In ProTools 12.8.2 (perpetual), everything was running fine.
Suddenly, I had issues with intermittent pausing during session playback, plug-ins freezing then loading, meters freezing in place. However, ProTools didn't crash - just odd pausing 2 to 3 times every other minute on multiple functions as mentioned. Could a large buffer setting cause this issue (1024)?
Not really sure what could be causing this. I'm running on Windows 7 with an i7-6700K with 8.00 gigs of RAM. There have been no issues until the latest update.
