Default Is anyone with a 6-Core Westmere experiencing 9092-4 errors?

I currently have a 8 core Harpertown Mac Pro, and I just bought the HD Native card. I'm getting 9092, 9093 and 9094 errors in the middle of tracking ... I could be tracking a single mono audio track and a midi track, with no plugins, 256 buffer, at 96k, and it stops me in the middle of a perfect take.

I've been on the phone with Avid and done every possible test ... trashing prefs and databases, disabling ethernet, time machine, spotlight, etc and creating a new user ... moving all plugins to the unused folder, etc. I'm still getting interrupted in the middle of takes (and occasionally while mixing), so I'm looking into a new Mac Pro, since there seem to be so many issues with the Native Card and the Harpertown.

So I was wondering who here had the Native card and the six core, and what your experiences have been. Four grand is a lot to spend on a new computer so I want to really be sure I won't get interrupted in the middle of vocal takes. The improvements in speed and sound over the older HD cards are substantial

I also have a UAD-2 Quad card and Apogee Symphony IO (I tested the system without these also), so if you working with these how are they working on your system?

Thank you so much for the help, I really appreciate it

Sorry to hear about your issues. I have a 12-core but I've found that a lot of users are getting great performance (and usually better performance) from the 6-core 3.33GHz over either of the 8/12-core machines due to the faster clock speed.

It's a long shot but have you tried a clean install? might be worth a try before you drop the cash on a new machine. $4k is no small sum. My 1st Gen Dual 1.8 GHz G5 lasted me 5 -6 years before it crapped out on me. I'd expect a 2008 machine to last as long.

Try creating a new system partition for Pro Tools only. Double checking that you only install drivers you need for running Pro Tools and Pro Tools related devices. Do not install any driver that has a Utility. Disable all Utilities otherwise.

I run a Westmere 6 core, and yes i do get those errors. Doesn't matter how many tracks, plugins, sample rate. It kind of pisses you off because i never saw this with the 003 rack i used to own.

I have a 8-Core 2008 Mac Pro, I had some ram installed that was not uniform. 2 x 1gb and 2 x4gb sticks installed. I was getting 9092 errors alot during mixing and tracking. I took out the 2 x1 gb sticks and just have the 2x 4 gb sticks in and it seems to be running 10x's better. Still get the occasional 9092 or 9094 error. The 9094 error is really frustrating because it identifies a Firewire buss unable to keep up......I'm not using any firewire devices...go figure.

Anyway, make sure you RAM is uniform and setup correctly between the two ram trays. Just ordered some more ram, I'll let you know if that helps.

Switch your Mac Pro off. Switch it back on and hold down command+option+P+R keys before grey screen appears. Wait until it reboots again and wait for the system to load.
Shut down your mac again. Unplug the power. Hold down power button and release it after at least 5 seconds. Plug the power back on. Turn the computer on.

After that 9092 errors (and some other numbers) should disappear. It worked like a charm on my Mac Pro Nehalem 2.66 with PT HD Native and two UAD2 Quad cards. I had those errors every time I inserted an UAD plugin during playback. It doesn't happen anymore after resetting PRAM and NVRAM.

I have 6 gigs of matching RAM

I am running 10 of the 12 processors Running PT 9.0.3

Mostly Digi or Kontact ( Slate drums)
I usually only track 1 or 2 channels analog at a time. @ 64 samples, no plugs while tracking
I have mixed sessions up to 40 tracks with something like 54 plugins, but they are mostly non CPU hogs. EQs Comps some reberbs.
I am lovin' this machine.
