-9173 ProTools ran out of CPU power during real time bounce 11.2

With minimal plugins and 2% total CPU displayed on the System Usage meter AAE -9173 abruptly cancels a real-time bounce stating ProTools ran out of CPU power yet offline bounce yields no such error. One DUC user pulled all 3rd party plugins out of the AAX folder with the same results. Rolled back to 11.1.3 and can bounce real time with no issue. 11.2.x problem.

ADC is incorrect with AOS Plug-ins in PT11

Audio from a plug-in using Aux Output Stems (AOS) is not delay compensated properly in Pro Tools 11. Repro Steps: 1. Create one Instrument track and instantiate an AOS enabled VI plug-in such as Strike, Structure, UVI Workstation, etc. 2. Create two stereo Aux tracks and assign the inputs to different AOS outputs from the VI. 3. On the first Aux track, instantiate a plug-in that incurs a delay, such as the Pro Expander ...more »

Entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme intermittently when selecting a Clip

Since protools 8 i've had this intermittent bug that when you select a region sometimes an accidental mouse drag or other trigger occurs and the entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme. the only way to get out of this mode is to select another spot on the timeline. sometimes it takes a few tries to actually get it to stop behaving this way. sorry its not repeatable, its hard to know when its going ...more »

MIDI quantization timing error in 12.6.1

This is an intermittent bug that is very difficult to pin down. When it happens, as perfectly illustrated by the attached screenshots, a quarter note that starts exactly on the downbeat of a bar, displays DIFFERENTLY between the edit window and the midi edit window.

 

The result of this is that clips cut to the bar in the session edit window in grid mode, copy incorrectly.

Select Unused ⌘⇧U Clear Selected ⌘⇧B should remove ALL unused

This function just doesn't work.

You perform it, then you're immediatley able to perform it again which should be impossible.

And again and again.

Then it seems like you've got rid of all unused.

But then you save then restart your session and you can do it again. And again.

Then you save then restart your session and you can do it again.

 

And normally by then you have actually cleared all unused.

Fix -9129 bugs with HD Native cards

This is a too common bug that frequently hassles HD Native users, sometimes making their new systems unusable. ""Audio processing could not complete due to conflicts with other CPU tasks or a potential clocking issue. If this occurs often, verify your sync cables or try changing the HW Buffer Size setting in the Playback Engine dialog. In most cases a larger HW buffer size will prevent the problem. (-9129)" DUC forum ...more »
