Default CPU overload on a i7 quad - Mac OS X 10.6.8

I'm currently experimenting with a test project under OS X 10.6.8 (Hackintosh - on which everything else is very stable).

Wonder if this might be related to fact that this project was originally done in another studio with PT HD, or anything else I can try differently: I get a CPU overload window and project stop (suggesting I can increase buffer size in Engine Playback - which I tried to increase from 512 samples to 1024, but it keeps doing it. Also tried to turn most drum verb plug-in to inactive (another suggestion was to turn off plug-ins, although I don't have that many...)

Total tracks on this project is about 10 tracks, so not really huge.

Any insight?

Mac OS X Catalina (latest) (on Mac mini 2018) 6-core Intel i7 32GB ram 3.2 GHz. Interface: Universal Audio Apollo X4 (Thunderbolt 3 connection)
