Default PT 2024.3.1 - Sonoma 14.4.1 - unresponsive AGAIN

So frustrated.

Something changed and now my Sessions will load but as soon as I try to do *anything* I get the beachball-of-death. PT goes unresponsive and I have to force-quit.

Yes yes. I'll do the remove-all-plugins hassle again. But this time, only to export stems because I've finally had my fill of wasting hours of precious hard-to-find time fighting my DAW.

I have 1 computer and don't have the luxury of freezing a working system in amber. Oh well. I love PT, when it works, which isn't often enough.

Go rogue and install latest beta of 14.5 -- in here works much better than release version of 14.4.1

That's the usual sign of Pro Tools having trouble talking to your audio interface. So check your audio interface and its drivers.

I have a Lynx Aurora (n) which about once a month decides to go on the fritz. There's no visual sign that it's not functioning properly, it simple doesn't respond to PT and CoreAudio in the normal ways. A simple power cycle brings it back online.

I mention this because, yes, it was the cause of problems similar to the OP's. That very first time it happened I had no idea that it was the interface and I checked just about everything else. That was half a day's work wasted. Repaired in 10 seconds.

Good suggestions - thank you.
I'll try power-cycling the audio interface. If that doesn't work I'll (re)enable Beta OS updates. if that doesn't work? We'll see.

This keeps happening & I'm so tired of the constant struggle to just make incremental progress on the handful of songs I coax along.

First World Problems, I suppose.

I hope you can figure out what's tripping it up. Not to rub salt into a wound but to offer encouragement: PT 2024.3.1 and OS 14.4.1 has been one of the most stable combos in recent memory. I did have some issues but deleting the plugin cache (and resetting the interface as mentioned) took care of that.

Glad it worked out, and hopefully it won't happen again but if it does you'll know what to try.
