Default Re: AAE 9173 Pro Tools ran out of CPU power

I was getting the error and I'd read somewhere (most likely this forum) that diabling AV etc would be worth a go and that did work for me too. I could see the spikes on the system usage window and the spikes stopped once I disabled AVG and Malwarebytes.

To note, I'd get the error when recording multiple tracks down into a single stereo track.

I hope that helps someone.

Try moving your project from the external drive to an internal drive if it is on one. It worked for me to fix the Pro Tools ran out of CPU power. AAE 9173 error.

Hello !
fix issue for you : disable turbo boost the processor
I also have error 9173 for some time, I have a Macbook pro 11.3 Sierra and protools 12.7. To lower the temperature of the processor and to make it a little quieter I installed Turbo boost switcher (free) allow the app in your firewall and a miracle: 9173 errors no longer appear!

Good luck !

sorry of my language, I'm a french man.

Guys come on gee... Anti virus software causes problems, memory leaks cause problems... we know that.

You are supposed to have AV software disabled, or better yet uninstall it and protect your computer by being careful what you let touch it.

Memory leaks... have and always likely will be issues... and very likely caused by plugins. You have to try to track down if they are caused by plugins or not and try to identify the plugin, check plugins are up to date, pull out all third party plugin files, trash prefs etc. it is nearly useless to report you have a memory leak and not go the extra few steps to try to do some quick troubleshooting.

These kind of reports concern me, not that folks are wasting their own time, but improper setup and inadequate troubleshooting helps distract from what may be more serious underlying issues that do need Avid developer level attention. And if basic optimization like disabling AV software is not done what other user mistakes are on those systems?
