smallestleaves Posted April 10, 2017 Share Posted April 10, 2017 Hi there - I know this type of issue has been brought up many times, so you have my apologies in advance if I've missed something - but I'm really struggling to work with my projects at the minute and I think I have tried pretty much every tip and trick that I can find in forums and videos. I am constantly getting 'System Overload' and 'Disk is too slow' error messages and the like when using Logic Pro X. This can happen when running just one track - playing around with the 'Drummer' brought an error message - simply altering the parameters etc. Using the arpeggiator on midi tracks and playing back seems to be a problem as well and just of today editing midi was very glitchy. When I copied midi instrument tracks using the Option key shortcut the copied tracks appeared to play the default electric piano instrument even when the drop down menu was another instrument. Randomly this isn't the case having tried again just now. I have also got the message when recording an electric guitar using Amp Designer a few pedals in the Pedalboard. My current setup is as follows - I have a late 2012 Mac Mini that has 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 and I installed 16GB of RAM myself. I also transferred all Logic libraries as well as a few other libraries that I use in Kontakt over to an external SSD. I run the projects directly from the SSD as well (USB 3.0). I am using a Digidesign 002 Rack working with old drivers (could this be the source of all my issues??). I have utilised the 4 core setup in Logic's preferences and I have tried increasing and decreasing buffer size accordingly depending on whether I'm recording a live instrument or working with a software instrument. I would really appreciate some guidance on the setup I should have. What's really got me stumped is that the issue seems relatively recent - these errors did not use to come up when I first started working with Logic. I also can't see how my iPad mini seems to be able to handle more recording power using drummer tracks and an iRig guitar setup easily with no issues in GarageBand!! Strange! Apologies if I have stated the obvious or there is a glaring omission/ obvious lack of knowledge - I am quite knew to all of this and trying to find my way! Thanks so much in advance.
