“Disc too slow or system overload” issue w/ Logic has persisted since I bought the computer last year.
What We’ve done:
+ Updated the RAM (32GB) in the Mac Pro
+ Optimized the processor allocation in Logic to use all 8 cores (actual & virtual)
+ We freeze all midi tracks
+ We save after every take
What ha’happn ‘iz
+ Every time we start Logic the HD monitor spikes … it doesn’t always throw an error but it does spike every … Is that right?
+ The frequency of system error during playback and record has increased. More noticeable with bigger project files.
+ Increased occurrences when we updated to to El Capitan OS X
Sometimes it seems like the HD goes to sleep and when it’s waking up the error occurs. Is that possible? How would I prevent that from happening?
I’ve read that some just use a solid state drive as a recording disc … I’ve just invested a buttload in the 6TB 7200 RPM HD … I would have to buy separate controller to retrofit w/ SSDs … I’d want to prove that concept before investing.
We have a project recording studio and used logic. We have protools, and don’t seem to have issues w/ it but the bulk of our work is done in Logic. We are doing more and more live recording w/ paid artists so the loss of a take can be costly to the creative flow and financially too. I’ve have the configuration of how our gear is wired up and am glad to share that as need be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.System Config Illustrationhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/7vr06yt8iz7hou2/RonFlack-TB-config.jpg?dl=0
