Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing Pro Tools performance, part of Pro Tools 9 Essential Training.
In this video, I'm going to explain some of the key settings that affect how…Pro Tools interacts with your computer, and why you should adjust them for…improved performance.…Let's go to this Setup menu and choose Playback Engine.…First, make sure that the Current Engine matches the peripheral you chose in the…Hardware Setup window.…Let's talk about some of these settings down here.…First, let's look at the CPU Usage Limit.…The CPU Usage Limit is the amount of your computer's total processing power…assigned to Pro Tools.…
For example, if you assign 85% of your computer's power to Pro Tools, 15% is left…for other applications, including your operating system.…On this system, we're actually allowed to choose up to 99%, and that's because…this is an 8-core multiprocessor.…Your computer might only be able to go up to about 90% if you don't have a…multi-core processor.…The only reason not to boost this all the way to the limit is if you're going…to be running other intensive programs on your computer at the same time as Pro Tools.…
