Default system lags

hey all... how you guys. and girl doing?
i seem to have a problem, i had a session earlyer yesterday morning and all was weel with my HD system(muh baby) and well not any more...see when i want to record and play at the same time from the start of the song i seem to have a lag of about four to five second then it will start recording...any thought on this, one of my workers was tring to figure it out but no luck...anyhw i was able to deal with it, but its pain in the @$$!, if any one could tell me what i need to do to fix that it would be great.

Default Re: system lags

Check in your preferences that allocating the entire drive for recording is not set and set the time to roughly 30-60 minutes. This should do it.

Previous post absolutely right but I would add that you should also check your disc allocations.
Maybe some tracks are targeted on the wrong drives.

I use external SCSI drives for sessions, and when I started with PT I used templates.
If ever I forgot to change disk allocations, it would write tracks on the internal 5400rpm drive in the mac and everything would get soooo sloooow, exactly as you describe !

I have a similar problem, it's probably due to me over looking something though. When I hit record, theres a delay, so I have to use quick punch alot. I've gone through and can't find a pre-count for record. Turned the midi one off with no success.
