -9094)


This happens when I have PTLE 7.1 set to 2 RTAS Processors. Buffers at 1024 tells me to reduce my buffer settings. Buffer at 512 or below tells me to increase my buffer settings.
Back and forth, back and forth.

Here is my Sandra report:


Thanks,
GregJ

Hi all

I have the Digi approved Under $600 system (with an AMD 3800+, the A8N-SLI Premium and X700 video card) running an 002r, and am getting the Flip-Flop Buffer Error messages.

However niggling this may be, my point is I have to bump-start the second core every time to get a balanced load. Anyone else have to do this?

Call up the Windows Task Manager, on the Performance tab there's two CPU graphs. Starting PTLE and opening a session results in only one cpu taking all the strain. Going into Setup -> Playback Engine and adjusting the H/W Buffer size to anything else kicks the second cpu awake.

I've done all the setup tweaks from the troubleshooting thread, re-installing the PACE drivers, the Dualcore Hotfixes (AMD and Windows), trashing the DAE perfs etc, but it still works out the same. It's like this with 7.0 and 7.1. Am I missing something?

Hi, I recently purchased a Carillon Laptop to use in combination with the Mini Mbox 2 and also with SX2 and the Focusrite saffire I/O 26 pro.
Sx2 and the saffire is running smooth ( 12 tracks 96Khz on internal drive ).
Only with Protools there is a ( I guess ?? ) graphic problem, the cursor, level meters and the main and sub counter are "bouncy". Playback and recording is no problem.
The 7.1 is more stable, 7.3.1 not workable.
I followed all the tweeking steps from the DUC, also disabled the virtual memory ( 2 GB ram ).
Anyone here some more ideas ??
Thanks anyway.
