Default My whole system crash when i set my H/W Buffer Size @ 128 Samples or less

Hello Friends,

I just got a 002 and I got a super weird crash on my system tonight. I run my 002 on a P3 1Ghz, 512 RAM with one firewire card dedicated only for my 002. I’ve been running this for 10 days, and it was great until today. All began when I had a friend to come over and record some bass lines. He is a SHRED, and what happened is that he noticed some latency. Then I went to my Playback Engine and I put 256 samples. The problem was minimized, but not solved yet. Then I tried to put 128 samples and my system totally CRASHED. PT was unresponsive for several minutes, and then a message that an abnormal thing happened and the program would be shut off came. Well... I had turned off my PT and the FADERS on my 002 where in the same place still. (Every Time that I turned the program off, the faders would automatically go back to the bottom of the mixer) Then I restarted PT and I notice that I had not a thing came on the 002’s displays, and obviously the PT couldn’t find any hardware. After that I restarted the whole system again, even left the 002 for 2 minutes. I had a message that PT was trying to reconfigure my Playback Engine, and once again I got PT unresponsive and once again I had to restart my system. I started PT again and finally I got the program to work, but at this time my 002 was unresponsive by the program. Then when I went back to my Playback Engine and switched back to 256 samples and immediately I got a life signal from 002. All that sucks and my questions are, why can’t I use 128 samples or less on the playback engine with my 002? Is someone out there that has experienced the same problem? Is that any way to fix that? HELP PLEASE…. Latency Sucks!

I don't know why your system crashed.I hav'nt heard one like that before.You can alleviate most of your latency with Low Latency monitor checked.
