Default playback engine settings

Mac Pro 2.8 ghz quad core intel xeon 3gb RAM, 1TB internal drive, 3 500gb internal drives to record to-- audio allocated to all three equally
running osx 10.6.6

Probably more info than necessary... how many processors should we set in the playback engine?

Default Re: playback engine settings

Try one less processor than it has available... that's working great for me on what appears to be the same machine.

Warmest Regards,
