Default Ram Error

I keep getting a RAM error. My PT Session is pretty small (maybe 14 tracks). I have 32 gigs of RAM in my Mac and 20 assigned to Pro Tools.

Any ideas are helpful'

Default Re: Ram Error

20GB to disk cache seems like overkill to me and the message you show supports that(its telling you that 19 of the 20GB is unused, while the computer is only allowed to use the 12GB left). Mine is set to 5GB(also 32GB total) and that works fine for my average 60-70 track song session.

Also, since you posted this in the PT12 section, what OS are you running? Is it a supported combination of PT version and OSX version? If you click the link up top named Learn & Support, you can navigate to the compatibility info to see which versions of PT are supported on the version of OSX that you are running.
