Default Re: Two jobs due and Pro Tools won't work!!!

This may sound totally crazy but I've stabilized my system and solved that problem months ago. I reduced the CPUs to just 3. On an i7 with 4 real cores this implies that 1 real core and 1 virtual core = 3 are good enough for my work. I'm guessing that the plug-ins like that mix and I tend to use a lot of plugins.

Your workflow is different than mine so this may not help.

You have nothing to lose at this point so why not try this? You may find some setting that works for you.

My settings
Host Processors - 3
CPU usage limit 90%
DAE buffer size = Level 2
Cache Normal

I don't think anything else matters. At least not for my systems.

If you do decide to play with this, take care - my system would crash if I played with the Host Processor setting if a session was loaded.

best of luck.

Thanks for all of your help guys, I appreciate it. I called a friend of mine who's an audio post engineer and he told me to try losing the reverbs in my session. I did and it helped, but considering the specs of the machine that I was using, there's no reason why that amount of reverbs would have bogged it down like that.

All I can say is that, it works now, and I was able to finish the job.
