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.

The Avid Video Engine doesn't work. its not as bad as it was in earlier versions of PT 11, but it still is unacceptable in a professional environment. As a freelancer in NYC I have yet to see a studio running the AVE and video hardware that doesn't have problems. Its been over a year and a half and the best solution to use video is to disable video hardware and run a quicktime window! Constantly getting "waiting for ...more »
- Install PT 12.8.2 R2 on macOS 10.12.6 - Open a session with a fair number of audio tracks (ex. 20, all with clips), or create a new session and add tracks/clips. - Scroll around the edit window or the mix window. (Horizontal and Vertical) >> Noticeable GUI lag, and some temporary GUI freezes. Unusable interface. Temporary workarounds: - Clean install macOS 10.12.6 and PT 12.8.2 R2 on new SSD >> Not effective, same ...more »
ProTools 12.5 is unable to reliably open and play any video. This seems independent of video format (DNxHD, h.264, ProRres) Rolling back to 12.4 and there are no such problems. Seems many others are having similar problems.
on HDX there is an error that occurs occasionally where a very noticeable delay randomly appears on record enabled tracks when recording or even when transport is not running. It seems to be ADC related and was not present on older HD systems. As this issue appears both on ProTools HD 10 and 11, it seems to be hardware (firmware) related. There have been various reports of what may be the cause, including certain (non-DSP) ...more »
just installed 12.6.1 on MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6, upgraded from 12.5.2. Full Screen mode no longer works. I click the green button, and it just (vaguely) Maximizes the window, instead of entering Full Screen. This makes Pro Tools break the standard of MacOS since at least Mountain Lion, and is a severe hindrance to usability on small screens like a laptop. The standard for MacOS is that clicking the green button enters ...more »
Avid, actually fix this huge problem and stop pretending that you have.
The CPU utilization jumps to 100% for no reason, even without any tracks recorded. Please fix this. The problem happens on my system with an i9-7900X processor with 64GB RAM. This system is far more powerful than 99% of all PCs out there, yet Pro Tools will spike the CPU to 100% when low-latency is utilized. This is unacceptable. I have used Pro Tools for decades, but this is not being fixed and it is becoming ...more »
Random errors -9171 and -9172 when recording or playing back a session. There is no indicating pattern to it's occurrence Sometimes it happens with only 1 track. It seems to happen at lower buffer sizes, but most of us have to run at 256 or lower when tracking. This is a show stopper as it can happen right in the middle of the prized vocal take! This has been around ever since I have been using HDX with Pro Tools 10, ...more »
Compared to ProTools 10 the video engine playback delay is way to big. It is almost a second from hitting space to play.
That`s way to long for a professional HDX system in a professional studio on a new Mac Pro. Pro Tools 10 is instant playback. Really fast and flowing.
Please fix this or give us the option to work with the old quicktime engine when needed. Thanks
We've all been there... A CPU error stops playback and then the CPU meter is peaking, rendering the session unusable until we find the problem plugin(s). Usually it's ONE plugin that is malfunctioning. BUT, to find that plugin can take dozens of minutes! Is it possible to automatically colour the likely culprit(s) RED after a CPU error? This would be such a time saver for so, so many of us. Of course, we'd prefer no ...more »
