System Overload - The audio engine was not able to process all required data in time
      18/04/11 08:59 PM
Hey Guys,

"System Overload - The audio engine was not able to process all required data in time"

So i'm beginning to get this all the time on a project I'm working on in Logic 8 Studio.

Now I've had this problem before and was told to change my buffer settings to a higher value than when recording, which I have done. [currently at: 512 samples]

However it still overloads.

I've now frozen every single track except the ones I am working on and still no luck or improvement.

There are a lot of edits in the project and 38 channels of audio. I'm using auxiliaries for verbs [space designer - only 2 instances].

Each channel has EQ and maybe half or less have compression.

My mac laptop specs: 2Ghz Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAM, HDD 7200RPM.

Am I just running too much audio and pushing my system too hard?

Cheers for any replies,

Martyn
