Default Processor & Midi Help Needed

I'm running ProTools LE 7.0 through a Mac Powerbook and have recently started recording with Midi.

In the latest song i've been working on i've used loads of Midi tracks and Xpand plug-ins and my processor can't keep up with this when i try to bounce the mix to my drive and it stalls or leaves jumps in the bounce. Is there a way around this?

I mean, is there a way to change the midi tracks to normal audio files once they're complete or something?

I don't want to lose any quality or anything, I just assumed there must be a way to solve this problem.

Hope someone can help,

Default Re: Processor & Midi Help Needed

EZ to do...I would assign the outputs of Xpand channels to the inputs of new audio tracks. Make your Xpand and midi tracks inactive, except for the one that you are recording. Then solo and record them one at a time. You don't have to bounce to do this. Then, make sure all Xpand/midi tracks and channels are made inactive. That will add tracks, but help the CPU. Then mix and bounce like before. This should help.
