gdgross Posted December 23, 2011 Share Posted December 23, 2011 2011 MacBook Pro 17" quad core 8GB ram, 750GB internal HD only Logic 9 Some internal plugins, some UAD plugins with the UAD solo-2 expresscard device I'm getting the disk too slow error fairly frequently now. I've increased the buffer size to the max (1024) and frozen about half the tracks in the project. (usually I'll keep the original comp, bounce to a new track and do all my editing/plugins/etc on the new track, so I can get back to the original comp or takes if needed. Then I'll mute/freeze/hide the original comp/take folder track.) The error is happening on multiple projects. Do I need to move the audio to an external drive? If so, what's the best way? My interface is an apogee ensemble (uses the FW 800 port on the MBP) and typically I'll have a monitor plugged into the thunderbolt port when I'm tracking as I keep the MBP in another room since the fan gets a little noisy sometimes. That means I'd have to daisy chain, using either FW400 (ensemble only has FW400) or thunderbolt. (I assume there are thunderbolt HDs out there, but I haven't looked...) Would daisy chaining on the FW port affect the ensemble's performance in any way? Thanks! Geoff Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
