Logic X problem with recording - disc too slow - yosemite


Recommended Posts

Hi, I know that this topic is quite popular but I didnt find any solution yet…

This is what happend to me:


During the recording audio (18 track without running any effects or plugins), logic has stopped a few times and dialog box appeared: disk too slow or system overload.

I’m working on new iMac with 1T SSD drive!!! I have 840GB of free space… I'm using the computer only for audio and video work.

I turned off any other application during the recording, maybe accept safari, I cant remember, but I wasn't using it at all…

I have Logic pro X ver. 10.1 and Yosemite 10.10.1

Please let me know if You found a solution of this problem...
