Re: Random new error message in 2021.7??

Yeah. Something with PT 2021.6/2021.7 or a plugin or the OS is doing something in the background that is affecting Protools. Therefore people are seeing freezing, beachballs, or odd error messages....

Re: Random new error message in 2021.7??

Your initial post said that when you went back to 2021.6, the problem persisted. Your latest post sounds like 2021.6 using "your" clean install is now working all day without issues. It sounds like...

Re: Random new error message in 2021.7??

Wait...clean install includes a wipe of the hard drive (or ssd) and a fresh install of the OS. This means the desktop (where you put your plugins folder) is gone too. The point of a "clean" install...

Re: Random new error message in 2021.7??

What plugins are installed on your system. I'd start there. Did these problems happen even before installing the plugins after the clean install?

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

I am a hobbyist nowadays (previously project studio owner). Since I no longer have paying clients nor projects stacked up to the roof, I have the time to do a clean install most of the time. I'm on...

Re: 2021.7 won't open & Older versions no longer available

There have been widespread reports of UI lagginess and beachballs with PT 2021.7 for some people (not all). For some a "clean" install helped but not everybody has the time to try that (or accept...

Re: Can only use 1024 Samples

You got a powerful laptop, so match that performance with a decent audio interface to do audio/film-making work. Don't take this the wrong way, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733QS laptop is primarily...

Re: Can only use 1024 Samples

Your limitation of 1028 samples "might" be due to the generic ASIO driver. Using a dedicated audio interface for Protools will allow a more robust dedicated driver to utilize different buffer...

Re: Can only use 1024 Samples

Are using an audio interface or just running through the built-in system audio (mic in and speaker/headphone out? Have you loaded the proper driver for your audio interface?

That is worrisome. If you can't run a Sandra report, that tells me that something is not right. It may not be the cause of your issues in this thread, but I would definitely want to know why a...

Re: PT 2021.7- iMac Catalina- Thunderbolt HD Native grayed out as Playback Engine Opt

Thanks for checking for shared driver usage by user accounts on the system. Is it possible some other application or utility is grabbing the driver? Perhaps QuickTime, GarageBand, MainStage,...

Re: PT 2021.7- iMac Catalina- Thunderbolt HD Native grayed out as Playback Engine Opt

My first guess is that since the HD Native Card via Thunderbolt/AVID Omni uses a single client driver, when the iMac user profile has it selected as the preference for system sounds "(any browser,...

Re: Logic and PT sharing the same interface

If you are able to use the Apogee Element 88 simultaneously with both Protools and Logic, then it seems the Apogee driver is multi-client. They do boast about their robust drivers so this is...

Re: Presonus studio live 24-4-2

I assume you meant you are using PT 2021 (not 2011). The Presonus Studio Live 24-4-2 mixer was available to work with Protools back in the days of Protools 9, 10, and 11. That was when Avid stopped...

Re: GUI short freeze and beachball still on 2021.7

I'm sorry to hear that it didn't work for you. You are correct that it does not seem to work for everybody. But for some, it does work. I hope I don't come across as I'm pushing this as a proven...

Re: GUI short freeze and beachball still on 2021.7

I don't know if this is a fix or not, but a couple of us did a clean install of the OS (in our case it was Big Sur) from scratch (not factory install). Then a fresh install of Protools 2021.7 (not...

Re: Loss of Playback Engine Mid-Session

Display monitors do tend to use up quite a lot of thunderbolt bandwidth depending on the resolution (4K or higher especially). I suspect the display monitors also require a significant power draw...

Re: Spinning ball for 3 seconds

I did this to my primary Protools system and don't get any beachballs. Now I don't claim to be a heavy hitter, more of just a hobbyist nowadays. I use MacOS 11.5.2 (Big Sur) but not on an M1-based...

Re: Pro Tools Freezes While Loading

Re: ProTools.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Did you uninstall the previous version of Protools and then install the new Protools? For Windows, this is necessary when going to Protools 2021.x.
