Default AAE -9173 errors, MacBook Pro 15 inch, Mid 2012, PT11.1.2, New SSD's and RAM

Hello ,

Macbook Pro, HD11, Universal Audio setup (full specs below).

Problem: AAE -9173 errors

I after switching to SSD's and doubling my RAM from 8 to 16GB last week, I have been getting AAE -9173 errors. This new RAM passed a memtest. for the SSD's Trim Support is enabled.

Even in sessions that use only about 20-50% of my UA resources, and the average total CPU on the Pro Tools System Usage meters (disk 1%. memory 15%).

Regarding the most recent error:
Session format: 24bit/44.1Khz, BWAV

Less than 20 mono audio tracks, a half dozen stereo tracks, dozen mixed mono, stereo auxes. Very small. I would generally have few if any issues on a session this small before I increased RAM and switched to SSD's.

I hope someone has some insight … I would love a (more) stable rig.

Suggestions?



My system:

MacBook Pro 15 inch, Mid 2012


* Processor: 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7

* Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 {purchased recently, passed metest twice]

* Software: OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)

* Internal Drive 1 (system drive): Samsung SSD 840 EVO 1TB

* Internal Drive 2 (optical bay, record drive): Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB

* Trim Support: Yes



DAW:


* Pro Tools HD11.1.2


* Playback Engine: Universal Audio Apollo

* H/W Buffer Size: 1024 Samples
* Host Engine Ignores Errors during Playback/Record: OFF
* Dynamic Plug-in Procession: OFF
* Video Engine Enable: OFF




Interface:


* Universal Audio Apollo Quad, Thunderbolt Card

Am I seeing this right, Eric? Do you not have an external drive (hard drive or SSD)?

I'm not a tech, just the forum admin, but here's what I would try.

Is there any way you can try a different recording drive, adding an external drive some way (to eliminate the possibility that the SSD connected via optical drive bay is a factor)?

Apple also officially only supports 8GB memory for this model. I Don't think it's the reason for your trouble, because it might just be that Apple didn't have suitable 16GB sticks to test when that model was introduced. Just sayin'

Update:

Ok, I went through (like I am a newbie) and checked every single item on this list:

[find by searching]
Avid Knowledge BaseMac Guide - Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Optimizations and Troubleshooting

Also, I have (just installed) turned off Virus protection when pro tools is on.

Things seem better. I will update with thread when I have more info. Thank you all so far.

Well, this problem is back. Makes no sense.

This thread didn't help:
http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/e...kbase&filter=0


Also, It has been crashing numerous times today, just closing a session, OR switching playback engine.

I swapped the OWC 16GB Ram back to the mac 8GB ram sticks, numerous times, no change (-9173 and the crashes above).
